With a bounty of great parties happening in the capital this Easter bank holiday, you can dance till you drop. Here’s our round-up of the long weekend’s best club nights from Thursday April 13 to Sunday April 16 2017. If you’ve got the stamina, you could even turn Easter into a four-day bender. Just don’t count down a quick resurrection in time for work on Tuesday.
Thursday April 13
The disco nerds at Horse Meat Disco sure know how to put on a party so if you’re setting up for an Easter south of the river, this is where you want to be. The four-man DJ crew have just about every disco track ever committed to vinyl - definitely enough to keep you boogying till sun up.
Bussey Building/CLF Art Cafe. Thu Apr 13.
Possibly the only night of Easter weekend that will willingly hit play on Hanson’s seminal hit Mmmbop. Whack a skirt over your jeans and grab a bottle of 20/20, it’s time to party like it’s quite literally 1999. And 1998. And 1997. And, well, you get the picture.
The Macbeth of Hoxton. Thu Apr 13.
Good Friday, April 14
The Joiners Return!
Jesus isn’t the only one rising again this Easter - so too will legendary LGBTQI pub The Joiners Arms. Well, sort of - transplanted from Hackney Road to Hoxton Square, DJs will be spinning everything from HI-NRG and house to slo-jams till 3am.
Zigfrid von Underbelly of Hoxton. Fri Apr 14.
Saturday April 15
In the heady days of Stranger Things hysteria, you probably found yourself listening to DJ Yoda’s Soundcloud mix featuring clips and a slew of ‘80s hits. He’s bringing the mixtape to life for a second time this Easter and, if the first one was anything to go by, it’s going to be crackin’.
The Prince of Wales. Sat Apr 15
Easter Sunday, April 16
After three solid nights out on the town you’ll need a pretty serious pick-me-up on Easter morning. Enter your saviour: Queen ShayShay who’s throwing a comfy drag brunch with all the oversized Bloody Marys you can handle. Last night’s makeup: mandatory.
Dalston Superstore. Sun Apr 16.
Monday’s another bank holiday so you’ve still got an all-dayer in you, haven’t you? Just as well because Mick’s Garage is playing host to the year’s first Bakery Day & Night - canalside drinks in the sun before morphing into a late night dance party.
Mick's Garage. Sun Apr 16.

This is the original ping pong bar that Bounce opened and it's located, allegedly, on the exact spot that the beautiful, bouncy game was invented. Along with a satisfying selection of pizzas (straight from the wood-burning oven), canapé packages and suave cocktails, Bounce serves up a night of competitive fun in an edgy industrial-chic space. The restaurant is raised on a platform overlooking the ping pong drama unfolding on the 17 tables below, so you don't have to worry about wayward balls when you're not in the throes of a game.
Venue says: “Every Friday from 10pm we host huge games of 'Round the Table' with up to 30 people playing at once, completely free to play - get involved!”
