    Evans & Peel Detective Agency - Speakeasy in London.

    Party Earth Review Whether the speakeasy trend is genius or just a tired gimmick, few could deny that the Prohibition spirit is in full force at Evans & Peel Detective Agency, a subterranean haunt where a 20s-era vibe is in effect 100% of the time. Once buzzed through the nondescript door, would-be guests enter a fake detective ... more

    Carom at Meza - Bar | Indian Restaurant in London.

    Party Earth Review With curry fast replacing fish and chips as the UK’s national dish, London’s Indian food scene is becoming trendy and even gourmet, a fact that is very evident at Soho hotspot Carom at Meza. Although it’s only a few minutes’ walk from Leicester Square, the venue transports guests into the ... more

    Fifth Floor Bar - Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review For those who can afford to drop £900 on an Alexander McQueen clutch or a Vivienne Westwood frock, the opulent Fifth Floor Bar at upscale department store Harvey Nichols offers a chance to toast their pricey purchases with equally extravagant champagne.

    Bar Italia - Café | Historic Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review Even though Soho is no longer the Little Italy it used to be, Bar Italia maintains its reputation as central London’s epicenter of the Italian social and coffee scene. Before there was Red Bull and vodka, there was grappa and espresso, and Bar Italia is sticking to it! Founded, and still run, by an Italian family from ... more

    Graphic - Art Gallery | Gin Bar in London.

    Party Earth Review It’s hard to tell which “graphic” Graphic is referring to when patrons first enter this too-cool-for-school gin bar on Golden Square. Ever-rotating art makes the distinction difficult. Perhaps it’s the shop shutters mounted inside, each painted in vibrant letters in stark contrast to the minimalist ... 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.
