The Shadow Lounge
Soho / Bar / Club /

Deemed Soho's best late night venue, this exclusive gay members club welcomes you with fibre-optic ceilings, mirrored walls and a huge dance floor edged with private booths for relaxing. Its revamped interior is clean, luxurious and glamorous, ticking all the boxes for a sophisticated Soho-go-to. With just a small selection of curries to choose from, it's fairly slim pickings when it comes to food, though their lively cocktail menu won't disappoint. Open Monday to Saturday from 9pm until 3am, this place fills up fast, so it's worth putting your name on the guest list or booking a table - or if you want the full ticket, this is one membership card worth having in your wallet.

Soho / Bar /

The original and some would say the best, Village is the throbbing heart of Soho?s gay scene. Established way back in 1991, when the millennium saw it down at heels a bit. Now it's restored it?s former freshness. Village caters for an eclectic crowd of regulars, tourists and everyone in between with daytime food and nighttime go-go boys. Come on a Saturday to down Jaeger-bombs and get ready to throw your best shapes to candy pop classics. Contact Village Soho directly

2 Brewers
Clapham / Bar /

The Two Brewers in Clapham is a bar and club that hosts giant, glitter-speckled cabaret and drag nights and a music policy that can be accurately described as cheese at it?s finest. A rowdy crowd gets warmed up on drop shots for a night?s crazy dancing among an unpretentious mix of clientele. The Two Brewers attracts amazing talent for it?s regular shows if the Macarena isn?t your thing. Contact 2 Brewers directly

Dalston Superstore
Dalston / Bar /

The Dalston Superstore sits slap bang in the middle of Dalston?s party strip, beloved by hipsters for achingly-cool nights like Jam (a ?night out for lesbians and their gay boyfriends ?playing sleaze to pleaze?). Come for an all night session of debauchery in the centre of party land: East London. Not limited to just parties, you can also bag tasty brunch in the day time and get your culture fix at one of the regular exhibitions on site.  Contact Dalston Superstore directly
