Life Drawing in a bar

Ever thought of heading to the pub for a spot of… life drawing?

Meet someone special at London's top singles bars
The Book Club in Shoreditch runs the monthly singles event, ‘Last Night a Speed Date Saved My Life’. Catchy name and what’s more, its hip location means you’re likely to find a relaxed affair rather than anything too serious. Not a fan of date nights, then head to the Book Club at the weekend where the crowd still holds its fair share of singles.

In these days of constantly shifting trends, where pop-ups can steal your customers away before you can say ‘Aperol Spritz’, The Book Club does a remarkable job in staying down with the in-crowd. How? By offering a random collection of excellent nights out in a club space that seems to get better with age.

Located in Shoreditch, The Book Club has been a bastion of big nights out since well before the area exploded. A basement club provides the dancing room, done up in a semi-industrial style with a small bar and a small collection of seating. The ground floor bar above is the pre-party to the basement’s after party with a solid menu of sharing platters that include BBQ, vegetarian, Mexican and straight up meat, plus a busy events schedule.

Along with a large bar, a well–used ping-pong table and plenty of seating, the upstairs space plays host to a huge range of alternative nights. These nights are arguably what have kept The Book Club so fresh over the years, with the likes of life drawing, ping-pong tournaments, board game creation (yes, really) and speed dating. Not to mention the fact that this is one of the best places in Shoreditch for a dance. Hip-hop, soul, funk, bass and R’n’B are the usual sounds that get people moving and the basement’s ceiling sweating.

There’s no such thing as a guaranteed great night out but with the sheer array of action going on The Book Club comes close.
