2. Night Life
The London night scene caters to all tastes, be it comedy, theater or music, there will always be a place to party all night long. London is known to be expensive – especially in the evening. If you want to hit a bar, our advice is to ignore the overpriced drinking joints around the city of Westminster and head to fashionable places like Soho, Camden, Brick Lane and Brixton.
You will not need to look very hard to find a bar in these areas:
Finding the right club for your party is not difficult as long as you know what you’re looking for, whether it’s drum-n-bass, techno, hip-hop, house or jazz. Each neighborhood has a slightly different vibe, but this should help you get started. The clubs in London range from the very VIP to the jeans-and-sweatshirt where the attitude is minimal. While some clubs are strictly on one type of music, to others, you will find that each night of the week will be devoted to a different theme, so again, check with the local Time Out, before hitting the clubs.
For example, jazz aficionados would look no further than the famous Ronnie Scott in Soho, while rock aficionados would likely consider Hammersmith Apollo and Classical fans at the Royal Albert Hall. However, what makes London unique is a large number of venues that hold concerts on a daily or weekly basis.
