A good time with friends has never been more appreciated this summer. We all want to make the most of the long warm nights, and luckily, these London venues are on-hand with the best food, drink, and entertainment the city has to offer - with a complimentary cocktail on the house! 

Each of the following incredible venues is offering a free cocktail to make sure your festivities get off to the best possible start.

These truly are four of the best venues London has to offer, and there really is something for everyone…

Vinegar Yard 

A great day out in London doesn’t always have to begin when the sun sets, and if you’re looking for a fantastic lunch in London, Vinegar Yard is a top-tier choice. With stunning city views of The Shard, it’s ideally located next to London Bridge station.

Vinegar Yard is jammed packed with food stalls, so there’s no need to worry about any taste buds going unfulfilled! Some of the eateries include the Bad Boy Pizza Society, Nik’s Kitchen for Asian-inspired street food, and Sugo UK, which specialises in Italian street food. Something for every pallet!

But Vinegar Yard won’t just leave you with a happy belly, it will also quench your thirst as you sit outside and enjoy the London sunshine. Why not wash your lunch down with a Red Bull Tropical before going to another food stall for seconds?

The Prince of Wales Brixton 

With two rooftop terraces that are open all year round, the Prince of Wales Brixton is the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine the day, or party the night away beneath a twinkling sky.

You won’t go hungry at the Prince of Wales either, and its menu features wood-fired pizza, and a variety of burgers and sides to make sure that your stomach is well-lined for more delicious cocktails. 

MEATLiquor

Whether it’s the bacon cheeseburger that takes your fancy or the black bean chili dog, every item on the menu is perfectly accompanied with a delicious Watermelon Cooler.

The impressive American-style menu also boasts plenty of plant-based and vegetarian options to cater to every dietary requirement. 

Finish off your meal with a No-Nonsense shake, one of their many desserts, or if you’re still peckish, get stuck into other mouthwatering delights like deep-fried mac and cheese bites or salt and pepper fries.

Another must-try on the MEATLiquor menu is the Game Over cocktail - a delicious concoction of spirits that’s not for the faint of heart.

But there’s even more to this incredible hotspot than just amazing food and drinks - as it’s also a venue that prides itself on good music, and you can join in on the fun by picking the tunes on their Secret DJ app. 

There are multiple MEATLiquor locations across the city of London - from Bloomsbury to Shoreditch - so no matter where the day takes you, this is a venue you’ll have no trouble finding. 

The Book Club 

Shoreditch is London’s cool hotspot, and within its heart, you’ll find the ultimate party venue that doubles as the perfect date night location: The Book Club. Enter into its light and airy atmosphere for a night you won’t forget in a hurry…

You can start your evening with one of a variety of pizzas served at the venue, along with a Tropical Rumbull served on the house!

Once you’re fed and watered, grab another drink and head downstairs to hear some of London’s best DJs do their thing. The Get Down events are absolutely free and a must for any London dwellers. 

The Book Club hosts some of London’s greatest local DJ talent, making for one of the best R&B & HipHop nights in London.
