How to build an app

At Clubbable we often get asked about how to build an app and where to start. This is actually something me, Magnus, the founder and CEO of Clubbable sometimes gives lectures on so I thought I might as well write a post about it and hopefully help some aspiring entrepreneurs.

Unless you have a ton of money that you are happy to spend, I would advise against going to an agency who will do everything they can to take all your money. Even if you agree on a fixed price for your project you will inevitably need to change or add things and then it turns into a battle of what was meant to be included and not.


If you have zero money you might think the only option is to learn the skills needed and build it yourself. Though I encourage learning this will not result in anything usable anytime within the next few years. Development is best left to the professionals. What you should do instead is to work on a pitch of your vision and persuade someone who has the funds to invest in your startup. This is a separate topic on its own but when you approach someone for investment you need to have a valuation of your idea in mind which you honestly feel someone else would agree on. Let’s say, you think after talking to someone technical it will cost  $50k to build your product and reach profitability or to prove that you have a promising business so you can seek more investment. If you are willing to give away 25% of your business for $50k this means you value your business at $200k. Most investors will push for a larger % than what you are offering and by that essentially lowering the valuation.


The way to get your app or website developed is to hire freelancers directly. There are plenty of freelancer websites out there such as freelancer.com and upwork.com. There you post the job and the candidates on there will apply. If you have knowledge of development you should get someone to help you define what kind of developer you need and to help you finding the right candidate.


Before you even consider hiring someone you should document exactly what it is you want to have built. Start with a high level overview then break it down to what pages your system should have and what should be on them. For this, old fashioned pen and paper is usually the best way to go. Draw them out. Do not worry about design at this stage since you will for sure change this many times. Once you have documented what you want to build it is time to have a think what would be the most stripped down version of your product. All non essential bells and whistles should be excluded. This version is what you refer to as a minimal viable product or MVP. The book “Zero to one” by PayPal founder Peter Thiel talks about this in detail and is a recommended read.


Once your MVP is defined it is time to break it down further into workable chunks and put these into “cards”. There are several online ticket boards you can use so you can easily queue up the work for your developer in the order you want things to be done and track progress. At Clubbable we use Visual Studio Online for our tickets and to store the source code which is free for up to 5 developers. The first ticket could be something like “Splash screen with logo” saying that when the app is started your logo should be shown while app is starting the show, a welcome screen then keep progressing step by step like that.


It is highly recommended that you are deeply involved in the development progress on a daily basis and you agree with your developer that a working version of the app should be available to you if not on a daily basis then at least weekly so you can come with feedback. You should take on the role as the ”Tester” yourself as well as project manager. As a tester you do 2 things:

  • Check that the work was done according to the ticket

  • Try to find bugs anywhere in the app

This way you can focus your vision and quickly see what works and not so you can tweak your product as you go along.


In the olden days you had to build the iPhone and Android apps completely separately. Surprisingly way too many of the highly regarded agencies will argue you still have to do so in order to get the authentic iPhone and Android look and feel. This is simply not true anymore. There are several options to having only to build one app. Many of them are so called hybrid solutions where you pretty much build a mobile website and wrap it up in an app. While the nativeness and performance of these are getting closer and closer to the real thing, they are still more of a hack for web developers to be able to build apps with web tech.

We at Clubbable use a platform now owned by Microsoft called Xamarin which produces true native apps with a single implementation. One of the advantages with Xamarin is that it uses the programming language C#, pronounced “C sharp” for which it is relatively easy to find really good developers for.


Make sure to get a really good developer who takes pride in writing quality code and to maintain top principles and procedures. It is time and money well spent getting a so called Continuous Integration build (CI) set up which checks that the app at least builds and perform some simple checks automatically for every change made. Over time the saved efforts will add up. For this we, at Clubbable, use BitRise which also produces the working apps sent to the store for the testers to install every night.


Other technical solutions we use:

  • Slack for team chat and various notifications

  • AppCenter by Microsoft for error/crash reporting

  • Facebook analytics to monitor how the app is used which also ties in magically with the advertising

  • Google Analytics is a given for the website

  • SendingBlue for newsletters

  • Twilio for masked number phone calls between guests and promoters

  • ZenSend for sms sending

  • Google docs for all documents

  • GIT (provided by Visual Studio Online) for storing all code

  • Xero for accounting

  • Fiverr.com to hire people for small jobs


Tip: Sign up for FbStart by Facebook for lots of free stuff including $500 advertising credit.


One mantra you will hear from every entrepreneur, including myself, that does sound counterproductive at first is: Do not keep your idea a secret! Pitch it to everyone who gives you 2 seconds of attention. Not only will you need to be excellent at pitching it in order to secure funding but this also will give you lots of valuable feedback and generate questions and angles you never would have thought about otherwise. Being able to get people excited about your project will be a constant challenge not least when it comes to PR and marketing so get started and definitely do not even think about keeping your vision to yourself until it's finished. Get started with pitching.

-But what if they steal my idea you think?

They will not! But if your idea is that great they will do so anyway once you release it. You just need to make sure you are doing it better than anyone else.


People often ask me: How much does it cost to build an app?

Well how much does it cost to build a house. That of course depends how complicated and refined it should be. Any developer would be able to build a calculator style app in a few hours while something like Facebook where the app itself is just a small part of the system will spend 2 billion dollars per year on research and development.

I can not disclose how much Clubbable has spent so far but the money would certainly buy you a decent villa or 2 :)


LONDON'S 10 BEST AND MOST ORIGINAL CLUBS
28 May 2018

LONDON'S 10 BEST AND MOST ORIGINAL CLUBS

Whether you're out and about in London for the first time, you're a local getting to grips with the nightlife of the beautiful English capital, or you're just tired of your usual haunts and looking for something new, chances are you want to know what are the best places to spend your time and money.


Of course, we can't guarantee that every club is perfect for everyone. But there are as many unique, original clubs in London as there are tastes, so among these top ten you're bound to find one you will love.


10: Café de Paris.

Café de Paris manages to combine youthfulness and sexiness with sophistication and history. One of the oldest clubs in London, you might think that it would be outdated after seeing over ninety years of party-goers. Far from it, Café de Paris retains its historic glamour whilst providing some of the best and most modern beats, as well as up to date cabaret shows. This delightful nightclub is not only a full experience, but a celebrity hot-spot, seeing singers, actors, and even royals in its VIP rooms.


9: Jungle.

The only reason this club isn't higher on the list is because it is fairly new as of writing this list and yet to prove itself long-term. From what we've seen so far, though? It may very well end up as #1 in no time. The theme of jungles and rainforests is insane, with sexy performers dressed as cavegirls and animals, luxurious tropical drinks, and an immersive setting with stunning rock formations, plants, and giant elephant statues, designed to draw your wild side out. Promising!


8: Drama.

Drama by name, drama by nature. If you are an innovator, rule-breaker, a dreamer who wants to experience the heights of luxury and one of the most hedonistic clubs in London. Combining the fun of pop art with a sexy dance floor and a wide selection of delightful cocktails and bottle service options, it has everything you need if you're young and fun. It can be insanely selective, as it only has room for three hundred guests, so make sure to book a table well in advance to make sure you can get in.


7: The Cuckoo Club.

If you want all of the VIP treatment of an old-school members' club and all the modernity London has to offer, then the Cuckoo Club is the place you want to be. The highest quality bespoke cocktails, acclaimed DJs, and beautiful guests left and right. Not to mention, the most important part of a VIP experience: the customer service. Stunningly beautiful waitresses and hostesses will cater to your every need. Make sure to get on the guest list or reserve a table for the full experience.


6: Cirque le Soir.

Going strong since 2009, Cirque le Soir has proven itself to be one of the finest nightclubs in London. Cirque le Soir combined a great, luxurious nightclub with a more casual sort of fun night out. Clown dancers, contortionists, stilt walkers and go go dancers abound, and there are arcade games for guests to play. On the stages the acts get even more outrageous, carrying on the circus theme with angle grinder performances, snake charmers, and models performing aerial acrobatics. All the fun of a funfair, with all the luxury of a high-end club.


5: Tonteria.

The latest and hottest trend is for themed nightclubs, and Tonteria embodies that spirit. Embracing Mexican day of the dead and Aztec aesthetics, this fun and sexy nightclub has a distinct vibe to it that you won't find anywhere else in London. Famous for its fun sharing cocktails, also themed, you are sure to have a great time when you bring your friends round to this quirky London club. It also has one of the broadest and highest quality selections of tequila in the world. So drink up! This is the place to be on a Monday night.


4: Shaka Zulu.

If you want to visit a fun themed club, but Mexico isn't quite your style, why not try out a club that brings you to the heart of tribal Africa? Shaka Zulu is the height of tribal and historic opulence, making you feel like you are in the home of some ancient African king. Elaborate carvings, delicious South African cuisine, and a party that will rock you all night long. If you want a place where you can sample zebra meat for dinner, and rock out to the hottest DJs in London as the night goes on, this is it.


3: Reign Showclub.

As London's first showclub it offers an unforgettable experience. It is the talk of London for all its amazing attributes. The interiors are stunning. If you want to feel like you are in Las Vegas, this is the place to be. Bright lights, glamour, and showtime décor all come together to make you feel like a celebrity being treated to a private burlesque experience. Want to dine among pyro cannons, jellyfish tanks, flying acrobatics and confetti? There is nowhere else in London that will offer you this experience. There is nothing less than wow factor everywhere you look in Reign Club.


2: Mahiki.

When it comes to the trend for themed clubs, the Mahiki, and its sister club, the Mahiki Kensington, stand head and shoulders above the rest. The Polynesian Tiki decor is authentic and everywhere, and the cocktails and light bites are tropical and refreshing. A far cry from the busy streets of London just beyond the door, you will be transported to a party in paradise. These venues are catnip for celebrities, seeing Rihanna, Drake, Nicola Roberta, Lady Gaga and more within its walls.


1: The Box.

The Box occupies the space which once hosted the Soho Revue bar, but the venue is totally transformed. Located in the heart of Soho, it embraces the talented artists and local atmosphere, bringing sexy, crazy acts to the stage. Known for bordering on the obscene, the acts push the limits both in terms of defying convention and in terms of exploring new and obscure indie acts. A full night out with bottle service is recommended, as the show often gets better and better as the night goes on. And, naturally, it gets busy, so reservations are a must.


What is your favourite London club? Did it make the list? Have you checked out all these places yet? And if not, what are you waiting for?

10 INSANE CLUBS YOU HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE

10 INSANE CLUBS YOU HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE

10 INSANE CLUBS YOU HAVE TO SEE TO BELIEVE


In the clubbing world, we'd be lying if we didn't say it can get a bit samey. Some club owners like to play it safe, modelling all their venues after clubs that are already successful. And some clubs have been around so long that even though they are glamorous and historic, they don't really have the same "wow factor" today that they had back when they opened.


But many modern clubs are noticing this demand for newer, fresher, more fascinating shows, and extreme boundary testing. And whilst some cases, like the horse at the Mokai club in Miami, miss the mark and end up a bit of a mess, many of these clubs succeed in bringing us an experience that totally blows our minds.


Here we have, in no particular order, some of the strangest, most over the top, and most extravagant clubs that are a complete experience in and of themselves. Within the walls of these venues you will forget you are in a big city, and feel transported to a completely different world. If you are a seeker of the extreme, never satisfied with repeating an experience, always ready for something brand new, then these clubs may be for you.


AVALON - SINGAPORE

The Avalon in Singapore is a pretty interesting experience. Located out on a man-made island in the bay, this venue is a sort of futuristic house party type of experience, housing everything from a private theatre room to VIP booths, from a traditional dance floor to a chill lounge. The lower volume of the music compared to other clubs encourages you to roam and mingle, taking in all the sights and sounds this beautiful club has to offer.


L'AQUARIUM - PARIS, FRANCE

L'Aquarium nightclub might seem like a fairly chill, ordinary club at first. But there is something about rocking out underneath a massive wall of water, where stunning, exotic sea creatures swim right beside you, that you cannot put into words. This magical experience will have you feeling like an actual mermaid, or merman, and is not something to miss out on.


JUNGLE - LONDON, UK

Taking the trend of concept clubs to the extreme, Jungle in London is a truly immersive experience, with everything from the decorations, to the drinks, to the performances and the waitresses outfits, being jungle or wild themed. Other than the music and your fellow guests, you wouldn't believe you were in the UK, let alone London. Actors dressed as animals and tribal people roam among the tables. You will actually feel like you've been dropped into the middle of the Amazon.


WET REPUBLIC - LAS VEGAS, USA

If you ever wanted to go on a crazy Spring Break style party, but sort of missed the window, you can still go wild at the Wet Republic dayclub in Las Vegas. The only Vegas saltwater pools, combined with 54,500 square feet of pools and cabanas and a list of awards six feet long, this is a place you have to see.


THE SAYERS CLUB - LOS ANGELES, USA

Even people living just down the road from The Sayers Club would be forgiven for not knowing it exists. Taking the "prohibition-era speakeasy" trend to a whole new height, this boutique club is hidden away in an unmarked building, only the rare queue letting you know it's not an abandoned recording studio. And inside? Straight out of golden era Hollywood films, with vintage and retro features everywhere, and excellent bottle service.


1OAK - DUBAI, UAE

Although the 1OAK's pedigree precedes it, with the 1OAK New York and 1OAK LA being famous for their unique vibe and exclusivity, the Dubai incarnation takes the usual class and glamour up to Emirate standards. You have not experienced true luxury, sensuality, and mystique in a nightclub until you have been here, guaranteed. This fresh new club is somewhere between trippy and regal, a true VIP experience you have to enjoy at least once in a lifetime.


STURECOMPAGNIET - STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN

The Sturecompagniet nightclub complex offers a powerful variety of luxurious experiences, all under one roof. The main club, known to the locals simple as the Sture, is relaxed and fun, with a sort of preppy vibe to it. The Suite is a trendier, more relaxed traditional bar, an oasis of class away from the city. And the V club is an ultra-exclusive, sophisticated VIP club.


MAGIC HOUR - NEW YORK, USA

If you like the world of the weird and wonderful, but you prefer a more relaxed nightclub experience, then the Magic Hour club may be the place for you. Split into five distinct environments, this rooftop nightclub offers sexy animal girls and a mini golf course called Foreplay, with even more sexy anthropomorphic creatures. There is even a seating area that spins like a carousel, and an upscale garden party. Pure, relaxed whimsy!


THE BOX - LONDON, UK & NEW YORK, USA

Anyone who's already been to The Box in either of its venues knows that it's a... unique experience. The Box's claim to fame is that it is the most limit-pushing, raunchiest, eclectic show available in any modern nightclub. You could see anything from a drag show, to a local indie band, to people playing their bodies like instruments, and so much more. The experience is always fresh, every time.


BESSONICA - MOSCOW, RUSSIA

Bessonica doesn't count on the greatest DJs ever, or a fish tank wall, or giant sexy bunnies. What the Bessonica nightclub does have is the best dystopian atmosphere ever. An all-night party set in a circus tent, between burning fires and rough metallic finishes, where trapeze artists and acrobats perform stunts to delight the crowd. You will feel like you're a superhero in post-apocalyptic Russia, enjoying yourself with the other victorious survivors.


Has your favourite club made the list? If you think we missed out a club that deserves a mention, why not give us a shout, tell us which club you want to see and why it is totally insane, and we'll make sure to include it in the next post!

Nightclub Dress Codes

Nightclub Dress Codes

The biggest dos and don'ts when it comes to what to wear


When it comes to choosing an outfit for a night out, it can be hard to work out exactly what each club wants. What one club accepts in the VIP, another rejects at the door. And a club without an advertised dress code could turn out to have one that is not usually advertised.


Now, let's just make it clear that there is no one outfit that will get you into all the clubs you like. Some even have dress codes that directly contradict one another. But if you follow these guidelines, you will have a better idea of what a club expects of you, and of what to pack when you go on a club-focused holiday.


The Smart Casual:

This look will help you get into most nightclubs. Many of us are familiar with this look, as it's how we dress when we want to make a little effort: smart jeans, a polo shirt or button down shirt, and some nice shoes. Women can get away with a nice shirt and jeans, but regardless of your sex or dress style, you need to make sure you're making a visible effort.


Black Tie:

If you will be attending an exclusive event, this will probably be the dress code. The rules are at their strictest for men, who are expected to wear a tuxedo or a three piece dinner jacket suit, preferably with a black bow tie and a starched white shirt. Something many men neglect is a pocket square, which really elevates an outfit from "rental tux" to "Hollywood lux". Women need to wear a gown, or at the very least a high-end cocktail dress in black, metallics, or jewel tones. And women should not neglect the details either! Jewellery ought to be attractive, kept to a minimum, and matching where possible. Shoes must be heels or very expensive-looking flats.


Black Tie Optional:

Contrary to popular belief, "black tie optional", or BTO dress code, doesn't mean "like black tie, but without the tie"! What it actually means is you can choose between black tie dress code, or formal business dress code. This allows those who wish to dress very formally to dress up as much as they like, but for those who do not have a tux in their wardrobe to attend without renting one. If you choose to wear business style clothes, make sure that you dress as you would for the most important interview of your life. The tie is, in fact, not optional. Women would do better to wear a cocktail dress at the very least, but a dressed up pencil skirt and blouse could work. You can't really be overdressed at a black tie or BTO event.


Business Casual:

This is a dresscode anyone who's worked in an office will be familiar with. A comfortable suit, tailored or non-tailored, a button-down shirt, no need for a tie or cufflinks. Women can wear smart office dresses, or pencil skirts with blouses. Something you could wear to work, but a bit more relaxed.


Evening/Lounge Wear:

Think "celebs at the Oscars". This is pure class, but with a touch of the casual, a touch of the personal. Unlike black tie, or BTO, you can wear much more extravagant cuts and colours. You could get away with rhinestones, or printed fabrics as well. So long as you look expensive and glamorous, this dress code offers plenty of creative freedom.


Super Sexy:

Many first-time club-goers, or people used to hitting "junior" clubs and other clubs targeting a younger audience may assume this is the best way to dress when clubbing. Outfits that cover the bare essentials and nothing else, v-necks down to the navel, and fetish wear for miles. However, other than for very specific clubs, this can be too much, and even if you get in, you might feel uncomfortable if you are the only person so bare. Instead, aim for eveningwear or a party style outfit.


Party:

A slightly more sophisticated take on the super sexy looks, you are more covered, but still showing off, with a touch of the fun and casual. Think skater dresses, a loose-fitting silk shirt and jeans, a white suit, or a bodycon dress that creates a sleek outline.


Pool Clothes:

Unless you are at a dayclub pool party, they are an absolute no-go. However at some pool parties they are mandatory.


Sportswear:

No matter what the club is like, you are at risk of being turned away if you show up dressed like a highschooler straight out of gym class. Avoid any plain, untidy/dirty, or highly functional sportswear. You might get away with calling your Adidas hi-tops "streetwear", but your toe shoes are not getting in. Ever. Save them for the gym.


Streetwear:

Included in streetwear is: stylized and/or non-functional sports shoes, casual shoes, men's jewellery, baggy clothes, anything denim except jeans, leather outfits, etc. Some clubs have very strict rules against streetwear. Others are more lenient. The rule of thumb is to avoid distressed or sporty looks, but besides that, stylish streetwear is accepted in some venues.


Alternative Looks:

Alternative fashion is by no means discriminated against in clubs. That said, if you get turned away from a club for looking like a rejected member of KISS, you weren't turned away for being goth, but for being sloppy. Make sure your look is classy, and it won't matter if your hair is blue, your lipstick is black, and your earrings are little spider webs.


Coats and Bags:

A Catch-22 of clubbing: You need enough bag and/or pocket space to carry your money, and maybe even a change of shoes if the weather demands it. But you also need to travel light, as bulky coats and bags are discouraged in clubs. Not only are they unattractive, and cumbersome to handle, but they can become a tripping hazard, or even get lost in a busy club.


If you must bring a large coat or bag, take what you need with you and check it into the cloakroom. You will save yourself, and the club staff, a lot of trouble.


Shoes, shoes, shoes...

Wherever you go, unless you are hitting a pool party, make sure your shoes are elegant. For gentlemen, this means shiny leather shoes. For ladies, this usually means heels, though if you cannot wear heels, some beautiful ballet flats will suffice.


Finally, remember once again that every club has its own dress code and rules, and that these might change for special events! So always make sure to look up a club's dress code on Clubbable, and if in doubt, to ask your promoter about the dress code before booking.

Inhouse Promoter
20 May 2018

Inhouse Promoter

A so called “in-house” promoter is someone who is working directly for the club unlike a freelance promoter. The freelancers tend to do a different club each night of the week while the inhouse ones typically only work for one club or possibly a few within the same ownership.


Since the inhouse promoters work directly for the club they most often have a good relationship with the door staff and can arrange for smoother entry if you as a guest accept a guest list offer from them. They may also be able to get a more generous supply of free drinks for their promoter table. That said though there are plenty of top freelance promoters who have excellent relations with the clubs and can sort out hassle free entry and plenty of booze anyway.


In Clubbable club managers/owners and promoters who work directly for a club club can get awarded inhouse status for that club which then gives them the following perks:

  • Offers from inhouse promoter are marked as recommended in the list of offers the guests receive

  • They are authorised to edit the details of the club on our website which is also reflected in the app

  • They can upload posters for upcoming events


If you fit the criteria simply contact us and we sort it out for you. With our recommendation to the guests comes extra responsibility. If you as a in-house promoter fail to get the guests in we will remove the inhouse status privilege without warning unless the circumstances are understandable.

At some point inhouse users will also be able to post job ads on behalf of the club for any job openings at the club which our users can see and apply for in the app and on the website. In the meantime people who are keen to work in a nightclub is welcome to apply on the bar staff job post in our careers section on the website. Club managers who are recruiting are encouraged to get in touch and we will put you in touch with the candidates we have.


If you are a promoter but not yet have the the Clubbable app or promoter access simply download the app and press "Apply for promoter access" in the menu in the app and we will review your application. It is completely free to get the app and get promoter access. You can read more about how it works for promoters.


In the photo you see Syed who is one of the top promoters in London and he is highly recommended. Even though he operates at several clubs he is considered inhouse at Reign Showclub in London

Hottest dayclubs in Vegas
18 May 2018

Hottest dayclubs in Vegas

So it is officially dayclub season in the Northern Hemisphere!

 

All around the US, dayclubs are opening their doors once again for excited
guests. But what actually is a dayclub? And are they worth it?

 

Dayclubs are exactly what it says on the box: a club that largely operates
by day, but that maintains the great beats, exclusivity, and flowing drinks of
a nightclub. Dayclubs are a great idea, especially during the Summer, when warm
weather makes you crave a dip in the pool.

 

And if you want to hit an amazing dayclub in the USA, look no further than
Las Vegas. Now, Las Vegas never used to be known for its daylife. Not only did
the nightlife really steal the scene, but, let's be honest, nobody goes to Vegas
to see grandpa James with his hairy beer belly hanging out, taking a mob of
ice-cream covered kids to the pool. That is not the glamorous experience
we signed up for.

 

Fortunately, there are plenty of options when you want to party in style by
day. During late Spring and all through the Summer, Las Vegas's best dayclubs
open their doors for eager partygoers. Hit any of the best dayclubs in Vegas,
and you can make sure the party never ends.

 

Wet Republic: A Crazy "Spring Break Style"
Pool Party.

If you have always wanted to experience the all-American, movie-style
Spring Break, then this is the place you want to be. With Las Vegas's only
saltwater pools, you get the best of the beach, the best of the nightclub, and
the best of the pool, all rolled into one, under the warm Summer sun! Voted
Thrillist's Best Pool Party in the US, you're guaranteed a great time.

 

Liquid Pool Lounge: An Oasis From Daytime Vegas.

If the sights and sounds of daytime Las Vegas have you wishing you could
just sleep until the club open again, then the Liquid Pool Lounge is a great
place for you. It's a contemporary, luxurious club that provides both relaxation
and party atmosphere in spades.

 

Rehab: Among The Top 10 Pools In the World.

The Travel Channel assigned Rehab a place among the top 10 pools in the
world, and its expansive selection of pools and cabanas makes sure that your
poolside experience is nothing short of VIP. Unlike some more relaxed pool
parties, Rehab keeps the energy high all day long. Expect to be dancing,
swimming, popping bottles, and playing blackjack all day.

 

Lavo Dayclub: Nightclub Glamour By Day.

Of course, not everyone wants a high-energy dayclub experience. Some of us
would rather relish the chill atmosphere and glamour of the VIP rooms at the
club, with a comfortable lounge experience, intimacy, and true class. You will
find all this at Lavo Dayclub.

 

Daylight Beach Club: Bringing Ibiza To The USA.

There is something unique about the allure of the Ibiza party life. The
combination of the crowds, the great music, the all-day party, and the quality
of the VIP options makes it a well-rounded experience. Daylight Beach Club
brings those same elements together for one of the best dayclub experiences in
Mandalay Bay.

 

Encore Beach Club: Literally The Best Dayclub.

Although different publications and club reviewers will all list a different
dayclub as "the best" based on their personal preference, at the end
of the day, the real title is given by the guests.
Encore is loved by its clientele for being
highly exclusive, with a more adult version of the Spring Break type of
atmosphere, perfect music by celebrity DJs, and even celebrity guests.

 

All in all, if you want
to hit an American dayclub or four this Summer, Vegas is the place to be. Out
in this wild party city, you can expect 24/7 fun and music.

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Parties
02 May 2018

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Parties

Starting on Tuesday the 8th of May, running until the 19th, the Cannes Film Festival, arguably one of the most glamorous international art and culture events in the world, will be bringing us the heights of sophisticated company, exclusive previews, and, of course, amazing nightlife experiences. You will never live nightlife like Cannes Film Festival nightlife.
In fact, as every year is unique in its own way, you will never experience Cannes Film Festival 2018 unless you are there.

Happening at the most desirable and dreamy scenery – the French Riviera – where the world’s elite gather to amuse themselves and network, you’ll get life changing experiences. What about spotting your teenage movie star crush on the red carpet, or crossing paths with rising stars of today on the beach promenade, La Croisette, dancing with music artists at Baôli, partying at Leonardo DiCaprio’s yacht or attending VIP beach parties by Clubbable  ?

But even with 11 days of events, and approximately two weeks to discover this vibrant city, it can be a struggle to know where to go and what to do. And really, there is no right answer as to which of these hot clubs and parties you ought to hit. It all depends on your personal taste.

If you haven’t been personally invited to each party, it can be difficulties to actually get in to the events. Do not worry - as Clubbable is the way to the VIP nightlife, you are able to “request” to attend all private events through the Clubbable app.

As well, the queues to the nightclubs can be quite long. By requesting guest list or make a table bookings to all clubs in one go with the Clubbable app, you’ll be certain you’ll have a memorable night out among movie stars and friends!

Here follows a rough guide to the best and most exclusive parties during the Cannes Film Festival 2018 that you are able to request to attend through the Clubbable app, as well as the reasons why you might want to go there..

 

The opening ceremony at Festival de Cannes:

Tuesday 8th of May, from 5pm to 2am, the Opening Ceremony
will be held, hosted by none other than actress Audrey Tautou. Look out for the
red carpet looks, the celebrities walking the city all morning, and the
cocktail parties as the day goes on.

 

Chopard Gents' Night at Hotel Martinez

The annual party will be held at the Hotel Martinez Rooftop
on the evening of the 9th.

 

The Chopard Annual Party at the Carlton Hotel

On the 11th of May, at the Carlton Hotel, this exclusive

Swedish DJ AVICII found dead
20 Apr 2018

Swedish DJ AVICII found dead

Artist, DJ and producer from Sweden Tim Bergling, a.k.a. Avicii, died this afternoon in Oman, according to a statement from his rep. He was 28 years old.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the statement reads. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.  The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

In 2016 he had retired from performing live music saying “I was nervous when I made the announcement, mainly that I would look ungrateful. But I've gotten so many supportive texts from friends in the industry, other DJs, other artists. The fan response has been incredible. And even the press response has been incredible. So yeah, its been a lot better than I expected.”

His health was one of the reasons for his retirement, Avicii had suffered from very public health problems for the past few years, including acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking. After having his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014, he canceled a series of shows in attempt to recover.

Avicii also said “To me it was something I had to do for my health. The scene was not for me. It was not the shows and not the music. It was always the other stuff surrounding it that never came naturally to me. All the other parts of being an artist. I'm more of an introverted person in general.It was always very hard for me. I took on board too much negative energy, I think.”

Tim Bergling was far from healthy but he was trying to enjoy life as it is “I just feel happy. I feel free at this point. Like I have my private life back and focusing on myself for the first time in a long time,” he says. “This was obviously the hardest decision of my life so far. But so far it has paid off tremendously in terms of well-being for me. I'm happier than I have been in a very very long time. Stress-free more than I have been in a very long time. I can't say I'm never going to have a show again. I just don't think I'm going to go back to the touring life.”

He posted the following statement on his website last year:

“WE ALL REACH A POINT IN OUR LIVES AND CAREERS WHERE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO US.

For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.

Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense – the studio.

The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.

Hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I do.”

Tim Bergling was born 8 September 1989 in Stockholm, Sweden. Avicii's publicist Ebba Lindqvist confirmed that he had died at the age of 28.

No Cause of death has yet been announced.


Tim Bergling built a powerful following with his amazing tunes. A talented musician, he was skilled with both digital and traditional musical tools, merging the past and the present into songs that often touched the very soul of his audience.


His tracks focus on the power and intense experiences of being young. For example his famous song "Wake Me Up" is a reply to the typical comment of older generations that "you'll understand when you're older". Avicii called out the hypocrisies of some members of the older generations and flaunted the powerful, progressive, emotional beauty of being young and full of life. His track "Sunshine", for which he and David Guetta won a Grammy, celebrates young love and passion.


Although he has left us far too soon, his memory lives on through his music.

How to dress like a Clubbable man
18 Apr 2018

How to dress like a Clubbable man

We interviewed actor and producer Matthew Fitzthomas Rogers on the topic of how to dress in a clubbable way since Matthew with his swagger was considered the ideal candidate for this due to the circles he socialise in and always dress the part.


  1. So Matthew, I don't think  we have ever seen you without a blazer or some sort of dinner jacket. Do you always wear one and do you have special ones for different occasions?


I never considered my attire to be special, but I am increasingly stopped and engaged in conversation about my style. I consider myself to be someone who dresses properly, which of course is usually smart. I don’t believe in ‘dressing up’, and certainly don’t understand the concept of ‘dressing down’.

Naturally I recognise my style is akin to the halcyon days of Society, and as such have clothing for any occasion, be it a Soiree at home, an afternoon of Polo or a White Tie dinner. I am always prepared, with tie in pocket so that I may attend any establishment of my choosing at a moments notice. After all, some of the finer establishments still have codes of dress.



  1. These pins you have on your jacket look very clubbable. Where are they from?


I have a small collection, they are either purely decorative or represent societies I am a member of, and thus some are more visually interesting than others. I favour an ornate and stately design, but that is a matter of taste and doesn’t speak to the significance of the accessory.


  1. Are there different seasons to your outfits?


I have an inclination to organise my wardrobe in to other scenarios rather than seasons. Scenarios might relate to formality.


  1. Do you ever wear hats?


As above, I like to have the proper attire for a particular purpose. As such, I have a variety of hats with a Top hat being at the more formal end. I rarely wear hats on a day-to-day basis, unless in the South of France where I need the shade.


  1. Scarves you wear quite often right?


Yes, I have a collection of silk scarves and cravats. I also have a larger winter scarf for the icy weather. The former are largely for aesthetic purposes.


  1. What is your favourite type of shoe?


My favourite is a Prince Albert, or a velvet slipper / loafer of some kind. I have a large collection both for indoor and outdoor use, and find them to be most comfortable and attractive. I do of course, like to wear the proper shoe for any given occasion and as such have different footwear for the Opera, Yachting, Riding, County walks, and a variety of handmade leather shoes for more formal occasion.

But I favour a handmade tassel or embroidered loafer while I relax in my withdrawing room.


  1. You don't wear jeans very often do you? What trousers do you wear?


I don’t believe I own any jeans at the moment, although have in the past worn them, especially when I lived in the country. There are other trouser types I feel are suitably hard-wearing. It is rather dull seeing nearly 100% of the population wearing jeans, they are remarkably popular and terribly unimaginative, but they have their purpose, and are of course a practical choice for many situations.

I favour trousers. Proper trousers that could accompany a blazer. With a belt usually, or more formally, with braces. I tend to wear Black or Burgundy, but have a range of trousers for most occasions.


  1. What colours of trousers are trending right now and which colour should one definitely avoid currently?


I am wearing black at the moment, and Burgundy this morning. I believe one should wear what one wants, though I would advise against creating trends out of Society's choices. The red-trouser explosion has become tiresome, which is a shame, as in the 80s they had quite a different impression. I would avoid white in London, unless at an event, purely because the polluted air will make them tarnish rather quickly, and lighter colours are more suited to better weather.


  1. Bow or tie?


I have several of both, suitable for the formality of the occasion. I usually carry a small tie, often a bow tie, so that I may effortlessly be prepared to enter any establishment that might have a code. My most formal is the White bow tie of course. Ties are a personal affair and as such believe people should dress as they wish, although I  would advise against pre-tied options, they are particularly indecorous.


  1. How many buttons do you think are ok to unbutton(on the shirt)?


None for formality, one for post-formal soirees, two for the Riviera. I think it depends on the individual and the occasion, but it is vulgar to display an unnecessary amount of one's body. What is necessary however is  up to the individual and the occasion. There are certain masked balls where little other than the mask is worn!


  1. We know you like the members clubs of course. Which ones do you prefer?


Most clubs that I believe you refer to, I find to be unapologetically targeting the Nouveau Riche, and few proper clubs still exist. I am a member of only a couple but have visited many. The best tend not to promote themselves heavily for fear of becoming like the Red Trouser. There are some beautiful stately clubs that I find most agreeable and private, while others people visit are merely to be seen at. Tramp and Annabell's are usually lots of fun though.


  1. Someone told us that you have on occasion been seen at some of the VIP nightclubs. Which ones are your favourites?


At some point in my life I have been to most in London and many in New York. I tend to avoid the places that shout about their VIP clientele or who classify anyone spending over a certain amount to get a table be a VIP. However, with services like Clubbable I have discovered a way to explore that world that suits me, from the establishments to the company.


Thank you Matthew and good luck with everything!

Horse in nightclub causes shut down

Horse in nightclub causes shut down

UPDATE: Mokai has now reopened at the same adress. Guest list requests and table bookings can be found in the app.

The Miami Herald reports Mokai Lounge, a nightclub in Miami Beach, was shut down Friday after video went viral showing a woman riding a horse onto the dance floor. 
Video posted on social media shows a women wearing only lingerie trying to bring the animal out into the packed Mokai Lounge club on Thursday evening.

The white horse, visibly distressed by the environment, throws the rider off its back and begins to thrash about, prompting some clubbers in the venue to scream in shock.
City Manager Jimmy Morales said he revoked the club's business license Friday, citing a threat to public safety and animal cruelty laws.
"I was disgusted and offended that any legitimate businessperson would think this was an appropriate action to take," Morales told the Herald. "This activity was not permitted, and as soon as we became aware, I immediately instructed staff to act swiftly in remedying this situation."

As Mokai’s shutdown was announced, Mayor Dan Gelber supported Morales’ decision.
“What kind of idiot would do something like this to an animal and endanger people’s lives at that club?” Gelber said during a Friday news conference. “It’s not tolerable, not right, not humane.”
The Mokai Lounge's owner, Roman Jones, told CBS that :
"The horse is not hurt. The marketing director, who arranged the stunt, that I was unaware of, is suspended without pay," Jones said. "I am cooperating with the authorities."

The party took place in his legendary back garden The Iron Sides in Los Angeles.

Attendors of the party were many film industry guests; actors, directors, filmmakers, as well as celebs, models and influencers, many of which friends and business acquaintances to the organizers and host of the party, among others, friends and cast from Troy Duffy’s cult movie Boondock Saints.


Headlining the event was the famous artist, magician and YouTuber JulienMagic, with 1 million Facebook followers and 686k subscribers on YouTube. The event and  JulienMagic’s breathtaking magic performance

During the evening, event organiser and musician Andrew Cole performed the unreleased new song ‘The Offering’ and his famous ‘Colorblind’, with Damien LeRoy, aka, Dj Ammo from Black Eyed Peas on the decks.


We were also honoured with the presence and performance by Marilyn Manson's tour DJ Victoria 'Harry' Harrison, aka Dirty Harry or DJ Amazonica, along with Lifestyle maestro Wade Cresent.


ZOR - The FireBender - gave the guests a fire show performance out of the ordinary when he spinned flaming swords, dragon staffs and ball’n’chains in intricately woven circles of fire while moving in a arts and tribal dance and also moving through the audience swinging his fire gear and doing fire eating. A truly captivating performance by the fire master!


The young celebrity and musical sensation Case Walker with millions on fans worldwide, showed up with his mum to mingle and actually, mostly get fascinated and entertained by prankster JulienMagic as he played with the socializing guests.


Another young rising star whos soulful performance became a fun element during the evening was Elie Samouhi on the electric guitar, playing rock solos while pulling professional guitar hero facial expressions.


The founders of the award winning No Such Agency PR, a branding, marketing, media and PR agency specializing in the fashion, music, media and lifestyle industries, attended the event and had a great time, getting entertained as well as mingling and networking.


Apart from the live stream video sent on JulienMagic’s Instagram, an event video was recorded during the event, which will circulate on different platforms, representing the Clubbable as a VIP nightlife brand, the collaboration with Andrew Cole and the #NoJoke song and movie against bullying, as well as all guests and artists attending the party. The video was produced and shot by Bland Productions, a fresh and innovative video production company active in Los Angeles and Denver.


Clubbable, which is a brand for VIP nightlife with a highly sophisticated app that makes going out VIP more fun, easier, safer and a lot better where you can see what’s on and the rating of both clubs and promoters. With the app, you are also able to invite/get invited to join VIP tables. It is only for the high end crowd so not for everyone. For this VIP invite-only event in Los Angeles, the public were actually also able to attend - by requesting to get on the guest list in the Clubbable app in advance. A few happily chosen got to attend the fabulous celebrity packed party.

Club Rating
23 Jan 2018

Club Rating

How good are the clubs really? How do you actually know what clubs are good or bad?
At Clubbable we are proudly claiming to have the only available reliable and accurate rating of the VIP nightclubs. If you look at any other site who has ratings of any decent nightclub you will pretty much always find a terrible rating since the people who make the effort to create a review are mainly the upset guests who did not get in. In fact these types of ratings have almost gone so far that the lower rating a club has the harder it must be to get in which in turn means it is popular and therefore must be good one might assume. This is not really the case though since it more often reflects how delicately the door lady handles the refusal of guests not deemed clubbable. That is a chapter on its own nicely described by The Telegraph.

The Clubbable club rating on the other hand, is purely based on the feedback from the guests who actually did get in. Also this rating is done by everyone who did use the app to go in, not just the ones who did not like the club or so. This means that our rating truly describes the experience at the club and should be a reliable source of recommendation for anyone planning a night out.

Apart from rating the club, the guests also get to rate the promoter who took them in, which is then used to calculate a average rating of the promoter. The rating of the promoter is visible on every offer you get from the promoters in the app, when you have created a group for going out. Not only does this give you as a guest a good indication of which promoter you decide is worthy of your choice to be the lucky one to take you onto the club, but it also keeps the promoter on his toes to give you the best possible night out, since he or she very much would like to maintain a high score - much like a uber rating. For a serious promoter is having a high rating crucial in order to get their offers selected by the guests.

Let's create the best conditions for VIP clubbing together - by rating clubs and promoters in the Clubbable app, resulting in guaranty for a safe and fabulous VIP nightlife!
Kensington Roof Gardens Closing
04 Jan 2018

Kensington Roof Gardens Closing

Finally the party’s over! Celebrity haunt Kensington Roof Gardens to close after more than 37 years.

For more than 37 years, one of the best known places in London, owned by Kensington Roof Gardens, Virginia said, is a challenging market that has struggled much to profit. For more than 37 years, Roof Gardens highlighted top DJs and live musical talent, as well as a variety of events, parties, awards ceremony, wedding ceremonies and dinner in their award-winning restaurant Babylon. Which is consequently being sold in a £225m deal.

The club had 1.5 acres of beautiful garden on the sixth floor and this is a view that would make you breathe. The building continued as a restaurant and nightclub until 1981, when Sir Richard Branson became the owner and transformed the interior into an amazing event venue, restaurant and private members club.

This Venue was a favourite spot or venue for most of celebrities including Jessica Wright, Jasmin Walia, Daniela Hantuchova, Dominika Cibulkova, Donna Vekic, Maria Sharapova etc as well as local and international tourists also.

On TripAdvisor, where the bar has four stars, the reviews are full of praise.
One reviewer, who was at the bar recently, wrote, “The views and atmosphere at the roof garden are first class.”
Another said, “The Roof Gardens in Kensington is a hidden gem.”

A total of 85 staff will lose their jobs due to closure, which is linked to rising inflation and high business rates. Virgin said its working closely with affected employees to find substitute employment in the group and hospitality industry.

It is a sad moment for us at Clubbable having sent many happy guests to the Kensington Roof Gardens who then rated their night and the venue highly.
The best parties in London on New Years Eve

The best parties in London on New Years Eve

The biggest party night world wide when more Champagne corks than ever are popped is coming up! The London VIP clubs are all having huge NYE celebrations and we at Clubbable are of course listing the most exclusive and sparkling parties and events.

As the VIP clubs and their events are very exclusive and difficult to attend, Clubbable works by listing all VIP clubs, member clubs and private events, which guests then are able to request to attend. You can request to book your own VIP table or to get on the guest list. New years eve is no exception - as the VIP clubs are for the coolest and most attractive audience, you will have to apply to attend. Although, on new years, all clubs demand prepaid tickets at the door. With the Clubbable app, you will request guest list or table booking to a certain club and promoters will send offers to attend as usual (guest list or VIP table) but for new years eve with a ticket price. In some rare cases, promoters do send free entry to groups they like particularly, but if so, please double check that this is actually on offer - so you won’t turn up outside the club on New Years Eve without a required ticket to enter. The best way to celebrate the new year and make sure you won’t have to get crowed with others is to book your own VIP table. By booking it with the Clubbable app you will get table quotes to all VIP clubs in one go with exclusive prices and an availability overview. Let’s sparkle up and pop those Champagne bottles!

DSTRKT closed after stabbing

One of London’s famous VIP clubs: DSTRKT has now been closed down permanently following a knife stabbing on Sunday night. DSTRKT which was located at prime location at Londons iconic Piccadilly Circus has been in the press the recent years for all the wrong reasons. There has been various accusations about perceived racism, argues and complaints. According to rumours there was an argument during an Albanian private party allegedly involving several criminals that led to one person's life got taken during a knife attack.

This video is allegedly showing the stabbing outside DSTRKT.



Our thoughts are with friends and family of the victim and we hope that this will never happen again.We at Clubbable are currently looking into solutions where we can help by providing background checks of the guests. DSTRKT was the venue where Clubbable celebrated our launch of the app in September 2016 so we are very sorry to see the end of this legendary nightclub. We thank Kalin Le for assisting us in making it a great night and of course our headlining performer magician Julien Magic.

Many people get the spelling wrong like DSTRK, DISTRIK/DISTRICT, DESTRIKT. The correct was without vowels and with K.

How to go out VIP
04 Jul 2017

How to go out VIP

With Clubbable the control is moved back to us - the party people. You will yourself create the best conditions for a successful luxury night out VIP clubbing with the Clubbable app - all with a few clicks on your smartphone!

You will be certain how your night will work out when arranged in beforehand with the Clubbable app - you can just enjoy the fun! Usually, to be able to enter exclusive VIP clubs in metropolitan cities like London and party places like Cannes, you either have to book your own VIP drink table by phone or email, or you will need to know a so called ‘promoter’. A promoter is a kind of party planner that have contact with the clubs, and decides who to let in where and when. In many cases, people don't know promoters (especially tourists) and they have no chance in entering VIP clubs. And if you do know a promoter, you will not be able to plan your evening yourself, it will be the promoter that you happen to know that will decide what club you will attend and the arrangements for the night. With Clubbable, the control is moved to you - you have yourself the power for your night out!

The way the app works is that you create a group in the app with your party crew. You pick a date, invite your friends and select which clubs you would consider. Here, you have two options to make; you either request guest list, or book your own VIP drink table. Ladies preferable request guest list and guys book a table. If you book your own VIP table, everything will be arranged for you at your arrival and the service at your table will be magnificence. If requesting the guest list, you will get many offers for that night from all the best promoters in that city. The offers include free entrance to the club, free drinks, often taxi, pre-drink on a nearby bar, queue jump to the club and sometimes dinner. Here, you have the control. You discuss with your party crew in an associated chat in the app what offer you like the most, and after accepting an offer you are also able to discuss the details of the evening with the promoter in the chat. The promoters will not be able to contact you before you actually accept an offer. A new cool feature in the app is the possibility to join a VIP table through the app. People with a VIP table can invite others to join their table, and people on the guest list can request to join a VIP table during the evening. This is a great way to meet new friends and drink lots of Champagne! With the Clubbable app you can in this way yourself arrange the best conditions for a successful luxury night out - all with a few clicks on your smartphone!

Please don't mix this with making VIP clubbing 'easy' to do - it's only for ‘Clubbable’ people - but for us it will be smooth - and as mention, putting the power over the night with us - where and how!

Join VIP Table
31 May 2017

Join VIP Table

We are super excited to announce a new super cool feature which makes nightclubbing in style a lot more fun! It is a new type of offer you can get in the Clubbable app called "Join VIP Table".

If you have created a guest list group for going out you can now also get offers from people who have booked a VIP table for the same day as well as from promoters and club manages like before.

When you get an invite to join a VIP table group you can click on it to view photos of the people in that group of friends. If you find them #clubbable enough and you accept their offer, you can then chat to them and agree on time and place to meet before the club or if you just say a booking name at the door.

Not only does this remove all the waiting and trouble to get in early but you will also be drinking premium drinks at the VIP table with some new friends. This is how to go out in style!

If booking your own VIP table at a nightclub is your style then do so in the app by picking a day, select Request Table Quotes and inviting your friends. You will straight away be getting tailored table quotes to all of the high end nightclubs in town and you can see all the guest list groups who have not yet accepted any of the offers they have received. When entertaining clubbable guest list groups you are responsible for getting them in and being on your best behaviour since they will rate you afterwards. A good rating is key for getting your offers to join accepted in the future so you have to be on your best behaviour.

No doubt this new way of going out will radically improve VIP nightlife forever, as promised..
Have some really good times clubbing the new #clubbable way!
Clubbable launch at Cannes Film Festival
18 May 2017

Clubbable launch at Cannes Film Festival

The 70th Cannes Film Festival has now started! The Clubbable team couldn't be more excited! After almost a year of success in London, Clubbable is hosting an extravagant launch party to show what our brand is really about. An app that helps users discover high-end night life, Clubbable found the perfect opportunity to show Cannes, France, what it means to have a good time. Boasting special guests, models, famous celebrities, and champagne, this launch party is on everyone's list!

The launch party will be held during the Cannes film festival on the 19th of May at our private luxury beach club at prime location on Boulevard la Croisette with a very exclusive guest list. The launch party will be held between 12pm and 6pm at La Gold Plage beach club, branded and run by luxury jewellery brand De Grisogono. This event is for selected guest only - actors, models, influencers, bloggers, celebrities and spenders. It will be a luxurious and exclusive event with music, performances and mingling. The star chef is from Coya Restaurant, so the menu will be amazing! Are You one of us - are You Clubbable? The event will have an exclusive guestlist and restrictive door policy.

All VIP clubs will be listed in the Clubbable app. By requesting guest list to events/clubs, you are able to receive exclusive offers for your night out - like pre-drink, free entrance, free drinks, etc. Table bookings are also done using the app.

During the Film Festival, the clubbing scene is a bit different. Because of the high attendance pressure at the clubs and events during the festival, guest list requests acceptances are very rare. All exclusive celebrity parties during the Film Festival will be listed in the Clubbable app - but have in mind that these events are very exclusive and with expensive tickets - guestlist requests can be done using the app, although, it's extremely rare to be accepted to guestlist for these events. You can buy your way into the celebrity parties, but the tickets are extremely expensive - usually around several of thousands of euros each. A few luckily have actually been offered through the Clubbable app to join Leonardo DiCaprio's Yacht Party - yet tickets are still required. I.e you will have to be VIP to even be able to buy tickets.

Clubbable brand is bringing the luxury to You! Join the fun and celebrate our launch in Cannes on Friday the 19th! Apply for guest list or table booking for the amazing lunch through the app, our different forums (Facebook, Instagram) or email to PR mikaela@clubbable.com.


Top 5 rooftop bars in Shoreditch
01 May 2017

Top 5 rooftop bars in Shoreditch

Shoreditch is still the go to area in London if you want a guaranteed great night out with lots of variety. We’ve spoken with local girl and blogger Stephanie from alexie.co to give us her rundown of the top 5 rooftop bars in Shoreditch.

1) Queen of Hoxton

A firm favourite whether in Summer with it’s playful lawn and lush cocktail menu or the super cool wigwam in the winter, this bar has it all. What makes this venue especially good is the uninterrupted views of the city. Not content with an amazing room terrace they also have a cool club in the basement, a heaven on a cold night.
Top Tip: The roof terrace closes at 10pm and it becomes paid entry only. Make sure you get there early to enjoy the sun and then free access to the rest of the club.

2) Shoreditch House




This is easily the coolest of rooftops in the whole of London with the only heated rooftop pool that I know of. The catch being that you either need to be a member or know someone that is. No easy task and don’t try and blag your way in, the reception just won’t have it. But once you’re in sit back and enjoy the stunning views across London. Make sure you get there early to grab a double bed in the Secret Garden for some rays and people watching.
Top Tip: call in sick and go during the week, the crowd is cooler and you will get more chance of snagging that deluxe bed. Also for a lunchtime nibble you have to try their pizza’s, they are THE best!

3) Golden Bee


Not the most obvious choice as it is tucked away down a side street and with a strict door policy so make sure you get on the guest list. Great for watching the chaos below on commercial road as you sip an ice cold mojito. One of the larger roof top bars so plenty of space to find somewhere to sit and enjoy the night with friends.
Top Tip: make sure to go on a warm night or take a good coat as it backs onto a tall building which obscures the sun after 5pm.

4) Sushi Samba

This rather swanky venue is just a stroll from Liverpool street and has one of the best views of London. Located on the 42nd floor you can just rock up and go for a drink but it can get busy so if you can arrive early. A very glam crowd go here so make sure you dress to impress.
Top Tip: Go all out and enjoy dinner with a view. You have to try the wagyu beef, totally delicious and worth the steep price!

5) The Court House

A new arrival on the Shoreditch Scene and a great addition. This converted police station has bags of character and an amazing view back into the city. The bar has all bases covered with a great cocktail menu so make sure this is on your list.
Top Tip: hit up the barman for whiskey sour, they are amazing!

Meaning of Clubbable
10 Dec 2016

Meaning of Clubbable

The old definition according to the Oxford dictionary is "suitable for membership of a club because of one's sociability or popularity".

Nowadays the term is more often used to describe the suitable clientele of a VIP nightclub with is so much more than simply based on looks.

This meaning of the word goes perfect with what our nightlife brand is all about. Being "clubbable" is so much more than just looks and money. Style, charm, contacts and social skills are also important aspects of a clubbable person.

Recently politicians used the word to describe the British prime minister Theresa May as "not Clubbable" according to articles in The Telegraph and by the BBC.

Spellings such as clubable has also been seen though out history as well as clubabble which are both wrong.

As for pronunciation it is closer to "club bubble" than "club able". In phonetic writing it is: kləbəbəl. 

Make sure to tag your VIP club photos on Instagram with #clubbable and @clubbableapp and we may feature them on the Clubbable Instagram account.
