Soho’s world-famous G-A-Y Bar has everything you’d expect: cheap drink offers, a young crowd and plenty of Britney. The G-A-Y night at Heaven gets the celebrity cameos, but this popular bar is still a shrine to queer pop idols, with nightly drinks promos every time they play a video from the current diva du jour. There’s also a women’s bar in the basement, called (delightfully) Girls Go Down – popular with flirty, studenty lesbians, loathed by most older women. G-A-Y bar’s plush late-night sibling, G-A-Y Late, is round the corner at 5 Goslett Yard.
Smack-bang in the middle of the West End, the great selection of Soho clubs gives the area a bustling nightlife scene and attracts a massive influx of revellers. Tourists, bar crawlers, club kids, glamour kittens and gay-scene posers can all find clubs in Soho to accommodate them in this diverse scene. Whether you fancy the scandalous cabaret vibe of The Box or the raucous hoedown of Gaz's Rockin' Blues club, Time Out's guide to clubs in Soho has you covered.
