THE TOP 3 BARS TO VISIT THIS PRIDE MONTH
Happy Pride Month!
Hey there Duppies,
Whether you’re part of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally, pride month is one of the funnest months in the capital. Whilst London Pride will not take place until 11th September, June is officially the UK’s pride month and in the spirit of sharing the love in true Duppy style, we want to highlight the best places in London to celebrate pride. We want to foster a sense of inclusivity and bring together people from all walks of life. We hope to inspire people to unite to escape the ordinary and create incredible memories with the help of a little rum love. So, without further ado, let’s check out our top 3 bars to visit this pride month.
Dalston Superstore is an East London gem when it comes to finding the perfect place to celebrate pride. They are a mishmash of a cabaret bar, club, cafe and gallery all in one and proudly caters to London’s diverse crowd. These guys are sure to have banging music alongside their infamous drag brunches, where you can enjoy more than a few delicious cocktails and tasty food, but most importantly some jaw dropping drag performances. They also host fundraisers and use their space to support grassroot community groups in need to further give back to the LGBTQ+ community.
Address: 117 Kingsland High St, London, E8 2PB
