17/09/16: With 30 years at the heart of gay Soho, rather than resting on its laurels, the Grand Dame Comptons continues to add a little something extra to the mix with live DJs over the weekend to help get the party started.

Saturday saw lovely little Lee Harris spinning the tunes with the very best house and commercial tracks to get us in the mood. The packed bar was a mix of guys just out for a drink as well as those about to hit the clubs and make a night of it.

And whilst the bearded lovelies behind the bar were über efficient, we would have appreciated a little more time to take them in while they filled us up! Friendly security, great prices, fun entertainment and loads of eye candy – there’s a reason why Comptons is at the top of her game while so many other venues are falling like flies. Long may she reign.
