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.

Douche bag central. The bouncers are above themselves and want to let twinks and coke heads to the front of the line. We had an ungrateful "sigh" when checking our passports.

As Guests in the city , avoid this place at all costs. The tab amounts depend among the bar tenders, as the same drinks are charged different amounts among each bar tender. Two single jack and coke can range from €11.50...more

Well shimmy up to those velvet ropes and pray you can schmooze the door staff because this is definitely Soho's best late night venue.

Vodka boats and copious cocktails are the Lounges claim to fame. You don't even have to check your attitude at the door as there is more than plenty of that flying around the newly renovated decor.

Hip and happening could best describe this night spot. Wall...more

It's not an exclusive club at all. When I've been I've seen all kinds of riffraff inside. It's dingy and the layout is weird. It's never busy either. Rubbish.more

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. 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
