Village Soho Description

Village Soho is featured in these Guides:

Nestled on the junction between Wardour Street and Old Compton Street sits Village gay bar, which opened in 1991. Village has a very mixed crowd and an appealing combination of being a party venue and somewhere to relax and get cosy with a date. On the ground floor and basement, you can dance the night away to pop, chart and house music. Head upstairs to the lounge where you'll find another bar with booths, chandeliers and a birds-eye view of all the action on Old Compton Street. On the weekends, gorgeous Go-Go boys dance on the bar along and sassy resident DJs provide the soundtrack to your night. Top tip: Happy Hour is from 5pm-9pm everyday with 50% off selected drinks and cocktails.

“This is the worst place in London to go. Toilets with graffiti about lesbians!! Cheap offers and cheap service!! Disgusted! All I ask for is a place with OK service, a bit of air con, and door staff that treat you with respect not attitude. This place is a joke!!!!”

“Was there 2nite, been ages and there is a reason why it has been so long. Dont bother. Worked in a few bars in my life and i would never dream of serving a dog the way in which the bar staff pull a pint. Maybe its me but hey 3£.50 a pint? not a please or thank you and dirty smelling toilets? Have a drink and see for yourself. ”

“Horrible place. The bar staff have an appalling attitude. Takes an age to get served because there only ever seems to be one bar person on even at busy times! I actively avoid the place. You get sick of being moved around by the obviously bored security staff. Decor is very dated too. ”

“A must! The cutest bartenders, the cutest go-go's, the cutests managers and the cutest securities!! The view from the top bar is amazing and the Karaoke is back. Cheap drinks till 8 and always happy crowd. I love the music, especially at the weekends when the dj's come to play. The service is great and the staff is really nice, i've made some good friends there. I live it & love it. No doubts- it's the heart of soho!! Roberto”

“The village is the hottest place in Soho. Yes the staff are arrogant, but it's the best place to meet new people, have fun, great for people watching, great strip shows, happy hour until eight... if you go to only one place in London, that's the one to go to!”

“AFTER AVOIDING THE VILLAGE FOR A WHILE I MUST ADMIT THAT I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED WHEN I WENT IN THE OTHER FRIDAY! IT HAS DEFINETELY CHANGED SINCE MY LAST VISIT! VERY FRIENDLY STAFF ( CUTE TOO!!! ) BEHIND THE BAR AND THE DECOR WAS VERY INVITING! THEY NOW HAVE A DOWNSTAIRS AREA WITH SORT OF MORROCAN FEEL ABOUT IT! ALSO A DANCEFLOOR WITH A DJ TO MATCH THE STANDARDS OF ANY BIG GAY CLUB IN LONDON ( SPOKE TO HIM AND HE WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND EVEN PLAYED A COUPLE OF TRACKS WE ASKED HIM FOR! HIS DJ NAME WAS SORDID SOUNDZ AND PLAYS THERE EVERY FRIDAY! CHECK HIM OUT! ) ALSO HAD DRINKS PROMOTIONS GOING ON WHICH WERE EXCELLENT VALUE! JUST AS WE WERE ABOUT TO LEAVE NOTICED THEY HAD SOME GEORGEOUS GOGO BOYS DANCING ON TOP OF THE BARS SO ENDED UP STAYING A WHILE LONGER!!!! DEFINETELY THE PLACE TO BE ON A FRIDAY NIGHT! I'LL BE MAKING A WEEKLY VISIT FOR SURE!!!”

“Had a fabulous evening in village last Saturday- payed only £3 for admission and once inside was amazed by the very cute gogo dancers! As far as cheesy soho gay bars go- i would rather spend my time and cash in this one. Arrogant bartenders yes- bland- most definately not!”

“HEY GUYS, I used to work in The Village 2 years ago! That was the time were Village was good, good staff and brilliant atmosphere! Every night was ever so busy and tips were unbelievble! Now, it''s shallow, depressing and attitudy! Come on Rico (the manager) you can do better, bring that place back to his old glory!”

“i would like to say thankyou to the people who have reviewed this pub. i havent been in before and after reading these i dont think i will either. i have no objection for pubs/clubs for charging high door prices and drink prices, if its worth it, not just because its in london. come on management it seems you have a lot to do!!! i organise drinking trips for my friends to sample ''''gay life'''' in other parts of england.”

“Sorry boys, but this place is positively painful. Don't get me wrong, I love a cheesey gay bar as much as the next guy, but this place has nothing. Atmosphere? I was considering asking the bar staff for a cork-screw so I could perform a lobotomy on myself, but I doubted the venue had such an implement, and I certainly doubted that the 12 year old serving me knew what one was. Many better venues near bye for boys and girls who like a touch of class with there homosexuality. x”

“The Village is one of the most realaxed and attitude free bars in Soho. The bar staff is friendly and and the prices are some of the lowest in the West End. The fact that there are four bars means that there are various options each with a different atmosphere. This is a highly recomendable bar, especially if you are tired of stuck up people with a bad attitude.”

“I can't express what a terrible place this is. The service is absolutely terrible. My friend and I ordered a platter and the terrible 16 yr old bar steward took our money but no food. We waited and waited. We are still waiting..”
