Stumbled upon this place with my partner after the UK Black Pride event in the Pleasure Gardens nearby. It was JAM-PACKED with guys and there was a drag queen performing Queen (how appropriate!).

Amazing venue with some of the most amazing nights! Quite small and very intimate. It's extremely popular amongst LGBT community therefore therefore you can always meet there some most unique and colourful personalities.

Yes it is hot and sticky, and you have to weave your way through people to get in and out or to the loo but that is part of it all.

The Dame Edna drag show is awesome. Be warned though if you are part of the PC police this act...more
