One of the best, most historic, and important Gay bars in the UK. It's small but perfectly formed. Ignoring the importance behind the history of the bar, the staff are all incredible and friendly to all. on top of that you get top class entertainers, largely drag artists, every night. There's never a dull moment in the Duncan!more

I dig this bar. Cozy, friendly, decently priced drafts and well located. Good tunes on the jukebox too. Also, not gonna lie, I totally have a crush on one of the bartenders. It looks like they have some cabaret shows and stuff going on different nights, but I've yet to check those out. I probably will, though, as an excuse for checking out something... er, someone else.more
