There may be plenty of clubs in Soho, but if you head just a bit further west or south you'll unearth Mayfair clubs and a whole bunch more clubs in Leicester Square. Prices tend to be higher here, but if you have the extra cash you'll find a range of places to splash it at. Including long-standing Moulin-Rouge style nightspot Café de Paris, the Playboy Club London and Mayfair's Karaoke Box with its seven themed rooms, for those times you're just itching to belt out 'Paparazzi' in 'Lady Gaga's Padded Cell'. See if there's something that'll tickle your fancy in our round-up of these Mayfair clubs in central London.

Clubs in Mayfair

Ku Bar & Club
  • Nightlife
  • Cabaret and burlesque
  • Leicester Square

Occupying a prominent spot on Soho’s fringes, this large LGBT venue is regularly voted London’s best. Ku is a little classier than local rival G-A-Y, but it attracts a broadly similar crowd and the young, up-for-it vibe is just as much fun. The ground floor offers a bright and modern bar space with video screens playing chart hits; downstairs is a clubbier room where fresh-faced types of all genders cut a rug to pop and dance remixes.
