Central London’s first new gay club in over a decade to open this weekend

A major new gay club in London is set to throw open its doors for the first time this weekend.

Circa Club, a 700-person capacity venue in the newly-refurbished Hungerford House next to Embankment station, will be open to party-goers from 11pm-4am every Friday and Saturday.

The venue on the bank of the River Thames is the first new gay club to open in central London in over a decade, and comes following a spate of LGBT+ bar closures around the capital in recent years.

The project has been helmed by Baby Bull, the owners of Soho gay bar Circa, who have promised to offer LGBT+ punters “amazing customer service and good value for money.”

Owner and founder of Circa Alan Winter said previously: “After working on the London gay scene for over a decade and witnessing its slow decline I am very proud and excited that Circa is here to say that the London LGBTQ+ scene is far from over!

“We look forward to giving our community a sparkling new space that’s safe, stylish and most importantly fun!”

Circa Club will launch this Friday (June 8) with DJ sets from Sam Londt and Storm Mollison. Wristbands will be available at Circa Soho (62 Frith Street) every Friday and Saturday from 12pm.

Tickets for Circa Club’s launch weekend are available here.
