Where do I go out at night in London?
I’ve had some readers asking me this and requested if I can advice about the best clubs in London. Sure thing! These 4 clubs are the best ones if you are in to the entire Jetset Babe thing, but be aware; they are all private members clubs. Forget promoters, guest lists, knowing someone by the door and all that crap.
To get access in here you strictly need to be a member or you accompany a member.
There are no exceptions.
I’m not a member of any of these clubs, but I always go there with a member or if a member who will be there “sign me in”. Quite a hassle, but totally worth it as in there you meet the creme de la creme, and a few wannabes too of course 😉
5 Hertford street / LouLou’s
2-5 Hertford Street, Mayfair, London W1J 7RB – http://5hertfordstreet.co.uk
LouLou’s also known as ‘5 Hertford Street’
is the absolute place to be in London right now. Since this place is the newest kid on the block, it has the highest hype compared to the other clubs I will mention. Getting membership here is extremely difficult, and many people that are “somebodies” in the London scene are still waiting (the waiting list is loooong).
Functioning as a restaurant / bar it has also a small dance floor but people mingle more than party St Tropez style. The crowd here is very upscale, many socialites, celebrities, politicians etc. You will not find the usual Louboutin + Herve Leger kinda girls, dress code is more elegant, sophisticated and average age is above 30.If you get in here, god bless & enjoy!
40 Dover Street Mayfair London W1S 4NP – http://www.theartsclub.co.uk
Art’s club is an elegant venue in the heart of Mayfair,
located on Dover street next to Ritz hotel. 3 levels containing a restaurant, bar and in the basement they have a small club where a live band is playing, but again you won’t see any champagne showers – this place is just above that.
The crowd here is very mixed, business men, fashionistas, socialites, celebs etc, but yet again strict members only policy. If you are a member and do not have a booking for a table you can only bring 2 friends otherwise there is always a minimum spend of god knows how much.
I love Art’s club a lot, as it’s beautiful and perfect as mid week outing or if you want to go somewhere before you hit a heavier place. But if you are out to people watch & like to hear what other people say (not too loud volume) then you could spend your entire night here (unless you hit the basement, there you will see some people dancing).
44 Berkeley Square, London, W1J 5QB – www.annabels.co.uk
Annabel’s is one of the oldest private members clubs,
and is famous for having an older crowd. Mind you, I still love this place as you still get a mix of age and it’s all very sophisticated. If you are a smoker you will enjoy their smoking area as it’s easy to mingle or if you wish to dance, they have a dance floor down stairs.
Other wise the place works like every private members club with a restaurant and bar / lounge area. The best night according to me is Thursday night, but any other day would work to depending what mood you are in.
40 Jermyn St, London SW1Y 6DN – www.tramp.co.uk
Tramp is a proper club if you want a big night out,
loads of dancing & to let your hair down. They have a restaurant, but overall this is a club from beginning to end & they are famous for their saturday nights (best night of the week, be prepared, it’s messy, crowded but absolutely fantastic!)
The crowd here is wealthy, a lot of arabs, indians, russians & in general international people. Champagne bottles will be flowing, girls will be running around in their Louboutins & some people who just don’t give a fuck will be smoking indoors (hahaha I do that, I’m sorry). A fun place and the only private members club with a really high pulse.
These clubs are my absolute favorites in London, It’s the only ones I go to in fact. There are others worth checking out in London that may be easier to get in to like: Shoreditch House, The Box, Maddox, Cuckoo, Morton’s club etc.
