    Founders Arms - Bar | Restaurant in London.

    Party Earth Review Sandwiched between Blackfriars Bridge and The Tate Modern Gallery, the Founders Arms is hardly a work of art, but the venue’s stellar views make up for the lack of architectural character. Many patrons choose to sit on the wide terrace directly by the water, looking out at St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge, and ... more

    Barrica - Restaurant | Tapas Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review Though Barrica’s location leaves it competing with several top Italian restaurants and high-end steakhouses on the surrounding blocks, this authentic tapas joint stays packed for lunch and dinner throughout the week. Going out for tapas – that well-loved Spanish tradition of noshing on small plates of ... more

    Gordon's Wine Bar - Historic Bar | Restaurant | Wine Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review Situated on a busy street just minutes from Trafalgar Square, Gordon’s Wine Bar is said to be one of the oldest wine bars in the world and a former haunt of luminaries like Rudyard Kipling and Sir Laurence Olivier. Despite its historic prestige and old-timey feel, the wine-only bar remains popular among young vino connoisseurs ... more

    Pillars of Hercules - Historic Bar | Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Although named after a Greek demigod and located on Greek Street, Pillars of Hercules is a pure English pub – a quiet place for a pint without the bells and whistles or musclemen seeking to slay the nine-headed Hydra. The site of a tavern since the 1700s, the venue has a good bit of history hidden inside its ... more

    The Goose - Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Down squiggling North End Road and the no man’s land between Kensington and Fulham lies The Goose, a haunt for aging regulars, budgeted drinkers, and a boat-load of soccer fans on game days. The venue appears bright and airy at first glance, with potted plants flanking both sides of the cream corner building ... more

    Bar Italia - Café | Historic Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review Even though Soho is no longer the Little Italy it used to be, Bar Italia maintains its reputation as central London’s epicenter of the Italian social and coffee scene. Before there was Red Bull and vodka, there was grappa and espresso, and Bar Italia is sticking to it! Founded, and still run, by an Italian family from ... more

As a major city, there are myriad bars and clubs in London, but both day and night, it’s the pubs that truly set the stage for London’s infamous drinking culture, and range in size and vibe from friendly neighborhood meeting places to bigger and rowdier commercial establishments.

Besides the pubs, the booming nightlife takes place at hundreds of low-key or lively bars, trendy lounges, and vibrant dance clubs. Those in the mood for a night of luxurious revelry have a bevy of posh venues to choose from, many frequented by A-list celebrities and the occasional royal – though access to this elite scene can be difficult as it’s generally reserved for the wealthy, fashionable, and privileged.

Luckily, the city is also host to plenty of more accessible and equally fantastic dance clubs where DJs keep the floors thumping until 7am. With hip-hop, techno, and house music, these all-night super-clubs beckon ravers and revelers the world over to enjoy pulsating beats, mega sound systems, and famous DJs.

Partiers who crave an edgier hipster scene will find it in the East End where artsy types congregate in a variety of unique bars and clubs that cater to their trendy lifestyle.
