Open and accessible bar on Soho's gay catwalk
Popular and very centrally located Soho haunt known for its friendly staff and jukebox of 80s and 90s hits. Has a quaint provincial-neighbourhood feel despite its hot location. A good old-fashioned drinking hangout, with cabaret introduced into the roster in 2012. Gets quite crowded, especially on Saturday nights. On 30 April 1999 a neo-Nazi nail-bombed the pub, having targeted London's black and Bangladeshi communities in the two previous weeks. The explosion killed three Admiral Duncan customers and seriously injured many others.
