Team DesignMyNight - where we're drinking this week...

By Luke Sillett.

Here at DesignMyNight we stay on the ball by scouring London for the best bars, clubs, pubs and events so you don't have to. Naturally, this involves testing out the good, the bad and the quirky (it's a hard life...)

Stay up to date on the team's whereabouts right here! Take a look at what we have planned for this week:

Monday 8th October

With the rest of the team looking a bit tired, our spritely wordsman Lewis is heading down to the Cadogan Arms in Chelsea for the evening. We've already heard good things about the hearty food and selection of beers on offer, so watch this space for the full low-down in Lewis' review! 

 Looks cosy, no? 

Tuesday 9th October

We've been invited back down to one of Soho's newer haunts, Bitter Sweet. Given it's on a Tuesday we really should be sensible, but with all those tempting bespoke cocktails on offer it would be rude not to try a few of them, right?


The party really gets going later on at Bitter Sweet -  so make sure you get on the guestlist. 

Wednesday 10th October

In the spirit of London cocktail week, Wednesday night will see DesignMyNight co-founder and all round happy-chap Nick visit the Buffalo Bourbon Empire pop-up in Covent Garden. The Buffalo Bourbon Empire pop-up, which promises a mix of delicious cocktails and rockabilly music, is only open until October 26th - so don't miss out! We've been keeping tracks of the best and new pop-ups in London, so you should probably check that out too.

The Buffalo Bourbon Empire is running from 8th - 26th October in Covent Garden.

Thursday 11th October

Thursday night will see resident booty-shaker-extraordinaire Simone have a right lovely time with Busta Rhymes no less.

Good old Busta is performing at the decadent DSTRKT club in Soho; even megastar Rhymes should be impressed with the grandeur of this impressive club. 

Here's hoping Simone and Busta hit it off! (so I can make him my best friend)

The rest of the team are back in Chelsea on Thursday and heading down to Honky Tonk to check out this exciting new rock n roll party bar and restaurant. Can't wait to try the sliders! Could be a fun place for our Christmas party? hmmmmm...

Right, that's me sorted, what is everyone else drinking?

Friday 12th October

The weekend starts here and to shake loose Team DesignMyNight are off for some dinner, drinks, and ping pong (yep, you heard me right!). We're off to Bounce in Holborn, a new ping pong inspired restaurant that serves up delicous food, cocktails AND allows you to have a good old game of table tennis. Here's hoping it doesn't get too competitive and we're all still friends on Monday.

 Looks like table tennis is making a real comeback in London - check out all these ping-pong bars!

Saturday 13th October

Saturday welcomes another In Sessions clubnight at Fire in Vauxhall. After such glowing reviews this morning from our very own Nick who went to the John Digweed takeover at Fire over the weekend, a few of the team are pretty keen to party on down this coming Saturday, when Fire hosts urban lifestyle magazine RWD's 11th birthday party.

Is it Saturday yet?


Sunday 14th October

With friends visiting from out of town this weekend, it didn't take me long to think of where I will take them on Sunday for a spot of lunch and a drink or two. The Hackney Pearl is my friendly local and I'm not being biased when I say the homemade food is pretty special. This bar also doubles up as a great place for a Bloody Mary if it's one of 'those' mornings...

If you're not going to be in the area, check out the other great places for Sunday Lunches in London.

Great food, good prices and a lot of cake. You really can't argue with that.
