Sway underwent an extensive refurb at the start of 2016, and now it's hands down one of the hottest places to go out and party in Covent Garden.

Another great place to meet single people in London is Floripa; the part Brazilian beach bar, part bloc party club just down from Old Street. There's a carnival atmosphere that's infectious; with street food, caipirinhas and a vibrant decor making it one of the more memorable places for a party in Shoreditch.
