Best London clubs in Central London
Clubbers searching for a night out in Central London can go for top of the range or a lower-end club.
At the top end, Chinawhite (4 Winsley St; Oxford Circus; £20; -3am) and Mo*vida (8-9 Argyll Street; Oxford Circus; £20; -4am) are busy but incredibly stylish destinations. A popular club for B and C-list celebrities, in each room the music is mostly funky house and RnB, particularly at the weekends.
If you are lucky you might even be able to bag a seat in the VIP room. However, celeb-spotting comes at a price, namely around £20 entry.
One of the best gay clubs in London is Heaven (Villiers Street; Embankment; -5am), which hosts G-A-Y nights at the weekends and attracts live performances from Marina and the Diamonds to the X Factor contestants that have been knocked out each Saturday.
Students can pick up at bargains each Wednesday at Moonlighting (17 Greek Street; Oxford Street; £4), a hugely popular indie night, where the drinks are just 90p all night and entry is only £4.

Richard Branson's Kensington Roof Gardens (99 Kensington High Street, High Street Kensington; £20; -3am) is worth the entry. It is one of the best London private clubs and you can put yourself on the guest list to get a place to this jazz club.
And to cool off, the club's Spanish, Tudor and English woodland gardens have had a facelift, although the famous flamingos are still there.
Notting Hill Arts Club (21 Notting Hill Gate; Notting Hill Gate; free entry; -2am) is a seriously cool place to catch new music, live bands and entry is usually free. Check online to see who is playing throughout the week.
Cherryjam (58 Porchester Road, Bayswater/Royal Oak; £6; -2am) is located right near one of London's most popular hangouts for travellers, so it has the real bonus of being able to fall out of the club into your bed. At the weekends, Cherryjam plays disco house and dance classics.
Party the night away and then stay at a cheap hotel in West London from £13.30
Club Aquarium (256-264 Old Street; Old Street; £8; -4am) is perfect for people after something unique. One message: bring your swimming costume.

This place is also great if you want to continue the party, as its BIGFISH house and techno night on Friday's starts at 2am and goes on until 9am.
Herbal (10-14 Kingsland Road; Hoxton; £10; -3am) is a popular hangout for residents in the trendy Hoxton/Shoreditch area. Entry is £10, but it has a great roof garden and DJs playing dance, urban and even reggae.
People on a quest to have a pint with Pete Doherty might have success at the Rhythm Factory (16-18 Whitechapel Rd; Aldgate East; free-£12; -6am), an indiscreet club in the heart of the East End. It is a little run down, but there is usually live music playing each night.
With prices from as little as £13.30, reserve a hotel room close to East London clubs
Fabric (77a Charterhouse Street; Farringdon; £15; -8am) is perhaps one of the most famous London clubs. It has a huge following and although it costs £15 to get it, you can be there until 8am. FabricLive is now legendary and sees some of the world's best DJs play out for hours.
If you're after a bit more indie stylings or DJ sets from the likes of Annie Mac, KOKO (1A Camden High Street; Mornington Crescent; £5; -4am) is a good bet. You might even catch London's nightlife celebs like Kate Moss there.
Now four years old, The Big Chill House (257-259 Pentonville Rd; Kings Cross; free- £5; -3am) is exactly what it says. Chill out and have fun, while listening to a host of DJs in a club that has spawned out of the Big Chill Festival. You can even grab a cup of tea as you dance away at Mr Scruff's brew bar.

Clubbers trying to recreate their days in Ibiza can head to Pacha (Terminus Place; Victoria; £6-£15; -5am), a paradise for fans of Hed Kandi and house music. Pacha is even planning to put in a roof terrace for "al fresco" clubbing.
Over in Brixton, Mass (Brixton Hill; Brixton; £5-£15; -6am) is a three-floor club set in a converted church. Funnily enough, the church is still open every Sunday. This club plays mostly R&B, Hard House and grime, as well as special events such as the legendary fetish club Torture Garden.
Renaissance Rooms (Miles Street, Vauxhall; £10-15; -2am) is the home of the roller disco.
