About London, England Nightlife
Just as in life, when it comes to nightlife, London has everything that you could ever imagine and more. From big brash multi floor night clubs, to old style pubs, and everything in between. There's something to suit every taste, fashion and fad. If you like dressing up then there are themed evenings covering every historical period from the twenties to the eighties. Festivals abound in every park and square in the summer months, and for the winter, the big factory style clubs like Ministry of Sound and Fabric bring house, techno and electronica and some of the best DJs in the world pumping straight through your body. Each part of London has its own clubs, pubs and devotees, many tourists tend to stay in the West End but even the City, Hackney, Brixton and South bank of the river offer some great places to party. The West of London, Chelsea, Notting Hill and Park Lane, as well as a few places in Marylebone and the West End cater for the posh end of the market; here bumping in to a title or a minor member of the royal family is not uncommon, along with Premiership footballers and rich city boys and girls. Things change fast on the club and pub scene, so check out local guides and websites, like Resident Advisor or the BBC Radio 1 website for the latest rota on the big name clubs. Time Out is great for listings by the week and is published on a Wednesday for when you hit town. The Guardian too has a listings guide on a Saturday if you want to keep in the know.
