For a more laidback option, enjoy a pint at the Duke of Wellington, a traditional London pub that attracts a slightly older (30 plus) gay crowd. The atmosphere at "the Welly" is friendly and drinkers spill out onto the pavements in the summer months. A great place to soak up the Soho atmosphere!

Duke of Wellington is a cozy gay bar in the heart of SoHo, London. I went on a week night during a business trip - and everyone was with a group after work that day. It wasn't the easiest place to meet locals - but the drinks were good and it had a cozy atmosphere.more
The Duke of Wellington was one of the most expensive bars of the night. It was a good old fashioned type pub / bar with a good mixture of people and music. On a hot night you can stand outside the bar.more
A traditional gay bar whats been in SOHO years its right at the end of Old Compton Street and has a friendly crowd of mainly bears and guys with beards haha, its a fun bar many on one level, drink prices are ok for the middle of central London at around £3.40 a pint. it does get crowded at peak times around 5-6pm onwards so it might be a struggle to get to the bar at times. Its not pretentious...more
Good bar in Soho for an early evening pint. Do Monday specials with a pint of Carling for £2. It can get very busy later in the evening.more
Just for the music, this place gets four stars. In one fifteen minute span, I heard (and saw on the video screen) Wham, Communards, Bananarama, Miami Sound Machine, Kim Wilde and old school Kylie Minogue (the video was "I Should be so Lucky").
Plus, the beers are cheap (no fancy beers, had Grolsch, Carling, Kronenburg, Tetley's and several other mass market beers that were fine, but nothing...more
