  • zoo bar in the west end good well crowded on saturday nights also crescent bar good one or two awkward doormen there though might turn you away good music there though
  • Sorry keeping this to myself - club tourism kills our local clubs! (try Ministry of Sound(Elephant, SW)! Out-of-towners will love it - they still have a great sound system.
  • barfly
  • Hombres off Oxford Street. Play great RnB but not the best place for going on the pull. Go with a group of friends for a laugh. Oh and pop into the pub nextdoor before going into the club, its got a kind of 'gothy' theme and sell cocktails/shots in test tubes!
  • Gossips in Meard Street for trashy and goth types. No shortage of flyers around the streets at night.
  • Capital club! Woah memories! Small but good atmosphere!
  • 333 Old Street - thye don't care
  • the 12 bar club (off charing cross road) is a great place to spend an evening - they have live jazz/blues kind of music every night (not sure about sundays) and they're open till 1am...this is my favourite place to go out in london :) be warned - it's not a place to take large groups of people because it's tiny (about 40-50 people max) but that's one of the reasons it's so marvellous...lovely atmosphere, nice beer, good vodka and the music is fab :)
  • bagleys at the film studios is a good night out.legends in old burlington street is however by far the best night out in central london
