Hi. A little question for the true Londoners. Could you recommend places to go sightseeing or just to have a good time in London after midnight on Friday or Saturday? Thx

When I saw your question I laughed :-) there is lots of life after midnight but it'll be easier to suggest things if you tell me a bit about your interests and taste in music. Also, where are you staying?

We will have a company of 6 people) different tastes, that's why authentic british pub songs or dances will be a great experience. Maybe you know any places to cherish that moments?
Ah I see yes that makes it tougher as pubs do tend to shut. There are pubs that stay open until 2/3am however normally with a dancey club vibe playing dance, pop or RnB etc. Where abouts are you staying?

i guess we will stay in central part ( Westminster or like that). Are there any night london walks routes or maybe you know nice spots of night London to see?
OK well I know I've read of some night time tours usually spooky or nocturnal animal based. Here is a link worth looking at https://www.visitlondon.com/things-to-do/sightseeing/sightseeing-tours/night-tours however I'm not sure these go on past midnight. London is beautiful at night and you could just go walking along the river Thames especially around London bridge towards the London eye. You could also spend some time in a speakeasy, one of my favourites is in east London called the mayor of scaredy cat town which is within a restaurant called the breakfast club (Shoreditch) you just have to go in and tell them "I'm here to see the mayor" :-D it's the password! However it's small and you may struggle after midnight. This link may be of use https://www.timeout.com/london/bars-pubs/londons-best-speakeasies The reason I suggest speakeasies is because it will suit all tastes. The music tends to be something neutral and not loud and the drinks will be wonderful.

I hope these are of some use to you. Time out is a great magazine to pick up if you can. They are distributed on Tuesdays at most tube stations and hostels may possibly keep some. They are also online too (one of the links I sent above) and are always up to date with the latest things to do in London.
