    A gay lgbt bar in the heart of Soho. Monday nights are £2.50 a pint. No free wifi. Outdoor standing area. No food served.

    The upstairs bar has been improved and is often quieter than downstairs so you'll get served quicker.

    It's a nice place for a gay people. I mean it's quite and relax at lunch time. You won't find the stupid crazy young gays at evenings and probably you'll get a nice chat with someone. Hot staff!

    Comptons Bar is one of THE socialising point for LGBT. Lovely service, ~20 beer brands. Old British Pub Style.

    Toilets now unisex so no urinals. Don't worry though there's never any girls in there...

    If you ask nicely, they'll let you use one of the many electric sockets around on the walls, to plug in your phone/laptop charger.

    Try Wong Kei's restaurant just around corner from Comptons for a good meal (41-43 Wardour Street) - but be prepared to be insulted by the staff.

    Dimly lit, wood-panelled and bare floored, Compton's is about as manly as a gay bar gets, its pumping Europop soundtrack the only concession to the frothier elements of the scene. Read more

    Don't order Guinness. It always taste bad. Stick with bottled beers.

    You wont find pretty boys here, more of manly scene, but you WILL find cheap, strong drinks.
