Players Bingo is the future for a fun night out with friends.  At Players you’ll be able to sip on cocktails, eat street food and listen to a live band, all whilst wishing and hoping to be able to scream BINGO to win either money or a fun prize.

Hen Party and Weekend Ideas UK in 2019*

Seriously, there is no need for every hen party to be involved in tacky polyester sashes. Or perhaps make it look like it is a stale, cheesy nightclub, which does not really make the entire concept unique or interesting. After all, who wants to settle in the old-fashioned hen do? It is time you start thinking outside the box and introduce a party that everyone would want to be part of.

Take for example London, which is considered home to a slew of hen party ideas be it new or old. It is almost expected from every person there to go for chic bars, silent disco, or boozy brunches, not to mention the titular fitness challenges that everyone is celebrating.

But hey, the one above are just some of the many favourite hen do ideas out there. And yes, you have come to the right place. Here they are!

Pizza to die for – Lost Boys Pizza

Get your fangs into a delicious dark pizza at Lost Boys Pizza as they are to die for. 

Why are they black you might ask? well that is because their pizzas are made via infusing charcoal into the dough giving it a signature black colour.

I had the pleasure of attending Lost Boys Pizza launch party in Camden where I was lucky enough to bite into them, suck on signature cocktails and absinthe served from by Croque Monsieur which is located within their crypt.

Yo Ho! Drink up me ‘earties – Pirates of Hidden Spirit

Yo Ho! and a bottle of rum. Me and some others of Love Pop Ups London community set sail and boarded Pirates of Hidden Spirit an immersive pirate cocktail bar on a complimentary basis in return for a Pirates log.

Pirates of Hidden Spirit by Inventive Productions

Before I give you the low down of our captains log here is the undercover story of what Pirates of Hidden Spirit is about.

The Pirates of Hidden Spirit is a new immersive cocktail experience which will transport guests, or should I say pirates, into an exciting world of mischief and theft as they steal the hidden treasure from the grasps of the U.S Government all whilst enjoying delicious cocktails on board.

For three days each week, Sir Francis Drake’s The Golden Hinde will transform into The Hidden Spirit.

“Legend has it, decades ago, over $2 million in riches were dumped in an unknown location and hidden at sea!

Following the discovery of a cipher stating “The Secret Lies With Elizabeth”, the U.S Government commissioned The Hidden Spirit, which has undergone an epic journey to London to recover the hidden treasure.

The commanding Governor has hired Captain Jack Cassidy to find a new crew to safely bring home the riches, but with over $2million on board, Cassidy has his own ideas and needs recruits prepared to break the law and turn to a life of piracy!

Step aboard The Hidden Spirit this winter and join the undercover crew!

Take your share of the world’s finest collection of precious metals & jewels, liquors & liqueurs and enjoy some delicious cocktails on board to make the journey and time at sea all that bit richer.

Set on board a real ship docked in London, those willing to join Captain Jack Cassidy’s undercover crew will be taken on an epic journey of mischief as they steal the hidden treasure in this unique immersive cocktail experience.”
