Gay bar that was previously known as Baron & Baroness and changed it's name in 2010.

The bar described as an all New Cabaret, Entertainment & Late Night Venue is decked out to a high standard.

The windows at the front give a bright and airy feel to the place.

The bar has a small bar upstairs and downstairs with a part tiled and wooden floor. There is plenty of seating throughout the bar with tables and chairs.

A staircase at either end of the bar leads to the upper level where there is extra seating in more cosy intimate areas.

To the left of the main entrance an archway leads through to a raised area where there is more comfortable seating.

The low drop down lighting and large chandelier style lighting create a nice cosy atmosphere in the evening.

Regular music is on play at most times with a juke box located near to the entrance.

There is a large outside seating area on Times Square with wooden tables and chairs.

The pub attracts a mixed clientele of gay and straight and those attending the other bars in the Centre for Life.

With the bar featuring live cabaret entertainment from Rusty and a show-stopping set from Nicki Frenchit it has become a firm favourite in the Gay Village/ Pink Triangle area.

Disabled access very good to the main bar with a designated toilet at the rear. Toilets are very smart and clean.

Price: Moderate.
