GO Clubbing In London

Clubbing in Greater London London is a Mecca to thousands of clubbers who travel from throughout the UK and further a field to experience the funkiest and coolest venues in the capital.

From retro groovers to alternative rockers, whatever your taste and however you want to party, you’ll find a wealth of great places available. Your best dance moves are too good to be kept cooped up in your bedroom and it's time to unleash them on the London scene.

Renowned for its great mix of club nights Camden Palace [map], North West London, is one of the top venues in London. Located in an old theatre on the high street this club plays good loud music accompanied by a mesmerising light show.

For those in need of a quirky alternative, Camden’s Electric Ballroom [map] is a part time market, live music venue and club night host all under one roof. The Ballroom has two main nights, Sin City every Friday for those who like black leather and rubber with their alternative music and Shake every Saturday for those who would rather don their afro wigs and get down to some funky disco or booty shake to R ‘n’ B and Garage.

Voted one of the five friendliest clubs in London the Rhythm Factory [map] in East London offers the killer combination of somewhere to unwind after a hard day with an alluring dance floor or three, one of which is bound to have you up and dancing if you have the energy.

Over in the South East, brethren from far and wide gather to worship at the infamous Ministry of Sound [map], Gaunt Street, SE1. This is where some of the world’s very best DJs do their thing and is a great place for celebrity spotting. This club might have been around a long time but it’s still the place to be seen and the standard of music just keeps getting better and better. You can even hire it if you want to party with a few hundred of your best friends.

If your energy levels are low Imbibe [map], Blackfriars Road, Southwark, SE1, is ideal for those wanting to stay out late but needing a comfy sofa on hand to fall into when the evening draws to a close. With an ambient and chilled out crowd this place should appeal to the alternative crowd and seasoned clubbers who simply need a rest.

Those visiting South West London should make a date at The Fridge [map], Town Hall Parade, SW2, which is all about pure house. So if you like to groove in a classy environment choose from nights with names such as Knowhere, Blast, and Free Formation.

Central London is awash with excellent clubs populated by the great, good and downright funky. Check out the popular Cargo [map], Rivington Street, EC2. Just three years old and this club sets the standard that many clubs in London try to emulate. Cargo has music, dance and food in abundance and offers jazz, hip hop, funk and soul.

Fabric [map] is another of those legendary London venues, but this one has been on the go for years. Fabric continues to live up to its reputation and offers punters a great range of top acts and new DJs as well as established favourites such as Ali B and Andrew Weatherall.

If you’re into big nights full of glamour it’s time to experience Heaven [map], the famous gay nightclub. Located at Under The Arches, Villiers Street, WC2, for some excellent diva house and superstar DJs including John Digweed and Andy Almighty who hosts the flagship Saturday night Heaven party.

Get your glad rags on and hop over to the West End where the locals choose to party. Get bang up to date on all the latest chart hits and commercial dance with a visit to Oceana [map], Clarence Street, KT1. This venue has five huge bars, two nightclubs and a restaurant. Music varies from dance to R’n’B, hip hop, disco and pop. Also expect to see some superstar DJs hit the decks during the summer and winter months.

If indie’s your bag, check out Deathdisco [map], at Notting Hill Gate, where Alan McGee and Danny Watson serve up some cool alternative tunes. Previous guest DJs include Courtney Love – lead singer of Hole and the late Kurt Cobain’s missus – Tim Burgess of The Charlatans’ fame, The Datsuns, and Mercury Rev.
