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.




  1. Jake

    “This is a great place; however they have recently increased their cocktail prices from £9 to £10.50........this is a huge jump in price and may now just be their downfall. Always busy but the increase in drink prices will surely change that.“

  2. Best kept secret in Soho!

    “This has to be Soho's best kept secret, a cosy, affordable underground bar full of young, gorgeous guys, kitsch interior and a chilled, laid out ambiance. There's Barbie dolls on the ceiling and Bette Davis and Judy Garland playing on a projector screen in the corner. Great place to meet friends before going on to the gay clubs. I love the Friendly Society!“
