Party at 100 Wardour Street
Swanky just doesn’t cut it when talking of legendary London venue, 100 Wardour Street. Sitting right in the middle of Soho, the iconic venue is the perfect spot for some lush brunching or some fantastically bangin’ after party vibes. And thats exactly what we are looking forward to on Friday 13th October when special guest BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw takes the decks for Soho After Dark, their Friday late night party. Nick Grimshaw will hit the decks from 12:30am followed by ALR LIVE who will rock the stage right through to 3am.
Before the night kicks off, guests can enjoy dining to the sounds of live band Headline. Sip classic cocktails, devour tasty dishes and then dance Friday night away in the heart of Soho.
Date: Friday 13 October 2017
HEADLINE band from 10pm
Nick Grimshaw from 12:30am
ALR LIVE from 01:30am
Event Ends: 03:00

The name HIPCHIPS reminds us of a certain song from the 70s by The Sugar Hill Gang, but does the restaurant have the similar makings of a cult classic? We would like to think so. The concept is pretty easy to digest, as if the food itself. Walk (or saunter, if that’s your fancy) in, chose the highly recommendable box of chips and dips and scoff down.
For autumn the restaurant are taking things up a notch and guests can revel in the comforting warmth of autumnal flavours, think, crisp apple, sticky toffee, pumpkin spice and all things nice – basically Halloween in crisp form.
Handcrafted heritage crisps dusted with sweet cinnamon will feature alongside a range of dips from toffee apple and chocolate peanut butter pie to a cider caramel whip and a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough dip.
If you are as excited as we were reading this, then, well…oh you know what to do. The address is: HIPCHIPS, 49 Old Compton St, Soho, London W1D 6HL, open Mon – Thurs 12-10pm, Fri – Sat 12 – 11pm, Sun 12 – 8pm, www.hipchips.com
