Eagle London *

Formerly: South Central

Cruisy old-fashioned gay-pub atmosphere
Popular, nearly-all-male Vauxhall spot with an unusually pleasing and spacious outdoor patio/smoking area. The bar tends to draw conventionally manly guys — with bulky-bear barmen dominating the floor —and in October 2012 reinstated laid-back cruisiness to its weeknight policy. At the weekend it caters to various subsets and interests, including Friday's Men Inc. (which replaced Tonker in October 2014) and the ever popular Sunday evening boy/girl party Horse Meat Disco [see separate entry]. London Leathermen (formerly MSC London) meet here monthly. Previously named South Central and before that Duke's, the bar opened as the Eagle in 2004, reinvented by current owner Mark Oakley. In February 2013 the bar expanded its horizons with its first 'sex entertainment license' and in May 2016 closed for 17 days for "essential upgrades", including new and improved bar station and lighting. In autumn 2016 Oakley tweaked the ethos of the bar with the removal of the darkroom. The bar is laid-back earlier in the week, with VHS screenings of cult/ nderground/ indie/LGBTQ movies and videos on Wednesday, and a Friday-like night of electronic music on Thursday (Synthia). Four minutes from Vauxhall tube station.
