Kick back with heady cocktails or attend gigs by trance artists, here’s a list of hottest must-attend parties and performances

The Big Bombay Pub Crawl

Brace yourself for an evening of cocktails as you bar hop through seven pubs: the names are kept secret. You can also pick from two routes. If you enjoy sticking to your whisky or vodka, go for the Drinking Stiff. If something more experimental floats your boat, sign up for the Tricks and Mix. We suspect it won’t matter by the end of the night.
