It's a shame but this is a bit of a relic to and an example of why gay bars are a little out of time these days. Catering for the older crowd it seems stuck in a time warp and although we enjoyed a few drinks here it needs to move on a bit.

If you want to be sexually assaulted by customers that are 70 + then go. Informed the manager and he just laughed and said it was what happens here. He then went and talked and laughed with the people that did it. DISGUSTING!!!! I will definitely be taking this further!

Kinda dingy. Drinks on the pricey side. The ventilation duct was vibrating irritatingly above our heads. I'd say skip it.

I am afraid I have to agree with patrick o. This used to be a near-legendary venue, a cruisy and busy gay bar catering for the age ranges that had grown out of their Soho years (charmingly nicknamed 'Elephant's Graveyard' for that reason), and still wanted the occasional fun night out - maybe along with a few younger patrons, representing...

This used to be a great gay venue, with mainly older clientele, and always crowded. Last Saturday it was dire. Just six customers dotted about the place, despite outside heaving with people on a very hot and traffic-ridden Oxford Street. I was charged £2.20 for a small glass of Coke which wasn't even filled beyond four fifths full. What a... More

We found this pub after a long say out and about in London. Clean and tidy, helpful staff, music was just loud enough but not obtrusive, stayed for a few drinks. Be warned the side street is like a wind tunnel.. But in the summer it will be a welcome relief from the heat.

This place seemed really empty when I entered, even though most of the tables were taken. Interior design would need to be redone! The variety of beverages are average at best and the bar staff polite. The kitchen seemed to be closed by time I got there. The clientel seemed to be relatively nice and the location are really great... More

Nice little cabaret bar, popular with an older crowd. Don't look too closely and you won't see the (I'm hoping they are legal) boys keeping the older men company and escorting them downstairs after a drink or two. As such I probably wouldn't eat there... But for a non-offensive drag queen show Tuesday nights is fun...

Went for a drink on the saturday night.. the doormen were careful to warn us (MrsMG and I) that it was a Gay pub...we're comfortable with that...decent enough beer and wines, but really the place is a bit of a mess... the loos need a total refurb... Did, however go back the following night (Sunday) to see the Drag act...... More
