Things to Do This Weekend in London
Social Fun and Games Club

Sliders is London’s only rooftop curling experience and it has six lanes all complete with glowing neon theme. But that’s not all The Social Fun & Games Club are offering with glass igloo dining dens and a ski-lodge bar thrown in for good measure. Food will be served from the likes of Jimmy’s Lodge and Crazy Pig.
