Today:  Wilma Ballsdrop - CabaretTomorrow:  Baga Chipz - Cabaret

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.

    “Saturday night boozer for London's bears and "real" men. Friendly staff, decent beer and reasonable prices. Toilets can get a bit iffy as the nights progress.“
