London`s Gay Friendly Restaurants

The gay scene in London is legendary. In fact it has developed at such a rate that it is now considered the gay capital of Europe. Stroll around any one of London’s gay neighbourhoods - Vauxhall, Soho, Islington, Hoxton- and you are bound to discover some restaurant gems.

There`s a few great restaurants where you can feel comfortable.
Balans Cafe -A real institution, the Soho branch at Balans has become a hotspot for visitors from around the world. The vibe is relaxed and friendly, the food is well priced but it’s the location – bang in the middle of happening Old Compton Street - that really attracts the crowd.
First Out Cafe - A cosy and very popular restaurant in St Giles Street, the First Out Café claims to be the first gay café in the West End. As well as serving delicious vegetarian food, First Out also hosts exhibitions and party nights.
Bistrotheque - Slightly off the beaten track in Hackney, the very stylish Bistrotheque is well worth a visit. Inspired by traditional English and French cuisine, the food is superb and immaculately served. When it comes to entertainment Bistrotheque likes to camp it up with acts that include Spanky is a Gang-Star, Lipsinkers and Baby Dee
The Providores and Tapa Room - Run by the superb chef Peter Gordon, The Providores provides Marylebone High Street with its very own foodie heaven. At street level, the Tapa Room offers fantastic casual dining, while upstairs the Providores dining room serves unbelievable food in slightly more formal surroundings. Coffee, Cake and Kink - The coffee is fairtrade and freshly roasted, the cakes are homemade and delicious and the kink comes in the form of exotic books, prints, art and cards. The cheery proprietor at Coffee, Cake and Kink says his vision for his café is to ‘provide people with the sweeter things in life’.
Steph’s -Over the last 17 years the gorgeous Steph’s has received a variety of awards for its food and ambience. Featuring classic British comfort food, diners can expect delicacies like fish and chips served in real newspaper and homemade pie of the day served with mash. The high-kicking line of painted flamingos set the scene in the totally fabulous Steph’s.

London Zoo

London Zoo is home to over 600 species of animals, and is part of a worldwide conservation and education charity. Over 100 of the animals at the zoo are in danger of extinction. A.A. Milne was inspired by a black bear called Winnie at London zoo, to write Winnie the Pooh. Many of the animal’s enclosures have been designed by famous architects including Lord Snowden.


Caffe Nero

I f you are looking for glorious waft of fresh coffee, the smell you expect to find as you wander through a backstreet of Paris, or in an Italian cafe, you must visit ther main streets of London’s Soho.:) Despite wonderful coffees, cafeterias in London offer a wide selection of cakes.

I recommend Caffe Nero. It`s ideal place to rest after a hard days work or shopping. Tasteful decor and a fine choice of beverages make for a positive, appealing experience.


window tax

One new idea created during the financial crisis in 1696 as the alternative way od paying debts was called the window tax. The tax was payable on houses of more than six windows, so the clever tax-dodgers simply got hold of a builder to brick up the other windows. Houses with nine windows would pay 2/- (10p) and ten to nineteen windows the cost was 4/- (20p). In 1851 the window tax was scraped and a new tax called house duty a forerunner to community charge became payable.



The Saatchi Gallery - an impressive and unique houses. It`s one of the most influential collections of contemporary art in London.

It displays works from an array of national and international sculptors, painters, photographers, and multimedia artists, many who have never before been seen in London.
The Saatchi Gallery prides itself on supporting new and previously unexhibited artists and in this way acts as a springboard for their careers.
