Covent Garden's got it!
In fact, Covent Garden and its environs are considered to be the entertainment hub of London. And with a wealth of theatres, clubs, bars, pubs and even the opera, the many reasons for the area being deemed such a mecca for nightlife are certainly evident. Of course, with such an abundance of quality choices, actually deciding how to spend your evening (or perhaps the wee hours of your morning?) may seem a bit daunting. However, there's no need to be overwhelmed, as long as you know a little background information about your nightlife options.

To keep things simple and enjoy a night out in true Londoner style, head for the pubs! Covent Garden has several, with a number located right on the famous piazza. Within Covent Garden Market, the Punch and Judy features a large outdoor drinking area as well as a balcony bar, is popular with the tourists. The beautifully decorated Cross Keys, 31 Endell Street, is a safe bet for more of a friendly local feel. As with anywhere in London, the possibilities to grab a pint (or a glass of wine) are endless. Even if you don't want to spend the whole night in a pub, popping in for a quick tipple may be just the thing. Pubs make perfect meeting points too.

Another way to keep it simple and still have fun is to take in a movie. With the big movie houses of Leicester Square merely seconds away, there's a good chance something will be on to suit your tastes. Leicester Square is home to no less than four film theatres, and if you include the screens in nearby Soho and Piccadilly Circus too, the possibilities for cinematic escape are endless.

As part of the West End (London's theatre district), Covent Garden is surrounded by world renowned theatres. Landmark theatres, such as the Palace Theatre at Cambridge Circus (currently hosting the smash hit Monty Python's Spamalot) are draws in and of themselves. A list of the beloved shows performed by star studded casts on any given night of the week includes favourites like the Lion King, Wicked, Mamma Mia and many, many more!

For a truly memorable evening, how about a night at the opera? Covent Garden is home to not one but two opera companies: the Royal Opera at the Royal Opera House on Bow Street on the East Side of Covent Garden and the English National Opera round the way at the London Coliseum on St Martin's Lane. Both put on events and performances across the calendar, and their respective houses are well worth a look see alone. Indeed, the stunning Royal Opera House is one of the leading opera houses in the world.

Dancing the night away in Covent Garden isn't hard to do. From Latin beats at Salsa! Bar & Restaurant at 96 Charing Cross Road to the pulsating sounds emitted from Gardening Club located in the piazza, Covent Garden is just the place for getting down. Additionally, a plethora of live music venues, comedy clubs and chilled out nightclubs abound.

Of course, for many a night on the town would be incomplete without a fabulous dining experience in a nice restaurant. Variety is the rule round this area with dining options for every budget and taste. Covent Garden's restaurants cater to the steady stream of visitors, with several eateries conveniently lined along the piazza. Many eateries accommodate the theatre crowds with pre- and post-theatre bookings and menus. An abundance of virtually every sort of eating establishment imaginable awaits.

With saucy Soho, posh Mayfair and the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus effortlessly accessible, not to mention Covent Garden's own entertainment offerings, this slice of London is the perfect location for a night out. All tastes are catered for in an area offering the best of London nightlife. Covent Garden's central location means it is incredibly easy to reach from just about anywhere in London. You're within walking distance from a number of Tube stations and bus stops, and the popularity of the area as an entertainment destination ensures a steady flow of cabs throughout the day and night. So what are you waiting for? Go out and have some fun!
