Bodo’s Schloss

Bodos Schloss

This bar is themed like an Austrian ski lodge to recreate the famous apres-ski atmosphere. It is even rumoured to have a back door that leads directly into the grounds of Kensington Palace, so that the Prince can make a sharp exit.


Prince Harry’s close friend and nightclub entrepreneur Guy Pelly opened this club on London’s Sloane Square after his former establishment, Public, on the Kings Road closed down. The Mexican-themed club features enough tequila to make for a memorable 30th birthday.


Raffles is a bit of an institution on the Kings Road. Founded in 1967, this bar/club is almost 50 years old. A favourite of both Prince Harry and Prince William, it’s an elegant late-night venue.

This celebrity hotspot in Mayfair is themed like a Hawaiian bar and has long entertained party-goers. It’s just by the Ritz Hotel and is a classic spot for the young royals.

The Box

Prince Harry and other young royals have been known to spend soirees at this debauched London nightclub. Harry may have grown out of such antics, but if he decides to relive more youthful days, it could well be an option.

The Brown Cow

This classic pub on the Fulham Road in London has seen Prince Harry enjoy a drink with friends on many occasions. Décor is rustic and cool and their scotch eggs are fantastic. It’s the sibling pub to the other Fulham hangout, The Sand’s End pub so you can guarantee the right crowd for a royal birthday.

The Rum Kitchen

A Caribbean-inspired beach shack in Notting Hill, Rum Kitchen is a vibrant party bar-cum-restaurant. Although, more frequently used for dates, this popular spot could make the ideal location for a birthday.


Princes Harry and William, as well as the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, have enjoyed nights out at this South Kensington club. The small intimate venue would be a great place for a right royal party.

The Dining Room, The Goring Hotel

The Goring Hotel

This classic hotel is where Kate Middleton spent her last night before her wedding and has long been a favourite haunt of the royal family. It is close to Buckingham Palace so could be a good option for a birthday dinner for all the family.

Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace

Or perhaps, as a sign of his maturity, Harry will opt for a quiet night at home at Kensington Palace with his elder brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece/nephew-to-be.

Somehow though, we doubt it…
