Rupert Street Bar

1 user review 4

One of the best gay bars in Soho, Rupert Street is known for its rowdy DJ nights every Friday and Saturday. Situated in the heart of the city, the venue comes alive at the weekends as a beautiful crowd of revellers drop by to take advantage of the great cocktail deals and pulsating party atmosphere.

Drink Shop & Do

627 user reviews 4

A quirky cafe by day, Drink Shop Do is hands down one of the most fun places for a party in King's Cross by night. Swing by at the weekends and follow the Adult & Erotica sign into the basement, where DJs play one killer hit after the other; dropping old school favourites, classic party tracks and the latest chart slayers all night.

Get on your dancing shoes and shuffle on over to Shutter's Chancery in the City. Providing a haven for after-work revellers and friendly get-together, this DJ bar is a slick haunt for drinking and grazing on nibbles before shaking it all off on the dancefloor.

One of London's leading names on the clubbing front, you'll find XOYO packs quite a punch in their upstairs cocktail bar. Special guest DJs do their thing downstairs though, in a art-adorned, NYC-inspired space. You can book a table, head up for a drink and enjoy a brief respite from the mayhem below.

A cafe and bar in the heart of Hackney, NT's serves up laid back vibes by day, but completely transforms itself after dark. Bringing in DJs, live music and master mixologists this spot really knows how to dial things up, so head down for cocktails and a cool mix of disco, house, funk and R&B every weekend.

Barrio Soho

Have a sexy Spanish party in Soho's hottest joint. With cocktails galore, vibrant furniture, brightly coloured walls and a sense of all things tropical, get down to some top hits, some salsa sensations and some sassy Shakira and Sean Paul on a dance floor that loves to see you shake those saucy hips to the best in exotic sounds.
