North and East London

The UK’s longest-running gay leather & fetish club. Now in its 30th year, The Backstreet’s door policy is as strict as ever, earning the respect and continued patronage of those who are dedicated to rubber and leather.

Don’t even think of wearing trainers or slacks. Leather or rubber should be the most prominent part of your outfit – although tee shirts and denim may play supporting roles!

Open Thursdays to Sundays with special events: BLUF and IGNITE (for smokers). Entrance is located along a path leading off Burdett Road.

A large immersive private hire play space in central London with an industrial-theme, The Bunker London is definitely not to be confused with a standard cruise bar or club venue.

The Bunker London is exciting and slightly scary, appealing to fetish enthusiasts and men who like to play hard. Facilities include an electric hoist, sling, benches for spanking or fisting, a leather sleep sack and further bondage and impact equipment, plus private shower and wash facilities on site.

Available for private hire only 24/7 – by appointment only, which can be made via The Bunker London website. Make sure you sign up to The Bunker London mailing list here, for updates and offers.
