The Last Tuesday Society aka Little Shop of Horrors never fails to surprise my guests. Even if one is not interested in the curiosities on display, the cocktails from the upstairs bar with the names of ‘This is not a brothel’ or ‘Witches rout martini’ always do the trick. Izzy Kawecka
It’s an old standby, but I’d go for a kitschy night out (or lively morning!) at the Four Thieves in Clapham. The top floor is full of old-school games under black lights, from glow mini-golf and skee-ball to electric car racing and other retro arcade favourites. During the weekends, grab a table downstairs for some bottomless bingo that features a hearty brunch plate and endless mimosas. The host usually gets everyone up and dancing between bingo rounds!

I would take a newbie to have brunch at the lovely Quince Tree café in the Clifton Gardens Nursery near Warwick Avenue as it is the oldest nursery in London. Additionally, they serve delicious food to satisfy even the most critical of foodies inside a scenic white conservatory set in the grounds of the nursery. Carla Midcap Ramiro
I’d go to Mirth, Marvel And Maud in Walthamstow. It’s incredible-looking inside, offers diverse and interesting events each week, and does a great roast on Sundays. If nothing else, it’s got ‘LOST IN SPACE’ PINBALL! Jak Wakefield
