London Pride is nearly upon us so dust off your tallest stilettos, grab some glitter and start waving those rainbow flags to celebrate with the LGBTQ+ community as we take to the streets!
Below are a few of our favourite hot spots hosting fabulous events this coming Pride.
Dalston Superstore Drag Brunch
One of London’s favourite queer venues is
Dalston Superstore in East London, which celebrated its tenth birthday earlier this year. The versatile space acts as a cafe in the daytime with a menu serving delicious brunches like their popular ‘Butch Full English’ as well as vegan and vegetarian options like their yummy smashed avocado on sourdough toast. Then, in the evening it transforms into a fabulous club, hosting events and parties from some of London’s most established LGBTQ+ artists and creatives.
Between the hours of 12-4 each Saturday and Sunday, Superstore present their popular,
Drag Brunch, featuring some of their favourite hosts like A Man To Pet, Shayshay and Miss Craig. This Saturday 6th, Superstore will be celebrating London Pride with their delicious breakfast cocktails and food specials all day long so be sure to pop in for some drag madness. Yaaas Kween – Pride Cocktail
Perception Bar in Leicester Square has invented a new themed cocktail to celebrate.
YAAAS KWEEN cocktail is a fabulous fusion of citron Belvedere & Earl Grey Tea with refreshing touches of apricot, finished with a shiny, glittering top. The whole cocktail is suspended above a garden of sweets, all the colours of the rainbow.
£2 from every cocktail will go to
Pride in London, so don’t be shy. It’s for a good cause and it tastes delicious.

here. Soho Gay Bars G-A-Y Bar on Old Compton Street is a world-famous LGBTQ+ hotspot. This place always has its fair share of drinks offers, high-camp music and an excited, young crowd. The three-floor palace has a room for everyone including a girls’ space in the basement.
Down the road in Chinatown is
KU Bar & Club is often voted one of London’s favourite LGBTQ+ venues. It’s not quite as delightfully trashy as
G-A-Y but attracts a very similar, young crowd. The bar is full of screens showing some of their favourite music videos.
For the slightly older gay crowd there is always
The Yard Bar. The downstairs area is a beautifully lit space with lovely wooden bench-like seats and an array of plant life with an upstairs offering comfortable leather sofas, the perfect place to relax with a drink in the evening. Pride DJ Rainbow Brunch Vivi Restaurant in Tottenham Court Road are offering a wonderful rainbow brunch this coming Saturday from 11:30 – 3:30pm. There will be prizes to be won for the most fabulous dressed so be sure to put on your best outfit.
With cocktails in hand enjoy bangers from some of London’s favourite DJs whilst you tuck into your grub. There will be many dishes to choose from and if you want to upgrade to a bottomless brunch, you can do so for an added fee. Don’t worry, you can work off the food whilst dancing through the streets later on with the parade.
