All naughty Northern line fanatics grab your coats, it’s time to head out late! To celebrate everyone’s favourite thin black line’s inclusion in the night tube service we’ve selected 6 exciting things to do along the Northern line after midnight…
1. Dance the night away at Proud Camden
Located in Camden Town, one of London’s most effortlessly edgy areas, Proud Camden is a bar/club inside a converted stable building. Giving ‘Stables Market’ it’s name sake, this old stable building is as cool as they come and a perfect place to end your night in Camden. With various club nights and a lovely, garden-esque outside bar/smoking area (complete with a hot tub for those who fancy a dip!) grab yourself a Camden Pale Ale and boogie all night long!
Open until: 2:30am on weekends.
Camden Market, The Horse Hospital, The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH
Nearest Tube: Camden Town
2. Treat yo’self to a mighty midnight feast at Spuntino
With only ’27 barstools and a popcorn machine’ this tiny Soho eatery boasts a surprisingly large menu including lobster mac ‘n’ cheese and soft-shell crab sliders (featured above) for your most fancy of drunk eats – oh DAHling. Despite the delicious decadence, this pint sized restaurant is packed full of grungy-chic attitude. Order yourself a bourbon from their impressively large selection to ensure you maintain that buzz all night long!
Open until: 1am Thursdays-Saturdays.
61 Rupert St, Soho, London W1D 7PW
Closest Tube: Leicester Square
3. Stay out ALL night at Ministry of Sound
Open until 6am on Fridays and 7am on Saturdays, you may not even need the night tube home after partying at one of London’s most famous clubs. Take a look at their website for details on their many different club nights before you go, as sometimes buying tickets in advance comes highly recommended! If you can’t hack the buzzing techno beats and flashing lights until morning then the Northern Line night tube will surely be your late night hero.
Open until: 6am Fridays/7am Saturdays.
103 Gaunt St, London SE1 6DP
Nearest Tube: Elephant and Castle
4. Take all your mates to the WC
…don’t be so crude! You’ll barely have to stray far from the Northern Line at all as this former public toilet turned chic bar is located right underneath Clapham Common station. Giving a new meaning to the word WC, this century year old quaint little bar/eatery serves up Wine and Charcuterie and is a surprisingly fancy venue considering its toilet-y past! Indulge your most adult side with Duck Liver Parfait or Baked St Marcellin Cheese whilst sipping on a 2013 Pinot Noir and discussing some recent affairs in world politics… (basically, we’re fucked!)
Open until: 12:30am Fridays and Saturdays.
Clapham Common South Side, London SW4 7AA
Nearest tube: Clapham Common
5. Avoid the tourists at Westminster
Avoid the hustle and bustle of day time tourists scrambling over each other to snap photos of Big Ben and Westminster. Instead, stroll along the Thames from Embankment station and behold Westminster proudly lit up after hours… everyone knows it looks better at night time anyway!
Open all hours.
Westminster Palace, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
Nearest Tube: Embankment
6. Stay out late at GAY Late
With £1.70 drinks and pop classics to belt out until 3am, GAY late is a super fun place to chase the sunrise. If you can ignore the sticky floors, and kind-of horrific toilets then you’ll love this cheesy-chic neon paradise. The walls are covered with 90s style TV screens showing banging music videos to accompany the tracks… so get your glad rags on and expect lots of Britney, Miley Cyrus and Queen. Don’t stop us now!
Open until 3am.
