5 Of – Alternative Nights Out
Pubs, clubs and nightclubs are fine but if you want to be able to talk to your friends then alternative nights out are best.
Here are some of the hottest spots for the coolest of kids.
Flight Club – Bloomsbury – http://flightclubdarts.com/
If you are a fan of the arrows then you are in luck with this clever bar offering the new wave of darts players a space to eat, drink and throw projectiles. Perfect for team building or just to prove to your mates that you are still that same kid that could launch a rubber across the classroom with ease and precision.
Bounce – Holborn – http://www.bouncepingpong.com/
The home of ping-pong and a real innovator within the combined eating/drinking/competing space. Boasting a real 2012 Olympic table this Holborn venue offers the city high-flyers an opportunity to showcase their top spin talent against their colleagues as well as a lively bar with fantastic atmosphere. It does get a bit warm so be warned.
Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes – http://bloomsburybowling.com/home/
Bowling, karaoke and pizza. There is pretty much nothing more that can be said about this winning combination. Ideal for groups and corporate entertainment or for date night this is one place that “strikes” me as somewhere you can “pin” your hopes on. Sorry.
Four Quarters East – Hackney – https://www.designmynight.com/london/bars/hackney/four-quarters-east
Nostalgic arcade games and craft beers offer up a truly unique experience for all you big kids that are still keen to top the Pacman score charts. The Hackney location follows on the success of the Peckham sister.
Hip Hop Karaoke – http://www.hiphopkaraoke.co.uk/
Exactly what it says on the tin. Don’t try and tell me that you haven’t lip synched to Juicy wearing your granddads jumper and your mum’s costume jewellery and a pair of sunglasses pretending to be Biggie? Oh right, just me then. If any of you fancy the next best thing then get involved with Hip Hop Karaoke where you can let your inner rapper free.
