Was so much better at the old venue. I'm glad it reopened elsewhere but they need to invest on making a similar atmosphere and 'spaces' as before. It's laid out like a nightclub but people don't go to dance; also blue lights are horrible: bring back red lights, stand around bar, private themed rooms, authentic cottages and a proper maze... There is so much unused space, it's not expensive to do. I don't understand why they haven't .

Zero stars! This place is not friendly to young people. It is not friendly to foreigners. Enjoy outside the EU. You have to be 40+ for someone to be nice to you. I do not recommend. £ 8 on Saturday, sorry but this place is not worth even £ 1 Terrible, not nice service. No respect for visitors. Different prices, one time more expensive and then cheaper. It is not possible to pay by card, but you can do cash back ahaha, Avoid !!!

I like it here think £2.40 for water is expensive. Staff doing what they can due to current circumstances but 3 people in 1 cubicle not ideal.

The fact that this was open during the pandemic is frankly disturbing. This has such a bad reputation as well. From the staff, the punters, and how dirty it is. This place should have been condemned years ago. You is nasty.

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.
