Show local love to the West Side (of London) at our favorite Kilburn late-night cocktail bar, while DJ Norman Jay - MBE - spins the decks, supported by DJ Urban Soldier. Drink and dance the night away with 1920s cocktails, in a Williamsburg- warehouse-inspired interior.

Underground Supper Club, Walthamstow
If youre looking to avoid punter and tourist hordes, go underground : as in--a Tube station.
Dont worry, you wont have to relive the Blitz---this supper club takes place in a carriage off the tracks at the Walthamstow Pumphouse Transport Museum. An off-peak single, from starter to dessert costs £35 for the adventurous.

Any self-respecting Shoreditch hipster has heard of Streetfeast by now. Moved recently from the Old Truman Brewery to a primo spot on Kingsland Road, its the latest hot spot to savour the likes of The Ribman, Kimchi Kult, and Big Apple Hot Dogs with your friends, and look good doing it. If you're not already sold by the mouth-watering choices, theres also an indoor gin bar and bookable tables via the website in order to party further into the night.
Every Friday including May 24
317-319 Kingsland Road, London, E8 4DL
Tief @ Corsica Studios
Just in case you didnt know, tief means deep in German---so prep yourself to get down, and dirty. Probably as close to reliving the 80s rave scene without getting too illegal, you really cant go wrong with this party crowd. Lose yourself in Corsica Studios notoriously sweaty house-techno den of iniquity, as guests and resident DJs make you shake your booty to some seriously intense bass. Glowsticks optional.
