Soho & Central London

Soho is home to some of London’s best known gay bars, late night clubs and gay shops – many of which are located on or close to Old Compton Street, Rupert Street and Wardour Street.

It’s a lively place to visit any time – day or night – with a excellent choice of cafés, juice bars, restaurant and bistros. Caffe Nero (corner of Frith Street and Old Compton Street) is one of the most popular hang out spots during the day with both window and outdoor seating – a great place for people watching.

Set back from Rupert Street with its own private courtyard with outdoor heaters, The Yard is particularly popular with those who still like to smoke.

Inside (as with all other pubs in the UK, strictly no smoking), the original brick work, wooden beams and the gorgeous bar staff are exposed. In the case of the bar staff, we mean shirtless.

The Yard is one of the most stylish gay venues in Soho and a firm favourite of ours. They can even host private parties in their upstairs bar. The entrance is directly opposite the Rupert Street bar.

One of the most popular gay bars in Soho. Busy every night of the week, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays. Slightly quieter upstairs if you want to chat with friends. Heidi Licious takes command on Wednesday to present V Karaoke. Saturday is our favourite night when VILLAGE’s sexy go-go dancers strut their stuff on the bar top and podium.

Another very popular gay bar located right in the middle of Soho.

Open 7 days a week, Rupert Street serves food (burgers, etc.) and drinks during the day but is packed with the party crowd in the evening, spilling over onto the street during the summer.

Plenty of eye candy both in front and behind the bar. Rupert Street brings in some pretty good DJ’s to play live every Friday and Saturday night.

For more than a decade, The Duke of Wellington has served as a classic British local gay pub in the middle of Soho.

A genuinely friendly bar that serves as a ‘local’ for many who live or work in the heart of the city. You’ll find plenty of sport fixtures on flat screen TV’s on the weekend.

Just off Wardour Street, in the alley between Ann Summers and The Village in London’s famous gay district Soho lies this fun, friendly basement bar, popular with London’s young gay scene.

Barbie dolls hanging from the ceiling, eclectic lights and black & white films showing in the corner make this bar a unique place, with a nice, relaxed atmosphere – a favourite hangout for both straights and gays.

TGE writer Kieran Watkins recommends stopping off here for a drink and a quick ogle of the gorgeous barmen before heading for the big gay nights in town.

Comptons of Soho

audience rating 3.7 stars from 7 votes - click to vote

Comptons is located in what used to be a Victorian hotel. In the 1950’s, the hotel had become a pub called ‘The Swiss Tavern’ and acquired a reputation as being a meeting place for gay men which at the time was illegal.

In 1986, the name was changed to “Comptons of Soho” and it came out in the open as being a gay bar. Now, more than 25 years later, Comptons is still regarded as one of the most popular gay bars in London.

The bar attracts a more mature, beer-drinking crowd than found in some of the other gay bars in Soho.

Traditional English gay pub in the heart of Soho, named after Admiral Adam Duncan who defeated the Dutch fleet in 1797.

Inside the bar is a chandelier in memory of the 3 people killed and 70 injured in the 1999 attack by a neo-Nazi who attempted (and failed) to stir up homophobic tensions in London.

The attack marked a turning point in the relationship between the police, local government and the gay community which became closer and stronger than ever before.

All gay tourists to London should pay at least one visit to this historic gay bar.

G-A-Y is part of the fabric of gay London. Originally a popular nightclub at the now-demolished Astoria Theatre, G-A-Y operates two bars in central London.

Located in the heart of Soho, the bar attracts a fun-loving young crowd most nights of the week. Cheap drinks Mondays to Thursdays.

The venue is spread across 3 floors. Upstairs can be far more popular than the ground floor during the week as it has a small outdoor terrace (usually full of smokers). The basement is slightly more chic.

Packed at the weekend. Everyone is frisked on the way in. Like all big bars, be aware of your wallet and phone. Nearest Underground: Tottenham Court Road

The independently owned gay bar & dance club, located just a few steps from Leicester Square, celebrates its 20 anniversary in 2016.

The spacious main ground floor bar attracts all types, from twinks to muscle Mary’s, locals and tourists. The walls of flat screen TV’s play nonstop chart-topping music videos, whilst behind the bar, the Ku boys are a visual treat in their own right (check out the video below).

Ku Klub is located in the basement of the bar and is open from 10pm to 3am every night. Entry is free, apart from Friday & Saturdays after 11pm (£5). Both bar & club continue to be two of the most popular gay venues in London.

Great service and great drinks at reasonable prices. This is a winning combination that has been reflected in the many awards this bar has won in recent years. Regular drink promotions.

Molly Moggs looks and feels like a London institution – one of the friendliest and most authentic of gay pubs in Soho. Located at the far end of Old Compton Street, on the corner with Charing Cross Road.

Friendly staff offer the warmest of welcomes and an excellent free cabaret performance keeps everyone entertained, 7 days a week.

Missed by many tourists. We think that downing a pint in Molly Moggs should be on the itinerary of any gay traveller seeking an antidote to some of the more commercial bars further up the street.

G-A-Y Late is the after-hours version of G-A-Y Bar, located about a 5-minute walk away – where most of the guys head sometime between 11pm and midnight.

G-A-Y Late can be a little difficult to find as it’s hidden behind the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road Underground Station.  Our map placement is correct, down a narrow path behind Starbucks.

Regular entertainment (karaoke and drag queen cabaret performances) and special events. No door fee, and late license means that customers can enjoy an affordable late-night out. Free WiFi.

The only gay bar still open in this part of South East London. The George and Dragon has a great location and is relatively spacious, but is rather run down and in desperate need of a refurbishment.

Having said that, the bar staff are friendly and it still hosts regular cabaret shows – check their website for details.  The bar also has a pool table. Located next to the Lewisham Road / Blackheath Hill junction, 15 minutes walk from Depford Bridge DLR.
