art’otel edit: London’s best LGBTQ+ clubs & nights out


London’s hottest LGBTQ+ club nights

Welcome to the fabulous, frenetic world that is London’s LGBTQ+ nightlife. What was once limited to a small enclave within Soho now runs riot on every corner and street of the capital come sundown. As well as some awesome LGBTQ+-owned businesses, the city has a glorious spectrum of queer-friendly venues where glitter flies and inhibitions die. And because gatekeeping is so not on in 2024, here’s where you can find the city’s best LGBTQ+ clubs and nights out.

NIGHT OUT — Queer Bruk

London’s duttiest Black Queer night (their words, not ours) packs in an absolute banging mix of dancehall, afrobeats, soca, and house music. Regularly seen at the likes of Southbank Centre, Metropolis and Peckham Levels, this QTIPOC club night shines a light on the capital’s queer Afro-Caribbean community, creating a safe space to express black sexuality, ethnicity, gender and fluidities.

CLUB — Electrowerkz

A legend of London’s goth, fetish, cyber and leather scene, Electrowerkz runs on a ‘everyone is welcome’ policy. Hosting everything from old-school bear nights to queer art raves, its line-up of alternative parties entices any and all who want something darker on night’s out. The dress code? Whatever your wildest imaginations can dream up, so go big or go home.

The brainchild of Jodie Harsh and Little Gay Brother is just as loud and supersized as its creators. As a sea of sequin, lace and leather descends on Omeara every Friday, a mix of big beats and bubble-gum pop are pumped out until the early hours of the morning. If you’re staying until close, expect to see your fair share of skin. A go-to venue for those who want to sweat.

CLUB — Royal Vauxhall Tavern

As one of the city’s oldest pleasure palaces, Royal Vauxhall Tavern (RVT) is nothing but iconic. This pub-cum-queer performance venue has hosted everyone from the likes of Freddie Mercury and Princess Di to Lily Savage and Cara Delevingne. Leaning more towards the cabaret and drag scene, it typically attracts a slightly older crowd, with daddies, bears and leather aplenty.

NIGHT OUT — Horse Meat Disco

Never one to take themselves too seriously, Horse Meat Disco has been saying no to the Sunday scaries at Eagle London for over 20 years. Playing everything from punk-funk to discotheque, this all-inclusive queer party sees bears and butch alike descend to the dancefloor. A slick and sexy night out for homos, heteros and anyone who wants to stamp their own style on the club.

CLUB — Dalston Superstore

Serving burgers by day and big beats by night, Dalston Superstore has played home to its fair share of London’s maddest and messiest parties. A pansexual cocktail of eclectic crowds and electric DJs, regularly hosting the likes of Fèmmme Fraîche — a FLINTA-focused club night that’s heavy on house and techno — as well as SorryNotSorry — a monthly dose of everything pop.

NIGHT OUT — Butch, Please!

A stalwart of Clapham Grand, Butch, Please! celebrates the full spectrum within the lesbian community. From butch and femmes to non-binary and transgender, each event follows a simple mantra of ‘wear what you like, be nice, have a good time’, with leather parties and future-themed nights held every few months or so. Just don’t bring any cis-male partners and friends: they won’t be allowed in.

CLUB  — Ku Bar & Klub

We’d be remiss not to mention at least one club in the city’s OG gay capital. Drag parties, karaoke and all-night pop anthems are Ku Klub’s speciality, with an up-for-it vibe that’s similar to the likes of G-A-Y and Heaven nearby. Beneath the champagne bar, in the low-lit basement, resident DJs let loose with dance remixes that seduce you to stay long after you said you’d leave.

What’s on at Ku Bar

North or south of the river, London shouts loud and proud with LGBTQ+ bars, clubs and events. Whether you end up at art’otel London Battersea Power Station or art’otel London Hoxton after the lights come on, you’ll always come back to a safe space when you stay with us. And don’t worry about rushing to get out of bed the morning after. Breakfast is served until 11:00am and we’ve late checkout available too.
