hi there,

next weekend (22-25 sept.) we're going to London. we (4 girls in their late 20's) are quit a wild bunch...our idea of going out has been lately just getting drunk, dance, meet people...

does anyone of you know a good place to party?? it has to be a laid-back, no dress-code requiring place! and if this place would be on the cheaper side...even better!!

any help will be highly appreciated!

cheers *hicks*

hmmmm . . . four girls in their late twenties . . . London isn't for you. No, you'll want to come up to Glasgow, much better.

Central London - soho area is good for a night out.
There is also Camden, Kingston or Wimbldon.
just depends on where you are staying, most areas have a good pub scene. If you want down the river front or local scene.

These places are not problably to break the night, but I used to like them when I lived there:

Ain't nothing but blues Bar (soho area)

and

The Adelaide
Great food, great atmosphere, and great music (and many cool guys around)

Have fun and enjoy that crazy week-end!

They're on to me . . .

Seriously though, London is amazing for a night out. Soho is a bit mad but good fun.

Have a good trip.

Thanks a lot for your input...I will discuss this tomorrow with my friends...we don't have accommodation yet...but I'm sure we will find some s***-hole to stay in.

A friend recommended to to a pub-tour "à la fabienne". You leave the hotel and head to the first pub, have a drink, then go out and on the first corner, someone has to pick left, right or straight. Then you turn left, right or straight and head to the first pub you pass. and this game goes on like this...until everyone is drunk...

cheers,
kat

ps: mikeyBoab, next time mate!

If your are up for a pub crawl (sounds like you are) there is always the circle line tour.
Buy a travel card, then get on the circle line, get off at ther next stop and have a drink at the nearest bar. After the drink, head back onto the circle line to the next stop...
27 stations, 27 pubs, 28 drinks in a 12 hour sprint.
This circle line tour should keep you amused, and it's a traditional thing to do too

We are not really up to a pub crawl, but strangly it always happens when we go out together (no, actually last time, we ended in the hospital). Is there a scientific reason for this behaviour??

Yes their is - enjoyment of beverages in copious quantities
