London is a place where you can, if you want, go to a new place everytime you wanna go out. Meaning in three years you can avoid going to the same place twice. However, this is not the case for me. Every night of the week have a perfect night time adventure and there is something for everyone's taste. Monday nights, Cheers in Central is packed with tourists, cheep drinks and fun dancing music, Tuesdays perfect for going to Bayswater for a pint and a movie (my favourite theatre at Whitley's due to fairly cheep tickets and never sold out, Wednesdays spent at the Cuban in Camden Town. Cosy and fun little Cuban restaurant in the middle of the makret and you get the feel of Camden without all the stress of the weekend tourists. Thursday night at Attica in Soho was always fun, and Friday and Saturday night was a mix and match according to your mood: Fancy partying in Central, Soho or Kensington or more casual partying or pubcrawling in Angel. London never stops and my best advice to new comers would be to stay clear of Oxford Street and the most crowded places. Take a stroll down Marylebone High Street, a walk along the canal in Little Venice, Camden market on weekdays. Basically explore the lesser known parts of London. Best bar for a pint with friends or a date is without doubt the Cave in Covent Garden-am I on a boat or in a secluded cabin?Hard to say but the atmosphere is amazing and even though packed with people it is intimate and private. The Light by Liverpool Street station is also highly recommended. Giving a chilled feel and room to dress up or down for an evening out with friends. It has to be mentioned that a stay in London is not complete without a night or two in the one of the West End theatres..A musical or two fullfils the London experience. More than particular places to see, just have a walk around the city. Soak in all the atmosphere, the people, shopping, bad/good food, look at the buildings and merely enjoy the fact that you are in one of the world's most pumping and energizing cities.

The best place to go and to celebrate all night long are the clubs in brick lane, cause they are not that expensive and you can meet lots of young, fashionable and crazy people. Nevertheless, sometimes it's also worth going to the city centre of London, especially when there are special student nights, e.g. in the Sports Cafe near Picadilly.

One of my favourite night spots is an Australian pub called the Walkabout, the music is very good there as well as the atmosphere. Another nice place is Bar Madrid on Monday and Thursday night.People teach you how to dance samba and salsa!! As for the cafe, I like Aroma, though it's a bit expensive...but the place is nice. There are lots of places and events not to be missed! It's London, you know!! They have good exhibitions and I have to say that the British Museum is a must as well as the National Gallery

there's plenty of hot spots in London depending on the type of music you listen to, just read the little fanzines will keep you up to date with all events. I really enjoyed St Patrick's day in a Irish pub on Leicester Square.
