Party Earth Review Considering the cocktail bar, underground club, retro arcade, and innovative roof top, it’s clear that Queen of Hoxton is no typical East End boozer’s den. Midweek the long concrete bar on the ground floor plays host to many artsy Shoreditchians, their woven fedoras tipped so they can read the cocktail specials on the ... more

Party Earth Review Sophisticated, sexy, and sleek, Aquum is a modern bar, restaurant, and club whose elegant décor is the perfect blend of French boudoir and futuristic lounge, where stark white leather booths and bar stools, white walls, chiffon curtains, and mood lighting create an otherworldly ambiance.

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
36 Shaftesbury Avenue
London, W1D 7EP
Party Earth Review A barren and understated garage bar sporting little more than cement walls and chipped wooden benches, the aptly-named Concrete is nonetheless a happening hotspot where a thriving and unrestrained party culture flourishes. A split entrance leads adventure-chasing buddies either upstairs to a pizzeria or below ground to ... more

Club / Cuban Bar
Party Earth Review For a taste of Cuba in London, patrons need look no further than Fiesta Havana, a place where Hemingway himself might have been a regular when he was homesick for Havana. Well, twenty-something Hemingway, anyway. The venue is awash in warm, tropical colors, fake stone patterns, and kitschy fake plants, as well as walls ... more

Art Gallery / Club
Party Earth Review A grand wooden door marks the entrance to Notting Hill Arts Club, where guests descend into the deep shadows of the basement to find shape-shifting light illuminating the canvas-like walls, the exuberant art exhibits, and the creative crowd, who are as much a part of the display as the art itself. A circular bar and funky ... more

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.
