(Probably) The Six Best Things To Do In Hereford This Weekend

To paraphrase the great Aaliyah: "It's been a long time, we shouldn't have left you, without a dope What's On Hotlist to step to."

So in lieue of our comprehensive What's On listings (soon to be relaunched), here's a quick guide to what's happening this weekend.

In no particular order...


Déjà Vu cocktail takeover @ The Den

The skinny: The cocktail wizard/ ‘mixologist’ behind Déjà Vu knocks up the kind of mind-blowing drinks you, ironically, won’t have seen before.

When: Saturday, from 6pm (book  a table at The Den).

Order: Anything, but the Tiramisu would be an indulgent way to reward yourself for 26 days of Dry January.

Vegan street food and funk music @ The Firefly


The skinny: Good vibes + dirty-in-a-good-way drinking food + a funked-up live DJ set that Jesus/Nile Rogers would dance to.

When: Sat, from 9pm (street food served all evening).

Order: Pulled jackfruit burgers if you like American-style BBQ, Bang Bang Broccoli if you’re good with the hot stuff.

More here.


Brew22 @ The Barrels

The skinny: Soulful seven-piece play The World’s Best Pub.

When: Friday, from 8pm.

Order: HPA, always.

More here.


Heineken Comedy Club @ The Courtyard


The skinny: This now curry-less comedy club is still as raucous as ever and this week features a comedian called Olaf Falafel. (Also Alex Smith and Robin Morgan, but their names are more bank manager-y).

When: Friday, from 8pm.

Order: Pitchers of beer for the table – you don’t want to be the one getting up for a round in the middle of a comedian’s set.

More here.


Reggae Pie/Rooftop house music double-header @ The Left Bank

The skinny: Two bars, two vastly different BPMs. Jim Snowzell (Phuture Phonic) soundtracks the re-opened roofbar, while the Reggae Pie crew bring their soundsystem to the underground speakeasy.

When: Saturday, from 9pm.

Order: Lucky Buddha beers downstairs, vodka tonic with a twist if you’re roof-topping.

More here. And here.


Thugwidow @ the speakeasy


The skinny: Thugwidow may have the kind of name that makes introductions with mother-in-laws a touch awkward, but the Kudatah/Ruff Cutz DJ can pump out some serious Jungle. With support from local star JakeBob.

When: Friday, from 9pm

Order: Anything you’re not going to spill when the basement club gets a bit hectic.
