    Thanks to the guys who replied to my earlier thread on NYC v London for a holiday and majority feels that London is the preferred destination.

    Now I'll be off to London and I intend to spend 4 days there. The next question is on gay venues in London; what are your recommended places based on your experience- 'not to be missed' bars, clubs, saunas in just 4 days.

    Many thanks!

    10 years ago Heaven was always a really nice place to visit; then again I was a twink..... I probably wouldn't go now.

    I don't go out much on the london gay scene but these are the places for you -

    1) Rupert street bar in Soho - one of the most popular places.. always crowded.

    2) The Yard - also in soho.. close to rupert street.

    3) Friendly society in soho as well - small little bar but its unpretentious and fun.

    4) Shadow lounge in soho - Twinky gay club... gets a few lesser known celebrities sometimes.. they have fun music... but its a smaller club.

    5) Barcode and Fire - in Vauxhall if you want the hardcore london gay scene... this is where all the muscle queens go... too much drugs and sex tho.

    Some other bars in Soho are - green carnation & GAY... basically you should go to Old Compton Street and most of the gay stuff is right around there... oe in vauxhall where the bigger / hardcore clubs are.
