GOOD NEWS… we made it through January. A disastrous month of being boozeless/meatless/moneyless is behind us and it’s time to let loose once again. From kebab-fuelled festivals to Super Bowl blowouts and real-life dancing on ice, DesignMyNight has rounded up the very best events to make your February pop.

Celebrate Valentine's at Ballie Ballerson - London

From Valentine’s to Galentine’s and everything in between, this Shoreditch spot is throwing the ultimate bash come February 14th. In true ‘Thank u, next’ style, they’ve filled a giant ball pit with hundreds of pink balls and there’s even a hanging swing… you know, for the gram. If that’s not enough, then a retro cocktail and cheeseburger spring roll should do it.
