Shadow Lounge


In the heart of Soho lies the upmarket Shadow Lounge. It's the perfect place to go for a few cocktails, and to take advantage of the late night bar. The Shadow Lounge is London’s premier gay members-only bar, but if you can't afford the £350 membership fee, you can still visit by registering on the guest list in advance (or take your chances on the door!)

With emphasis on quality, service and comfort, The Shadow Lounge has been designed to make guests feel as welcome and relaxed as possible.

Recently renovated, the Shadow Lounge is wonderfully put together. With a small (under floor 70's disco lights) dance floor in the centre of the room, surrounded by a raised standing area, reserved tables as well as one lone pole for those who dare to dance you are bound to have fun. Bathrooms are the cleanest around (with very nice soaps/lotions).

Drinks: Cheaper than surrounding clubs but...more

I've always been told this was a hard bar to get into, though in the past two weeks, I've encountered several emails and events that offered free guestlist for this place, so it doesn't realllly seem so exclusive.

The member's only thing is usually only employed in the case of mis-fits or...more

Shadow Lounge is London's first and premier Gay members club. If you can get inside (means being signed in by a member) you can revel in the usually busy, sleek surroundings.

As any good gay bar should be it is unashamedly stylish and chic. The club itself is not afraid to have a laugh with some fantastically entertaining live acts and music throughout the week. If you feel like jumping on...more
