Gay bars/clubs in London??

I'm heading to London for a weekend break very shortly and just wondering what gay venues in the west end/soho would people recommend there?
I think G-A-Y is a must visit just to say you've been there but it seems to be divided into three different venues....the bar itself, G-A-Y late and Heaven?!
Also heard of a pace called Freedom bar and wondering if that would be any good. Hopefully none of these places are too expensive either.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Re: Gay bars/clubs in London??

Everywhere in London is expensive to drink. The cheapest place I've been to in recent memory was in Canary Wharf where a pint was £4.
Regarding gay bars, I'm not too expert on London, but http://www.timeout.com/london/lgbt is usually good for things to do.

Re: Gay bars/clubs in London??

Vauxhal - Fire, Area, Covert for hot eauropean guys, celebrities, 36 hour parties and sex

Soho - for fun. Yes G-a-y has three venues, all of them are boring as hell, as is Shadow Lounge and the other smaller clubs in soho. I find them riddled with twinks and pervy old men. Freedom is pretty similar Shadow Lounge.

Camden and old street have a few decent gay clubs too


Regarding price, vauxhall is expensive-ish. £8-15 to get in and then a single shot + mixer is around £5. I usually get someone else to buy me drinks when I am at Beyond/Covert. Make friends with the queens and drag queens, they have the drinks coupons

Cheers, there is quite an extensive list there for me to check out

Thanks for breaking it down!

Vaxhaull sounds an interesting spot for sure so I'm most intrigued to check out what's there
Will definitely check out the places around Old Compton St too.

That's what you gathered from Brad's advice? Get one of the gentlemen there to support your drinking habit. Now, that's advice I can get behind.

Check before hand. Those same clubs also host straight parties (orgies as well) there sometimes. Better be safe than sorry.

We must be related sis! I even got Russel Tovey to buy me a drink there once.

I've heard that, but almost all the gay clubs are right next to the station. I've personally never had a problem there, even when walking half naked, drunk at ungodly hours

I think our good sis Cosmic Voices stays somewhere in the heart of Vauxhall. She might be the better person to ask.

Re: Gay bars/clubs in London??

I've never been to London. It's like a huge travel goal this year - if for the shopping alone.

Russel Tovey strikes me a such a self-hating douche.

Re: Gay bars/clubs in London??

Lived in London during the 90s and remember I used to enter free almost everywhere as there was no entry fee for those under 21

My favourite place was G-A-Y in London Astoria. Got to see many concerts like Spice Girls, Westlife, Britney Spears and even the mighty Steps when all of them weren't huge. Nice memories

Loved Kudos too next to Trafalgar Square but as far as I know is gone too. After leaving, I used to visit London once a year (sometimes for Wimbledon Q or first week) but the city has changed a lot, for worse I must say. Haven't visited in the last few years. Maybe it is time to come back

I once went up to Graham Norton in the Shadow Lounge and demanded he buy me a bottle of vodka. He did

Not sure how old you are. Some on here probably frequent the City of Quebec pub near Marble Arch

As is Camden Town.

Soho is probably the safest gay bit of London given the police presence in Central London.
