5 Sober Things To Do On a Friday Night In London

  1. Go to socials
    Whether you’re looking for partners in crime on social nights or new walking friends at the weekend, you will meet fab, friendly people from all walks of life. If you like comedy, dancing, free trips or if you want to Learn New Skills or like the idea of getting pampered for the day, Meet, Mix & Mingle or London Social Network offers you the chance to experience all of this in a safe, friendly environment, with other like minded people. Want to plan your social life for the weekend? Go right ahead! Look what’s coming up..
  2. A quiet night out
    The Museum of Happiness is a not-for-profit organisation with roots in – as you might have guessed – Silicon Valley and an outpost in – as you also might have guessed – Shoreditch. Put your assumptions to one side though if you fancy some friendly, soul-nourishing time at regular Friday night events based around sharing, mindfulness, and often silence – perhaps the modern world’s most valuable commodity – in an attempt to promote a “kinder, happier and more playful” world.
  3. Cultural adventures
    Museum curators must simultaneously praise and curse the success of the Night at the Museum movies. While they’re a great promotional tool, they also bring the idea of round-the-clock opening hours to light. London has perhaps the world’s greatest museums, and many of them have risen to the challenge of the 24-hour city with imagination and verve. Amongst the best are gigs at the British Library, talks and interactive explorations in the Science Museum, and Night Safaris around the spooky galleries of the Natural History Museum. Check listings for the latest way to shed some light on the capital’s cultural heritage.
  4. Dance the night away
    You’ll feel you’re further north than Camden at The Ceilidh Club, a regular Friday night special at Cecil Sharp House in NW1. These nights claim to be among the best three hours of fun you can have on a Friday night in London, and you’re advised to book to get in. What you won’t need is any advanced knowledge of Scottish music or dancing as you’ll be “called” through your steps by experts. Tartan clothing is appreciated but not required say the organisers.
  5. Movies by night
    If you love nothing more than getting home and switching on a screen, then stay out, make it a big screen and enjoy fantastically curated late-night movie marathons at the Rio Cinema in Dalston. Taking in a wide range of themes, these nights will take you from Friday night well into Saturday morning at one of East London’s best movie houses.
