London has one of the most vibrant nightlife scenes in Europe. Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester are not far behind.
Although English pubs close at 11.00, clubs stay open well into the early hours.
The UK has an excellent music scene that's very much alive in the clubs today. Most of the popular dance music; techno, electronica, house and drum n bass originated in the London clubs.
Glasgow has many pubs and bars well worth checking out. Although mistakenly considered by some as rough and sometimes dangerous, most of the bars are friendly places where the locals are very likely to strike up a conversation.
Glasgow is a spawning ground for many up and coming pop and rock groups. The 'Barrowland' is said to be one of the best venues in Britain for seeing live contemporary music.
Liverpool, home of the Beatles, has a very diverse nightlife. There's a wide range of bars and nightclubs to choose from. Check out L: Scene magazine; it provides you with a thorough calendar of club dates and gigs. Pulse, the free magazine, lists gay activities and events throughout the region.
Manchester is well known for its contributions to the UK music scene. Some of the most important UK bands have come from here; the Stone Roses, New Order, the Smiths, Oasis and the Charlatans, amongst others. The "Manchester sound" has been known throughout the world for over a decade. Live music in the bars and clubs kind of went by the wayside during the early 1990's but it's now making a steady comeback. Nowadays, Manchester has a superb nightlife.
