Bar News

Posted on May 18, 2016


Vauxhall’s home of dinner and debauchery BackCOUNTER is in full swing every night of the week. It’s the place to see and be seen, the home of London’s gay glitteratti, twitterati and paparazzi (when we say paparazzi, we mean Joel Ryder with a pint, but that counts). This Friday it’s their popular Friday Night Fever! With a live set from DJ Chillz from 8pm-1am, and happy hour from 5-8pm.

Arch 50, 7-11 South Lambeth Place, Vauxhall, SW8 1SP 

Old Ship

The Old Ship is a friendly gay Limehouse watering hole, perfect for a post-work pint or a raucous Saturday night. Slide into a booth and enjoy! The crowd are non-judgy and super-friendly, so it’s really nice vibes. This Saturday 28th they’re playing host to the Drag Idol Final, with Mandy Gap! It’s bound to be a camp, unmissable extravaganza! From 8pm.

17 Barnes Street, Limehouse, E14 7NW  

The Two Brewers

The Brewers is Clapham’s maddest, busiest gay venue! They’ve got everyone there, from hot hunks (there are A LOT of hunks in Clapham), to drag queens, to twinks and everyone in between! They’ve got a front cabaret bar that sparkles with campery, and a back dance floor for twerking and other hedonistic activities. This Friday 27th from 6pm they’re hosting the Irreplace-ball in honour of Beyonce. What’s she done to merit it? EXISTED, that’s what she’s done! There’ll be loads of Beyonce music obviously, and a bunch of acts including the phenomenal Beyonce Experience, as well as Mary Mac.

City of Quebec 

Nestled down a side street near Marble Arch, and a hop, skip and a mince away from Bond Street, is one of the city’s oldest gay pubs, the City of Quebec! They had a makeover a few months ago and now they’re looking better than ever.

Ku Bar

Ku Bar is a slick central London urban bar, perfect for metropolitan rendez-vous and classy dates! But you already know that because you’ll already have heard of Ku Bar. Everyone’s heard of Ku Bar! Get down there on Sundays to see DJ, fashion muse and lady of the night Lady Lloyd spin her fave hits from the 80s, 90s and 00’s. From 8:30pm.
