Review: SHE Bar Soho

25 Feb


Review by Anisa Easterbrook

As we all know and are truly sad about, our hometown Candy Bar closed down towards the end of last year. However, ‘out of the ashes’ a host of new bars and nights have opened up centrally, including ‘She’, launched in January. Run by girls only and found in the heart of Soho – the first lesbian bar on Old Compton Street – ‘She’ is helping save the Soho lesbian club scene.

I rocked up on Valentine’s Day to check out the new venue (and stop myself from drinking a bottle of wine to myself whilst crying to Adele). The door is discreet and if it weren’t for the queue of buzzing girls lined up I might’ve missed it. Everyone was excited to see the new go-to place.

The time passed quickly and soon enough I was heading down the steep stairs descending into what looked like a lesbian haven. So many girls.

Okay, so the bar is smaller than Candy, but it surprisingly fits a lot of people. Les-be-honest though, the smaller the venue the closer you can get to the hot girl you’ve been eyeing up all night.


The bar is split into two different sections. It is a dimly lit bar and lined with cute little glass tables, candles and faux leather chairs creating a classy, romantic atmosphere. Walk into the next room however and you’ll enter a steamy, rammed bar and dance floor.

Drinks prices are reasonable for central at £4.20 for a vodka mixer and £3.70 for bottled beer. The bar also has a varied cocktail menu and Sunday to Thursday it is 2-4-£10 on selected cocktails!

DJ Hazel Soze was the lady of the night on the decks and she blared out some pop chart toppers which got everyone up and grinding.

While Saturday nights showcase top DJ’s, weekdays at ‘She’ are filled with the best of the old Candy Bar events, including indie night Chick Habit and drag cabaret party Boi Box. ‘She’ should be a great new home to those missing Candy Bar.

Soho, do not despair, ‘She’ has lived up to expectations and faith in the Soho lesbian community surviving has been restored.




Indie Night at Bite

21 Mar

What can I say about Bite. Well it’s a club night falling on the grim day that is Monday brightening it up with the best selection of indie music, a cool collection of sexy people and so many offers on drinks you’ll be sipping on the house cocktail without the need to scrape together the sticky change in the bottom of your bag. So really what I’m saying is get yourselves there.

 Set in MIABELLA on Greek Street, the music is none of your overplayed chart pop but a selection of old and new indie tunes played by DJ Lydia Butler and a whole host of glammed up glittered up guests. Featuring artists like the Pixies, Boys Noize, AlunaGeorge, Daft Punk, Bart B More, Crystal Casles Rustie, Phoenix, M83, and YYYs making you all excited and giving you eargasms. If you haven’t heard of any of these wonderfully glorious musicians it’s time to don the sexy dress and get down to this night.

 I went this Monday and swanned  into a room playing disclosure’s White Noise before shotting a tequila for three pounds,  then having to shot another one because I forgot it was two-for-one drinks before eleven, and then being twirled around by a woman in checked trousers who said she’d actually met The Cure.  Such is Bite and its wacky dancing twirly crowd.

 MIABELLA is a cute little basement club with enough room for a dance floor for stomping, swaying, shuffling  and shingaling and enough seats for meets and greets or kisses with the mrs.  The night isn’t a lesbian one and it’s not on the scene but if you came in dressed as a unicorn smooching your girl, no one will bat an eyelid. They’ll probably just want to try the costume.

 If you get on the Mailing list you can get free entry before 11pm and of course you get there in time for the two for one drinks, otherwise it’s five pounds afterwards or three with one of the beautiful flyers or student ID.
