When the sun sets over the horizon and the night dawns, the folk of London move to the streets in search of excitement and fun. Home to a culture for the night, London is one of the favored nightlife spots in the world.
Being honest with ourselves for a moment, we can visit only so many museums, art galleries or exhibitions, or take the dog for so many leisurely walks around Richmond Park before we become very thirsty. As luck would have it, the quality and variety of London after dark is comparable to its more refined daytime cultural offerings.
The National Portrait Gallery in Trafalgar Square is mere walking distance from the clubbing three storey Mecca at Heaven, and so there are sights and spots for persons of all entertainment persuasions, lurking around every corner, as it were.
Themes or Club Nights are popular in London Clubs, and descriptions can be found online, on the U.K. Clubbing Directory for the hundreds of different themes available in the city on a given night. A good example of a club night is the Notting Hill Arts Club whose club nights include Beachclub, billed as “A Smorgasbord of London Creativity & drunken Scandinavian snow urchins” with cheap beer, mulled wine, pretty ladies, great bands, DJs, art, and meatballs every second Monday of the Month. Other club nights include Disco Death, and Craft Night.
A distinguished and elegant bed and breakfast, the Lincoln House Hotel is perfectly situated close to popular attractions and within walking distance of gay and lesbian night life, it offers surprisingly low rates and, of course, features the ubiquitous wireless internet access so necessary to modern life. Rooms are equipped with a mini fridge and unlimited coffee and tea, ensuring perfect comfort for couples looking for a romantic getaway in the heart of London.
For an international, slightly underground feel, head to Favela Chic, a bar/restaurant/club that loves to blur the boundaries and has much coveted free entry between 6pm and 1am. This laid back venue treads the line between Shoreditch cool, Sao Paolo exoticism and Parisian chic serving drinks and food to a cosmopolitan crowd. Highlights include Carnival night with Caipirinhas made from premium Cachaca and ‘Viva le France’: a French themed night that aims to make French rock relevant again.
If that is all too pretentious for you then I would suggest a party club in London that should provide more of a friendly and fun atmosphere for you. There are heaps of clubs in London offering up the party experience and these often have drinkonomical prices so the bonus of cheap drinks! How about Club Aquarium in Old Street that boasts a swimming pool and pop music, an enticing combination!
Torture Garden Halloween ball will take place on the 30th of October. An admirable collection of things can be found with the body art feature, Bondage and latex organized in Debut London. This is going to be one of the most happening nights of Halloween’s eve. Do not miss it if you want to enter the world of horrors.
My next recommendation for a student night in London is a place called Infernos. This is the ultimate cheese fest that will take you back to your student union days. I almost felt like I was stood right bang in the middle of the union dance floor singing to Baywatch! I would recommend going with a big group of friends, so is perfect for fresher week bonding or just getting your new friends together and rock out to pop music classics! It is located on Clapham High Street but is well worth the trip south.
