We’re creating an online memory board for some of the UK’s lost venues.
We’d love for you to help us grow this historical archive of the UK’s lost gay scene. If you’ve got photos or memories of any of the venues you’d like to share please use the comment section below and we’ll add them right here.
An Art Deco cocktail bar in Molton Street, London
Memory from George:
Lastly I had a art Deco style cocktail bar called Blackout in 46 St Molton Street above one of the shops in the 80’s. It was small but always packed every night with a gay mixed crowd, perfect stop for great cocktails music then after 11.00 off to the Embassy club in New Bond St. If they made it there after the cocktails!!

Publishers like us have come under severe threat by the likes of Google and Facebook. The problem is that advertisers are choosing to put their money with them, rather than with niche publishers like us. Our goal is to eliminate banner ads altogether on site and we can do that if you could pledge us a tiny amount each month.
We’re asking our readers to pledge just £1 per month, more if you’re feeling swanky. You can stop payment at any time.
