My visit to London had been sudden. My cousin decided to get married within a fortnight of meeting his fiance, and here we were, flying in from different corners of the world to attend the wedding. I had never been to London before, and the rush of the wedding arrangements hardly gave me time to explore the city to the fullest. So, after the wedding was over, and the newly weds were off to their honeymoon, I decided to start my discovery of London routine. The first thing on my list was to experience the London nightlife.
The vibrant clubbing scene in London
The clubbing scene in London is extremely vibrant, with an array of clubs and pubs to keep one occupied. I found out more about the nightlife in Londonfrom my friends there. I gathered that different pubs had different closing times. Some closed their shutters at 11 pm while others could go on until 3 or even 7 in the morning. Hence it was upto me to decide how long i wanted to party. Well, 11 pm would have been too early for me to retire, so decided to go with the all night ones. So all that was left was gathering the friends I would like to party with. A few phone calls later, we were all ready to go out and have an exciting evening of partying.
When we hit the bar scene
For a while, there was the dilemma between hitting the nightclubs or the quieter lounges. The general consensus was that we wanted to let our hair down in the most happening of clubs, with a healthy flow of alcohol to keep us cheery. Hence, we decided to hit the best nightclubs in the city. The first name that came up to my mind was the Ministry of Sound. You would definitely know about this place, even if you were not a London resident. The place is famous for its DJ nights and the amazing sound! There were three dance floors as well as bars, and it was more than enough to keep us occupied for hours together. It was a weekend, and judging by the crowd, there were thousands of people moving all around us. It could not have been anymore exciting!
A splash down the waters
After sweating it out on the floors on the Ministry of Sound, we decided to hop onto another unique club that is popular amoung London nightclubs – Club Aquarium. Yes, as the name suggests, there is ample of water here in the form of swimming pool and Jacuzzi and is the perfect place to unwind after a crazy time on the dance floors. Plus it is located in Shoreditch, which is regarded as the part of London with the coolest nightlife. We chilled out here for a while over cocktails and then headed out to our respective residences. It was an exceptional night out, and I cannot wait to repeat it again with the other exciting London nightclubs.
