Molly Moggs *

Friendly, intimate, local drag den in the centre of town
A tiny, traditional-style corner pub at the entrance to (or exit from) Soho, Molly Moggs went all gay and dressed up in 2001 following centuries of heterosexuality and ultimately going to seed. Overseen by resident artiste Dame Julie Paid, with regular drag performances laudably audible from outside. Plus karaoke on Mondays. One of Soho's gay institutions that few people talk about. It's just there doing its thing, with a lovely spirit.

    Molly Moggs you need to sort yourselves out
    I was told by the barstaff at Molly Moggs that they have karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays, and that anyone can perform. Well, I went along on Saturday night to perform karaoke and I was turned away for no good reason. If I get treated like that at Halfway to Heaven on Monday night, then it is all off for gay people. Basically, if I get the same treatment on Monday night at Halfway to Heaven, all gay people can forget about coming to my shows, Lady Gaga's shows, Madonna's shows, Kylie's shows, Charlotte Church's shows, Katy Perry's shows and Rihanna's shows. Because, if you treat me with that level of disrespect, there are serious consequences.

    The real deal
    This is the best bar to go to in London if you want to experience the truly local scene. Very small space that gets packed, but it's very jovial and the drag show is fantastic. The good old fashioned kind that's campy and the queens actually sing with their own voices and don't lip sync.

    Love this place. Can get a bit touristy and mixed, but had rapidly become a London institution.
