Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Get down to the Cabaret capital of South London as The Royal Vauxhall Tavern offers some of the best drag acts in the United Kingdom. A strong statement I know but spend one evening here and you'll be hooked like a tramp on chips!

Vauxhall is well know for its super late party nights with thumping music and many a muscle Mary which is all very good. But what RVT offers is an alternative scene to Vauxhall where entertaining their customers is number 1 on the agenda. Our favourite night is the Big Bingo Show on a Monday hosted by drag queen, Timberlina. Expect fun and games with some seriously cheap drinks offers. Duckie on a Saturday is also a cracking night proven by its impressive 18 year run.
The venue is laid out like a semi circle with a stage in the middle and seating around the circumference. The booze are a decent price with beers and wine costing under a fiver so your bank account can relax for now.

The Royal Vauxhall Tavern has history oozing from the walls as the longest serving gay venue in London. It has featured heavily in films such as 'Dressed Like a Girl' and 'Pride' and made history earlier this year when it became the first UK listing of a LGBT venue. Paul O'Grady performed as Lily Savage regularly and considers the venue his school of performing arts.

So what are you waiting for? The Royal Vauxhall Tavern has become the nation’s first ever building to be listed for its place in LGBTQ history and heritage. Experience a slice of gay history today!
