Still on the dry January wagon? Come, be among your strong-willed people at this, London's new weekly booze-free party. And before you go thinking that 'booze-free party' is a contradiction in terms, hear us out: hip London Bridge bar Nine Lives is putting on a night of killer 90s hip-hop, shuffleboard, pizza by the slice – and, of course, alcohol-free cocktails. Seedlip creations include the NOgroni and the Garden Sour, the G&T Kefir is made with ginger, turmeric and lemon-water kefir, while the Recharge is ginger, lemongrass and sugar-free Red Bull. See? Your mum was right: you actually don't have to drink to have fun.
Tuesdays from 16 Jan
Nine Lives, Basement of 8 Holyrood Street, SE1 2EL
Admit it: all that new year's enthusiasm for getting fit is starting to turn into the usual rest-of-the-year enthusiasm for sitting down. Isn't it? Thought so. Well, fear not: opening this week is the new Blok Shoreditch, aka the world's most motivating fitness studio. Not only are the industrial-style spaces gorgeous, the showers super-posh and the café stocked with on-trend healthy eats, but, most importantly the classes are effective. Damn effective. Cardio killer, Bloksculpt, cardio barre, ballet fit, vinyasa flow… and our favourite, BlokParty. Consider those NY resolutions saved.
