Over two million people are expected to watch Prince William say ‘cheerio!’ to bachelorhood April 29 when he weds longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton. But whether you’re weeping into your wine glass, ruing your bad luck, or simply in the mood for a piss-up with some British individuals, here’s where you can do so during the royal wedding in Los Angeles. FYI: for those of you who are sad Wills will no longer be single, cheer up – Harry’s still available. Pip, pip, hoorah! Now that is a cause for celebration.  — Laura Schreffler

April 28th: 10pm – 4:30am

If you want to find out how the Brits living in LA feel about Kate filling Diana’s shoes, head to the Brits in LA pajama party at the Cat & Fiddle. There will be a raffle, British pub grub (you may need to bring your own snacks as English edibles can be pretty near inedible) drink, drink and more drink. Tiaras are welcome.

One up, Cat & Fiddle! If you’re heading to this British pub in Woodland Hills, you’ll be expected to wear formal wedding attire. No shirts, no shoes, no Stella Artois, hear me? But if you do make the prompt midnight viewing on time, you’ll receive flowers, cake, champagne and a pin that reads, “I attended the royal wedding at the White Harte Pub.” A close second to attending the royal wedding itself, I’d say. Maybe.


The Fox and Hounds

April 28th: Starting at 9pm

Because Prince William probably had a boring old stag ‘do (that’s Brit-speak for ‘bachelor party’) hunting quail or something, you need to have a raucous party in his honor. This bad behavior includes dancers, a rock band, cigars and lots and lots of booze. After feting William’s last remaining hours of singledom, celebrate his marriage at 11 a.m. the following morning with cake and champagne. Don’t worry about being tardy to the party – the ceremony will be playing on repeat all day long.

Breakfast: 9am ($12.95)
Tea: noon and 2pm ($18.95)
Beatles tribute band 8pm

The Ye Olde King’s Head owners are smart cookies, alright. They’re not going to do their celebrating until Will has actually put a ring on it – and only then shall their be partying! A classic Brit fry-up (think sausage, beans and tomato) with a complimentary glass of champagne starts the day off, followed by two afternoon teas and a Beatles tribute band to cap the evening. Sing it with me now! “All you need is love, love…”

April 28th: 7:30pm – 11pm

If you want to find a party that’s fit for a future king and queen, you might want to check out the private rooftop supper club at the Petite Ermitage Hotel. You must dress up like your favorite royal (I call 85-year-old Queen Elizabeth II!) at this stand-up dinner party, which includes ‘savory’ English bunker boxes and a special screening of Fred Astaire’s ‘Royal Wedding.’ Sadly, although it might seem like a good place to find them, Kate and Wills will not be stopping by. RSVP to

The British & Dominion Social Club

12882 Valley View Road, Ste. 10 – 14
Garden Grove CA 92845
(714) 313-9665
More Info

The Club was formed in 1963 by a group of British and Irish ex-patriots who wanted to create a forum for the traditional British Pub style of socializing and a home away from home. They’ll be showing the Royal Wedding starting at 3AM. Club entry is $10 or purchase a champagne breakfast for $25 which also includes a souvenir of the event. Either way you’ll be entered into a draw for your chance to win a replica of Princess Diana’s ring.
