The girls of Old Compton Street
A cool and cavernous lesbian underworld located in the separate-entrance basement of Frith St guy bar Ku Soho, opened late January 2014 following the demise of Soho's maverick all-gal Candy Bar, whose final years were spent in the domain of Ku Bar mogul Gary Henshaw, who now oversees She Soho. This drinks-and-dancing haven features a well-stocked bar (including house shots and cocktails) and a dance space that's a bit of a squeeze (not a bad thing). Plus a chillout-cum-VIP area for more intimate moments. The space had a makeover in July 2017, to industrial-rustic effect, with a bleached wood effect and a corrugated vaulted ceiling. Festive distractions include twice-monthly karaoke, twice-monthly quizzes and monthly drag kings, plus the monthly Single Mingle social. DJs rule Thursdays to Saturdays, and men are allowed in as accessories. The bar is reached via Old Compton Street, adjacent to Bar Soho and opposite G-A-Y [see entry], home of post-7pm basement bar Girls Go Down. Completing a lesbian triangle of sorts is Muse Soho [see entry], seconds away in Frith St.
