The Backstreet *

London's oldest leather bar
Practically untouched since its April 1985 opening (with dusty boots dangling from the ceiling to prove it), Backstreet abides by its strict dress code, and the pay-off for its loyal leather and rubber clientele is an unfussy, dark, atmospheric and rather trippy cruising space for the sex-inclined. Tall boots guarantee free entry on Fridays and full rubber does the same on Saturdays. Includes a small part-heated outdoor smoking area with an industrial feel. Specialist events include a first-Sunday-of-the-month lycra fetish night Heros (6—10pm), semi-regular BLUF parties (alternates host duties with the Hoist), occasional fetish- and cigar-friendly Ignite, plus Brew Hunter's Mastery and Hell for Leather gatherings. And there's also naked cruise party Buff, which unveils itself every Wed 7–11pm, Sat 6–10pm and Sun 6–10pm (except first Sun of the month). Lingerie-fetish night Linger joined the club's roster on a Thursday in June 2014, and men in suits escape from the office every third Friday 6–10pm.
