Gay nightlife in London
The main gay area has to be Soho, just west of the West End, where all theatres are located and north of China Town. In Soho also the major shopping areas like Oxford Street can be found.
UK venues used to be strict regulated regarding opening times. In the past all bars and pubs had to close at 11 in the evening. Still many places in Soho close early. But more and more go on till 3. On Sunday however really everything stops early. Only when you become a member at G-A-Y Late you can go on. (And of course in the clubs outside Soho)
