Nightlife in London

Famous essayist and poet Samuel Johnson once said, “…when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” When we speak of London’s vibrant nightlife the same stands true. The city has innumerable clubs, bars & restaurants to keep everyone engaged till the early hours of the morning. Visiting any of these will not only help you relax and have fun, but also feel the pulse of this unique city.


London can provide you with an unparalleled clubbing experience. Besides, the city boasts of clubs that suit almost everyone’s budget and taste. Do not forget putting on your dancing shoes before heading on to any of these.

Ministry of Sound

This was set up way back in 1991. Ministry of Sound has a huge dance floor and an equally powerful sound system. The DJs will ensure that you dance to their rhythm till the wee hours of the morning. They frequently organize themed parties and shows to keep the revelers engaged.


Cable is located inside the Bermondsey Street tunnel, but don’t let its location deter you from visiting the club. It has two dance floors and remains open nearly 24 hours a day.

Proud Camden

This is one of the favorite night spots for many. The club uses a painstakingly restored 200 year old building as its venue.

Bars, Cafés & Restaurants

London is called the cocktail capital of the world. To taste a glass of cocktail you may head towards any of the renowned bars of the city like Artesian Bar in Regent Street, Happiness Forgets in Hoxton Square or Nightjar in the Old Street. Connaught Bar at Mayfair is another chic place to visit. On the other hand, if you may prefer venues that are slightly offbeat in character you will find the following ones most interesting.

Callooh Callay

Enter Callooh Callay through a wardrobe like doorway and you literally step into a new world. Many people consider this to be the best cocktail bar of Shoreditch. The atmosphere of the lounge is relaxed and the menu keeps on being updated.


The ambience, the accessories, costumes of the staff and the crockery bring back the memories of a bygone era. A visit to Barts will feel like a dream once the sun rises and you return to your room.

Back In 5 Minutes

Back In 5 Minutes is hidden behind a retail outlet at the Brick Lane. Diners will enjoy both the taste of the food and the intimate setting of this restaurant.

Live Music

A night’s outing in London is never complete without visiting its many concerts or music venues. Places like Brixton Academy, Scala, The Forum, The O2 and Ronnie Scott’s are great places to unwind with the sound of soulful music. Royal Albert Hall continues to host major shows almost every week.


For the literary minded a visit to The Book Club in Shoreditch is a must. You may take a sip from a glass of champagne while turning over the pages of your favorite book. Many museums like National Portrait Gallery, Tate Modern, V&A etc. remain open late on a specific date each week.

Hey There

I’m Jessica Caylyn from London. Gosh, it’s already feels like I’m at an Anonym Alcoholics meeting! Anyways, I live in Camden Town, because that’s the one place in London, where you can find all the parties, life and joy, and Music. This is really important, because Music is my L.I.F.E.! We’ve arrived to our main topic already, as I’m planning to write my blog on the topic of music. I couldn’t really write on any other topic, but this is the one thing, of which I know about, a lot! I’m 20 years old, and I moved here 2 years ago, at the age of 18 (I did the math for you 😉 ). Yes, I’ve decided not to go to college, but rather enjoy life and do what I like to do. I work at a music shop part time, but nowadays all the music is online, so I can’t really earn a lot with that, I just love the atmosphere there, and that I can listen to whatever I want, during the day. I also got a part time job at a radio station, which is really awesome. So, the good thing is that I can listen to pop music and other kind of ‘radio music’ in the morning and I can enjoy the classics, rock and the alternative music in the afternoon. After work I can listen to the young talents on the Camden’s street, and after dinner I play the guitar in my little, comfy apartment. That’s my life. Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

I know that usually people in the first post only write a little introduction about themselves, but I’d also like to start spreading my music, I hope you don’t mind. The thing is that most of the people only get their ‘music education’ from the radio, but there is so much more good music, or better music! As I live in Camden for a reason, the first music aims to convey the Camden feeling to you! It is one of the songs from the famous collection of ‘SoundsYouNeed’. There is no better feeling, than going home after a hard day at work, listening to this music. Enjoy!

Although, it is not very Camden Like, so let me introduce you to one of our street performers as well. Sorry for the bad quality. Street music is much underrated!

I have to go now, my guitar misses me, I can hear her crying!
