London nights...

Like most Londoners, we are always keen to find new, inspiring and slightly 'different' places to spend some memorable hours.We have recently come across a fantastic looking venue which we will definitely pay a visit very soon. We are actually slightly embarrassed to admit that this is the first time we have heard of it, given how it is the world's oldest surviving Grand Music Hall. The venue we are talking about is Wilton's Music Hall near London's Tower Hill. Both, the Mahogany Bar and the actual Music Hall look stunning and promise to be quite an enjoyable adventure!

Another night out we are excited about is the club Shu
gaPush, a night of hot jazz, swing and blues from the 1920s to the 1940s which is held on the fourth Saturday of each month at the most wonderful cocktail bar Positively 4th Street. The place alone is well worth a visit probably being London's most beautiful Art Deco style bar. We love going there after work just to watch the mesmerizing ceiling fans while sipping a well crafted cocktail.

ShugaPush is the club night in London that first played only original 78s and this mont
h's event will see its 4th birthday, how very apt! So get there on the 26th of March to listen and dance to the lovingly selected records played by resident DJs Swing Maniac, Kid Krupa and Tim's Jumpin' Jive.

We at Alfies love a night at a good speakeasy with the ex
citing feeling of doing something a little bit forbidden. There are more and more of these establishments popping up in London and the top one on our list is the Candlelight Club which is held in a secret London venue. The place is completely lit by candles, and for each event they offer a different, one-off cocktail menu. Events sell out quickly so get in there soon!

To get the perfect look or to even create a dingy prohibition night at
mosphere in your living room, why not pop down to Alfies for a shopping spree? Please find below some ideas we collected for you:
