Unfussy centrally located cruisy pub
Just seconds from Soho, 79 CXR is a low-key but frisky pub noted for various nooks and crannies, offering a friendly, attitude-free and rather old-fashioned environment, with a second bar upstairs. Admirers of this establishment's previously low-level lighting will find the increased wattage in 2010 a tad disappointing. 79 CXR closed its doors in October 2012 following, so the story goes, a certain decline at the hands of straight brewery managers. Reopened 1 November 2012 as Manbar, under gay management.
