The White Swan *

Formerly: BJ's White Swan

A non-rough pub-club in a rough part of town
Decidely off the map for some, the White Swan nevertheless has its place as the jewel of London's working-class East End. Home to skinheads, strippers, muscle worshippers and talented drinkers who are game for dancing, comedy, cabaret and other pursuits. As full-on and unpretentious as it gets. DLR: Limehouse. Tube stations: Stepney Green and Aldgatge East.

    One of the only true gay venue's that still cater and care for the lesbian and gay community. Great music, Great Djs and GREAT drag queens always. Love the Swan and thank goodness it's still here after all these years.

    I come here every weekend now, sometimes Friday sometimes Saturday (sometimes both!). Dj's are always amazing and their music is fantastic (they even do requests!). Cabaret every Saturday with top names, I loved Miss Jason last Sunday. The best East End Gay Bar!
