Gosh, we’ve had our fair share of hide-behind-the-sofa moments on this year’s Love Island haven’t we? From Anton giving his digits to the infamous shopkeeper, to Tom speaking far too truthfully in front of Maura before heading to the hideaway, this long hot summer has been quite the emotional rollercoaster. And yet the show is still very much our type on paper, which is why we’re itching to see what the final has in store!
Taking place on Monday, 29th of July – eek, a school night – the final will see you indulging in boozy brunches, entering a makeshift villa, grabbing goodie bags, and witnessing one of the couples take home a whopping 50 grand – well jel!
Here are the best places to catch the Love Island 2019 final…
Couple up with bottomless prosecco and entertainment a’plenty, as Skylight Rooftop celebrates the final of Love Island with a brunch. Partnering with Impossible Things Entertainment, expect a host of games inspired by the hit TV show – hopefully they’ve left the pies at home – as well as the best anthems from the series. If that’s not enough, how does a drag version of Caroline Flack sound? Yep, it’s not something we ever thought we’d see either but then neither is the image of Anton having his bum shaved by his mum! Thanks Love Island…
The event, on the 4th of August, will also feature all sorts of activities; lip-syncing, audio quizzes and singalongs being just a few. This brunch madness comes from the brains behind popular experiences Spice up your brunch and It’s Britney, Brunch! So, we’re expecting great things…
Don’t be muggy and come along on Sunday the 4th of August
Where: Rooftop at Tobacco Dock, 120, Pennington Street, E1W 2SF
GLAMOUR will be throwing the party of all Love Island parties to celebrate the final, including pamper sessions, delicious cocktails and canapés and a surprise appearance from a past islander – now, we bet you don’t get all that at home do you? And, well, if you do then you must be some sort of Oligarch. The Soho-based event will also provide the opportunity for you to take home a goodie bag and have unrivalled fun. #ItIsWhatItIs!
29th of July, 6.30-11pm

Throughout this long, hot summer, Boxpark in Wembley has been gathering up the troops, and famous Love Island faces, for a series of Love Island screenings. The fun has included Arabella Chi and Joseph Garratt watching the action unfold on the big screen, alongside curated cocktails, all housed in a makeshift villa – no kidding!
Partnering with ITV, Boxpark has live-streamed the series, with guests making the most of street food vendors, drinks and celebrity company, so hopes are high for the final.
It’s time to get bevvy babes!

Although London feels a bit like Mallorca at the minute, we can’t deny ourselves from soaking up the last of the Love Island villa during the finale.

Go hard this Love Island final and lay on the factor 50 like there’s no tomorrow. Where? The Perky Nel! Why? Because the Clapham-based bolthole is throwing a bash that includes bottomless prosecco, bellinis or Aperol Spritz in front of the big screen – awesome!

I GOT A TEXT! And it’s from Camden Market’s North Yard telling you to head down to embrace the Mallorcan climes with a free Love Island final screening, alfresco style. So grab a table or deck chair on the ‘green’ and enjoy a pre-show happy hour with 2 for 1 ‘it spritz what it is’ cocktails. They’ll also be running a one night only ‘restaurant to screen’ delivery service. Place your order via the Camden Easts app and enjoy the ride!
Where: North Yard, Camden Market, NW1 8AH
Finally, for those looking for something a little different…
It might be called The Book Club, but we can assure you that no books will be read during the Love Island final… unless it’s the book on how to not be muggy, which Michael should scan over. This Shoreditch must-visit threw a finale party to celebrate/commiserate the end of the show last year. Oh and it featured head and body workshops, eh? Which, apparently, are workshops that allow you to draw your favourite characters from the series. Interesting!
This year, they’re changing things up. And, whilst there isn’t a party on the cards per say, there is a speed dating event that can see you work on your own love life instead of watching others! Yep, we know, it’s not as fun as your 9pm appointment with the sofa but it’s better than Bumble, right?
The party takes places on the 29th of July
Where: 100 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH
