Party Earth Review Once an historic theater, Koko is a domed behemoth of a club and live music venue that lures hordes of Camden’s hippest youth with its neon sign, brightly lit façade, and swarms of people awaiting entry by the ticket booth. It’s a striking contradiction for such an extravagant venue to be located in an area that prides ... more

Party Earth Review Proud Camden couples the flair of a contemporary art gallery with the pulsing rhythm of a dedicated concert space, leaving slack-jawed tourists and artsy Camden Towners to wonder how a one-time horse hospital could be transformed into such a vibrant cultural gathering place.

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 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.

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.
