Last time we checked, it's pretty unusual to find yourself standing on the tables, arms around a complete stranger, screaming out the words to Livin' On A Prayer at the end of a quiz night. This is the norm at Sounds Familiar. A raucous disco in the form of a pub quiz, these guys part with the boring trivia and instead focus on sweet music. Terrible singing and shoddy dance moves are welcome.

This internationally-acclaimed magician is hosting a series of events from the opulent Grand Royal, promising baffling tricks, old school charm and a massively captivating performance.

Flight Club Bloomsbury

If you're going to talk about Flight Club, do it really loudly, all the time to everyone you meet because it's great and we're spreading the world across the city. Unfortunately sans Brad (we know), this place is all about social gaming like never before. Ping pong is well yesterday now. This is the dawn of DARTS. We're welcoming a new age of drinking and darting ... come and join us in either Bloomsbury or Shoreditch

31 events @ Secret London Location with 31 upcoming dates from 23 Jun 2018 until 29 Dec 2018

With an impressive food menu, ranging from lemon and chilli chicken wings to delicious aged steak burgers, Hip Hop Brunch hope to add a Southern feel to your Saturday afternoons. Alongside the delectable 3 course meal, you'll have the chance to spit some lyrics and impersonate your favourite rappers during Hip Hop Karaoke. How better to spend a Saturday afternoon than by butchering a rendition of 'Juicy'.
