Gay Dance Nights – SCRUFFy Guide to Gay London
Gay Dance Nights in London: the scene is very varied! There is something for every taste!
I have my own preferences, that I want to share with you, so you know what are the best SCRUFFy gay clubs in London next time you visit! You can find anything any night of the week, with a larger offer over the weekends, of course. I have my own preferences, that I want to share with you. These are the top 5 Gay Dance SCRUFFy nights: Room Service (Thursday), Push the Button (Friday), 2 Brewers (Friday and Saturday), XXL (Saturday), Horse Meat Disco (Sunday).
Thursday Gay Dance Night – Room Service
This is in my opinion the best way to start an early weekend. Room Service, the “London’s sexiest weekly gay dance party” takes place every Thursday in Soho, at the Club 49, on Greek Street, not far from Soho Square. The crowd is very mixed: you can find twinks, musclebears, hunky professionals, sexy scruffy bearded men, drag queens, altogether having a blast with the gorgeous go-go dancers. The music is amazing: its house DJ’s know well how to get everybody on the dance floor. Started in 2011, Room Service is already a very popular worldwide brand: it has been exported to New York, Paris, Milan; Amsterdam, Tel Aviv… definitely you need to check it out!
Friday Gay Dance Night – Push The Button
If you are into Pop Music this is a night you can’t miss. Since 6 years, every last Friday of the month the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, the most iconical gay club of Vauxhall, just south of the river Thames, turn queerer than usual! All the greatest hits of the last 2 decades are played at Push The Button, and all the bears, the twinks and the fitties sing along. It is definitely a show not to miss! If you are around on a Sunday afternoon, you can’t miss either the Sundays at the RVT! Mixed crowd and a lot of fun: the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon among new and old friends!
Friday and Saturday Gay Dance Nights – The Two Brewers
What if you are in London on a Friday night, but Push the Button is not on? No, man, do not cry! Just head to The Two Brewers! This is a very fun gay venue of Clapham, another cosy nice area of London very popular with the gays (and the Aussies!). If you fancy a nice drag show, a good few drinks and are ready to hit the dance floor like there is no tomorrow this is the place you must visit on a Friday or Saturday night: the larger club space on those days is open from 10pm until 3am playing house and garage sounds. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, great music: definitely my favourite Pub Gay Dance Night in London.
Saturday Gay Dance Nights – XXL
What can you expect from a club night with such a name? It does exactly what it says on the tin: bears, musclebears, otters, bearded SCRUFFy men, chunks, chubs and obviously their chasers meet up every Saturday at the Pulse Club for the XXL Night, a “Cruise and booze” party (yes, you have read it right: by cruise I mean a large dark room at the back, very big, as I have been told :p). Regular themed nights are held: check the schedule on the website to get there prepared!
Saturday Gay Dance Nights – Horse Meat Disco
Take Monday off and get on the dancefloor of the Eagle: It is really worthy to check the Horse Meat Disco night! This popular venue in Vauxhall is just a few meters away from the RVT: its funky and disco vibes are my favorite way to end up the weekend and get ready for a new week! If like me, you are a fan of classic disco hits and 70’s music this is the night for you: its great DJs will get you on the dance floor and make you dance all night long!
