If you’re missing the pub then you’re not alone. We get you. So, to solve your FOMO, we’ve put together a list of the best ways to have a night out, when you’re stuck in.
It’s been 3 months since the pubs closed (well, it feels like it has). We get it; you’re missing the club, you want to dance your heart out to Popworld’s anthems, and you’re dying for your local’s pub quiz. So, to quench your thirst, here’s a list of our fave ways to relieve that night out FOMO.
Anyone for bingo?
If you’ve never heard of Bongo’s Bingo, where have you been?! These legendary events combine the classic, humble game of bingo with club vibes, a whole bunch of prizes, and plenty of bevs to go around. Bongo’s Bingo is bringing the night out to you this quarantine. They’re streaming their classic bingo nights at 8pm on Twitch three times a week, so you don’t miss out on the fun. Find all the deets on their Instagram.
Get your rave on
Fancy a rave this weekend? Ibiza Rocks have uploaded all of their most ICONIC performances onto their YouTube channel, as well as some recent #KitchenRaves. With Chase and Status, Craig David, David Guetta, Rudimental, Stormzy and Ed Sheeran all on the line up, it’s deffo worth shouting about. Prep your living room for the upcoming rave, make your fave cocktails, and turn your speakers up to full blast to recreate your fave festivals from home.
Visit the ePub
Anyone for the pub? Then you’re in luck. BrewDog have created the BrewDog Online Bar, so you don’t have to skip the pub when self-isolating. Dubbed the ‘ultimate night in’, the guys at BrewDog are putting on weekly pub quizzes (1000+ people joined last weekend!), live music and pub vibes. The catch? You have to bring your own beer (totally worth it).
Have a cocktail party
Ready to test your cocktail-making skills? Bring the bar to you this weekend by hosting a virtual cocktail party. Set a time, tell your mates, and send them a list of ingredients to grab on their next shopping trip (yes, of course gin and lemonade will do). This list by BBC Good Food is a great place to start for recipes.
Movie night, anyone?
Looking for a quiet night in? Why not have a movie night? If you haven’t heard of Netflix Party, then you’re in for a treat. This browser extension allows you to stream any Netflix film remotely with your mates, all at the same time. It even pulls up a group chat for you, or you could jump on FaceTime for some proper social time. Shove on your PJs, grab a glass of wine and get comfy for the best cosy night-in ever.
