It's the home of the clipart event poster - but what London's gay venues lack in originality, their parties do not disappoint...
From Cascada at G-A-Y, to La Voix at Two Brewers, Horse Meat Disco, Bang!, Beyond and more - there are zillions of club nights to bang into the new year on. Our pick would have to be G-A-Y for any visitor as its the gayest dampest club filled... but check out any gay bar for a good time and of course the clubs for those shirtless moments, that no doubt will include a lot of glitter around midnight.


If a night of big sound and lights with the ambassadors of the American gay techno underground is your thing then you are in luck. With music by:
