We’ve officially made it to the first month of the summer season and things are about to really hot up. Scrap your tinnies in the park for the ultimate summertime experiences, from rooftop drinking to carnival-style clubbing; there are some serious antics going down across the country this month, and we got the DesignMyNight gang to round up their pick of the lot.
Skylight - London
This gorgeous rooftop in Tobacco Dock is totally free (yes, free) to enter - meaning you can get a good look at those views without breaking the bank. Looking to lock down your own space? Grab a 10-person table for just a tenner so you’ve got somewhere to perch your pint while you get involved in a few rounds of croquet or pétanque.
London City Beach - London
They’ve got food stalls, craft beer, cocktail shacks and beach games and with entry for just a fiver, there is absolutely no excuse not to check out London City Beach this summer. With a whole range of themed nights to boot, you could find yourself getting down to Balearic beats, Cuban rhythms or tropical jams until late into the night.
Festibowls - London
It’s time to get out of your house and hit the green as Finsbury Square’s Festibowl returns to the city with more high-stakes bowls action. Book a slot for you and seven of the best bowlers you know and head for The City, where, on top of some top-notch bowling action, they’ll have tasty food stalls and festival vibes.
Mean Girls, The Movie and More - London
Get in losers we’re going to the movies as the ultimate Mean Girls experience touches down in Marylebone. One to splash a bit of that cash on, you’ll get to relive every iconic moment from the movie alongside themed food and drinks, fully immersive decor and even a Spring Fling. If that’s not fetch, we don’t know what is.
The Luna Cinema - London
Taking over some of London’s best-loved outdoor spaces, The Luna Cinema will be screening everything from Monty Python to A Star Is Born in a diverse selection of locations, including Ally Pally, Crystal Palace Park, Kensington Palace and Hampton Court. With tickets from just £15.50, it’s a go-to for summer evenings.
Midnight Apothecary - London
Get campfire cocktails into your life at this unique Rotherhithe pop-up. Grab £5 tickets and make for the Brunel Museum where you can set yourself up by the fire with 2-4-1 botanical cocktails and toasting marshmallows for a quirky take on drinks with friends, or the ultimate date night experience.
Carnival Magnifico - Birmingham
Taking place under the arches of Digbeth Arena, Carnival is throwing a party the likes of which you won’t have seen before. A feast for all the senses, this unique festival-style club night brings you an explosion of colour, confetti and amazing music from the likes of Shy FX, General Levy, Jaguar Skills and Toddla T.
BBQ Fest - Birmingham
One for the carnivores, this unique food festival is taking over The Bond with some serious eats. From Digbeth favourites Buddha Belly bringing Thai-style BBQ to greek souvlaki and Brazilian grills, this tasty all-dayer has got you covered for cheap eats, craft beers and even craftier cocktails.
Reggaeton Party - Manchester
