Celebrating your birthday in London? This incredible city offers a range of ways to enjoy your birthday, from dancing and drinking, to games and adventure. Whether you’re just another year older or celebrating a big milestone like your 18th, 21st or 30th, we’ve got a whole ton of ideas for how to spend your birthday in London.
1. A West End Show
A West End show is a truly 'London' way to spend any birthday. Catch world-famous productions in the heart of the UK's leading theatre district, and enjoy the drama, spectacle and flamboyance that comes with it.
Afterwards, you can enjoy a cheeky drink or two one of the West End's many indulgent bars, such as The Warwick or Mabel's.
2. Cocktail Masterclass
Have you ever wanted to learn how to muddle, mix and roll? Shake things up with a cocktail masterclass, guaranteed to get your birthday off to an awesome start. An increasingly popular activity across London bars, you'll have fun trying your hand at your favourite drinks whilst also getting merry and munching on delicious nibbles. What's not to love?
3. VIP Experience
Keep things simple by booking a booth or area at one of your favourite bars, where you can simply enjoy a great night with your mates. Many of our Late Night London venues
offer private booths and spaces, along with drinks packages and the full VIP experience, so you and your friends can feel like royalty.
4. Birthday Banquet
What better way to start your birthday night out in London than with a sit down meal? Many of our bars and restaurants serve food throughout the day and into the night, so whether you want to start early or dine later on, you’re sure to find the perfect Late Night London venue to enjoy delicious food and drinks with friends. We also have the option for private dining if you’re feeling particularly decadent.
5. Murder Mystery
If you fancy doing something a bit different on your birthday, Murder Mile Walks in Soho is a unique murder-mystery walk that goes all out to keep the pace going. Starting out at Tottenham Court Road, it covers over 18 murders in two hours, giving you more bang for your buck. Afterwards, you'll be able to pop into one of the many quirky Soho bars to whet your whistle and continue the birthday celebrations into the night - we think Bar Soho will deliver.
6. Outdoor Cinema
Seasons and weather permitting, outdoor cinemas are a fantastic place to spend a birthday, with unusual locations, comfy seating and waiters at your beck and call. Try out the Rooftop Cinema in Shoreditch, Backyard in Camden or the Luna Cinema (various locations), and get ready to enjoy a night of Hollywood magic.
7. Undercover London
Ever fancied yourself as a spy? Brush up on your best stealth skills and get ready to enter the world of spies before the internet with Undercover London. Available to play as a pair or in a group, you'll be given a series of secret missions during which you must evade secret surveillance. If you've ever wanted to see if you could make it as a covert operative, now's your chance to find out.
8. Petanque with Friends
If you feel you're getting too mature for all that senseless partying, why not enjoy a quiet game of petanque on the lawns of Hay's Galleria? A French take on the classic game of boules, it's a fun way to kick back after work with friends as you relax on the sheltered terrace overlooking the Thames. And with a few cocktails, it's bound to get interesting...
9. Street Feast
London's Street Feast is one of the biggest and most diverse food markets in London, offering a plethora of mouthwatering delicacies for a suitably indulgent chow-down. Entry is free before 7pm, so it's a good excuse to hang out there all day before hitting up some of the bars at night serving speciality wines, spirits and craft beers.
