Party Animals
Midday is the new midnight
Move over Berghain; Berlin might have been the place for day parties up until now, but a new wave of London clubs are starting in daylight and finishing by 10pm. It looks like midday is becoming a reasonable time to get the party started.

Just a year after they submitted their license with a 10pm curfew (to plenty of double takes), Printworks’ day parties regularly sell out in a few hours and it seems the 5,000 capacity mega-venue have started something. They’ve just released details of their Issue 002 season, and opened up a new balcony – go explore.

The Hydra’s new, stripped-back In Stereo series focuses on artists at the heart of alternative club culture. Their single-room set up (no clashes) hosts Theo Parrish, Daphni, Moodymann and Carl Craig, and they’re calling it a night at midnight, so you better be ready to party mid-afternoon.

And even Phonox – who are known for their all-nighters – are getting involved in these daytime affairs. Daniel Avery will do a mammoth ten hour set there next month – and instead of extending it to 6am the next morning, Phonox will open the doors mid-afternoon.

Fashionably late might have had its day. See you at lunchtime.
Hoppers St Christopher's Place
It's bigger, it's better, and there are bookings
If like us (and everyone else), you’ve been obsessed by Hoppers’ Sri Lankan pancake bowls since their first site opened, you’ll rejoice at the news that there’s a new Hoppers in town. But here’s some even more exciting news – you can skip the queues that so often form outside the Soho site and book.

The Weekend
It’s weekend time! Start things off right with a Friday night discovering Argentinian wine in a virtual vineyard, mix great art, hip hop and soul food at the Tate, and then round things off in the best way possible – with tequila and mezcal.

Lauren Baker Gallery
The burgeoning artist has a new home
She’s just been cited by the Tate as a name to know, done installations at the V&A and curated the windows of Selfridges – and now Lauren Baker has just opened a new eponymous gallery in the heart of Covent Garden. The queen of neon is here and one to watch.

Carine Roitfeld
Ahead of her highly anticipated ‘SEVEN’ event as part of Veuve Clicquot’s Widow Series, we sat down to find out a bit more about the inimitable Carine Roitfeld.
What was the last exhibition you went to?
The Christian Dior exhibition at Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. It was fantastic to see so many archive pieces brought together under one roof, a true retrospective delight.

Where do you go when you want to celebrate in London?
I love China Tang at the Dorchester hotel, the perfect place for a party!

All-time favourite restaurant in London?
I love to start the night with a glass of champagne at The Ritz, followed by dinner at Annabel’s, it’s chic and decadent. You also can’t beat the chicken curry at the Connaught, it’s my guilty pleasure.

Tell us the one thing you can't live without right now:
I really treasure spending as much time as possible with my granddaughter.

What's inspiring you currently?
Sports! I don’t think you expected that answer from me, but it’s true.

The Haunted Hotel at Pikes
Our Ibiza favourite does Halloween
If there’s one thing that Pikes knows how to do, it’s throw a good party. So this year, forget LDN’s ghoulish gatherings, and head to Ibiza on the 31st for a night at the Pikes Haunted Hotel – featuring Rooms of Doom and a Return To the Garden Of Death. They’ve assured us this isn’t one for the faint-hearted. We say book three nights from the 30 Oct-2nd Nov and make it a great Autumn break.

Need a flight there? Surf Air are offering UJ readers a private jet to Ibiza for the exclusive rate of €775 each way until Nov 30. Interested? Click here.
