Party Earth Review True to its name, the trendy Electricity Showrooms is indeed set in an old electricity showroom where, in the 1920s, people went to find the latest in domestic appliances. Although the selection of toasters, vacuums, and gramophones has been replaced by beer, cocktails, and pub food, the venue’s bright theatrical style ... more

Party Earth Review Like Alice in Through the Looking Glass, visitors to Miss Q’s need only follow an unassuming underground path to discover a world of pool tables and rock and roll as far removed from the straitlaced affluence of Earls Court as America is from England. Folded napkins, rigid posture, and aristocratic elocution take a backseat ... more

Party Earth Review Though the scene at Bar Rumba may change every night, one of the biggest sound systems in the West End means that the focus is always on the party. A narrow staircase leads guests into a basic and slightly murky black-box basement space where the dimly-lit atmosphere is a curious mix of rowdy bar and full-blown nightclub ... more

Party Earth Review Standing on the doorstep of London’s inner city and marked by larger-than-life gargoyles, Beach Blanket Babylon is a lush and glossy cocktail lounge popular with a fashionably forward crowd. Heavy glass doors give way to a spacious room whose centerpiece is a square island bar where liquor bottles arranged on a light box ... more

Party Earth Review A nightclub institution in London, Cargo is a live music and DJ venue that has remained at the clubbing forefront since its inception more than a decade ago. Situated under three railway arches on Rivington Street, the club is designed to evoke a sparse cargo hold where light brown floor-to-ceiling bricks create a surprisingly ... more

Party Earth Review A century ago, supper clubs were high-class social destinations for the elegant partier, with nightly entertainment that involved five-star food, live shows, and bottle upon bottle of bubbly. If London’s Supperclub is any indication, they still offer all those things, albeit with a decidedly 21st-century – and unapologetically ... more

Party Earth Review Not to be confused with the famous nightclub that played a central role in Britain’s punk movement, The Roxy on Rathbone Place is much more – though not entirely – about glam pop and rowdy college revelry. The most student-oriented nights are earlier in the week, especially during Wednesday’s official student night, which ... more

Party Earth Review Slightly removed from Dalston’s gritty heart, The Shacklewell Arms is a casual pub, music venue, gallery, and cozy beer garden rolled into one unapologetically grimy bun.

Sure, it’s known internationally for its pubs, but clubs in London make sure the party goes long into the foggy night all across town.
The city offers a booming nightlife, from ultra-exclusive nightclubs that cater only to the prettiest and wealthiest denizens to vibrant and pretension-free dance clubs where the only point is to let loose and have a great time.
Anyone in the mood for a night of luxury has a bevy of posh venues and members clubs to choose from, many frequented by A-list celebrities and the occasional royal – though access to these London clubs can obviously be akin to breaking into a bank vault.
But there are still plenty of fantastic dance clubs where DJs keep the floors thumping until 7am. It doesn’t matter what style of music London clubbers are looking for, the city’s nightclubs are home to hip-hop, techno, house music, and every style imaginable.
Blues clubs and jazz clubs are plentiful too, especially in the hipster-heavy East End where artsy types congregate in a variety of unique clubs that cater to their trendy lifestyle.
Mega-clubs such as Ministry of Sound, Fabric, and Heaven are some of the best known London clubs, but smaller and more intimate clubs in London are as easy to find as another plate of fish and chips.
