I’ve always wanted to know what different cities look like on their nightly outings. So I decided to one on London.
As I’m writing this, I’m thinking about how much I’ll have to rush. After all, it’s 8 pm. It’s officially time…to go out.
This is why I love London so damn much. My night starts early and usually ends early (around 1 am).
Usually I’ll start off the night, with a mass pregame in the flat. This is necessary if you don’t want to spend at least $60 while going out. So let me outline how a casual Friday night in Londres might look like:
1) Adventure Bar: there are a million cocktails to choose from, but be willing to blow some mad dough ($15 for one). Although that sounds expensive, most coctails ive seen here are around 10 pounds. This isn’t bad until you factor in the conversion rate (ugh #america).
If you want to be smart then go grab cocktails during happy hour (aka a5-7:30 pm) and get 2 cocktails for 6 pounds. I love the exotic stuff so I went ahead and got the Surfer’s Paradise (which contained Bacardi gold rum, coconut, pineapple, mango, and passionfruit. It basically tasted like jamba juice but with alcohol).
The hipster spot for all the hipsters out there. Because its 10 PM now, we only have a couple hours to turn up. So we go straight to the club. Also because it’ll be free instead of $30, so #hellyeah. I usually go to Cargo which represents everything nasty, ratchet, and disgusting a club can offer.
3) Tube Station: Liverpool Street
Oh no its 11:50 pm!!!! The Tube stops taking passengers in aroundmidnight, so you run to the tube staton. Its either a 15 minute tube ride home or an hour and 15 minute bus ride. I think tubes the way to go. You swipe swipe in. You get off at Baker street, hope back home and are safe and cuddled in bed by 12:30 AM. My momma would’ve been proud of me.
