After dark, London pulsates with stylish bars, underground clubs, traditional pubs and some of Europe’s most prominent super-clubs. Out west, the perennially cool Notting Hill/Ladbroke Grove area still draws the crowds, while Old Street and Shoreditch in the east offer a hip alternative to town.
Many local areas, such as Camden and Angel in the north, Brixton and Clapham in the south, have great pubs and bars and a character all of their own.
Café de Paris
Café de Paris is one of those places that you have to visit at least once, just to say you have been there, and to enjoy the extraordinary baroque decor. Everyone from Madonna, Vivienne Westwood and the Spice Girls has held a major party here, along with GQ and MTV. It’s absolutely vast (with a capacity of 700 people) and has three separate bars in addition to the mezzanine and main dance floor. Despite the glitz, the problem with Café de Paris is that for mere mortals the experience can be less than stellar. Yes, everything is opulent and over the top, and there is live music on Friday nights.
Ministry of Sound
It is the home of dance music. Established in 1991, it has grown from a nightclub in London to becoming the world’s biggest dance brand. Ministry of Sound is a versatile and adaptable venue complete with 5 interior spaces perfect for all event requirements form receptions and banqueting to Awards ceremonies, conferencing and of course club nights.
It’s one of the few spaces in London which can offer an innovative and electrifying event experience with and award winning sound and lighting system coming as standard.
The O2, visually typeset in branding as The O₂, is a large entertainment district on the Greenwich peninsula in South East London, England, including an indoor arena, a music club, a Cine world cinema, an exhibition space, pizzas, bars and restaurants.
