Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

Skylight
Skylight is a happening rooftop in London's Tobacco Dock, housed in a former multi-story carpark. Head here to challenge your colleagues to a post-work game of pétanque in the summer, to go ice skating during winter or for creative cocktails with a killer view all year round.
Bottles
BOTTLES is a wine bar on the perimeter of Old Spitalfields Market that blends Italian charm with London edge. The drinking den's aim is to introduce wines from independent producers and lesser-known grapes in need of some attention.
Oslo
Occupying a disused railway station next to Hackney Central, Oslo is a little slice of Nordic heaven in London’s East End.
The Nest
The Nest, with its a killer Martin Audio sound system and intimate atmosphere, sets the bar for Dalston's clubbing scene.
Notting Hill Arts Club
The Notting Hill Arts Club is a glimpse of artsy rebellion in the heart of seriously smart West London; art exhibitions and credible music attract a bohemian crowd.
The Roundhouse
The newly reburbished Roundhouse plays host to rock, pop, theatre, dance, circus. And not just any old commercial guff, but the truly ground-breaking.
Proud Camden
Standing, er, proud in Camden is Proud Camden (pretty self-explanatory, really). One of the best things about it is a fabulous roof terrace festooned with sculptures and kitsch astroturf - perfect for sun-soaked al fresco drinking. yEventWa
606
This live-music venue is consistent with its smart Chelsea address. With strict rules to enforce professional standards, you'll find no bad karaoke performances here.
Resistance Gallery
A fantastical fetish-inspired space where mediocrity won't be tolerated; if you don't have an edge you're not getting in.
Dalston Superstore
So hip it hurts, Dalston Superstore is where the East End party is. Those who aren't achingly cool needn't apply.
Fabric
Despite misguided Twitter rumours that it had gone into administration, Fabric is very much alive and kicking. As a great supporter of underground DJs, it's a must for those serious about phat tunes. ‰Û_=display:none;""
93 Feet East
Located alongside the curry houses of Brick Lane, 93 Feet East attracts a post-dinner pre-clubbing crowd of Shoreditch-style drinkers.
Camden Assembly
Rock 'n' roll is the order of the day at Camden Assembly, the new reincarnation of Barfly, which plucked Oasis from obscurity way back when.
McQueen
Whether it's food, drink or dancing you fancy, super-fashionable bar-cum-restaurant-cum-club McQueen is sure to deliver.
Ronnie Scott’s
This London landmark may have undergone a £2-million reinvention, but that's not to say it's lost any of the old-school charm that's made it such a classic on the London club scene.
Cuckoo Club
Glamour is the name of the game at the Cuckoo Club, a sexy subterranean lair on Swallow Street. Ladies dig out your highest heels; gents dust off your sharpest suits.
