London's oldest leather bar
Practically untouched since its April 1985 opening (with dusty boots dangling from the ceiling to prove it), John Edwards's bar Backstreet abides by its strict fetish dress code, and the pay-off for its loyal leather and rubber clientele is an unfussy, dark and atmospheric cruising space — the closest thing London has to an old-style European leather bar. Tall boots guarantee free entry on the last Friday of the month and full rubber does the same on the final Saturday. It's just a minute's walk from Mile End tube station on the District and Central lines.
