    Filthy MacNasty's Whiskey Café - Bar | Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Known as much for its whiskey selection as for its motley crew of devoted customers, Filthy MacNasty’s enjoys a certain local mystique and projects an artsy charm. With a low-key style all its own, the small, dark pub is decidedly scruffy, eschewing the typical rich wood paneling of other English pubs in favor of walls ... more

    The Toucan - Irish Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Despite bearing the name of a South American bird, The Toucan is a treasured Soho dive that serves as a testament to all things Guinness. Entering the venue is like stepping into a cozy, cave-like shrine, with walls plastered with old-timey adverts that anyone who’s ever visited Dublin’s Guinness museum ... more

    The Cadogan Arms - Gastropub | Pool Hall in London.

    Party Earth Review Fine dining, afternoon drinking, and a cheeky game of pool make for a leisurely afternoon or a joyous early evening romp at The Cadogan Arms. Definitely not a place for raging parties, the airy venue serves as a relaxed break – or escape – from the bank-breaking boutiques that line King’s Road. The expansive front room ... more

    Candy Bar - Bar | Gay Club in London.

    Party Earth Review Launched in 1996 – and revamped in 2011 after being taken over by gay bar magnate Gary Henshaw – Candy Bar is a buzzing, late-night destination for the double-X chromosome set. And a few dudes, depending on the night. Considerably less pink than its original incarnation, this simple, three-level venue ... more

    Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese - Historic Bar | Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese had already been a London landmark for more than a hundred years when the Great Fire of 1666 destroyed it – and much of the city. Rebuilt shortly after, the pub saw famous scribes like Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle become regulars over the years, and today’s pint- and history-loving ... more

    Founders Arms - Bar | Restaurant in London.

    Party Earth Review Sandwiched between Blackfriars Bridge and The Tate Modern Gallery, the Founders Arms is hardly a work of art, but the venue’s stellar views make up for the lack of architectural character. Many patrons choose to sit on the wide terrace directly by the water, looking out at St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge, and ... more

As a major city, there are myriad bars and clubs in London, but both day and night, it’s the pubs that truly set the stage for London’s infamous drinking culture, and range in size and vibe from friendly neighborhood meeting places to bigger and rowdier commercial establishments.

Besides the pubs, the booming nightlife takes place at hundreds of low-key or lively bars, trendy lounges, and vibrant dance clubs. Those in the mood for a night of luxurious revelry have a bevy of posh venues to choose from, many frequented by A-list celebrities and the occasional royal – though access to this elite scene can be difficult as it’s generally reserved for the wealthy, fashionable, and privileged.

Luckily, the city is also host to plenty of more accessible and equally fantastic dance clubs where DJs keep the floors thumping until 7am. With hip-hop, techno, and house music, these all-night super-clubs beckon ravers and revelers the world over to enjoy pulsating beats, mega sound systems, and famous DJs.

Partiers who crave an edgier hipster scene will find it in the East End where artsy types congregate in a variety of unique bars and clubs that cater to their trendy lifestyle.
