29/10/16: In addition to the usual groups of friends on a crawl and the cute canoodling couples on a date, the twinkling fairly lights of the Yard had attracted an unusual bunch of shady characters this Saturday.
01/07/16: One of Soho’s oldest and best-loved venues, the Yard is always packed full of city boys, cute twinks, super studs and their friends.
Soho Bars New Years Eve
31/12/14: Soho Bars New Years Eve
08/09/14: It was Monday, Joan Rivers was dead, and we wanted to drown ourselves in drink surrounded by statues of nude classical cock.
Soho Easter Bars Round-Up
18-21/04/14: With all the shiny adverts, bells and whistles that accompany the arrival to our shores of various visiting continental mega clubs, it is very easy to become complacent and forget just how lucky we are to have the breadth and diversity of permanent gay venues right here in the city that are open day-in and day-out, come rain or shine.
THE YARD 18TH BIRTHDAY
26/07/13: The gay village was packed last weekend with more queens than Kathy Griffin’s phone book.
25/04/13: Looking resplendent in her finery, this Soho Stalwart is looking gorgeous after her recent nip/tuck and light refurbishment...
19/05/12: Saturday night, and after a week of being hopelessly nun-like (I even watched an episode of EastEnders for Christsakes! Slit the wrists!) my man-minge was pointing towards Soho and positively twitching at the thought of getting back on the town.
19/11/11: Oh, The Yard! If you’d have pitched up at Gayland’s most major alfresco drinking den some years back, you’d have more than likely been greeted with a couple of beleaguered regulars, a shifty-looking old duffer smoking in the courtyard and a goat.
OUTLET FLAT DATING
01/09/11: In a world where we are increasingly carrying out our lives virtually, every so often an event pops up on our radar that encourages us to go out, mingle and swap numbers, and so last Thursday we rocked up to see those lovely boys and girls from Outlet, Soho’s hottest lettings agency, at their Flat Dating party.
19/03/11: You’d think it would be easier to review a bar that I drink at every week… but it turns out, it’s much trickier.
