Things to do in London this weekend: MAKE FRIENDS
Looking for cool things to do in London? Here’s just that: an Irish-tinged party at London’s long-running 1920s speakeasy, with live jazz, cabaret and cocktails in a secret venue filled with candles. Time Out have called it ‘truly a scene to behold’ – and we can’t help but agree. You’ll receive an email two days before with the secret location – and you’re highly encouraged to go full Charleston on the fancy dress.
Or you could make a new pal or two at a socialising event ensconced within the illustrious surroundings of London’s only rooftop private members club. Situated 100 feet above Kensington High Street, this is one London event you won’t want to miss – you’ll drink cocktails and make chit-chat in the company of three themed gardens and an army of curious flamingos. Ooh er.
If bonding over dinner’s more your thing, you might want to consider an immersive werewolf veggie supper club – yep, you heard that right – which breathes new life into the entire concept of ‘fun things to do in London’. You’ll get to feast on a delicious meal while figuring out which of your dining companions is the guilty werewolf (all hosted skilfully by an experienced actor and improviser and accompanied by sound effects and special effects, naturally).
