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.
