Party Earth Review The heart of the early 90s rave scene still beats with fury at Egg, a converted warehouse with three stories of dance floors, a reverence for skilled DJs, and a twenty-four-hour license that can keep the spin worship going well after sunrise.

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.
