Evening activity for 2 on a Friday night (Holborn/Soho): suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I'll be staying with my sister at the Club Quarters hotel, London (located around Lincoln's Inn/Kingsway), for a weekend in April. We were looking for something fun for us both to do on the Friday evening but this is proving tricky, so I was hoping that Fodor's could help...!

Our first thought was karaoke....however, it seems to be very difficult to find a karaoke night in London when you are only a group of two, as most places seem to cater for larger groups. If anyone knows of a karaoke night in this area, that would be great. We are just looking for something informal - rock up, have a few drinks, sign up to sing a few songs...not rent a room or anything.

Soooo we did have another idea: roller disco! However, because of work commitments, I won't be arriving in London until about a quarter to nine in the evening on the Friday. The main roller disco we've found starts at 8pm, so by the time I've dropped off my stuff at the hotel and we've got some dinner and got ready to go out, it will have been underway for probably at least two hours, so it's maybe not worth going by that stage.

Does anybody have any suggestions of fun stuff we can do in the area on the Friday night that would fit with these timings? We're two girls in our early/mid 20s and so would ideally like this to be within very short walking distance of the hotel we are staying at (no long tube/cab rides across London late at night please :) ). With thanks in advance :)
