Where To Meet Gay Men in London

The gay scene in London has been out, loud and proud for a while now. Since it became acceptable for guys to kiss guys, and for gay couples to hold hands in public, London has provided its gay community with a boatload of gay friendly bars, restaurants, clubs, and club nights. Obviously Soho comes top of the list for gay bars in London but look a little further and you’ll find plenty of options for gay friendly nights out outside of the centre.

Best Soho Dating Spots

Whatever your tastes are, there’s definitely a place in London where you and your date can go out and have a smashing time together. If drinking shots, cheap wine and dancing with topless hunks is your thing, check out The Village. At The Village, dress code is anything-goes and 7pm til 9pm is ‘silly hour’ when you can grab a bottle of wine for well under a tenner.

If something a bit more refined id to your taste, The Green Carnation is the perfect antidote to the hype of other gay dating spots in the area. Climb the narrow stairs and chill out in one of the huge plush sofas. No one will bat an eyelid at your antics here; the drinks menu is pretty extensive too.

East End Haunts for hot, trendy guys

It’s pretty well known that the hipsters in East London are an accepting lot. Even the strait guys go out wearing pink legging and glittery tops here so you’d better push the boat out a bit if you want to stand out from the crowd. For late night debauchery, cheap drinks, and the hippest gay crowd in all of the UK, head to The Joiners Arms on Hackney Road.

If embracing a very camp night is on the agenda for you and your date, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club is the only place in the east for you. This place has drag acts, cabaret, burlesque nights and much more. Try the twice monthly club night Sink the Pink where you can dolled up at the aptly names Glitter my Sh*tter stand!

Go West for posh men

The west end is usually a little more refined than Soho and Hackney so it’s probably best to leave your PVC hot pants at home. If you and your gay date are planning a night out west though, what better than a night at a musical? Wizard of Oz, anyone? For post theatre drinks, or a pre theatre game of bingo, checkout The Vauxhall Tavern, which is a well-known gay friendly pub, just south of the river.

Up North for gentlemen

If you want to go incognito and blend into the crowd, it can’t get much easier than in Camden. Head off to The Black Cat, a nifty little place that has been frequented by gay gentleman since the beginning of last century. If up market Islington appeals to you more, The Green; its famous for having very hot barmen too who like to chat to new guys in town.
