Leaves are starting to fall at our feet and summer sunshine is quickly fading. The chill is coming so it’s time to accept that autumn is here, but let’s not let that dampen our party spirits! To help you make the most of October we got in touch with DesignMyNight.com for their top 5 events – and it’s not one for hibernating! Splurge on a new season dress or two and check out these hedonistic happenings. London - Food Noir ‘Temptation’ Food Noir are celebrating their 3rd anniversary this year. It goes without saying they’re doing everything with serene style. The event will be held in one of London’s most decadent boutique hotels, The Gore. Get your shopping face on and buy a glitzy outfit as the dress code is nothing but glamourous. The night will consist of elegant cuisine, fabulous performances and hand crafted cocktails. 2 London - Burlesque in Underland: Scary Tales Halloween tends to bring out the inner child in you that you never knew existed. This year why not channel that innocence and take on one of your favourite fairytale characters for a slice of midweek madness. It’s a burlesque party not to be missed in one of the slickest cocktail bars around, The Looking Glass Cocktail Club. 3 London - For Your Eyes Only For Your Eyes Only will truly be an unforgettable experience. The event aims to bring the world of James Bond to life ahead of the premiere in October. It will be held in Library, a private members club in Covent Garden. After a martini reception you will be escorted to the restaurant where you can piece together the man behind S.P.E.C.T.R.E. Dress code is smart attire but why not show up in a dazzling gown and show your potential as the next Bond girl. 4 London - Live: Launch Night Feat: ‘Nina Nesbitt’ Nina Nesbitt is performing at The Roof Gardens this October and the night is guaranteed to be a sell-out event. She’s supporting artists like Ella Eyre and John Newman in the coming months and if you haven’t heard her voice, be prepared to fall in love. Between the unique venue and Nina’s angelic voice the night is sure to whisk you away from your everyday worries to a temporary paradise. 6 Glasgow - Glasgow Gin Club Gin is used in many all-time favourite cocktails but this October Glasgow Gin Club will treat your palates to the much loved gin and tonic. 4 premium mixes will be prepared for you and your girlfriends at a lock down price of £12.
