UK-Wide: Flight Club

When you spy Flight Club's fairground-inspired interiors and alcoholic slushies, you already know they're some of the quirkiest bars in the UK, spanning everywhere from Cheltenham to Cardiff and Leeds. Aside from that, their brunch socials come with unlimited pizza paddles, a bottle of fizz each and a go on in the famous oches.

London: The Bletchley Cryptic Cocktail Experience

@ Chelsea Funhouse on Various dates from Wednesday 29th March 2023

Chelseas Funhouse is a multi-level den of exactly what it says on the tin, but The Bletchley Cryptic Cocktail Experience is one of our all-time favourites. This unique London bar is inspired by Alan Turing and his team of cryptographers, so expect to crack codes before sipping bespoke drinks.

Poole: Blush

Blush is a pretty-in-pink Poole bar where you can find bottomless brunches with drag, 90s and glitter themes. As for the food and drinks? Expect delicious cocktails to wash down the likes of lobster, burgers, oysters and more.

Dublin: Amy Austin

An unorthodox wine bar within an actual car park, Amy Austin is a haven for both you and your furry friends. The dog-friendly Dublin hangout is shaking things up with its selection of on-tap vinos, whilst it's seasonal food menu and zany interiors won't fail to please.
