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. Jivin' Julie started the weekly karaoke night Bearoke in 1998. Quizzes are big here too. Located seconds south of Oxford Street.

      Very friendly staff and a lot of nice guts . Traditional , bit far away from boring and run down place . One of my favourite in London . One word ( well , two to be exact ) " be back" . Simply didn't want to go home :-) thank you .

      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.
