The days may be getting shorter and the weather might be sending shivers down spines, but that doesn’t mean you should stay indoors this November. With a chocolate-themed cocktail club, wintry wonderlands and a cheese-fuelled festival on the cards, DesignMyNight has rounded up the very best things to do across the UK that are more than worth venturing outside for.
Winterland - London
Transporting you to cooler climes without the arctic temperatures, Neverland is bringing you ski resort vibes minus that hefty airfare ticket. Get comfy in a heated hunting lodge or bauble-filled igloo before digging into fondue and mulled wine. There’s even karaoke, beer pong and DJs at the weekend, making this one of the most fun spots in Fulham.
The Chocolate Cocktail Club - Brighton
One for all you sweet-toothed imbibers out there, The Chocolate Cocktail Club is popping up at The Vine Club for an exclusive winter edition this November. For four whole weeks, you can get your hands on chocolatey twists on classic cocktails; from boozy strawberry sundaes to the signature chocolate martini.
Nikki’s - London
Inspired by Quentin Tarantino, Nikki’s is bringing plenty of badass vibes to the heart of Shoreditch. If the wild interior doesn’t catch your eye, the twisted cocktails and daily happy hour should do the trick. Grab a cheeky tiki concoction and get comfortable on the PVC-covered bed as East London gal, Nikki, shows you a good time.
The Hidden Spirit - London
From the masterminds behind Moonshine Saloon and Alcotraz comes a brand new immersive experience, where you’ll be joining pirate captain Jack Cassidy on a perilous mission aboard the Golden Hinde (a moored sixteenth-century ship). It’s a pirate’s life for you, as this epic journey uncovers hidden messages, precious jewels and tasty cocktails.
Flight Club - Manchester
Taking social darts to new heights, Flight Club has finally made its way to Manchester and you’re going to want to check it out. Kitted out like an old-school fairground, this King Street newbie is the perfect place for a little fun, whether you’re in a big group or on a first date. Think sliders, pizzas, cocktails and a few sharp objects.
Vengaboys Live - London
The Vengabus is coming... It’s time to relive that 90s dance phase, as The Vengaboys take to the stage at The Grand. A Clapham institution, you can’t beat a cheesy night here, especially when our favourite Dutch Eurodance group are on the bill with some guilty pleasures.
Cheese Fest - Edinburgh
Whoever said that cheese festivals weren’t a good idea? No one. Bringing you 48 hours dedicated to everyone’s favourite dairy product, Cheese Fest is back and bigger than ever. Expect an un-brie-livable selection of vendors, cooking demonstrations, live bands and, of course, all the cheese you could possibly sink your teeth into.
Skylight - London
When it comes to rooftop parties in London, nowhere does it quite like Skylight. Located at the stunning Tobacco Dock, this sky-high space has been transformed into a cosy wintry retreat where you can feast on oozy raclette and sip on hot toddies from the comfort of your own private winter igloo or hut.
Mean Girls Screening - London
It may not be on a Wednesday, but pink is strongly encouraged as The Exhibit host an evening dedicated to what just might be the best high school movie ever made. Soak up bottomless bubbles and dig into tasty pizza before a boutique screening of Mean Girls. You go Glenn Coco.
Winter Wonderland - London
Attracting millions of visitors each year, Winter Wonderland is known far and wide for having one of the top ice rinks in London. Not only can you experience Zippos circus and Cirque Berserk, but there’s even roller coasters, comedy clubs and the Magical Ice Kingdom. Pair all that with a few brews and bratwurst at The Bavarian Village and you’re onto a winner.
