Clubbing in South London

Opened in 2005, Corsica Studios attracts an artsy crowd of hipsters and students, predominantly lovers of house, disco and techno music. It is also a good choice for anyone interested in dubstep, drum and bass, and garage music, as well as other new and experimental sounds. With a wide-ranging events programme, the friendly club is an award-winning independent art and entertainment venue with live music and bar areas and an adjacent studio. The medium-sized club is intimate and boasts an excellent sound system. Situated on Elephant Road in North Greenwich, there is also a large self-contained terrace and smoking area at Corsica Studios. The south-east London club is located close to the Elephant & Castle tube station
Fire London in the Vauxhall area of Lambeth is one of the best late-night clubs in London and continues to grow in popularity. The awe-inspiring location hosts some of the best DJs from the UK and the United States. Formerly known as the Fire Club, the recently renovated venue features plenty of side rooms to provide a more private, intimate experience beyond the bustling main club floor.
