This July in London, be taken back to the Golden Age days of live jazz, late night debauchery, bathtub gin and flappers. The Candlelight Club are in town and they're set to host a series of glamorous soirees where you'll be dancing, drinking and getting merry as if it were the 1920s.
Speedboats, cocktails, sunsets and a belting playlist: this is how you make the most of summer in London. Join the guys aboard Thames Lates and prepare for something special, as you motor down the river in a 50-minute tour of central London’s famous sites. There’s award-winning comedian guides and a complimentary cocktail from the ever-popular London Cocktail Club on board!
POPdown is an interactive restaurant pop-up that you don’t wanna miss without good excuse. Back to take London’s foodie scene by storm from 21st July, these guys were voted as the 6th best pop-up in the world just last year. Catch them at a new space overlooking Borough Market, where they are serving a frankly delicious 5-course, Asian-styled tasting menu, with craft beer, wine and bespoke cocktails to boot.
Throwing down the gauntlet for the most unique afternoon tea in London this July is none other than Tonic & Remedy in the heart of Shoreditch. Not only housed at the stunning restaurant, there's unique cocktails alongside a roster of sweet and savoury bites.

Nicole Line hosts textile workshops that are designed to teach a creative skill to both adults and children. Perfect regardless of whether you’re a complete beginner or a total pro, you’ll share ideas and techniques in a relaxed setting. The workshops are held at venue’s throughout London, where you’ll learn how to use the equipment, source the materials and even set up your own studio space at home.
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.
Thirsty Thursday is about to reach a whole different level thanks to the Shoreditch Pub Crawl. Offering 2-4-1 tickets (that’s £6 per person), you’ll go hard with free entry to four of the area’s top nightspots, with free shots and beer pong antics throughout.

Forget the smashed avocado and poached eggs, brunch at Ma’ Plucker’s is all about unlimited prosecco and a chicken feast. Doesn’t matter whether you’re seeing off a hangover or just looking to set yourself up for the day ahead, you’ll tuck into unlimited whole chicken, with 2 bases, 2 sauces and fries, all washed down with that limitless flow of bubbly. It’s between £30 and £35 depending on the day you choose to go, and you’ll need to save room for mini doughnuts for dessert.
