Heaven

Nightlife

Belinda Carlisle knew what she was on about when she sang "Heaven is a place on earth" - it's right next to Charing Cross tube, and it's probably London's best-known gay club. As with most popular gay venues, large crowds of straight tourists abound. Heaven has tried to curb this by designating different nights as straight, gay or mixed, but it hasn't really worked. Not that it matters at all, because Heaven is still a blissful venue which puts on a huge variety of club nights. The lounge upstairs provides a bit of friendly chill-out to a golden oldies atmosphere and you can actually talk in here without shouting. It all makes for an interesting and entertaining clubbing experience.
