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.
Beyond’s Last Dance At Fire
21/06/15: Beyond is certainly London’s, and probably the UK’s biggest, best and longest running afterhours party, has made it’s home in some of the capital’s most iconic venues and has been on more than one world tour taking in countries right across the globe.
28/03/2015: A:M was rammed to the rafters with hunks of all tribes, brought together at the Saturday morning after-hours that matters.

13/02/15: More exciting than cards or roses in bed, A:M @ Fire kicked off the Valentine’s weekend with some heart racing beats and plenty of potential secret admirers at this little gem of an afterhours club.

24/08/14: London’s favourite after-hours dance party went to a whole new level last bank holiday as Fire hosted Beyond Obsession – A Fetish Seduction.
04/04/14: Bank Holiday weekends are to hedonistic gay clubbers, what Hanukkah is to the Jewish, or Christmas is to the Christians; i.e. the holy grail in their social calendar.
Recon Full Fetish
27/12/13: QX Club News bucked the post-Christmas Day slump as Recon raised the roof at Fire with the return of its all-action Full Fetish bash.
13/04/13: Vauxhall went intergalactic as out-of-this-world Spanish clubbing superbrand, Matinée, crash-landed on London with a ‘Starship’-themed bash last weekend. The capital’s homosexual space cadets were out in force for the welcome return of one of the most popular parties in the universe, with Fire transformed into a futuristic dance-drome attracting a monumental mass for three rooms of gravity-defying antics at one of the hottest hotspots in town.
TO INFINITY AND BEYOND
Matinée returns for an intergalactic experience to take you beyond the final frontier and into a world far, far away with a ‘Starship’ theme. OK, it’s not that far away - it’s over at Fire in Vauxhall on the Victoria Line - but if past events are anything to go by, this one will blow you into the stratosphere and into Beyond [the after-hours at Area]… literally. At last, the British Interplanetary Society across the road from Fire will have something to talk about (seriously, take a look when you leave, it’s right there!). Promoter Mauricio Ortiz reveals all…

TRADE & BEYOND: ULTIMATE
30/10/11: What happens when you merge sick and bad together? I tell you what... Ultimate!
FIRE FREE PARTY
22/10/11: The third week of the month is always a struggle (payday’s the 28th for most folks), but enter stage right wearing a hero t-shirt, Fire, who helped us through this time by throwing a free party last Saturday night.
09/10/11: So, it’s Saturday night, you’re single and even if you’re not…come on, you’re most definitely ready to mingle on hearing the news that Brazil’s biggest clubbing brand is in town.
