A gay lap dancing club was set up way back in 1999 when the concept of lap dancing really entered the public consciousness in the UK, but it didn't last:




The licensing environment, particularly in the West End (overseen by Westminster Council) simply isn't favourable towards such a venue. Quite a few bars and clubs in Soho have closed for various reasons. Soho, for all of its history, has become very sanitised and is progressively becoming a destination for dining above all else.


Also, the whole night-time economy is having a very hard time of it in London. The London real estate market is so overheated at the moment with literally billions of dollars being invested from overseas means that rents are being pushed up. Planning laws were recently relaxed to allow the conversion of (what was intended to be empty) commercial property to residential property and an unintended consequence that bars & clubs have been targetted by developers to convert to residential property. Also, big infrastructure projects like the "Crossrail" railway line have resulted in either venues closing to make way for it or developers acquiring property at nearby stations for development.


That said, there are a lot of male strip troupes (The Dreamboys, Adonis Cabaret, Forbidden Nights) in London that are ostensibly aimed at a female audience but they're all quite gay friendly. They do regular photoshoots for Attitude, Gay Times etc and a lot of the dancers also do go-go dancing at gay club nights such as "We Party", "Matinee" and "Beyond".


At the other extreme, there are some venues and nights that do have live shows by porn stars, like monthly night R18 at The Eagle in Vauxhall and occasional night Sexcircus. Though, from what I've seen of these, some things are best left to the imagination.

...there no gay male strip clubs in London?


I guess because prostitution is legal in most of Europe and why would you stare at the candy when you can just grab it and eat it. I'm sure some guys like watching, but I'll just get more horny.


My 2 cents...
