7 Places To Go In London After Midnight

Celebrate the arrival of the night tube with these twilight venues

Most Popular

The Tube in London will be doing an all nighter, so there's no more excuses. 

No leaving a party at 11.26pm and no getting in a cab with your drunken friends stopping seven times to find fags, a dirty kebab and a cash point.

Now London is accessible to all outside Zone 4 post midnight, here's what you should do to celebrate.

1 | Sing at Lucky Voice, Soho

When the pubs shut, this is where swarms of people flock for booze, warmth and a rendition of 'Hey Jude'. Whether you can actually sing or not is of course not the point: there is something wonderful about belting out a 'classic' in front equally inebriated friends.

2 | Grab a milkshake at Tinseltown, Farringdon

Feeling the heat today? 🌞 We've got the perfect thing to cool you down... 😉 #TinseltownTasty

Open until 4am, Tinseltown is the best place to carry on the late night chatter over milkshake. From the Oreo's Go Nuts, containing Oreo cookies, peanut butter and ice cream to the Chocolate Bar Shakes, which are made with actual chocolate bars, your sweet tooth is guaranteed to be doing a crazy merry dance in your mouth.

Remember the time you had a mad one at Fabric? With clock watching off the agenda, it's that time again. With three floors playing the latest cutting-edge house, techno, electro, disco, dub-techno 'choons', who needs a gym workout. Especially after you have been for a couple of milkshakes at the nearby Tinseltown.

Forget everything else on the late night menu, it's all about the legendary eggs. If you decide to order something else, make sure you add eggs on the side. Poached.

Balans Café, 34 Old Compton Street, London W1D 4TS

5 | Eat a whole roasted chicken at Duck and Waffle

If you fancy a low key post midnight soirée filled with wonderful food, Duck and Waffle situated on the 40th floor of 110 Bishopsgate will get the conversation going. From whole roasted chicken, freshly baked breads and BBQ-spiced crispy pigs ears to start, you'll be there all night. Lucky, as it's open 24/7

Duck and Waffle, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY

6 | Party at Dogstar, Brixton

Depending on what night you show up, you could be dancing to anything from 80s hiphop to reggae to dancehall. Or all three. It doesn't really matter: Dogstar is possibly the most relaxed place in London. Expect no dress code and prepare to have a fun evening.

Dogstar, 389 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, SW9 8LQ

7 | Drink cocktails at Experimental Cocktail Club, Chinatown

As you approach this fine establishment you think you're at the wrong place. A battered old door leads you to a basement bar where cocktails in test tubes combined with a wonderful atmosphere will see your evening pass by in a blink of an eye. You can book via email, or chance it on the night.

Experimental Cocktail Club, 12A Gerrard Street, London, W1D 5PS
