The heatwave might be over, but we're making summer last just a little longer with a huge beach party at one of London's biggest and best night spots, Scala in Kings Cross. This is also the venue for our iconic Sports Night, so if you're planning on joining a sports team, you'll want to know your way around all three rooms. 

We're going for a beach vibe decor with a bunch of pool inflatables, so feel free to accessorise accordingly - this is the ultimate photo opp. Expect non-stop summer anthems all night long from our special guest DJ!

Event runs from 22:00 - 01:00

Venue: 275 Pentonville Road, London N1 9NL
Nearest Station:  Kings Cross
Dress code: Casual / Beach / Pool Theme
