Different/quirky birthday treats in London (with alcohol!)

We have a family meet up in London later in the year for seven females ranging from 20-75. We don't see each other often and I wanted to book us something to do together in the afternoon. We will all be wanting a few wines while together. I'm hoping to avoid the obvious things like afternoon tea in the shard. I've had a quick look and quite like something along the lines of a theme bar or I've seen somewhere that does axe throwing 😁
Can anyone recommend something central London that would only take a few hours at most but be really good fun? The 75 year old is probably the most game of us all so doesn't have to be tame!

Not cheap, but the War of the Worlds immersive experience? They have a bar in the entrance/exit and one in 'the interval'. You need to commit to the story to get the most out of it, I really enjoyed it.

What about Puttshack or Flight Club?

this is definitely a querky experience.
there are mystery trails to follow and work out, all at your own pace with bars to just chill out and drink in and eat in.
The actors are brilliant.

This looks perfect but is closed on a Monday when we are going Sad

Thank you so much for all the suggestions so far.

Could visit Alcotraz if you like a cocktail, it's a very silly and fun experience.

NotEnoughTime · 28/06/2023 21:40 looks great fun. We did similar in Belfast a few years ago and had a blast.

Pop up painting or Prosecco & Paint?

A London guided pub walk?

Swim in the Serpentine?

Great minds think alike QueenOfWeeds 🙌
