Travel Gay Community Reviews and Discussion Leave Review

  1. B Brendan
    Not tourist friendly

    “My second time trying in 6months , not a place to go if your not a local“

  2. N Nasko
    They did not let me in

    “Doorman asked me if I am regular, I said I am a tourist and he said this place is for a regular crowd only.“

  3. J Joe

    “I've been in GAY a few times but this time they didn't let me or my bf in because I didn't match what a gay man should look like. Don't go to this place they don't support gay people.“

  4. S Stewart

    “Doormen never let us in ( we're both over 40 ) it's become a joke with us, luckily there are plenty other places in the Village that will happily take our money.“

  5. A Anne
    Very disappointed

    “Couldn't get passed the front door
    Was was dressed smart and only had a couple of drinks
    Door staff said I had to know someone inside to get in“

  6. U Ugo

    “Guys, put some hand dryers on your wc pleeeaasssee! Not only I believe is more ecological and is it was really annoying having your member of staff asking me (after handing me paper to dry my hands) why I don't leave any coins. Do I really have to be in this situation where I have to explain that I normally don't have money with me as I pay pretty much everything by card/ Apple Pay?? Really?“

  7. G George
    Useless Doormen

    “Everytime I want to go there to have some fun and enjoy night out, doormen saying, sorry regulars only. Very disappointed!!!“

  8. J Jake
    Rude staff

    “This place needs a reality check. Couldn't get past the doormen, I was sober and dressed smart. They said it was members only, the next two got in without showing a members card???? I asked was it because I didn't look gay? My friend turned up which knew one of the bouncers and I was ushered straight in.
    I kept an open mind but had to leave, the smell of the carpets and rude bar staff are enough to never go back again.“

  9. J John
    Great venue

    “I was in two minds whether to bother or not.I used to go to G.A.Y years ago when I lived in London. I have to say for me it fulfilled my expectations and in some ways surpassed them. I'd heard it wasn't that friendly there but actually I thought it was great. Lots of fun, good music, mixed crowd girls, guys, young, not so young all just getting on with having a good time. Nice integrated bar/club definitely go again even though it is over 60 miles away. Maybe not for every gay man, maybe not for every weekend. Worth the effort.“
