Lesbian dating venues are thriving in the capital, with plenty of bars, clubs and eateries to choose from. For dating locations, these range from cafes to bars and exhibition spaces; here are some of the best lesbian dating spots that London has to offer.
London’s best all-women venue, run ‘by girls, for girls’ has everything from electro to hits from the 80s and 90s and has been running for 15 years now. Karaoke, live shows and pool competitions are just some of the things going on at this buzzing bar and club. As a forerunner in the lesbian social scene, Candy Bar has recently re-launched with some funky new club nights and less of the pink decor which it was once known for. It’s also been the setting of Channel 5’s programme Candy Bar Girls, which follows the lives of a group of young, hip lesbians living in Soho.
Ideal for lesbian dating without the glitz of conventional clubs, First Out isn’t just a cocktail venue; it’s also a chilled out bar and a quirky cafe with something for everyone. If you’d like to treat your date to some food, there’s a great vegetarian and vegan selection, with spinach and red pepper tortilla, homemade quiches and soups to tickle the taste buds. For dating in the evenings, there’s First Out’s Girl Friday with ‘post-work drinks and pre-clubbing shenanigans’ for girls and their friends, or check out one of their art and photography exhibitions for a drop of culture while you’re there.
Brown Sugar’s monthly lesbian night Pout is a roaring success because of its funky disco and Motown classics. Women come here to dance and let lose – and that’s what Brown Sugar does best. With cocktails, mocktails and pitchers, there’s plenty to enjoy in its plush surroundings. Pop by early in the night to take advantage of the full Thai food menu which is a great start to an evening’s dating.
