Moved to London at little over 12 months ago and haven't looked back since. I'm still discovering the sights and sounds of this wonderful international city.

  • Probably the best regular Saturday night out for gay men in London
    Whilst ostensibly a bears night, XXL attracts a broad crowd from bears to displaced Vauxhall shirts-off muscle clubbers. The music in the main room may be a bit heavy on The Freemasons for some and this is not the place to hear cutting edge sounds, but overall this a great night out. Pulse is of a good size with spacious bar areas and an attitude free crowd. There is also a dark room which is a rarity for the UK. At a time when London's gay clubs have experienced mixed fortunes, XXL is now probably the most consistently reliable Saturday club night for all gay men in London. For anyone new to, or visiting, London this a great club to meet people.

  • ukflyer gave * to Apollon
    Not quite fulfilling its potential, but worth a look
    I visited this club on a Saturday night, which is dedicated to house music. The club was certainly busy enough. The crowd was almost exclusively male and mainly late 20s/early 30s and more shirts-on, than shirts-off. It's a nice venue with good lighting. However, the placement of the DJ box above a LED screen on the mezzanine floor does detach the DJ from the crowd. For a Saturday night, I think a bit more in terms of production (go-go dancers etc) is warranted. Overall, it's a nice venue, and worth considering a visit. But it's not quite a place to lose yourself on a Saturday night.

  • ukflyer gave * to Sweatbox in London
    A younger crowd than other London saunas
    Sweatbox is at pains to market itself as different from other London saunas. In some respects it is. The crowd is generally younger and with regular parties featuring DJs and appearances by porn stars they do at least try harder than other venues. The choice of black paint and red lighting makes it hard to judge the quality of the fit out and cleanliness, but I think Pleasuredrome has a much higher spec fit out. If you get frustrated at the older and, to be brutally honest, sometimes seriously out of shape and slightly desperate patrons that other saunas can attract then Sweatbox may appeal, but the younger crowd can be more reticent. I don't think Sweatbox will really change anyone's perceptions of saunas, but if they appeal to you, this is worth checking out. One complaint is that the towels are made of synthetic materials rather than cotton. Also note that various types of passes (48 hour) are available and a small deposit is also required for your locker key.
