Central or east ideally.

Now I do sound like a dickhead, but too pretentious and full of 'look at me' kids in there.

Somewhere which has interesting events / speakers and restricts the use of mobiles would be a bonus.

I use this with work https://www.eightclub.co.uk/ for what you ask for it fits the bill but it's more city based. Soho house isn't actually that bad, my wife's a member and yeah it's full of cunts but it's not as bad as you probably think.

Cheers MoB, will check out. Is you wife in the media world? Seems like a no-brainer if I worked in that area, everyone seemed to know everyone when I was last there.

Galvin Windows is pretty amazing, although has no outside - views over West lLondon and the whole Hyde Park. Else Sushisamba, Aviary or Oxo Tower for views of the Thames.

Thanks mate. Not too bothered on it being outdoors, will probably be shite weather anyway. Is Galvin Windows somewhere that we can just turn up to - no booking etc? We wont be eating, just drinks.

Was with OVO then bulb over the last couple of years but moved to octopus energy this week

Highest rated firm for service in 2019 according to which website and cheaper than I was paying and it’s fixed for a year
If you move we both get £50 with this link

I have no affiliation to them just did a tonne of research and they come out top no all fronts

Best way to deal with blackheads? Always had them, fed up now, especially on nose. Tried all sorts of exfoliators etc

Be interested in this as well, have an oily nose and only get small black heads there.
Have had facials (no homo) and all sorts, still no good.

Didn't know sebaceous filaments even existed, thanks. Looks more like that with the ocassional blackhead thrown in for good measure.

Any ideas for a birthday party for a group of 10 people or so in central London. Something activity based + drinks? Done the standard mini golf, flight club, bounce, etc. Ideally something during the day/afternoon on a Saturday. Got enough time to plan ahead / get something booked.

Yeah or the shuffleboard place just by Shoreditch high street is great. Then to Mikkeller bar round the corner.

Or the footgolf in lea valley ( as mentioned above) then to beaver town after for some crisp neck oils !

Thanks guys. Will be a mix of guys and gals, so as much as I'd love to do footgolf, won't go down well. Rafting is a shout.

@Heath, thanks mate, will PM you if that's okay?
