Admiral DuncanThis once staid gay pub has been the subject of much media attention in the wake of 1999’s tragic bomb attack. Today, it is a gathering place for the gay community and one of Soho’s most visited drinking spots. New additions include a small dancefloor, bright décor and funky live music nights.

The Admiral Duncan has become a symbol of the gay community’s resistance to oppression and has a firm place in London’s history. There is no better place to soak up the unique atmosphere of a gay scene that is among the world’s largest and most influential.
