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.

12/11/15: So it’s Thursday night and you’ve been out in the west end, a few bars, maybe a club… but then it gets to 3/4AM and you don’t want the party to stop, you still feel the need to move to a beat, so where do you go?

13/11/15: Barely a disco-nap away and yet so far removed, A:M, London’s longest running after-hours’ party, opened its doors at Fire as the world still reeled from learning of the terrible attacks on Paris.
