The Yard Bar

57 Rupert Street, London, United Kingdom, W1D 7PL  map 

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 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 favorite of ours. They can even host private parties in their upstairs bar. The entrance is directly opposite the Rupert Street bar.

Travel Gay Reviews of The Yard BarLeave Review

  1. A Antony
    Expensive drinks and rude staff. They charged twice for a round.

    “Visited 24/4/19 - The gin was served in a very small glass. I asked for a bigger glass with more tonic. The staff gave a bigger glass, but then charged my card twice. Will never go back here again.“

  2. D David

    “Have nothing against straight people in gay venues but last 2 times I went gay people were in the minority.“

  3. R Robbie
    Monday evening visit

    “Have not been to The Yard for a while, but visited on Monday 15th around 7pm, for a quick drink before dinner at the nearby Balans. Have to say that it was much more enjoyable that previous visits - full, but still manged to get a seat, no queue at the bar. Really nice Vibe. Only thing to watch out for is that the bar serves doubles unless you ask for a single. One pint of beer, a pint of cider and a (double) gin a tonic came to £16.80...“

    Developers keep away!

    “The best gay bar in London, by more than a yard - at least mile. Let hope those sneaky, moneygrabbing developers keep their hands off The Yard.“

  5. J Josh
    Favourite Bar

    “Don't normally write a reviews, but as a regular at The Yard for more years than I care to remember, I just wanted to say that this is certainly one of the best gay bars in London. The "enclosed" outdoor terrace means its a lot more spacious than others like the Village. Stylish, great ambiance and friendly staff attracting a great mix of mostly gay customers.“
