    De los mejores clubs que he ido, muy buen ambiente y buena música, volvería a ir

    Gone a little downhill. Too much attitude going on, and getting overpriced.

    Renowned for its gay nights and tough door policy, I actually visited for Boys Noize Rec 10th birthday party, impressed by the space under the arches and the killer soundsystem!

  • Zach S.

    Amazing club. Several dance floors, coat check and cheap drinks.

    Balada gay muito divertida! Mas a dica é passar na GAY e pegar a pulseira pra entrar de graça!

  • Sven H.

    Most famous gay club in London - a landmark for all gay men. Get your free entry wristband from G-A-Y Bar on Old Compton Street, Soho.

    Musique généraliste et tubes des années 90-80 ! Service rapide au bar ! Deux salles immenses avec estrades ! Toilettes propres

    Every night has a slightly different kind of music playing in each of the four dance floors, which is nice if you like variety. The place is huge and some bartenders are assholes, but it's great fun.

    The place is huge and the music is good. I enjoyed the big amount of people you can find there. The drinks are quite expensive though.

    Great gigs, good people, beer choice should be changed.. Seriously.

    Love the music the atmosphere and the people look fun in general. Staff is really slow.

    Queues can be insane here, but fun place to party. Drinks are on the measly side for what you pay. Random music acts turn up all the time.

    so so so fab. 👌

    You can be as queer as a field of rainbow tents and you'll still get palmed off with the 'members only' line if you don't adhere to archaic notions of queer presentation. Avoid if a femme woman.

    It's heaven!!

    Commercial pop music, bad sound system, but hey, it's Heaven, they're cute boys and it's quite amazing. Love the chill zone.

    Monday night POPCORN is the only party worth going to.. everything else G.A.Y. related avoid it at all costs!

    Most popular Gay Club in London, it's very busy most days and has many rooms including House music, R&B and Pop. The security/staff members are nice but the security like to frisk more than usual.

  • Shane A.

    Here for G-A-Y? There's a queue either side of the entrance door. Take the shortest one, not the first one you come across.

    Brilliant ...

    Bonne ambiance, super son, et le lundi la boîte est ouverte à tous (boîte gay le reste du temps)

  • Brad H.

    Lame. Lame. Lame. Nice dance floor but the drinks are not going to get u tipsy especially the hard liquor. Save your pounds. Cheers to somewhere else.

    Brad Homer · July 23, 2013
  • Anton P.

    Run up to Old Compton Street before hand and get a wristband for cheap entry.

    Anton Perreau · July 10, 2013
  • Huseyin O.

    Brilliant place for a brilliant night out... Gets really busy and packed in there though - you get some bitchy guys with major attitude problems. Other than that, id recommend it

    Melhor boite de Londres!!! Vale cada libra... Divirta-se!!!

    If you go for a concert, acoustics are terrible :-(((

    The stairway to the Pop Room upstairs always smells like shit. Truth.

  • Omur O.

    Very friendly staff, inexpensive prices, fantastic venues ranging from elevated great dance floors to lodges to cool down. Ventilation is really good by the way.

    Omur Ortaovali · September 1, 2012
  • Stephen M.

    Tons to explore here. Look around for a second floor (with less cheesy music), a cool balcony in the main hall, and even an arcade!

    Stephen McVerry · July 17, 2012

    This is where in 1983 Frankie Goes to Hollywood filmed their "Relax" video! G-A-Y always proves a fun evening

    DP is where it's at!

    GAY at Heaven on a Saturday night us awful...avoid. The staff are rude and the service leaves a lot to be desired. There are better places to visit.

    Great gay club, with the opportunity to get a live performance on Saturdays.

    The Porn Idol night is so fun!

    Yves Wu · November 11, 2011
  • Natasha 'Tashster'

    You are assured a great night out at this club. One of the true gay clubs you can go to but watch out for the odd sleazebag who attempts to try their luck anyway!

    Natasha 'Tashster' · November 2, 2011
  • Andrew S.

    Make sure you get your free/£1 entry wristband from G-A-Y Bar or outside Ku first on a Friday or Saturday night

    Andrew Sharpe · October 28, 2011
  • Wesley V.

    Go here for awesome concerts, or if you're into gay clubs go here any other night when there aren't awesome concerts.
