24hourlondon: A crucial requirement for all those with a social life in London

A little while ago I came across 24hourlondon. It’s an app that does what it says on the tin. That is, it helps you easily locate London’s 24-hour establishments — or, frankly, the restaurants, bars and clubs that are open late.

When you want the night’s festivities to continue beyond the 11pm cut-off imposed by most places, it’s often a TOTAL arse to try and find an alternative venue. It’s even more frustrating when you know that the chances are one of the places around the corner is probably open late — you just don’t know about it.

That’s where 24hourlondon is incredibly useful. The app contains a list of venues nearby (located via your current position) along with a brief entry for each — and of course, opening/closing times. Helpfully, they also include the number of a local taxi firm that serves the area too.

Each entry is manually verified by the 24hourlondon team for accuracy. That makes me feel good. (Although, I have to say, since we’ve had a baby, I think I’ve been out late in London about twice…!)

But if you’ve got a social life in the city, you might well find this app highly useful. You can find it in the iTunes app store here (£1.49).

I did a quick video overview — here it is:
