One of the best fun New Year's day activities in London, Flight Club is bringing you a winning combo of tasty food, drinks and social darts. Ease the hangover on free-flowing pizza and a bottle of bubbly, before taking to your own private oche and trying for a bullseye.

Supercharged Sparkle

After a week of sleeping on a blow-up mattress with only your childhood sleeping bag for cover, it's no wonder family tensions can start to boil over by January the 1st. Instead of remote control battles and pass-agg comments, however, relieve the stress with some good old-fashioned games. From Monopoly to ping pong, these bars promise to be an awful lot cheaper than family therapy, and probably more fun too.
