In London this Wednesday- Friday. We're staying in a hotel in E6 1BG because that's the area where my mate wants to look for accommodation for his masters, (is it a shit hole?).

We know what we want to do during the day with regards to shopping/ sight seeing etc, but we're stuck for something to do on the Thursday night. Any recs for bars/clubs to check out?

Thanks in advance

Yeah it's pretty far out/residential in East Ham, you probably won't want to be spend much time there.

What do you want from your night out? If you're Uni age you'll probably want to go out in Dalston? Walk up and down Kingsland Road (the main road) and you'll find something.

Alternatively, pick something from here: http://www.residentadvisor.net/events.aspx?ai=13&v;=day&mn;=7&yr;=2014&dy;=10

Also, download the app Uber for getting a good cheap taxi home, you won't want to fuck about with night buses if you're not used to getting back.
PM me for a code and we can each get £10 free credit (if you've not signed up yet) that'll see you most of the way home for free.

^^ you are staying round the corner from where i live. East ham is a shit hole, there is nothing decent within walking distance. I hardly spend anytime in the area.

this place is good for reasonable £££ and slightly different to burger joints - may need to get there a bit early though as its part of the current 'no booking' trend - not Soho as such, but too shakes of a lambs away really

A five guys has just opened. But if you wanted a bit more upmarket, then Polpo or Vinoteca are both ace.
