Just went for a small visit to show my daughter the area and to see the colour. Not as bright as I had hoped, but one senses the warmth of the place

You should clean up a lot better the whole place stunk of urine and the staff were extremely rude especially the door staff. I would not recommend this place. I absolutely love the gay village but G, A. Y has by far got to be the worst place there. Every time I have been there I have regretted going but due to my friends wanting to go I have painfully had to step foot in this place which we all wished we really didn't bother. We last went on the, Friday 24th July 2020 and it was a diarrhea experience. Not only did I witness the doorman selling drugs to several people, but when I went to the toilets their were people sniffing drugs off the sink which the doorman did nothing about it. I was amazed to witness this whilst waiting to actually go the toilet. Worst place by far full of chavs and lots of arguments going on stopping you enjoying your night. I wouldn't even give this place a 1star rating.

I have nothing against gay people and in this city the community has a respectable and not over-promoted presence. In the course of a walkabout to pass a couple of hours I wandered through this area. Several bars, cafes, restaurants, all probably providing a good service - others will judge. But the area seemed to be generally run-down, though it certainly did not feel in any way "unsafe". If it wants to present itself as alternative to Chinatown, it will need to spruce itself up. Not as smart as I recall from the last time I was this way 16 years ago. One interesting building I visited was the Crown Court, an impressive looking building with a massive tower, a bit like a huge church. But again this building could do with a scrub-up and lick of paint.
