Clubs Banner

London has the world's most diverse late night gay scene. Mainly located around its three gay villages - Soho, Shoreditch and Vauxhall - there's a gay nightclub to suit every taste, with music policies ranging from R&B and pop to full-on funky house via more underground, edgier sounds. There are, of course, many one-off and special events that happen around town to keep a look out for. And if it's something more 'adult' that you're after, then there's a whole heap of men-only and fetish special interest clubs out there, too.

19/04/14: East(er) Bloc stuffed a rocket in our pockets and boiled our eggs in a pretty pink basket with Handsome Saturday night at the East End’s favourite bunny hole.

11/04/14: Down in the dark dungeon lab of East Bloc, mad scientists Larry Tee and Attack Attack Attack hooked the battery cables to their lil’ monster’s neck plugs, cranked up the voltage and unleashed another Super Electric Party Machine onto the lovable carny folk.

 
Dish

12/04/14: It didn’t really matter that the weather hadn’t quite lived up to our expectations this past Saturday as we knew that things down at Dish would be getting so hot that shorts were still totally acceptable.

 
Songs of Praise

Songs of Praise

05/04/14: QX Club News joined London’s coolest pop-lovers as Songs of Praise hit East Bloc for a ‘Spring Break’ spectacular last weekend. Featuring two rampant rooms of chart-smashing delights and untrammelled underground sounds, a crowd of unruly Eastsiders packed into City Road’s bijou club space as the resident DJ posse ripped up those Bloc rockin’ pop licks into the dawn at one of the hottest homo joints in town.

 
Misfits

Misfits

We were shaking like Whitney on a Tuesday morning when Misfits was snatched away from the weekly Wednesday social slot in our diary. And last week it finally returned! It’s always tough to know when a club night relaunches whether it will quite live up to its previous home, but we can assure you it did, and so much more.

29/03/14: Air-kissing bouncer matriarch extraordinaire Janisha, we entered the Beast of the ‘Bloc.

14/03/14: SEPM at EB opened the hatch of their subterrenean lair Friday night and let loose a whole tin of whoop-ass!

15/03/14: After 20 minutes of wandering around Shoreditch in a drunken haze, we finally remembered where we were and made it to East Bloc in one piece (just).

08/12/14: What with Spring officially here, and everyone boasting about their skimpy outfits on Dish’s Facebook page, we had made an executive decision; it was definitely time to break out the short shorts again. But even in outfits that would make a stripper gasp, we were sweating more than Putin at a Pride Parade.

 
Thursgays

20/02/14: East Bloc have a new night in town on Thursdays, to bring you a party with a difference and some contemporary cabaret-laced razzmatazz. QX dipped our dainty, ladylike toe into Thursgays’ carnivalesque world last week and soon we were diving in head first without a backwards glance.

 
Super Electric Party Machine

Super Electric Party Machine

14/02/14: Super Electric Party Machine puckered up for a powerful Valentine’s Day kiss that damn near caved in our foreheads! Larry Tee, AttackAttackAttack and the boys on da bloc hooked hems with some of fashion’s uber–rag stars, deck stars and drag stars to add a soundtrack to London’s Fashion Week that was more smashin’ fashion than catwalk couture.

08/02/14: While we normally reserve our “cheat” days for the post-weekend, there is one treat we can never resist. Normally at a birthday bash you’d expect that to be cake, but everybody know that ain’t how Dish rolls, and we much prefer indulging in a cute club kid any day.

 
Blocheads

Blocheads

25/01/14: I hit the heights of Saturday night by dropping into the depraved depths of East Bloc for BlocHeads’ new make-over “Macho Sluts”. The cavernous confines of East Bloc’s hellishly hot hole is perfectly suited for a maze of muscle, music and mayhem resurrecting the sexy ol’ Tom of Finland days of Chicago Eagle’s subterranean play pit, NYC’s Spike and Amsterdam’s Argos.

 
Super Electric Party Machine: Album Launch

Super Electric Party Machine: Album Launch

1701/14: We fastened our seat belts, folded our trays and prepared for the launch of a lifetime Friday night as East Bloc zoomed into stratospheric heights with the release of Super Electric Party Machine’s self-titled album.

11/01/14: Firstly, we’d like to wish good luck to those partaking in a dry January; we showed our support by raising a glass to their efforts.

 
Gutterslut

Gutterslut

28/12/13: After three years in their beloved home of East Bloc, the Guttersluts are packing up their camp(er) van and going on a Thelma and Louise road trip, hopefully with several hot cowboys but without the sticky ending.

 
Super Electric Party Machine

13/12/13: Party animals Larry Tee and AttackAttackAttack super-charged the ground beneath City Road yet again last Friday and it wasn’t just the hot boys that got the East Bloc basement shacking.

14/12/13: “Girl, you’re gonna catch your death” was the first reaction when we showed off our skimpy outfit for this month’s Dish.

 
Ponystep

30/11/13: The irreverent Ponystep magazine launched its Christmas call to arms for the style conscious and the crazy-makers on Saturday 30th, and where better than the nightclubbing ‘Oz’ of the city’s East?

 
TheMenWhoFell2Earth 3rd Birthday

TheMenWhoFell2Earth 3rd Birthday

23/11/13: You can throw all the hard-bodied gogos in tiny Aussie Bum undies you like at a podium crowded with mega-pouting transsexuals and a screaming diva on a mic that you like, but to us there are really just three things we want from a decent night out: hot tunes, a cool crowd, and a venue that never fails to deliver.
