Heaven is the most famous gay club in London and is still going strong after twenty years. It is situated in the arches under Charing Cross Station, just south of Trafalgar Square. While busy in the week, at the weekend it really takes off and the queues stretch into Villiers Street. Admittence is £12, £8 with a flyer from Kudos or another bar and is open from 10.00pm to 500am.
Spread over three floors the place is huge with stage, galleries, three restaurants and four bars. But it is the music that draws people in. This is the club which invented techno in the eighties and the music is cutting edge as well as full of old classics. Just come and enjoy!
The Fridge is alot more hardcore and is a real find. For my money it is one of the best clubs in Europe. Their music is so successful it has spawned 12 bestselling CD's. Part of the attraction is where it is which is in the gritty borough of Brixton. To reach it from central London take the tube to Brixton and head left and it is opposite the Palladian town hall.
The most expensive of the clubs £14, £10 with flyer and is open to 6.00am. The Fridge is now only gay twice a month so check the press to find out which days. Inside is a colossal theatre turned into a nightclub complete with stage and curtains. One warning about the Fridge is that it is very drug orientated. But the music is some of the best in the world.
Of the three this is the cheesiest and most poppiest of the nightclubs. The place where you can bring your sister for a good night out. It is also the most popular and holds 5,000 people. All ages are represented but most seem to be under 25 who thoroughly enjoy the top-twenty music.
It's also the cheapest at £7 with flyer and Mondays and Thursdays are only £1 entry. It is housed in the Astoria theatre on the Charing Cross Road and starts at 10.00pm and goes on to 5.00am. But the big attraction at G.A.Y. apart from seeing thousands of men dance to Geri Halliwell are the Personal Appearances. Every pop star is Britain does G.A.Y. at one point. For a couple of quid we have seen The Human League, Marc Almond, Samantha Mumba, Craig David, Mel C, Sonique, and many more.
There are plenty more nightclubs to choose from and when the above close TRADE just opens at 4.00am and goes on to 1.00pm. Just pack those dancing shoes and enjoy.
