Party Earth Review A staple of the Shoreditch nightlife scene, 333 Motherbar is two venues in one – the spacious 333 club, which hosts raucous electro, breaks, house, and hip-hop nights, and its oddball sidekick Motherbar. A cheerful little space, Motherbar consists of two intimate rooms separated by an archway and features black and white ... more

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

Party Earth Review The Phoenix Artist Club is kind of like a high school theater club, if that club was located in the basement of a West End theater, served lots of booze, and was populated by the Who’s Who of London’s established and aspiring theater scene. Tucked around the corner from The Phoenix Theatre is a wide staircase ... more

Party Earth Review An ultra-trendy Scottish bar, lounge, and club, Albannach lures in passersby from Trafalgar Square with its hip urban décor and modern glass exterior. Deer antler chandeliers and male staff members in sharp black kilts give a nod to the Scottish ambiance without going over the top, while a scattering of silver couches and ... more

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 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 Minimal space, nightly DJs and a crowd united by a common interest in the latest live indie music make The Social the most aptly named bar in the city despite its out-of-the-way location on a rather deserted street near Oxford Circus. Guests may feel a bit dubious about the club’s possibilities as they walk down a long ... 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.
