vtravelled Playlist: Late Night London

by andrew February 2011 - last edited February 2013 by Community Manager


We're getting in a cab (or hopping on the tube) for a night out at the best bars in town. Our journey through the bright lights is soundtracked by some moody, after dark numbers that capture the cool, cosmopolitan vibe and reflect the feel of the city at night. We begin with an obvious, all-time London classic, but after that, as the cocktails keep coming, things get a little more hazy...


Playlist 11: Late Night London

  • The Kinks – "Waterloo Sunset"
  • Nick Drake – "At The Chime Of A City Clock"
  • Goldfrapp – "Black Cherry"
  • Bert Jansch & Jon Renbourn – "Soho”
  • Dusty Springfield – "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?"
  • The Cinematic Orchestra – "All Things To All Men"
  • Saint Etienne – "Girl VII"
  • The Bug – "You & Me"
  • Pulp – "Bar Italia"
  • The Ballistic Brothers – "Soho Cab Ride"

If you're in the UK or Europe and use Spotify, you can jump straight in to the playlist.


This playlist was inspired by our Barfly's Guide To London.  If you like this, you might also enjoy a night out in California with our After Hours L.A. playlist. If you're into caffeine as much as cocktails, also check out our guide to London's Best Coffee Shops.
