Party Earth Review It’s hard to miss the clash of orange chandeliers, red leather seats, and purple walls at Verve, a mod bar and club with a big dash of 70s panache. Located in the heart of Covent Garden, this venue is always buzzing with an ever-changing mix of friendly after-work types and wandering tourists lured in by all the activity ... more

Three rooms make up this grungy basement bar, which is owned and run by Real Gold, a DJ-founded creative collective that also ... more

Party Earth Review Most iconic figures are immortalized in statues, but for King of Cool Steve McQueen, nothing short of an entire entertainment complex would do. An embodiment of the late movie star’s own style and passions, McQueen is a masculine, modern, and sleek venue that attracts an affluent clientele of corporate ladder climbers and ... more

Party Earth Review An inconspicuous door adorned with a small plaque of Nightjar’s namesake bird is the only evidence of the stellar live music that awaits in this vintage-themed basement hideout – an ironic notion considering the nightjar’s call sounds like a fan belt slowly stripping off an air compressor. A swanky homage to early 20th ... more

Party Earth Review The unassuming and easy-to-miss Walton Street entrance may not promise much, but what lies behind it is Eclipse, a posh lounge and perennial hotspot that consistently attracts some of London’s hippest clubbers. A bongo player jamming by the bar and the cool beats of funky house music contribute to a lively atmosphere, while ... 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

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. Bars on every floor help lubricate the movers and shakers, allowing them to grab ... more

Party Earth Review As the name implies, Roadhouse is a recreated highway truck stop whose bright neon sign adds unexpected flair to London’s historical Covent Garden square. The rough roadside vibe is carried on inside, where the décor consists of a Mack truck crashing through one wall, a Harley Davidson on the bar, and road signs and trucker ... more

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

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.
