Just saw new year 2020 in this amazing club, so much fun to be had in here! The club was warm and very friendly, with cheap drinks. Easy access and somewhere to leave your bag and coat. The club has a varied clientele and was impressed by the facilities. Will defo be back here to enjoy the company of like minded guys. Very much a place to relax and enjoy life in. LOVED IT

Beautiful place. Always pleasant music, a peculiar atmosphere and friendly waiters and bartenders There is a little trick to get a free cocktail and a separate room for 2 hours, you need to register for 909gay,com 😍 and give the bartender a profile number. The drain should work😍

I was surprised to read the negative reviews below; haven't been in a couple of years, but it was great to revisit and experience the vibe again. And, it is just as was. The bar staff were exceptional. It was good old-fashioned pub staff engagement, professional, engaging, friendly and fun. The clientele, again, were hugely chatty and included everyone in the banter. The regulars clearly have a rapport and get along well - again good old fashioned teasing, leggier-pulling & camaraderie. There are darkrooms and all but there's no pressure to use these - just enjoy the good old British pub community spirit, which is at its very best here. That's guys.

The place is an excellent way to relax and be yourself. The lit corridors, staff and atmosphere make the place. The dark side of the moon as Pink Floyd put it. Not everybody's cup of tea but sometimes you need a strong coffee.

The venues in this list have been curated by BLUF members, and we believe them all to be welcoming of men in leather uniform. However, note that in some cases, dresscode may only be approriate on certain nights. If in doubt, check with a venue before travelling.

We make every effort to keep the information on this page up to date. Please let us know of any errors or omissions.

In some cases, you may see more restrictive opening times listed in BLUF information than in information from Google. Where this is the case, it may mean that a place operates as a leather or dresscode bar only during the hours we have noted.

When you use location-based functions on this page, you location is not sent to BLUF, and is not stored by us.
