    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

    The Defectors Weld - Pub | Restaurant in London.

    Party Earth Review The mismatch of quirky but stylish décor and a diverse music selection is mirrored by the range of clientele who frequent The Defectors Weld, a cozy, clean pub in Shepherd’s Bush. Background music scarcely penetrates the buzz of conversation in the early evening, as yummy mummies laden with bags debrief after a spree at ... more

  • Bar / Gay Club

    Candy Bar - Bar | Gay Club in London.

    Party Earth Review Launched in 1996 – and revamped in 2011 after being taken over by gay bar magnate Gary Henshaw – Candy Bar is a buzzing, late-night destination for the double-X chromosome set. And a few dudes, depending on the night. Considerably less pink than its original incarnation, this simple, three-level venue ... more

    Whisky Mist - Club | Lounge in London.

    Party Earth Review With its velvet ropes, snazzy door staff, and line of chic patrons, it’s hard to miss the entrance to Whisky Mist, a premier London lounge and club located just off to the side of Park Lane’s Hilton Hotel. The sleek and shiny interior – done up in deep onyx punctuated by flashes of light, a decadent gold and glass bar ... more

  • Restaurant / Tapas Bar

    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

  • Pub

    The Court - Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review The name would imply a place most dedicated students would hope to never find themselves, but The Court draws in a lively young crowd of regulars thanks to the venue’s proximity to the main dorms of the University of London. Daytime hours see the big group tables crammed with students taking a break from brain-busting midterms ... 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.
