Perfectly named for it’s many impressive theatre’s and popular stage shows, this area is absolutely packed with nightlife venues. The West End offers popular areas likeCovent Garden, Soho, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus.
Covent Garden is home to the infamous indoor market, but also sports a variety of beautiful set out bars that are great if your bride to be is looking to splash the cash If you want a truly new experience, Blame Gloria is a gorgeous bar that’s sure to make a few jaws drop, and great for those Instagram pics. For a touch of class in a relaxed atmosphere, Mabel’s Bar is a great shout – plus they have tasty food plates too!
Probably one of the more popular areas for going out, Soho absolutely lights up at night with a buzzing atmosphere through all the streets. For something a little quirky, head over to Bar Soho and experience their carnival themed bar with a fruit cocktail to keep you refreshed. Two words – Cocktails and desserts. Need we say more? For the ultimate combo for your tipsy gang, head to Basement State and enjoy the low lights and cosy vibes.
Guaranteed to match the vibe that your inevitably feeling, Piccadilly Circus is alive and ready to welcome celebrations all year round. A bar that is known for being “the party bar” is Rumba, hosting themed nights and comedy shows at different times to keep you entertained. Have a boogie there before heading round the most unique club around, Piccadilly Institute. With tons of themed rooms and it’s very own cocktail list, who can say no?
Sometimes it’s nice to stray out of the centre of London and into a totally new area, and Shoreditch has a lot to offer new comers! For a more relaxed atmosphere, there’s bars like the hugely popular Old Street Records cocktail bar, packed with records that creates a music lovers dream! For something quirky and a little different, you’ll find Callooh Callay just down the road (might want to write that name down girls)! To end your night, hit the dancefloor at The Lighthouse nightclub!
City of London
If you’re planning to go in the week (or all week), the area of Bank is the way to go as the pinnacle of after work partying. Work hard and play hard around Bank area, which features popular bars like the always edgy Forge Bar, similar to Core nightclub if you want a complete night in quirky looking venues.
Last but by no means the least, Tower Hall is our final suggestion for somewhere to head for a hen party in the capital. If you’ve not been to this section of the city before, it’s a nice break away from absolutely packed venues while still boasting a party vibe wherever you head into.
For a memorable surprise that your bride to be will surely love, the CloudM bar up the Tower of London is a must. A one of a kind experience, views don’t get much better than when you’re sipping on a tasty cocktail up the tower of London! With London themed décor that heavy features Queen Liz herself, it’s a new experience for all.
Other honourable mentions around Tower Hall include The Minories, a traditional pub that was built under the railway arches of the Miniories themselves to give you a venue you no other. For a pint-drinking, pub game playing bride to be, there’s no better place to visit.
