London Gay Restaurants

London is truly one of the most exciting and diverse restaurant capitals in the world: with the city being such a melting pot for different populations, your options for food are huge. Of course, being an LGBT capital means that gay London has many eateries which – though not exclusively gay – are very homo-friendly. Naturally, Soho, the queerest enclave of all, boasts the most.

Balans Soho Society is the most popular gay restaurant in London and has actually expanded into a chain with various branches across the capital. Gay Soho’s Old Compton Street is home to the original, perfect for people-watching while enjoying its great brunches or a cheeky cocktail.

Balans’ sister café further up the same street is open 24-hours, which makes for a very lively snack and coffee bar! Perfect for refueling when you step out of the club after a hard night of patying.

Oriental food also rules in London, and Soho is also home to branches of favorite chains Busaba and Wagamama. Veggie? Then try long-running gay hangout Mildreds for great food at great prices.

Heading out of Soho, Bistrotheque is the gayest restaurant in the East End, located in hip-but-real Bethnal Green. The haunt of gays, fashionistas and arty insiders, its weekend brunch menu is to-die-for, and will probably be backed up be a live show from London’s latest drag or musical talent.
