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 Located behind the shimmering streets of Soho’s theatrical playground, Market Place is a down-to-earth drinking and dining den with the rustic allure of a retro wood tavern. The front terrace lunging onto the boulevards of Market Place quadrant provides space for groups of wide-eyed backpackers to bask in the old-world ... more

Bar / Members Club
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 Slightly removed from Dalston’s gritty heart, The Shacklewell Arms is a casual pub, music venue, gallery, and cozy beer garden rolled into one unapologetically grimy bun. And they have hot dogs! With something on the docket most nights, the venue draws music lovers off the beaten track to sling drinks that won’t break ... more

Club / Live Music Venue
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 Zoo Bar’s motto is “party hard or go home,” and the flirty patrons apparently take that advice to heart. Flashing colored lights illuminate sizzling dance floors jumping with commercial house, R&B, and 80s pop, creating a vibrant party scene for the energetic, outgoing crowd of college types and travelers. The enormous ... more

Party Earth Review Having catered to nobility, distinguished political figures, lavish industry tycoons, and pop stars over its ninety-year history, Café de Paris still retains much of its cachet.

Party Earth Review Located right off of Covent Garden Piazza, Los Locos is a vibrant late-night venue that offers all the fun of a London nightclub without the red tape and hassle. A traditional menu of Mexican food is served in the restaurant until 11pm, but after that the place turns into a wild club where easygoing young patrons strut ... 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

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.
