Monday Nights in London
You've made it through the first, and worst, day of the working week - which, if you ask us, is cause for celebration. Perhaps a lowkey pub quiz or comedy show with some mates? Or maybe a happy hour cocktail followed by a dance at a top party spot? Whatever you're in the mood for, this city's bars, clubs and restaurants are on hand with great events and fun ideas to spice up your Monday night in London.
Take the edge off Mondays at Soho's very own slice of Scandinavia, The Nordic Bar. This watering hole not only serves up native classics - Swedish meatballs, breaded haddocks and hefty platters - but also a great party vibe. Check out some of their retro arcade tables and beer pong whilst sipping on 2-4-1 cocktails and cheap pints.
Grab you workmates and head to one of Flight Club's various locations around London for an evening of light-hearted competition and a few tasty drinks. Expect arcade-themed decor, paddles of pizza and social darts.
One of the city's best basement spots for drinking and dancing, Bar Rumba brings the party every week with their Monday Mash-Up club nights. DJs will keep you on your feet till 3am with a range of reggaeton tunes, dancehall classics, chart bangers and RnB.
Zoo Bar is known for hosting some of the liveliest parties and best student nights around. Get your week off to a cracking start with a happy hour drink or two at the West End bar before moving on to the dancefloor and shaking your tail feathers to non-stop anthems till the early hours.
This definitely beats a Monday night at the gym... Lightbox London is upgrading your sweat sessions with live DJs pumping the jams and stunning light shows providing a flashy backdrop as you stretch, box and tone at these unique exercise classes.
Trade in your briefcase for a whisk with The Big London Bake, a GBBO-inspired contest. Over 90 minutes you'll battle it out against fellow chefs as you mix, fold and decorate a showstopper that'll hopefully wow the judges and earn you glory.
Fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping, bloody good fun... this live-action escape room will see you and your mates racing against time to find a hidden key, whilst avoiding the clutches of a chained-up zombie that's slowly loosening the shackles...
Merchant House know a thing or two about their spirits - specifically gin, rum and whisky. Pick your poison and join them for a classy Monday masterclass where you'll learn the history behind the tipple before being taught how to shake up a number of cocktails.
The Top Secret Comedy Club is renowned for welcoming in some of the biggest names in the industry, as well as a roster of talented up-and-comers. Don't believe us? See for yourself over one of their weekly new material nights, where you'll play guinea pig to fresh jokes.
Thanks to The Piano Works, there's only one place you'll want to be after work on a Monday. Join them for a memorable night of live music from their in-house band, performing a variety of songs requested by the crowd - we're talking TayTay, Oasis, Rage Against The Machine and more.
