    The Dog and Duck - Historic Bar | Pub in London.

    Party Earth Review Cozy boozer The Dog and Duck appears to have changed little since its 18th-century beginnings, and serves as a budget-friendly destination in this traditionally wallet-shredding part of town. The pub isn’t exactly off the tourist radar, so visitors can expect to find lots of out-of-towners once they cram into ... 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.

    Two Floors - Cocktail Bar | Tiki Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review Tucked behind the famed Liberty shopping center, Kingly Street can feel far removed from the bustling thoroughfare of Regent Street –the perfect setting to hide Two Floors, a bar with a distinctly split personality.

    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

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.
