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.

We went to Shadow Lounge our first night in London which happened to be a Thursday and it was a total blast.

Bathrooms are the cleanest around (with very nice soaps/lotions).
Drinks: Cheaper than surrounding clubs but...more
Soho at it's best? Maybe. The exclusiveness is probably something quite attractive about this place, then again it seems that at least style-wise they let everyone in (is it about the wallet?). Even though I can only refer to movies I've seen about this era, I felt a bit like dancing back in the eighties. Loved the retro, blinky, light-dancefloor. The show stage, literally, due to the fence...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

The nice thing about Shadow Lounge is that it fills a much needed gap in the market, i.e well...more
