Gay bars Nightlife

The Queen Adelaide

The legendary George & Dragon has moved a mile East and reemerged as the queen of Bethnal Queen.

Bloc Bar

The gaytastic team behind East Bloc gives you a reason to head to Camden, even if you hate the market.

The Nelson’s Head

A pub with just enough Hackney homos and gipsters – and a killer jukebox – to warrant a listing.

The Glory

Half-way between Shoreditch and Dalston, a mandatory stop on your East London party itinerary from Jonny Woo.

Ku Bar Frith Street

Cheap drinks on offer like at its Covent Garden sister venue, in addition to the Ku Tearooms and the annual Mr Ku-T competition.

Friendly Society

Does what it says on the tin. Fun, friendly and flirty, this intimate space is well-loved amongst younger club-kids and disco dollies looking for a pre-club drink.

Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Entertainment entity. Some of the most enjoyable nights out on the gay calendar, with bingo, comedy, cabaret and heavily attended music events all on offer.

Rupert Street

Café society on the street. Managing to create a street style café feel by day and vamp into a crammed push-and-shove destination spot come nightfall.

The Yard

Doing it al fresco. The big outdoor space is the main attraction here, as well as the Happy Hour cocktail deals and al fresco lounging.

East Bloc

East Village NYC meets East London at this hub of hot, gay fun.

Dalston Superstore

Hipper than hip, known for its eclectic line ups, awesome theme nights and tongue-in-cheek events.

The New Bloomsbury Set

A welcome getaway from the usual night out, get cosy in a cranny and sip divine cocktails in this basement bar.

Shadow Lounge

Playing up to its reputation as one of London’s finest, and original, gay clubs, only reinforced after its recent refurbishment.

Circa Soho

Where everybody knows your name? Cheers to that at this slick neighbourhood bar with a personal touch.

Barcode Vauxhall

Clubbing for cavemen. Lots of stainless steel and glowing blue lighting along the curved walls and deep-set bar for an intimate cave-like feeling.

Ku Bar Lisle Street

Cheap drinks and cheaper lays. Stylish of sorts and very young, Ku Bar offers ridiculously cheap drinks and shots.
