GO Gay Bars in Central London

Gay bars in Central London One of the best bars to sum up the gay scene in Central London is the fresh and funky Bar Aqua [map], Maiden Lane. In the heart of Covent Garden Bar Aqua has light and airy décor and a young and bright clientele. This is a hidden treasure and the perfect place for a simple meal or a fun night out after dark.

First Out [map], St. Giles High Street, invites a mixed crowd of gay and lesbians to experience great drinks offers and fancy food including a bounty of desserts and cakes. This intimate venue can get very rowdy, particularly during the summer months.

Halfway 2 Heaven [map], Duncannon Street, is one of those classic trendy bars and the perfect venue to while away a few hours after a hectic day of shopping.

For a taste of Chinatown pop over to West Central [map] at Lisle Street, which is one of the more established gay bars. Offering a real mix of people and therefore able to appeal to all budgets, West Central is the place to begin your evening adventure on a Friday or Saturday night.

The stylish, yet simple, surroundings of Kudos [map], Adelaide St, provides young gay businessmen and celebrities with a place to socialise and chill out. Regularly voted the best gay venue in London, Kudos continues to ooze continental charm.

The Retro Bar [map], 2 George Court, The Strand, is a great indie and pop bar offering music from the 70s and 80s and is a lively place in which to socialise or start your night in style.

One of London’s most famous gay bars Brief Encounter [map] is located at St Martin’s Lane, and has undergone a face lift since its infamous days as the home of society scandal in the 1970s and 1980s. Now Brief Encounter is an altogether more respectable affair but still provides the warm-up drinks for those heading to Heaven later in the evening.

Vespa Lounge, Upstairs at Conservatory Bar [map], St Giles High St is one of the few exclusive lesbian venues and is a great place to socialise in the women-only environment. Men are admitted as guests.
