Valentine's Day for Singles 2014

Valentine’s Massacre at Quo Vadis Quo Vadis wins the prize for best party this year! You’ll need to bug / blag some tickets but see below for your chance to WIN them for free (don’t say we don’t spoil you). The club’s turning into a school sports hall - prom night style but with a dark twist.  Put on your ‘single’ ‘take’ or ‘try me’ badge and get into it. We’re talking 90's American pop culture heaven with a multi-coloured dance floor, giant disco balls, hot DJs, dry ice, booze from Bombay Sapphire and Russian Standard, then all that’s left is time to hit the kissing photo booth to find your prom date for the night. Going well? Upstairs things get a bit more private in the Petting Room (PDA welcome), a secret bar and pool room. Come dressed in your best prom gear because there will be prizes and a crowning of the prom king and queen. We're so in. BarChick’s got 2 sets of 5 tickets to give away. Email and tell us who’d you’d wanna take to the prom. Don’t Call It A Swingers Party - DoingSomething These crazy cats have always got something up their sleeve for singletons! DoingSomething, the dating site that’s less ‘swipe right for sexting’ and more ‘get out there and actually meet people’ is hosting a matchmaking party at golf pop up, Swingers. We’re talking a round of golf, cocktails and most importantly a room full of 250 single Londoners. You’ll be encouraged to swap partners on the 5th hole (take that as you will) and when the golf gets boring the place becomes a giant dancefloor. In? Why not. Swingers, 13 Hearn Street, London EC2A 3LS // 10th February, £18 for a double ticket, £11 for a single ticket Get P*ssed at a Mezcal Massacre at Barrio East The premise: it’s 1929 and sh*t got a bit crazy after a gang of Mexican singles hit the mezcal and tequila hard - carnage (sounds like the BarChicks on an average Friday). The party kicks off at 5pm and doesn’t stop ‘til 2, plenty of time to hit the tacos and tequila. Barrio East, 141-143 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JE // 14th February Get Loco in Soho Who says you’ve gotta have a date to enjoy Valentines? Grab a mate, head to Kettners for a cocktail and indulge in the sweet single life. On the menu are two specials; the “Lost MY Cherry” is garnished with a sunken cherry and the "Old Soho Fox" made with a touch of grenadine. Start here and head into Soho for a wild night out - you’re probably going to end up drinking tequila in El Camion’s basement at 4am, you know it makes sense. 29 Romilly Street, Soho, London W1D 5HP Red Single Valentine By The Mansion London  Calling all kinky singles who like a good party. This one promises erotic seduction and passionate partying at its best! NB: this is not an orgy. Sorry. They’ve got belly dancer duo Sassy la Showdoll, Miss Anna doing the face painting and iconic house DJs Fabrizia Corsi and Joffrey Bogart on the decks. The theme is sexy and a prize goes out to the sexiest. BarChick will see you there, trophy in hand. Holborn, London // 14th February, tickets from £25 + bf Booze 50 Shades of Style at Skylounge If you’ve got nothing planned for Valentine’s day don’t get down about it, get high instead. Head to Skylounge with your gang for their hot 50 Shades of Grey cocktail, if you haven’t read the book we imagine you’ll get the theme here. Made with peach puree, chillies, Xante Liquor, Kraken Rum, Gomme syrup, fresh lime juice and a passion fruit garnish, it’ll sex your night up in no time. 7 Pepys Street, London EC3N 4AF Brunch and Ice Skating Grab all your single mates (what's left of them) and get yourselves to One Canada Square for a two course brunch and UNLIMITED Prosecco, Bloody Marys or Bellinis! Follow that with an ice skating sesh at Canary Wharf's ice rink - the longest running ice rink in London FYI - because skating isn't just for loved up couples holding hands, it's for gaggles of pals who are filled up with Prosecco, obv. If you can't stand up from boozy brunching keep off the ice, safety first.
