Ku Leicester Square /Ku Klub *

Ku ku ka choo
A casual and attractive hot spot with an image-aware, youngish and camp-friendly clientele, located one minute south of Soho, a minute north of Leicester Sq, and on the edge of Chinatown. Opened 2007. Popular, clubby-style, DJ-driven basement bar Ku Klub features a dance floor and opens from 10pm, with comedy nights fortnightly. Lesbian-dominant Tuesday nights (Ruby Tuesday, from 10pm in the basement) belong to the girls from She Soho (ex-Candy Bar). It's a 'three girl/one boy' minimum ratio, with males allowed in only if accompanied by the opposite sex. A sibling Ku branch with a more lounge sensibility, also called Ku Bar, opened in 2009 on 25 Frith St in Soho [see entry]. Pronounced 'kew', not 'koo'. . Official site:

    Ku Bar is a three-story London gay bar and dance club which is located just a few steps from the Leicester square. Do not confuse it with Ku Bar soho as there are 2 Ku Bars in London close to each other. On the first floor you will find a cocktail bar with champagne as well as a few small private booths, the main floor is a small dance club that attracts a wide range of clientele from twinks, locals and tourists you can find just about all types of people here. The main floor is all about playing top 40 hits on massive video screens.\nI personally prefer this branch of the bar rather than the one in Soho.
