Try as you might to resist the lure of Old Queenie on the Essex Road, nights out in Angel often end up busting all kinds of outlandish shapes in this party-central boozer's first floor club room. They promise "cutting edge music and hedonistic debauchery" in spades, with an infectious mix of hip-hop, house, disco and party tunes ringing out and the crowds dancing on the sofas 'til the wee hours.
House Music Clubs in London
London's famous house music scene draws fans and DJs from all over the world together for some of the most unique acts and riotous shindigs each and every week. We've put together a list of the best house music clubs in London, promising some of the most forward-thinking, refined and fresh line ups on the market.
Cargo has made a name for itself as another of the best clubs in London thanks to its top notch live bands and DJ sets. Come for a quiet drink or a bite to eat during day in their massive decked garden or hit the dance floor in the evening, where you'll be going big and hard into the night at this banging Shoreditch house music club.
A two-tiered party hub in Shoreditch with a faded circus glamour theme, you can count on a great roster of DJs lining up to perform at Trapeze throughout the week. The real fun happens in the basement, where a string of the city's best DJs and promoters take the decks playing real house and deep disco tracks until late.
You can't really take a list of the best house music clubs in London seriously until it gives a shout out to this east London powerhouse. Situated right in the heart of Shoreditch, XOYO is a club with an unrivalled level of musical variety. Featuring live tunes throughout the week and top name DJs from the house, garage and electro music scene at the weekend, it's a must for any London clubbing enthusiast.
A new kind of brunch is taking over Shoreditch. Head to McQueen where their Vocal House Brunch will be laying down the pinnacle of classic house hits, alongside guest appearances from Bryan Chambers, Abigail Bailey and Sweet Female Attitude.
There's something reassuringly familiar about Phonox. Opening their doors to a community of like-minded clubbers every weekend, expect to dance to their trusted guest DJs on Friday before the hugely talented Jasper James residency gets into full flow every Saturday. There's a no phone and camera policy - the dancefloor is for dancing, after all - and the music is always on point.
Hop off the train at Victoria and follow your house music instincts straight to Konnect, where a lively bunch party until sunrise across two unique club rooms. Known for attracting both the best in emerging and established DJ acts, expect a playlist of disco, tech house and deep house to come beaming out via the Martin Audio soundsystem here.
