Anyone who has been to Ibiza will know why we're recommending that you kick off the bank holiday at ANTS this Thursday. (Anyone who hasn't, go book some tickets to Ibiza, then rejoin us.) You see, ANTS is the coolest residency at the island's coolest open-air club, Ushuaia, famous for its hip brand of house beats. And now the night is returning to London for its biggest international event yet, bringing White Isle vibes and the likes of Groove Armada, Eats Everything and Waze & Odyssey with it. Don't miss – after all, it's not often you can compare Brixton with Playa d'en Bossa, is it?

It's Easter Sunday. You've got a sore head. And there's nowhere better to perform your own miracle resurrection than at Cocktail Trading Co's monthly brunch club. It's easier than it sounds. Step one: indulge in CTC's own, somewhat more gourmet take on a breakfast McMuffin. Step two: accessorise with hash browns and pastries. Step three: be soothed by the sounds of a live swing trio. And by now you'll be ready for the final step: the Morning Glory cocktail. And ta da! You're back from the dead. Now, where's the next party…
16 Apr; £14 for a MacMuffin and Morning Glory cocktail
