Nightlife in London

London nightlife has it all, from star-studded West End theatre to opera in Covent Garden, from decadent cocktail bars like Loungelover in Hoxton to traditional pubs everywhere. Hit the dancefloor at world-famous nightclubs like Fabric or sample 24-hour London in action-packed Soho. Choose high design or old-world charm, glitz or grunge, as the mood takes you. Everywhere is now smoke-free. Most pubs close at 11pm, bars often open until 2pm, many clubs until 6am.
