I haven't felt such a fun and inclusive atmosphere in years, it's worth giving it a try such a diverse collection of people all with the same goal of being a wonderful time. Nice selection of cocktails. I'll definitely be going back.

The performers were great. Hats off to them. But unfortunately the bar staff are arrogant and water down the drinks. Have to advise giving this place a miss.

I paid with a £20 note for an £8 order at the bar and the bartender gave my change back in coins. I did wonder why he didn't just give me a £10 note but didn't say anything. I counted the change after I left...More

Attended this pub as it was a venue for a Wotever production, and we werent disappointed. This is a comfortable relaxed space reflecting a typical well used gay pub where women are welcome. However, as it is frequented by mainly men, don't be disappointed by...More

Unlike anything else in London or anywhere else in the world. Lots of LGBTQ babes who welcome everyone with open arms into their warm and friendly little pub. Something on EVERY night without fail that is super entertaining and queer. Highly highly recommend.

Drinks are fine, staff very friendly as is the crowd of men (young and older, very attractive to ordinary, hip and not so hip, queer and not-so-queer but largely gay) and women holding forth at the few tables. In short wonderful! Excellent music, tracks upstairs,...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about

Hi Jeni I don't know for sure but I doubt it. The bar is only open at night and most bars and pubs in the U.K. only allow under 18s before 7pm. I suggest you tweet the Glory to check.
