Soho & Central London

Soho is home to some of London’s best known gay bars, many located on or close to Old Compton Street, Rupert Street and Wardour Street.

It’s a lively place to visit any time – day or night – with a excellent choice of shops, cafés, juice bars, restaurant and bistros. Caffe Nero (corner of Frith Street and Old Compton Street) is one of the most popular hang out spots during the day – a great place for people watching.

Coronavirus Update: G-A-Y bar has redesigned its bar to offer social distancing within the venue. Read below for further information and revised opening times. G-A-Y Outside Re-openings From Monday 12th April G-A-Y Bar: 30 Old Compton Street 12pm - 11pm

Part of the fabric of gay London and a must-visit for anyone wanting to hit the tourist trail in London. G-A-Y Bar is a place for fun-loving young crowd most nights of the week, located in the heart of Soho.

The venue has 3 floors. Upstairs can be far more popular than the ground floor during the week as it has a small outdoor terrace (usually full of smokers). The basement is slightly more chic.

Packed at the weekend. Everyone is frisked on the way in.

Coronavirus Update: Social distancing in place. Rupert Street is operating a first come, first served basis. Once full the bar will offer takeaway. You will be able to stand outside the bar, but social distancing measures must be adhered to at all times.

Another very popular gay bar located right in the middle of Soho.

Rupert Street serves food (burgers, etc.) and drinks during the day but is packed with the party crowd in the evening, spilling over onto the street during the summer.

Plenty of eye candy both in front and behind the bar. Rupert Street brings in some pretty good DJ’s to play live every Friday and Saturday night.

Set back from Rupert Street with its own private courtyard with outdoor heaters, The Yard is particularly popular with those who still like to smoke.

Inside (as with all other pubs in the UK, strictly no smoking), the original brickwork, wooden beams and the gorgeous bar staff are exposed. In the case of the bar staff, we mean shirtless.

The Yard is one of the most stylish gay venues in Soho and a firm favourite of ours. They can even host private parties in their upstairs bar. The entrance is directly opposite the Rupert Street bar.

Coronavirus Update: Social distancing in force. Bookings recommended via Comptons of Soho's website.

Located in what used to be a Victorian hotel, Comptons of Soho had become a pub called ‘The Swiss Tavern’ in the 1950s and acquired a reputation as being a meeting place for gay men which was illegal at the time.

In 1986, the name was changed to “Comptons of Soho” and it came out in the open as being a gay bar. Over 25 years later, Comptons is still regarded as one of the most popular gay pubs in London.

Attracts a more mature, beer-drinking crowd than found in some of the other gay bars in Soho.

Traditional English gay pub in the heart of Soho, named after Admiral Adam Duncan who defeated the Dutch fleet in 1797.

Inside the bar is a chandelier in memory of the 3 people killed and 70 injured in the 1999 attack by a neo-Nazi who attempted (and failed) to stir up homophobic tensions in London.

The attack marked a turning point in the relationship between the police, local government and gay community which became closer and stronger than ever. All gay tourists to London should pay at least one visit to this historic gay bar.
