The Grand in Clapham hosts two stunning club nights this August, drawing in Garage and Hip Hop lovers from all over the capital. First welcoming DJ Yoda for a History of Hip Hop set, the venue then invites DJ Luck and MC Neat to pay tribute to the UK Garage scene by playing everyone's favourite garage tracks. Thick Lonyo, Craig David and Daniel Beddingfield. Full of phat beats and heavy bass, these events won't be forgotten anytime soon.
To celebrate the work of some of Hip Hop's B.I.Ggest artists and groups, Hip Hop Brunch will be putting on a number of afternoons throughout August, letting you unwind to your favourite songs while tucking into a delicious 3-course meal. With bottomless cocktails served between 12-1 pm and an impressive food menu boasting all your favourite Southern dishes, Saturday afternoons just got a whole lot better.
Speedboats, cocktails, sunsets and a banging summertime playlist? Don’t be surprised if you’re sat next to James Bond when taking your seat at Thames Lates. Hop on board and strap in for one of the coolest summer experiences in London, as you jet down the river for the 50-minute ride of your life. There’s big tunes on the speakers, cocktails from the London Cocktail Club and award-winning comedian guides to keep you entertained.
Wash down cocktails with one of the most charming afternoon teas in London this August as Tonic & Remedy come out to play. Not only hosting all of your clotted needs amongst a roster of savoury dishes, there's a selection of mastered cocktails for you to tuck into too.
Popularly known as one of the best comedy clubs in central London, the Covent Garden Comedy Club prides itself on delivering only the biggest names on the international circuit right now. Each show sees three completely hilarious comics take to the stage alongside one compere, and your ticket offers both 15% off at the Lulivo Italian restaurant and free entry for an after party at Opal!
This is no ordinary quiz night. It’s more of a massive disco in pub quiz format, as Sounds Familiar leave the boring trivia questions at home and come armed with their record box instead. The drill is pretty simple; they’ll play a snippet of a famous song, and it’s up to you to scribble down the artist and the track’s name. Audience participation is a big deal, and terrible singing / dad-at-a-wedding dance moves are encouraged.
POPdown were voted as the 6th best pop-up in the world last year, and that was just four months after their initial launch! Returning to take London’s foodie scene by storm once more, catch them at Borough Market this month, where they’ll be cooking up a seasonal, Asian-styled 5-course tasting menu inspired by the market traders and their produce.
