Late Night Bars London
Finding a late night bar in London can be challenging. London with its diversity and large population is thought to be a 24 hour city abroad, but in reality most our pubs and bars close before or at midnight on weekdays outside of Central London. London clubs are open usually until about 3 am on weekends. Do you ever feel like dancing the night away on a weekday, but can't find a place which is open after midnight? We've all been there, when the lights come on at 3 am on a Saturday and all you want is, to continue dancing or mingling for a couple hours more. Here is our list of recommended late night bars and clubs in all around London to continue the partying!
