A New Thursday night at The Social.


We are happy to announce that The Social is home to a brand new weekly club night. Fans of our long-running mutant techno night Bugged Out! will really be able to let their hair down and party at Bugged Out’s Little Bugger.

Noted for their roaming festival dance stages, and for changing the face of pub raves forever, Bugged Out’s Little Bugger has found a regular haunt at Central London’s famed institution The Social.

Their New Years Day parties have become the stuff of legend and they’ve taken this pop spirit to festivals mixing classic Bugged Out tunes with house party pop and R&B. This is what Little Bugger is all about – join us after work to start the weekend early.

Helping Little Bugger will be residents Lemmy Ashton and Johnno, with special guests making unannounced appearances in the award-winning London landmark.


And as if this wasn’t enough, the first 200 people to arrive will receive a Little Buggers membership card! It will entitle the holder to free entry to Bugged Out’s Little Bugger at The Social every week! It also gives the holder 2–4-1 on beers and cocktails at the bar!

Every Thursday from May 11!
