This has to be the most authentic leather bars in London. Like all such places, the crowd varies but generally everyone is friendly and up for it. The barmen are welcoming. When I came here last week, I had a great time catching up with mates and enjoying what's on offer.
What to say, just the best in london. Is a very friendly and openminded place
Found the patrons very friendly if you approach them. Easygoing atmosphere, and all 100% leather. Didn't find the bartenders to be particularly friendly but thats perhaps just me.Reasonably priced drinks. Totally worth going and a. great experience overall
London's only true fetish bar left. Very reasonable drinks prices. Located right on Mile End tube stop. Decor hasn't changed or been revamped since the 80s. Very run down in places but sleazy.
Great little gay leather bar with friendly staff and an equally friendly crowd
