Established by Heavenly Records at the end of the '90s, this funky bar and nightlife hub offers central London fun six days a week. After drinks or some square pies and mash upstairs, The Social's in-the-know visitors repair downstairs to a basement club space that hosts some of the most-established parties in the city – carnival-party The Heatwave on Wednesday, Hip Hop Karaoke on Thursday, and now a revival of their seminal Heavenly Social club night on Fridays.

Loving some of the line-ups now booked to play here. Emily Capell and Alex Francis on one bill. Awesome . Never heard of them ? Well if you give this venue a try you just might.
I've only ever come to The Social for their legendary Thursday night hip-hop karaoke and always felt the venue really suited that vibe - eclectic, boisterous and a little rough around the edges. They pack people in too, and that gets uncomfortable after a while, but I noticed they've sorted out the air-con so at least you won't hyperventilate.
