Bloc South/The Bloc *

Formerly: Club No. 65

Sexy-massive space that's big on gay pleasures
Just when you thought gay Vauxhall was on a corporate-development-led path to extinction, along came scene-stealer Wayne Shires with Bloc South – a dark and atmospheric, under-the-arches haven for manly cruising and dancing that could become Shires's 21st-century answer to his 1990s success story Crash, which was located next door. Shires relocated his Saturday beef-and-beard club Brüt [see entry] from the City to this location, now happening weekly on Fridays. Saturday events operate on a monthly rotation (including fetish-friendly Tribe) — plus the occasional bear social dance party Wüff — so it's best to check the website. There are two main ground-floor spaces — one for dancing and the other for drinking and socialising — plus darkrooms upstairs. Suzie Krueger's naked/briefs/jocks-embracing cruise party JOXXX started October 2017, Sundays 2pm–9pm, and her monthly Hard On [see entry] moved in the same month. Also in the same month, Shires stretched the opening hours and filled them with The Bloc — a Monday to Thursday/Sunday evening/night-time cruise bar. Bloc South opened March 2017 and is located in between Union and Chariots saunta — a one- or two-minute walk from Vauxhall tube station, depending on state of mind.

    Great night out with the lads on sat night. Five quid in. There's two bars with a cruise bit, and a smoking area out the back. Huge venue, and drinks prices where OK 4.50ish cans
