London's rooftops get better every year, and the same can be said for Skylight this bank holiday. A gorgeous rooftop spot with croquet, pop-up bars and pergolas, this is one hell of a way to spend that extra day.

Hip Hop Brunch is back for a bank holiday special. Held at a secret London location, get ready for bottomless cocktails, delicious food, magicians, music and a big old afternoon of dancing to your favourite hip hop tunes.

May Bank Holiday just got even more fun as Supa Dupa bring you two massive events. If you're in south London head over to Prince of Wales for two massive nights on non-stop '90s tunes, or East, Trapeze will be hosting the outrageous party group for a Sunday night of silliness.

This May Bank Holiday head on over to Fulham Beach for their Tulum Party, where you'll be whisked away to Mayan ruins and Caribbean waters from the heart of South London. Expect a stunning Thameside location, delicious refreshments and late night partying aplenty. 

This notorious prison themed pop up is one of London's best immersive cocktail bars. Don your orange jumpsuit and find a good hiding spot for your booze, because if the guard catches you, you may not get to sample some of the coolest concoctions in town.

Cocktails at the ready; Thames Rockets are back this bank holiday... and you're invited to kickstart your summer with a unique speed boat experience, tipples from London Cocktail Club and a soundtrack from Oslo's DJ Mikee Snooze. Could there be a better way to see the city?

The iconic ABQ bar has found a permanent home in Hackney and they want you down to don some hazmat suits and get your molecular mixology on at one of London's best immersive cocktail experiences to brighten your bank holiday.

Head to DUO where the Camden party spot will be blowing up with a full schedule of bank holiday happenings this year. From vegan brunching to an orchestral take on Drake, it's time to make the most of that no-work Monday.
