London's Night Tube is looking much more likely now

The main London Underground union wants staff to accept new conditions

Got thoughts that London's Night Tube might never arrive? You can lay them to rest as the London Underground's biggest trade union is recommending staff to accept a revised pay and conditions offer.

It was just last week that we wrote about a potential delay until after May, but it's now emerged that the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union is asking all Tube employees to say yes to the deal on the table.

BBC outlines that a two per cent pay rise in the first year is included in the negotiations, with a £500 bonus for staff working on the Night Tube lines that will be Central, Jubilee, Victoria, Northern and Piccadilly.

Voting on the 24-hour weekend service, originally expected to launch last September and then next month, by the union's 10,000 members begins on February 11, according to the Guardian.

When it eventually does open, which is looking much more promising now, here are the clubs that'll be easier to get to and from on Friday and Saturday.
