    Authentic bar with fantastic drag.
    In March I visited London and the AD and saw Sandra perform. It was so good we came back in April just to see her perform again.
    The bar was brilliant. Friendly customers who are out to have a good time and enjoy life. Such an uplifting place to be.

    The staff were incredibly welcoming, making us feel right at home despite the bustling environment. Their attentiveness and friendly demeanor added a personal touch to our visit, making us feel valued and well taken care of.

    Great drinks and servers! I had a lovely bartender called Joe who was super fast and attentive! The atmosphere at the bar was definitely the highlight of my trip to the bar. Fun & accommodating

    Nothing saddens me like regression. Here is Theo happy as can be with me enjoying cabaret at Halfway To Heaven

    Fast forward a few months and suddenly he is not welcome.

    He is 💯 happier with me than he would be at home alone.

    Very frustrating when venues project reason like “it’s too loud for dogs” - this is subjective and down to the owner to decide.

    I love Halfway, always have - it’s a fantastic cabaret venue - but ludicrous policy changes like this aren’t the way forward.

    I've been to Zodiac bar several times over the year and always found it a very pleasant kind atmosphere with friendly pleasant bar staff and last night was no exception. I hired out the downstairs and got a very good rate. The excellent wifi meant I was able to play my own music without any issue. Had an absolutely brilliant time; I'd definitely recommend this excllent bar.

    Very rude door staff, refused to let the majority of our party in because they didn’t “look gay”, forcibly removed many of us from the queue and called over their colleagues to back them up. Generally a rude and entitled atttiude from the bouncers, who used foul language and believed they were above reproach.

    We came here for an after work drink for a leaving do, we had a great evening and mainly down to the staff. The owner introduced himself and was very welcoming and had a great deal on drinks. The music was good, drinks good, great space and a brilliant dance floor. Highly recommend it if you work in the Holborn area.

    A beguiling, alternative London gay bar. We didn’t feel cool enough but had a good time watching Drag-A-Long’s Wicked. The cocktail I ordered was mind-blowingly strong, haha.

    We firs have been to the Exilio in last summer where we had best Latino party ever, the music was just excellent, service and staff absolutely friendly. That’s why decided that we will become regulars when we like to have Latino dance. We really recommend. Even if is a LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 club everyone is welcome here who like to dance 💃 and have fun. Really good atmosphere.

    Sound is right in the heart of Leicester Square. Queues are always inevitable but there are ways of skipping, hehe. Staff are friendly, maybe a little too friendly!! There are 3 floors for us commoners. First floor which is located on floor 3 is mostly a mix of dance, chart, pop, hip-hop and cheese. Second floor which is on the 4th floor is a balcony floor overlooking the first floor. Finally on the 5th floor is an RnB, hip hop room overlooking the london eye. To use the bathroom you have to walk to the fifth floor (ridiculous). Drinks are pricey 2 vodka + 1 red bull £12.10, bottles are less than £4. Sound opens early and is usually open till 3-ish. If you're looking to go clubbing on a Sunday night try Sound as a lot of places aren't even open on a Sunday night. Mixed crowd in here, black, white, asian, mostly early 20's. We fly to London once a month and always go to Sound, its our "local". Trying to get out is a bit of a nightmare as everyone has to exit via the same stairs. Its quite dangerous as the queue barely moves because the cloakroom is at the end of this stairs. Usually there is a cloakroom on the third floor so its better to go there and skip the queue at the end of the night

    It’s not a fancy place so I don’t understand why the drinks are rather expensive.
    The staff are friendly.
    Not worth the price I’m afraid.
