Room Service – The Easter Resurrection
Back from the dead! Can we get a HALLELUJAH!? They’re back from the island of lost club nights and have landed on the Embankment at the funky fresh Circa The Club. From their not so humble beginnings back in 2010, this bicep-flexing hip-thrusting night is back after two long years of beauty sleep. Pretty boys and throbbing neon strobes, we can’t wait to get back into it! It’s going to be MAJOR! Scene Empress Jodie Harsh will be on hosting duties, so keep an eye out for a coiffed mane and lip gloss stains on the bathroom mirrors. Grab a silk dressing gown and your most luxurious eye mask because on Thursday night we’re ordering ROOM SERVICE.
Friday 19th April / Sunday 21st April
BRÜT/ BRÜT XXXTRA
You think just because it’s Easter Weekend you get to take it easy on a Friday night? WE DON’T THINK SO! This Friday night, like every Friday night, Bloc South is being taken over by a rowdy gang of blokes, bears cubs, chunks and hunks for a naughty night of exploring dark corners, and making the most of that play space. Taking to the decks are LCB/Juliano and special guests Amyl (Ross Jones & Simon M). Their two dance floors are always full of brutish guys who look like they’ve wondered in after a day of filming Game of Throne’s final season. Meet us in the booth upstairs, Khal Drogo! PLUS they’re serving up an XXXTRA helping of BRUT this Easter Sunday. They welcome back LCB/Juliano and guest DJ Paul Heron. Dance to some chunky beats and cruise a chunky bear.
Friday 19th April
Oh LORD. Who opened it up THIS time? Thankfully, this Pandora Boxx isn’t full of ‘evil gifts’ like the other one. Instead she’s overflowing with sequins, glitter, and a few devilish one-liners. She shot to fame on an international stage during the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the first season of All Stars (not that anyone saw it) and now she spends her time jetting the globe bringing her One Woman Show to her adoring fans. She’s known for her quirky style and geeky state of mind, and trust us, a Dr Who reference is NEVER lost on Mz Boxx. This Miss Congeniality is the sweetest little cupcake to come from that cut-throat reality show, but don’t let that fool you. She’s been known to be QUITE dangerous with that unicorn horn.
The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, 372 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall SE11 5HY. £15 tickets available at VauxhallTavern.com.
Saturday 20th April
XXL Military Easter Special
OH! We DO love a man in uniform. Nothing like licking a chunky pair of leather boots while he gives you the ‘Sir, Yes Sir’! Get a good look at some handsome Privates, and XXL is sure to be packed full of them. They’re welcoming back some heavyweights of the music mixing scene, with XXL favourite Moto Blanco taking to the decks, with Hutch Back and Back Set also serving up some chunky beats that’ll have you shaking your hot cross buns. Soldiers sure have lost their flair since the Romans paraded around in red velvet skirts during that first Easter, but THIS Easter weekend it’s camo all the way baby. The best use of that Monday bank holiday is having an extra day of nursing that hangover from a Saturday night at XXL.
Athena – April Party
They’re BACK, betches! After celebrating turning the ripe old age of 7, which is basically 52 in party years, they’re revving up for the April installation of all things Athena. Their doctrine is simple: serving up female-led 80’s hits with a splash of palm trees and crimped hair. An eighties night is something you come across a lot in London, with your usual club just whacking in a Best of the 80s CD and hoping Karma Chameleon doesn’t come on more than twice. That is NOT how they do it over at the Eagle. Resident DJs Paul Joseph and Gareth Hackney school the children on what a finely crafted set sounds like, with special guest DJ Neil Prince busting the basics out of the water. From Bowie to Blondie, Spagna to Soft Cell, it’s a throwback night that’s sure to pump you full of that sticky sweet nostalgia.
TFN –Totally Fekkin Nude
The party where just taking your top off for a boogie isn’t going to cut it. You have to get Totally Fekkin Nude! It really saves you time when deciding on your Saturday night outfit when you know you’re spending the night in absolutely nothing. Taking over the amazing facilities of the Covent Garden Health Spa once again this week are those naughty JamieHP boys who know how to throw a sex-positive party. Drawing a crowd of London’s hottest lads all looking to get some action this weekend, the talent is never disappointing over at TFN. There’s always someone you’ll want to dip into that large spa pool with. Why bother spending your night trying to pull at the club, when you can get Totally Fekkin Naked!

Taking to the decks to serve out some filthy beats are Massimo Paramour and Toby Bruno who always get the crowd pumping.

Fabulous: She Has Risen!
Getting up from a death-drop is hard work. Just ask Jesus Christ! It even took him a few days. Rising this Easter is a deity known for being just as gay as the prodigal son himself. Fagulous brings to The Glory stage a scandalous, sordid display of blasphemy with She Has Risen. This comedy cabaret show is sure to resurrect your hope in humanity and bitch-slap your sacred ass. When she’s not rising from the dead, Fagulous has performed across London garnering rave Time Out reviews. Her Liza is flawless, and her Theresa May has the real one enlisting her as her dance-double for next year’s Conservative conference. Yank out those rosary beads that you mistook for a very different set of beads and come get drunk on communion wine as we cheer to Fagulous as she rises!
WE – Into The Woods

George and Dragon
Off the beaten track is where we like to hang out, so the George and Dragon is a favourite haunt of ours. You don’t need to travel to central for your drag queen jollies; the glittering stage of the Dragon hosts all of your favourite queens working the London circuit. This Easter Monday three old witches who were at the original crucifixion are gearing up to crucify The Duchess (pictured) for a good old fashioned ROAST.

The KU Easter Weekender! This upcoming mega weekend means London is going to be infiltrated by crowds of hot visitors looking for a drink, a dance and some petting. They’re open Midday to Midnight all weekend long! Every time we’re in there we end up chatting to a handsome stranger of the Spanish or Italian or French variety who’s looking for a good time while they’re in town. A night at Ku is exactly that. By the fifth drink, we’re itching to get on down to the Klub for some bops! They host some of the freshest DJs working the London scene who knows how to keep the party going into the early hours. Good beats mean you’re not flagging until the Uber home and Alvaro has promised to carry you in. For good vibes and flirty out-of-towners, head on over to Ku. Serving up multiple DJs and topless bartenders it’s a no-brainer!
The Bridge Bar
The Clapham gays get a bad rep, which just ain’t fair! Come the weekend and you can be sure they’re the ones up on tables shaking their hairless, bleached buns like they’re Shakira. They work hard, and they play hard. An Easter weekend means work takes a back seat and playing hard takes a front seat. This new found freedom from their finance jobs is sure to send pandemonium through the streets of Clapham, and nowhere more than at The Bridge Bar. Welcoming DJs David Robson, Dominic, Paul Heron and Massimo, all weekend long is one long BENDER! Who KNOWS what you’ll get up to under these bricked arches. Monday’s being taken over by Scottish lady of the gilded thistle Vanity Von Glow (pictured) who’s serving up some Diva Bingo, with David Robson taking to the decks. Then nursing your elephantine hangover on Tuesday is the Bloodwise Charity Quiz with Quizeerascalremus, so you know EXACTLY how many brain cells you’ve killed with a weekend of drinking at The Bridge Bar.
The Old Ship
There’s something that feels so wholesome about seeing all those bunnies and baby chicks in every shop window. What you need is somewhere to grab a few wholesome drinks in a friendly queer local. The Old Ship is the East End’s answer to a country pub, with a few queens thrown in. On Saturday Night they have living legend Dave Lynn (pictured) taking the reigns for an evening of whipping her viper tongue. A tough act to follow, but if anyone can follow Lynn is multi-talented trio The Vixens can, taking to the stage on Sunday Night. They’ve been knocking their stilettos across the London scene for almost four years, and their shows are NOT to be missed. When you’re feeling a little worse for wear on a Monday evening and need a kind bosom to lay upon, then Tiffaney Wells on a Monday Night has her breast at the ready. If you’re looking to escape Central’s bustle this weekend but still get boozy with some queens then The Old Ship is where you should be heading.
You know what a bank holiday weekend gives you? FREEDOM! You’re not spending Friday night negotiating how wasted you can get because you’re in early on Monday. For four whole days, you can pretend that the 9 to 5 doesn’t exist. Kick back with a few cocktails at Freedom Bar who are keeping their doors open until 3am all weekend long! Grab a half price cocktail if you arrive before 8pm, and stick around until Monday morning. Sure, Monday’s going to be hell nursing your four night Tom Collins bender, but it’ll be damn worth it! Head over for Kinky Kabaret in the evening and have some crooning West End performers soothe all that ails you.
