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.

29/10/15: A long, long time ago (well, last Thursday actually) in deepest darkest Vauxhall, a cantankerous cabaret star known all over the land for her sharp tongue and love of all things leopard print, readied herself in the dressing room of the eerily silent Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

19/03/15: Host Myra DuBois opened this unique event as only Myra can, in her wonderfully irreverent style: “We’re here raising money for Mildmay. The charity that brought Jason Reid back to life. Yeah, thanks for that..” Absolutely hilarious! You could tell from then it was going to be a good night...

10/04/13: It was raining cats and dogs outside but it was a whole different animal in the Royal Vauxhall Tavern; comedy nights are one tricky beast. Emma Packer, Chris Fitchew and headliner Zoe Lyons took to the stage in the convivial, candle-lit surroundings, to varying success.
