Enjoyed an awesome night out at Fairgame London, such a fun place to hang out with friends and have a great time without having to worry about booze. There’s lots to do; from arcade games, pool, beer pong and plenty of other activities. We were all having a blast, couldn’t help but sing the tunes they were playing and the staff were really friendly. Highly recommend, had a great time and can’t wait to come back.

Had an amazing time at TOCA Social Greenwich, where everyone got to experience a great night out without the need for alcohol. The upbeat atmosphere, music and drinks of course were all fab! Some of the highlights for me were playing table tennis and taking snaps of the quirky grafitti walls. Great fun for friends, families and couples - highly recommended!

I popped by Sixes Social Cricket the other day in London to have some alcohol-free fun. It was amazing, with cosy vibes, awesome music, friendly atmosphere and entertaining games. Laughed a lot playing some cricket and deck games. Had a great time without having to drink anything! Such a fresh alternative to the noisy pubs and traditional cricket. Highly recommend anyone looking for a unique and relaxed day out.

I recently ventured to the Players Social. At this hip Shoreditch bar I enjoyed a night of lively and exuberance, without having to resort to booze. Instead, there was a fabulous variety of mocktails and smoothies to delight in! In the vibrant atmosphere, I chatted with friends, amused myself with games, and even danced to some banging tunes. The night was definitely full of enjoyment and entertainment - I'm definitely keen to return next time!

I had a blast at F1 Arcade in City of London. With a variety of activities and games, it was an excellent way to pass an evening without alcohol. Some friends and I took part in a few rounds of air hockey, there was also a race track where we zoomed around and had a few races. We played a few rounds of cards and subsequently I was the ‘winner’ several times. My friends and I loved the non-alcoholic prices too, it made a refreshing change from the usual bar. A great time was had by us all.

I recently visited Birdies Angel in Islington and had a blast! It was the perfect spot for a relaxed get together with friends. We had a great time playing pool, singing along to the jukebox and enjoying food and non-alcoholic drinks. There was a fantastic energy in the room; the staff were so friendly and the atmosphere was bubbly. I plan to return soon to keep the good vibes going.
