Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Tucked away down an alley off the Strand, the Retro Bar is one of LGBTQ+ London’s secret pearls. It’s a small, gloriously old-fashioned indie bar where anyone on the LGBTQ+ spectrum will feel welcome as they drink and listen to Blondie and Bowie blaring out of the jukebox. If the nostalgic tunes don’t give you a warm glow, the cosy decor surely will: the walls are filled with iconic photos of everyone from Boy George to Beth Ditto. The quieter upstairs bar is a good date spot, although it’s not open every night.
