Gay Bars In London

London is home to a diverse selection of gay bars; all with different attractions, from karaoke with Go Go boys, Drag DJ sets and kinky Cabaret. There are gay bars that don't need any excuse to party well into the wee hours, or those ideal as the party starters before heading to one of London's gay and lesbian clubs or club nights, or you can relax in a friendly and social atmosphere in the more chilled out gay bars of London. With its famous area of fun and exciting gay bars in Soho, London has so much to offer, and here are a few of our favourites.

The Village

0 user reviews

A deceptive exterior, The Village, Soho is much more than the pub it appears as on the outside and is an iconic bar and club. People watch and relax with friends from the outdoor pavement seating, before choosing between one of the three floors inside. There is a shiny lounge area, decadent boudoir bar, or the pumping dance floor with chart toppers blaring. They host happy hours every night and with performances from drag DJs and Go Go boys the weekends are exciting to say the least.
