A Night out in London: Dining & Music

Have you had a A Night out in London with Dining & Music? The actual number of clubs and restaurants in London is an ever-shifting as establishments open and close. The best estimate places the number at 3343 for the former and over 16000 of the latter, without accounting for a certain amount of overlap. A quick mental calculation then shows that a hungry and thirsty diner could spend fifty years of generally pleasurable time visiting a different one each day.

A traveler, however, does not have fifty years at his or her disposal, else-wise one ceases to be a traveler and instead is a resident, and likely a rather chubby one at that. So, the question is, where does one begin? Here are three suggestions for evening pleasure: haute cuisine, modestly priced family meal, and live music.


For complete gastronomic nirvana, L’Atelier de Joel Rubuchon may well be the British capital’s finest restaurant for haute cuisine. Located in Covent Garden, quite near the famed Opera House, one might wish to dig into La Truffle (black truffle risotto with parmesan shavings), La Caille (quail stuffed with foie gras and mashed potatoes – this is England after all) and finished off with Le Chocolat Tendance (a creamy chocolate mousse, bitter sorbet, and an Oreo cookie crumble). Do bring a credit card or two as that meal just listed will set one back £86, and the wines haven’t even been ordered.

Well, perhaps haute cuisine isn’t on the palate. Who doesn’t like Chinese food if it is exceptionally well done? The Silk Road restaurant in London’s South East specializes in dishes from north-west China’s Xinjiang province and will feed two people quite comfortably with drinks for about £30. The noodles and stews are especially recommended.

Music and Entertainment

Now that the belly is full, it is time for a bit of fun! The Rolling Stones, John Mayall and Eric Clapton all speak (and play to) London’s great love of American Blues music. Currently, the hottest place in town to go is The Blues Kitchen found in Camden. With a combination of jam sessions, major players on weekend evenings, and relaxed jazz on Sunday afternoons, all the best music is served up hot in the Kitchen and closes any day in the best possible fashion. Enjoy your Night out in London with Dining & Music. Happy travels!

    That would be something to go to London. The history there would be my interest. I realize they had rebuilding, but there is still so much to see. I think I would go see the lesser known bands since a lot of bands begin there!

    yeaow! I’d love to take a trip to London and enjoy the dining and music. It would be great to have a residence there, and actually live there (as I’ve read many wealthy ppl have brought properties but don’t occupy them, as investments).
