Rupert Street has to be my favourite trendy bar in the Soho area. The venue is modern, spacious and a good place to go out for the evening. I think it's technically a gay bar but well recommended for anyone in their 20's or 30's. There's good beers, a whole menu of cocktails and champagne.

Disappointing. Asked for a double gin and slimline tonic. The tonic was flat and tasted pretty foul. On asking the barman to change the drink, he was just surly and said essentially that's the way they come (without tasting). Been going for approx 19 years, bye!!!!

Waltz in here without realising it was a gay bar, not that that would ever matter, the decor was beautiful and everyone was lovely and friendly, one young man who told me he was new working there was very friendly and just a genuinely lovely guy. The drinks were 2-4-1 so we made the most of the mojitos which were... More

Easily the best gay bar in London, probably in Europe. Very popular with professionals, fits neatly in the middle of age groups - so not really young and not older. Popular with guys in their 20s, 30s, 40s. Very international and cosmopolitan. It's pretty friendly too. Rupert Street bar is on the street of the same name, just off Shaftesbury... More

Staff need to smile a bit more and give better service. Asked for gin and tonic and got a double. When I said I didn't ask for double had attitude. Nice bar, just train staff better or chance them. Work in hotels myself, staff will wreck your business.!

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
