IF you’re like most, then trying to figure out the best spots to hit at night in London can be challenging.
There is so much to do and see, it’s sometimes hard to know where to start.
With this in mind, we have put together our list of some of the best nightlife spots in the capital.
From clubs to historic pubs, here are some suggestions of venues that we think you will love.
Fabric is one of the most popular night clubs in not just London, but perhaps the world. Erected on the site of a former Victorian meat cellar, the club has built its reputation on having excellent music rather than paying for superstar spinners. Whether you party on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, this is a club where you want to stay late as the best acts don’t hit the stage until around 3 a.m.
Play at the Hippodrome, Leicester Square
The Hippodrome Casino in just a short time has established itself as the premier casino in London. With four floors of gaming, this casino offers something for every type of gambler. In addition, PokerStars has taken up residency and opened up a 24-hour poker room with games available for most any bankroll. Whether you play poker, blackjack, or like to feed the slots, you can do so in a luxurious setting and in a casino voted as the 2013 Casino of the Year by Totally Gaming Awards.
There are plenty of bars in London that offer fantastic views of the city but Paramount on New Oxford St is simply the best around. Once you hit the lift to the 32nd floor, you will see that copper bar in center of the room that is simply magnificent. It is almost as impressive as the views from 385 feet in the air. Go up one more floor to the Viewing Gallery and Bar and these views become 360 degrees.
Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street
This pub is more for those that love history as it is set in a Fleet Street landmark. Rebuild in 1667, the history behind this establishment is part of its charm. With it’s labyrinth of rooms, exploration of this historic building is half the fun. While the food and drink are pretty much standard as any other pub, the charm of this place is at least worth a visit. Find it at 145 Fleet Street.
Beaufort Bar at The Savoy, The Strand
If you are looking for a bar to impress your date at, you can’t do much better than the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy. The decor is Art Deco and the bar occupies an old cabaret stage that used to be hosts to stars such as Frank Sinatra and George Gerschwin. The drinks are equally as glam with beverages served in long-stemmed crystal glasses to give guests the feeling of being movie stars. There is also nightly entertainment, which makes this great for drinks and entertainment.
