London Bars & Clubs.
The London scene can really be really looked at as 3 distinct areas.
The traditional gay area of Soho, which centres around the famous Old Compton street, is still the main hub of gay bars
in London. Soho is world famous for it's bars and cafe culture, with some cool shopping thrown in too.
10 years ago more and more clubs were opened up south of the river in Vauxhall, which can
be dubbed as the second 'Gay Village' of London. This is where the party set, club kids, bears, muscle guys and just
about anyone else come to let the weekend get wild. And Vauxhall does just that. Home
to some of the most legendary nights and superclubs in London, Vauxhall will guarantee you a night you won't forget. Clubs
such as Fire, Area, and the Colesseum host some of the most talked about club nights in London. Parties regularly go on all
weekend, and the scene here just never stops. Whether you're in the capital for a weekend, or a year, you will be drawn
to here, and we did warn you, you will be back again and again.
