Fill your bank holiday with al-fresco cocktails, all-night parties, boutique festivals… and, er, swinging. Golf clubs, that isMore
FUN: Swingers – The Crazy Golf Club
Crazy golf. As anyone who spent their childhood holidays desperately trying to putt a neon ball through a windmill knows, it is surely one of our nation's finest contributions to the sporting world. Only now it's hipper, wackier and – yes! – even involves booze, at this new permanent venue smack in the centre of London. With two nine-hole courses featuring sand traps, loops, tunnels and hills, you’ll need Tiger Woods-style skills to pull off a hole-in-one. And should that fail, you can always console yourself with street food from the likes of Pizza Pilgrim and Patty & Bun, and cocktails from one of the FIVE bars. Who cares about hitting par when you have shedloads of Prosecco? Swingers, from 27 May; £15 8 Brown’s Buildings, London EC3A 8AL
EVENT: SS Atlantica Party Hello, sailors! It’s all aboard The SS Atlantica, which is setting sail this Saturday from that famous port of, um, London. But this pop-up party isn’t letting a little thing like being landlocked get in the way of its champagne-fuelled voyage, oh no. Taking Thames cruiser The Silver Sturgeon and transforming it into a 1930s art-deco ocean liner, this night promises vintage live bands, floorshows, cabaret acts and dancing as you glide down the river the glamorous way. Expect lavish costumes, even-more-lavish cocktails – and maybe even the chance to find your own Leo on deck. SS Atlantica, 28 May; £35 SS Atlantica, Savoy Pier, Victoria Embankment, WC2N 6ND
FOOD: La Terraza at Number 90
What if we told you it’s possible to be in two places at once? And moreover, what if we told you those two places were London’s coolest canal-side locale, and MEXICO? …Well, we’d be lying, obviously. It’s physically impossible. But it can be done in a far more important, quesadilla-involving way, thanks to this new Mexican-food pop-up at Hackney Wick’s Number 90. Filling the spacious waterside terrace with Latino street eats (think tacos, nachos and superfood salads), DJs and – wait for it – BOTTOMLESS MARGHERITAS, this is the nearest to Cancun you can get with Oyster Card. Ole, indeed.
From 26 May Number 90 Bar Terrace, 90 Main Yard, Wallis Road, E9 5LN
