Deciding what is the best London club, is a debate that has been going on for years. There are numerous VIP clubs to choose from, as well vast deciding factors. A number of clubbing enthusiasts (including me) have choices of their own, and the reasons behind the choice. What you will be reading here is not a direct suggestion of what would be the club that will merit your award of the best club in London, but instead a in-depth look at the London clubbing scene. This will in turn help you decide for yourself what would be the best party place in London is. I will be listing the most visited clubs in the London scene, the information for them, and this in turn will give you the missing piece to crown London’s top club.
Our first stop will be Kensington Roof Gardens, one of London’s hottest clubs. One of the few venues with a rooftop open club, the ambiance in this prime spot is unlike any other regular spot out there. The garden setting perfectly fits the view of this amazing venue. A different affluent of stars and celebrities have partied here at Roof Gardens. Tennis super nova Maria Sharapova, Musical genius Lemar, and even the Royalty herself, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has already set foot on this majestic venue. The dress code is strictly dress to impress, and expect to pay around £8 per drink – which is not too much given the location of this upscale venue.
The next venue on the list will be Cirque Le Soir. This quirky twist for a club is a hit with all clubbing enthusiasts. The theme of this hotspot is Circus (from which the place is named after). The visitors are required to dress according to the theme / occasion or to dress with something fancy, like a costume. This twist immediately sets the bar for the rest of your visit here at this venue – quirky, fun, spontaneous, and crazy! Expect to spend a little more than average here at Cirque Le Soir, but the money is well worth it. Celebrities like Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kanye West, and the Kardashians frequent this hip and glamorous venue.
Café de Paris on the other hand provides unparalleled entertainment in the clubbing industry. Burlesque shows and go-go dancers are mainstays here in Café de Paris. Cocktails are cheap for an average £18 for one, and the flavors are truly amazing. Everyone is expected to dress glamorously as Celebrities are frequently on the floor. Lady Gaga, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Nicole Rithcie are amongst the big names who frequents events and parties in this fabulous place.
One must be reminded that there are a lot of things to remember before even trying to plan a night out in London. Always bring your ID for age verification because some clubs are really strict about the age limit. Always dress to impress as well, you never know who you are going to meet, and it makes you more glamorous looking for the staff. Let’s get it out of the table, some club staff are rude, and we don’t want any bad blood with them. Also remember that there is a minimum spend on the table reservation, usually pegged at £500 per table. Also note that for the upscale clubs, guestlist booking is mandatory, especially for the guys. Ladies can come in free at clubs before 10:30 PM, but they have to get in line afterwards – on the other hand, guys have to pay the entrance of £10 – £20 all night long.
Some clubs open up until midnight only, but other clubs can go as long as 4:00 AM. Most clubs have events on Fridays and on the weekends, where you get to meet the mix of people in that particular area. Almost always on the weekends, the clubs are full to the brim, so an advance guestlist reservation is a must, unless you want to risk and just wait in line for the entrance all day long.
We here at London Night Guide provide free guestlist reservations for guests, and hope you find a good venue to book with. All of the information you need is right here, and our group of clubbing enthusiasts will be more than happy to help you out.
