What they say:

Get your vocal cords warmed up and your hamstrings stretched because there’s a new live music bar in town – and they want you to control the music. Brought to you by the people behind The Piano Works, expect moody lighting, a cool bar and a stage where two piano vocalists join a six-piece band to give you live music till the early hours. On every bar are special napkins, which you can write your favourite songs on to be performed by the band. No more shouting at the DJ play Kanye West all night – these guys play for you.

What we say:

Studio 88 is all about the music, but they don’t stop there. Should you work up an appetite with all the dancing, they serve up a selection of California Cones – delivered by Usherettes and filled with fresh treats inspired by the coast of California and the pan-Atlantic – for you to enjoy, and their bar has a mean cocktail offering to boot. If all that impresses you, Studio 88 offers a cocktail masterclass for groups, as well as a ‘Can’t Sing Choir’ for you and your mates who aren’t as talented in the voice department. You’ll be on The Voice in no time.
