100 people! Youll be fucked at 1am getting in anywhere with 100 people. You'd be best off getting a little group together and sharking off somewhere on your own.

I'm down in London this weekend. Any off-piste ideas away from usual tourist attractions? Food/Markets/Quirky Bars/Events etc. I'm staying with friends East near Victoria Park.

I'd recommend Broadways Market in Hackney. Really good food, some nice pubs. The canal leads to Oval Space if you want to go for a rave (not sure what's on though). http://www.broadwaymarket.co.uk/gallery.php

broadway market/london fields is enjoyable if the weathers nice not far from vic park.

Dalston Rooftop Bar is fun, they have a bbq up there and dj usually on saturdays. may have to queue though.

You're only a stones throw from tayyabs so make sure you give that a go. Don't worry too much about the mains just load up on the grilled meat starters with bread . Lamb chops tandoori chicken & seekh kebabs are great . If you've still got room for a main try the shredded chicken thing (can't remember what it's called) oh & bring your own booze

dont know what tayyabs are doing at the moment because of ramadan. If tayyabs is too rammed pop by needoo around the corner. former manager of tayyabs and the food is very similar

I didn't think Tayyabs was that good when I went and I thought the service was shit as well. I know you dont expect great service when going to a curry house but still.

Tayyabs has gone downhill massively in the past couple of years.

For some upmarket Indian food, check out Roti Chai, the street food is top

Having my 23rd birthday in London this year. Probably gonna be about 40 or so people. Are there any decent bars around central/east that you don't have to pay to book for groups?
