audience rating 2.6 stars from 35 votes - click to vote

The infamous Vauxhall nightclub at the more extreme leather end of the London gay scene. The Hoist has been helping gay Londoners play hard for many years, and it’s still one of the most popular gay cruise clubs in the city.

The music is a sleazy, sexy blend of house and tribal, although there’s no dance floor and no one here actually dances. Courteous, attentive and good-looking bar pay attention to details like lots of ice if you want it, and free refills with your mixer.

The Hoist hosts regular themed nights with a strictly enforced dress code (on some nights, this might be just a pair of boots!). Membership required (£35) and available at the door and entrance fees payable.

Nearest Underground: Vauxhall Station (Exit 1)

After 21 years of service to the London gay community, The Hoist will be closing permanent on the 11th December 2016.
