About us

The music mixes 70s, 80s, New Romantic, goth and alternative – and is reflected in the décor, featuring photos of iconic rock and pop figures, from Bolan to Bowie. There’s a great jukebox – think Grace Jones, Visage, The Associates – and more women than you’ll find in many gay establishments.

Nice LGBT bar. Sometimes a strange ambience because they will not be playing music when you come in and almost never seem to play any music upstairs. But a fairly nice vibe anyway somehow, it's nice being stood outside and when they are playing music it makes a nice atmosphere. Staff are very friendly! But please please please clean your beer lines! I tried two and both I couldn't finish. It was sludge and genuinely has left me feeling pretty ill. I watched a few others being poured and it's pretty obvious what the problem is.

Great bar! The staff are fantastic and super friendly. Shelia the bingo host is amazing - a great night with lots of laughs and fun. Make sure you swing by; good music, spacious ground floor and first floor bar area and you can take your drinks outside.

We stopped off for a couple of pints after work. It was quiet, but that's what we want for a chat. Good selection of beer.

A fantastic London pub with an impressive collection of pop star portraits adorning the walls. The beer is good, the dukebox is on fire and there's often a lovely chatty crowd. The staff are great. My only complaint would be that their bar manager Nelson isn't single - sends a dagger through my heart everytime. But other than that an excellent establishment - and a must see for any tourists especially LGBT visitors. Afterwards you can scoot along to nearby clubs like HEAVEN or Circa (maybe not Circa) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Absolutely love this place! we are an LGBTQ+ dance class based in London, and we visit Retro bar several times a week after our classes. The staff are SUPER friendly and helpful and they really go out of their way to make us feel welcome. There's a great vibe here and it has really cool, modern, upstairs area but it also has a more traditional 'pub feel' downstairs too. Drink prices are great too! Definitely a place to check out!!!
