Bars & clubs Nightlife

Shoreditch House

The East-End wing of Soho House is perhaps most famous for its rooftop pool and string of celebrity members but it's much more than that.

XOYO

A lot of thought’s gone into this long-awaited part club, part live event space addition to Shoreditch’s scene, livening up the nightlife with big-name line-ups and live bands.

Hoxton Pony

Where posh folks flock when they want a stylised taste of the edgy Shoreditchian scene, designer guest DJs and cocktails in teacups.

Punk

Anarchy that doesn’t take itself at all seriously draws a blend of pretty fashionistas, media darlings and arty types in trainers.

Fabric

No longer a mainstay of the gay clubbing scene but this massive superclub continues to attract the best DJs and a vibrating floor that’ll get you going.

Momo’s & Kemia

Shisha pipes and shady nights. Chill out on low slung ottomans amongst oversized cushions in the dim, lantern-lit space below the main restaurant.

Vortex

Contemporary jazz den. There’s a new generation of jazz musicians afoot - and they’ve been hanging out at Vortex.

Sketch

Like living inside a Faberge egg. Continuing to pull in the style crowd who love Mourad Mazouz’s slightly OTT vision.

Milk & Honey

Secret speakeasy behind the black door where this modern speakeasy is all dim lighting, dark booths and superbly mixed cocktails.

The Queen of Hoxton

A little something for everyone. Like a youth club for an adult generation of Eastenders, this Queen graciously reigns from her recently overhauled venue.

Ronnie Scott’s

The line up is always varied and exciting, the atmosphere as dimly lit and smoky as you’d hope, and the crowd a mix of old-time reverends and newbie followers.

Proud Camden

One of London’s finest live music venues, there’s isn’t a horse in the world that wouldn’t drink if led here - and the same goes for us two-legged creatures.

Bungalow 8

Paparazzi paradise. Located in the swanky St Martins Lane hotel and, on a good night, the glitzy sister to New York’s slick site can be a really fun dance-a-thon.

Barrio North

A Hispanic-style houseparty… in Islington? And it’s helped along by the copious amounts of colourful cocktails available in this slicked up Hispanic ghetto.

Artesian

A languorous drink in David Collins-designed interiors, surrounded by chinois-style butterflies, lavender loveseats and pocket posies of pastel roses?

The Hospital

For the slick not the sick. Whoever said media types were humourless w*nkers had clearly never been to this multi-faceted centre split over five levels.
