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.

Bathrooms are the cleanest around (with very nice soaps/lotions).
Drinks: Cheaper than surrounding clubs but...more

I popped in after an event that I went to because they made a list for us, and I was a bit surprised to see how small it was. We claimed a little alcove, which, yeah I guess was...more
I've been an on and off regular to Shadow Lounge for going on five years now. When I first started going it was definitely a member's bar and you almost nearly needed a member or regular to get you in. Now it's just as easy to get into as any other gay club in London (not that it's a bad thing).
The nice thing about Shadow Lounge is that it fills a much needed gap in the market, i.e well...more
The best thing Soho has to offer its gays.
As far as gay places go, and I've seen an lot of gay places, this one's pretty damn classy.

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