Not what it used to be at all. Not worth the price you pay. That's if you can even get past the rude arrogant door staff. Never seen such a bad attitude. Trust me, these guys are killing what used to be a great place to go. Save your money and go elsewhere

I suppose I should bear in mind that I live and socialise in London but I still can't quite get over how inexpensive Cruz 101 actually is, even on a Friday or Saturday night. I can only speak for my experience but found the door supervisors, door and bar staff to all be cheerful, friendly and up for a chat... More

The bouncers need to come bk down to earth and stop judging everyone as soon as they seem them, well it gives them a purpose in life I suppose

The doorstaff are some of the rudest and most aggressive I have encountered and have a very outdated, prejudiced and ridiculous view that all gay and bi men should be camp and flouncy. Every time I have attempted to get in I am subjected to a grilling whereby I have to prove my sexuality, which is embarrassing and stressful. The... More

Crux is a bit of a trashy sort of place. I've been here 4 times over the past 6 years and it hasn't changed at all. They have their formula for giving a certain type of gays a good night and that's that - they won't change their model just because some don't like it. Cruz is quite big -... More

Wandered over to Cruz 101 for a few drinks on a Friday night, the bouncers were really rude, reminding us that it was a gay venue as we queued. Given that I live in the area & am gay I was basically left standing in the rain trying to convince a complete stranger of my sexuality which I found very... More
