Central London, London –
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 space is spread out over two floors, including an upstairs bar area with a kitschy décor of cracked-mirror mosaics, twinkling lights, and gold accents as well as several TVs reserved for match days.
The spacious downstairs club features scattered chrome poles and podiums which help encourage some naughtier dancing, as well as some quieter sitting rooms and bars in the back for guests in need of a breather or perhaps a little privacy.
For those who appreciate a slightly retro vibe and enjoy dressing up to bop to pop hits, this London hotspot rarely disappoints and promises a great time any night of the week.
College students and young travelers, early to mid-20s.
Music varies by room and includes 80s, pop, commercial house, and R&B.
