London Tipple: The Skint Student

As promised, The London Tipple series reveals London’s best drinking spots, whatever your situation. This time we are considering the ‘Skint Student.’ A relatable one for many. If you’re going to procrastinate and take a study break, you might as well do it well. Here’s where to go without losing too many coins.

Catch the tube to Shoreditch High Street Station, Old Street Station or even Liverpool Street Station and wander down the high street to The Shoreditch.

Do not miss out on some great drink offers – 4 Piston Heads for £10 or 2 cocktails for £10 everyday, 2pm – 8pm. Try a Red Brazilian filled with raspberries, lime wedges and more. Or get that Gin drink if you’re a gin lover, the Gin Garden might be the one for you.

A place dedicated to sharing the love for craft beer and all things it stands for. This bar takes pride in the fact “a lot of love gets poured into craft beer.” “Simple and unhampered.”

Depending on your mood, depending on the day and if you’re wanting to be indulgent on a “school night”, £2 for the first 100 pints on “Tank Tuesdays”, a pint or a pizza £10 on “T.A.P. 10 Wednesdays”, bottled and canned beers £4 on “Craft Thursdays” and “Don’t worry be hoppy on Hoppy Fridays” is the deal. What a way to fill your schedule!

You can visit patch on Carter Lane opposite St Paul’s Cathedral and experience it’s one off nature in one of London’s most famous places. Patch has re – launched itself as an “uber cool” Shoreditch themed cocktail bar and club and even has The Garden Room. With these long, lighter beautiful evenings in London appearing why not enjoy and make the most of every minute here. Why wait for the weekend? Live in the moment.

Happy Hour is 4pm – 7pm Monday to Friday, a big 50% off all house spirits including bottles. Even more reason not to miss this.

A large bar and events space in King’s Cross. We must mention the roof terrace, undoubtedly, a roof terrace is the ultimate place to chill out in the British Spring and Summer time, right?

Craft drink menu, yummy food, DJs every Friday and Saturday until 3am. This sounds like the ideal location to go wild at the weekend.

Every Thursday night Big Chill has #TBT with Neil Barrett, where throwback music takes over. All the old school classics you might almost have forgotten are played with the resident DJ’s personal take on the 80s, 90s and Motown and Rock ‘n’ Roll bringing flashbacks to the past from 7pm.
