Draughts - London's first board game café

Play board games at Draughts

Be honest, you were totally that kid who played Monopoly by yourself, right? Well when the weather is being less than awesome (which, let’s be honest, is most of the time), hide away in this old railway arch and pick from over 500 games to wile away the hours. They’ve loaded up with a small food menu as well, so once you pay your £5 session fee, you can stay all night long.

Do anything at Roundhouse

Hosting everything from mega concerts, to the circus, to immersive theatre and then some, Roundhouse is up there as one of the best venues in the world. Sure, they’ve got some of the best lighting and sound equipment in the UK, and there’s not a bad spot in the house, but the room itself is absolutely stunning with its massive domed ceiling.

Soak in the View from Gong at The Shard

London Bridge
Although not technically the very top, Gong has a couple major things above The View: 1) there’s no tickets or cover charge. However... 2) they have awesome booze, which means whatever money you save will go down anyway in liquid form. But we think that’s a much better use of your cash money.
