If you’re tired of listening to all your loved-up friends banging on about Valentine’s Day, Singles Awareness Day on 15th February is the perfect excuse to band together with your girls and celebrate being free and independent – but then, why should you need an excuse? With that in mind, here are some great venues you could choose as the setting for a top girls’ night.
Designed by Tibbets Abel, the people behind some of the world’s very best nightclub venues and go-to party hotspots, Club Azure is a slick, modern and stylish space that has turned its hand to a diverse range of events. With a great atmosphere and a good capacity of more than 300, it’s an ideal spot to gather with friends, and being found so close to the likes of Enfield Town and Enfield Chase stations, it’s also well connected and easy to get to from far and wide.
Very flexible when it comes to the size of your party, Graphic Bar is available for both partial and full hire, accommodating guest lists that range anywhere between 20 and 220. The kitchen serves delicious sharing plates, canapes and bowl foods, perfect to satisfy the hunger you’ll work up dancing away to great music courtesy of the DJs. Perhaps best of all however is the phenomenal selection of gins on offer, as with more than 300 varieties, you’ll surely be spoilt for choice.
Spread across 2 floors, XOYO boasts an expertly-tuned, top quality sound system that has helped cement its reputation as a solid music venue and late-night party destination. Well versed in adapting to suit particular needs however, they have hosted other events as diverse as corporate conferences and Christmas parties, so they certainly know how to show everyone a good time, and with a total capacity of 900 that’s sure to be a lot of happy people!
With 3 floors of versatile event space to its name, Hackney House has put on everything from product launches to film nights, and weddings to press events, so rest assured that you’re in good hands. With an urban style to its spaces, it’s bang on trend, with other handy features adding to its allure that include a café and in-house food team to handle any catering needs, a bar with a roof terrace, a generous capacity of close to 500, and a plethora of local transport links.

Perhaps its greatest selling-point however is the wraparound landscaped terrace, which offers not only a lovely space to step out for some fresh air but stunning panoramic views out onto London.
On 14th February, instead of reaching out for Ben&Jerry’s with a Bridget Jones marathon in the background, grab your mates and head off to Trapeze to celebrate anti-Valentine’s Day Dates with your Mates. However, if you would rather stay in on V Day, and instead go out in the weekend, 17th February is Ladies’ Night: gather your girlfriends and embrace your singledom! Perfect for a club night, Trapeze’s décor is anything but reserved with bold colours and clashing patterns at every glance bringing a sense of fun and creativity. Private areas can be hired out for groups of up to 60 people, and its close proximity to Old Street, Shoreditch High Street and Liverpool Street stations sure to come in handy.
