Put your mates before dates, at Bounce’s sixth anti-valentine’s day party (although it is in association with Bumble…). There’ll be unlimited ping pong and wonderball, love police patrolling the area and you can take your anger out on the latest match to ghost you, by smashing apart giant love piñatas.
The Alfred Tennyson
This year it’s The Year of the Woman, so all the more reason to celebrate Galentine’s Day and our sisters rather than any misters. As part of their craft series, The Alfred Tennyson is hosting a night with Jar & Fern the terrarium specialists where you’ll learn to make your own terrarium (which let’s be honest is likely to outlast any fleeting romance) whilst drinking cocktails and eating the likes of salt cod croquettes and manouri and courgette fritters.
Granary Square Brasserie
Three isn’t a crowd, three is most definitely a party no, we’re not talking about ménage à trois, we’re talking about the fact that if you book a table of three or more on Valentine’s Day at Granary Square Brasserie you’ll get a free glass of Veuve Clicquot rosé. Teaming up with Bumble BFF, Granary Square Brasserie is celebrating all relationships, your work wives, your siblings, your training partner. There’ll be a photo booth, Clicquot Piñata (which has a magnum of Veuve Clicquot rosé in it!) and plenty of fun.
The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell
Aunt Wilhelmina, the owner of Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell never believed in monogamy, in fact her motto was ‘if two’s company, then three’s a party’ and to celebrate they’ll be offering a free Fig Leaf Collins from their Three is the Magic Number menu to parties of threes. After all, a room full of couples staring at each other is a complete mood killer.
Drake & Morgan
Champagne and chips, now there’s a true match – they’d definitely swipe right for each other, which is why if you buy two glasses of Champagne at any of the Drake & Morgan bars, one for you and a friend/housemate/colleague (not date, this is an anti-valentine’s day feature remember) then you’ll get a free portion of fries. Go, for the whole bottle and you’ll get a trio of fries, including the Roman fries topped with parmesan, truffle and rosemary. Fries, always come before guys.
Single and ready to mingle? Think Valentine’s Day is overrated? Then this Saturday head to STK London’s Love Sucks brunch party. You can eat your feelings with bottomless pancakes, waffles and fried chicken and loaded nachos and wash it all down with drink packages like the Mistress, Gold Digger and Love Sucks. They’ll also be entertainment from Miss Polly Rae and sets from live DJ’s. Just don’t bring your date.
