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.

16/05/15: There’s nothing like a mammoth nightclub under railway archways, packed full of shirtless bears dancing to commercial house. I mean, out of all the stereotypes, this is the one we don’t mind being part of.

28/03/2015: XXL consistently commands a crowd; the cavernous, epic venue can most certainly accommodate one - the atmospherically lit, high, stone-ceilinged network of spaces seeming more like arenas than mere rooms.

Wow, was Epic epic or what? The club night that’s the brainchild of New York super-promoter Michael Theriault saw glamorous doyens of the gay scene flock upon Southwark superclub Pulse in their scantily clad legions.

16/05/14: It may have been the Eurovision Camp Contest everywhere else in the world, but in our bubble, Saturday night was owned by one fierce woman belting out tunes to a bunch of gays; Rita Ora. The last time Miss Ora appeared at Heaven, she’d already released a string of hits, so when we heard she was back to perform her latest tune ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ we were there quicker than you can say “bearded lady who?”

10/05/14: The night couldn’t have got any happier and humpier than XXL’s Saturday night Eurovision Party. The club was fully electrified with the joy of Austria’s Mister-sister Conchita Wurst, the bearded ‘lady’, winning Eurovision. What else could possibly put a smile on the face of a bearded burly biker daddy than seeing one of his own kickin arse and takin home the trophy!
