A Guide to the Bars in London, England
London city, the thriving capital of the United Kingdom, is perhaps one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The vibrant nightlife in the city is indicated by the number of bars and pubs that the city has to offer, each a symbol of the different tastes and various influences that exist in the pulsating metropolis.

There are more than 6,000 nightspots in London, many of them clubs and bars, while others are just small niche joints. Also, there are sports bars meant mainly to watch football or tennis; then there are those with an exclusive themed clientele, such as the Goth bars or the Irish St. Patrick's Day pubs and so on.

A hot favourite is the 5th View Bar and Food, a recently refurbished cocktail lounge. It is located in Waterstone's, Piccadilly, and is a congregation point for the literati of London. The surrounding area contains the Royal Academy and the famous Bond Street, while the lounge itself is on the 5th floor of the largest book shop in Europe. Another popular cocktail lounge, with slightly less highbrow connotations, is the Alchemist Bar in Clapham. This retro club is fitted out lavishly in purple and gold, lending a decidedly decadent air to the interior. This place is ideal for a small party, or a night out for dancing.

London has a number of bars, which have a certain unique indefinable something that sets them quite apart. There is The White House, which caters to an affluent clientele
If you fancy a cool night out, chances are that the Absolut IceBar may the best place to 'chill'. Made entirely from ice, this Mayfair bar has a unique theme that provides an interesting evening from the very start. In Camden, Bar Vinyl will delight any music lover's heart. The funky little bar has a music store downstairs, and is quite famous for its choice of music. The Lost Society, in Clapham, is a stunning place with a licensed garden. Each room has a theme, and is startlingly different from each other, whether it is a library, a secret garden or a conservatory.

If you happen to be looking for a place to party or hand out until the wee hours of the morning, London has something for you too. There is a rather popular called Babalou in Brixton, known for the in-house DJs and the range of music that is played. Another place in Clapham, called Inigo appeals to a slightly more relaxed crowd, intent on winding down than partying the night away.
