You know what a beer tastes like and you know what to expect of an exquisitely decorated bar from the Instagram that you discovered it from; so, we know that there is always room for a little more energy. If this sounds like you, then I bring you a list of activity bars to try out that you can only find in a major city that’s always trying something new like London. From Ping pong to board games, there is something for everyone.
A six-piece band with two pianists, a drummer, guitarist, bassist and horn sit on stage at this bar without a set-list. The novelty at The Piano Works is that they only play what the crowd requests. Making this bar easily one of the most fun bars to go to in London. The electric atmosphere here is unmatched and feels like one big, live karaoke night.
Book a table here for dinner, drinks and a net in the middle of it. Oh yeah, it’s a table tennis table. Bookable for large occasions or small double dates, Bounce is an impressively large space that can cater for any event. With interactive tables navigated by your ping pong ball you can enjoy more than just a classic game of ping pong. Sip on a cocktail and enjoy the lively atmosphere.
This rather charming and picturesque indoor crazy golf course brings an extra level to miniature golf. With two beautifully designed golf courses to choose from, a choice of restaurants and someone ready to take your drink order at each hole; Swingers promises to make your time here as comfortable and easy as ever! Notable aspects: This particular mini golf course is kid free.
This particular bar is perfect for a large group. First of all, you aren’t all subjected to just one sport, or just one table. There is more to choose from such as Ping Pong, Beer Pong, Karaoke and Pool. The Bat & Ball has a fun, lively atmosphere where you can either sit down or have some fun upstairs in what they call ‘the playground’. Perfect for people to mingle and kind of feels like a house party with all your friends.
Perfect for a double date, this bar is one hundred and eighty percent ideal for something a little different. Normally set up in a dark pub, the interactive darts boards in this bar light up the room. With the classic activity bar menu of cocktails, beer, pizza, nachos and more this is another fun and easy venue to depend on for a good time.
Located in the basement of The Ham Yard Hotel, this picturesque bowling alley brings retro and modern together. There aren’t many lanes but I think that this is what makes The Croc so quaint, unique and cosy. Carry on your evening drinking and getting involved with the karaoke in the rosy bar. Great for a big group of friends or colleagues again to have some old-fashioned fun in somewhere that
A cute board game café, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for a date. The new Dalston space is especially dreamy. With over 800 games to choose from, and a sweet, romantic interior this spot is super cute to enjoy a sit-down drink, and chat over a board game. Great for avoidable awkward silences and also, you can always find out someone’s true colours over a game of monopoly.
The Queen of Hoxton is well known in the Shoreditch area for its Hip Hop karaoke. Perform your favourites on a stage in front of a club or watch from the side lines. Usually, the people confident enough to perform are actually really talented so you don’t have to get involved to have fun! During the summer, a rooftop cinema pops up every now and again here too, with deckchairs and the high-rise office buildings surrounding you can really appreciate summer in the city!
For a more private and intimate space, Mama Shelter offers 2 karaoke rooms. Soundproof so you don’t have to worry about anyone else hearing your rendition of Mariah Carey if you don’t want to, and is another super cosy space to relax and have some sing song fun in somewhere that feels a little more personal.
For a dependable, fun night out in the city these are loved by locals and perfect to add to your list as a visitor!
