Going Out

Make the most of the capital with our guides and round-ups focused on going out in London. From clubbing and comedy, to dining out, drinking and gigging, we’ve got something to suit every occasion.
Widely known for its nightlife scene, London has some of the world’s best bars, clubs and music venues. We tell you which are hot and which are not. We tell you where to dine, where to drink and where to dance. But it’s not all after-dark; our going out section covers art, culture, theatre, London activities, date night, pop-ups and more.

Whether you need inspiration for a hen-do, a 30th birthday or a Saturday night with mates, you’ll find everything you need right here. We’ve also jam-packed the section with fun activities, cultural reviews and content on capital’s best pop-ups. Get booking and you’ll never have a boring weekend.
