Man’s best friend: he’s called that for a reason – and we say it’s because you rarely spend any time apart. And none so is that more apparent than at the weekend, when man and pooch head out for a long-awaited stroll and a visit to the pub.
At the beginning of the pub quiz, it can seem like a great idea to pick the very first team name that springs to mind. That is until the final round of the night, when it dawns on you that once the scores are totted up the quizmaster will reel off the list of winners – and losers...
What’s a long, brisk walk in the cool, crisp air if it isn’t for the pint at the end? Pointless, we say! The fact is, if you’ve done the legwork, you deserve the leg rest – and that goes for your pooch, too. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite dog-friendly pubs here in the UK. Grab Archie’s lead and dust off those old trainers – it’s walkies time!
Heading to London for a long-awaited night out? If you’re down in the big smoke, the question isn’t if you’ll have a good night, but where to go – or where to start? There are so many cool bars and clubs on offer that you’ll literally be spoiled for choice.
Ah, the ice bar! It’s one of London’s most popular venues – and come rain or shine, hot weather or otherwise, bar hoppers will no doubt be queuing up to head inside. But what to drink once you’re in there? The question is where to start?
When it comes to wining and dining, it doesn’t get more decadent than when it’s enjoyed at a height. Whether making a reservation at Las Vegas’ Stratosphere Tower, or sipping on cocktails at Manchester’s Cloud 23 Sky Bar, there’s definitely something very luxurious about rooftop socialising.
You know the old saying: ‘there’s always one’ – and when it comes to pub quizzes, the phrase takes on a meaning of its own. After all, there most certainly is always one – we are, of course, referring to that ‘smart Alec’ friend who knows the answer to each and every question...
Consider the last time you went on a bar crawl and didn’t see a load of fellas dressed in golfing gear – and we’re not talking the time you stopped at your local golf club either. The fact is, a round of ‘pub golf’ is still a failsafe bar crawl option when it comes to ensuring you all keep the pace when out with the lads – or lasses.
Those that enjoy the finer things in life are in the right place if they’re situated in London. With everything from slick city bars to cool cabaret clubs at your fingertips, you really don’t need to venture outside of the capital. And thanks to a new influx of cocktail clubs, there’s now even more reason to stay put and enjoy all the ‘big smoke’ has to offer.
With Christmas on the horizon, one thing’s for certain – friends, family and neighbours are bound to pop in unannounced, usually bearing gifts and more often than not stopping for a quick cuppa or a bite to eat. But with panic setting in and only a mini mart around the corner, what do you do?
