After not liking this venue for a few years it has grown on me. At least it is a proper gay bar and there are few left so long may it continue. The downstairs bar is a bit more welcoming if you are a stranger...More
Unfortunately rude barmen with unreasonable demeanors.
Visited with friends who frequented the bar years ago, who were disappointed at the turn of customer service.
Absolutely not interested in returning again.
Visit the bar on a regular basis, usually after visiting elsewhere first. It’s a middle of the road bar, prices are reasonable (for soho) and selection is good. It’s probably not the bar I would jump to as my first thought of a bar in...More
The Duke is one of those bars that I like to visit when in London - no particular reason why. It is always busy and has a cordoned off area outside which is great during the summer though it does get very busy and crowded....More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
