It’s my 40th in July and the missus and I want to do something exciting in town for a day/night. We’ve done Punchdrunk already and floatation tanks and galleries, but I was wondering if there’s any hidden, eccentric activities we haven’t considered.
We like music, theatre, film and art but want something a bit off the beaten path. No West End shows or standard gigs.
I want to hit up Third Man and Denmark St. I was thinking maybe a cool speakeasy type place for a drink - any hidden gems?
Recommendations welcome! And thank you!
Potentially useful thread here:
Got a team building weekend in London coming up, any good experiences and the like atm? Escape room has been suggested but I fucking hate them so I’d like to come up with something more exciting so I don’t have to do that.
Also while we’re here, is Patty&Bun still good please.
Time Out’s guide to speakeasys:
If you’re going to Denmark street and third man anyway, Murder Inc is between the two and is better than nearly any other cocktail bar in the city (in my opinion as a functioning alcoholic).
Swift is also nearby but is less speakeasy vibe
As another option people are largely unaware of but which absolutely kills, Below underneath Hide restaurant is a charm
As a serious answer if you’re into craft beers and the like, there’s the Bermondsey beer mile which is pretty fun (other beer miles are available)
I can’t believe they took the marble arch mound from us. Any time we are in the vicinity of marble arch me and my girlfriend talk about the mound for 20 minutes
The tour I often recommend to visitors who claim to have ‘done everything in London’ is this lesser known historic venue:
Tour duration: 60 mins. Join us for a professional guide led tour to see the highlights of the Charterhouse, taking in the evocative remnants of the medieval monastery and the courtyards of the Tudor mansion. Discover Thomas Sutton’s charity and life...
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
in the same vein of ‘people forget/don’t know it’s there’,
omg it’s Waterloo weekend :o
So you’re not ruling out the ABBA Voyage? You should go to that, it’s great.
Leave the country. That’s what I did on my 40th. It was great, didn’t even feel like my birthday.
