I thought this place was alright - a fairly typical spot for dancing and mingling. They played Top 40 and remixed pop songs, which most seemed to like. It was fairly easy getting a drink.

I really like the upstairs area since it was a bit more subdued and was an unexpected oasis to the craziness in the basement. It's nice that people have the option to experience to scenes in the same spot. more

One of the best gay bars in Soho if not London. Love the clientele and the staff is even better. Special shout out to Bartender Chris who makes everyone feel special. Great atmosphere and energy! more

Ambience is not bad just wish the staff was a little more inviting and pleasant. The blonde hair guy and bald guy had "stank" faces aka resting b**** face and came off a little nice nasty.

Came here to celebrate my recent engagement and couldn't believe the lack of care from the staff. My fiancé and I were so excited to celebrate and it seemed as if nobody gave two shits that I just proposed. In my book, that is not only horrible CUSTOMER SERVICE, but literally a lack of care for human kind. I'm not asking for special treatment, but even some acknowledgement would have been nice. more
