The King's Arms

98% love it
Soho's premier den for bears
Casual, carpeted and cosy pub with an undeniable cruisy thing going on, the King's Arms is a magnet for older bears (and cubs) who might very well have been check shirt/denim/leather/moustache clones in the 1970s and 80s. Not a dull option. And popular too. Opened in 1981, with the conversion from clones to bears happening sometime in the 1990s.

      The bear pub in town
      If you are looking for a bearish type of man, here's the place. Great atmosphere, gentle staff. Sunday's Beareoke is the most unusual, but fun, night ever!

      I have been to London 3 times and every time I go this place has the best group of patrons. People are very friendly and the staff are great. Like most pubs it is best right when work lets out.
