Sliders, 17 Queensway, London, W2; from Wed 8 Nov; various times; from £12.50 per person in four-person or eight-person teams

‘Tis the season to get cool, as the famous Olympic sport curling takes centre stage this winter. From the people behind The Social Fun & Games Club and Rooftop Film Club, Queensway bowling and ice skating destination QUEENS brings you Sliders.

Tipped to become London’s coolest trend, the city’s first on-real-ice social curling experience will be sure to bowl everyone over as it slides into Queensway. Team up with friends, family and foes and compete against each other at central London’s only permanent all-year-round ice rink.

At QUEENS, Sliders features eight real ice, freshly marked curling lanes, alongside a super-cool soundtrack and the cosy Curling Cafe, where players can warm up with hot chocolate before their time on the ice. The game is simple yet addictive—as the WLL editors can confirm!—and relaxed yet intense, and will guarantee to get you hooked. Moreover, it costs from only £12.50 per person in a team of 4 or 8, which includes curling, grips, drinks service and a welcome drink to warm-up.

After the game, refuel at cult food fave MEATliquor or have a few drinks at the strikingly revamped bar. Bowling’s wonderfully weird winter cousin is here—slide on over and have a go!
