Best cities for nightlife
Eclectic club nights and an unrivalled live music scene...
t’s time to shimmy aside Ibiza and move over Las Vegas; England’s nightlife now reigns supreme, offering an eclectic mix of nights out to suit even the most eccentric of booty shakers.
For those with staying power London is an obvious, though electric place to start. Famed for its party vibe and home to world renowned clubs such as Fabric and Pacha , where cutting edge music comes in abundance.
Further north, Manchester is well known for its party scene. Head to the Northern Quarter, where you’ll find some of the best independent bars and traditional pubs around as well as a host of live music venues.
For an experience quite like no other check out the Warehouse Project , an underground club night that sees dedicated music lovers flocking to the north in search of some serious beats.
For some authentic live music head to Brighton , a city well known for its lively music scene, frequented by new up and coming bands and rock legends alike.
Check out Concord 2 , which is widely recognised as Brighton’s premier live music venue and has played host to bands such as The White Stripes and Bloc Party.
But if you’re not up for pumping tunes, loud guitars or even over enthusiastic foot tapping then fear not as in England you’re never far from an intimate pub or quirky little bar that offers cleansing refreshment, great vibes and friendly banter late into the night.
