She Soho

100% love it
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/Klub 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 weekly karaoke, drag kings and Tuesday queer nights. DJs rule Friday to Sunday, 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], previously home of post-7pm basement bar Girls Go Down.
