The place I have frequented the most this year.

Drinks are very cheap, music is good and atmosphere is friendly - good place for dancing, drinking, hanging out with friends and getting wasted without having to sell a kidney (not something easy to do in London).

Soho's cheap thrills and spills gay bar. One of the most well known gay bars in town, but, for what reasons one may ask...

If you've ever been to Soho or just had a wander down Old Compton Street then you'd be no stranger to know of or spot this bar. The big G-A-Y logo outside the front and the pink setting visible outside as well it being inescapable inside is bound to plant a memory in your...more
