Drag Idol double at Sundowners
We do like to be beside the seaside and especially so when we can get a visit in to Sundowners in Margate. There’s always good stuff happening at this friendly venue and this Friday (31 Aug) you can dress down for fun at their Toga Party, and then on Saturday they have something very special with not one but two Drag Idol champions, 2016 winner the outrageous Tracy Barlow AND this year’s winner, the brilliant Felix Le Freak.
Head to Little Ku
Ku Soho, or Little Ku as it’s known, is the petite but gorgeous bar on Frith Street, open seven days a week and always has a smile on its sexy face. Hot boys, cool tunes, cold drinks… need we go on?!
Halfway’s Marsha’s 50th
This Wednesday (5 Sep) at Halfway II Heaven one of the scene’s most popular bar persons, Mark, known to everyone as Marsha, will be turning 50. Marsha has been at Halfway for the best part of a decade and before that worked at the Black Cap. He will actually be working on the big day from 5pm behind the bar at Halfway, but if you want to pop down and wish him a happy birthday, then we know he’d love it. Happy birthday, Marsha!

Balans cocktail offer
We all know it’s easy to overspend on a big weekend, but we also still need a little treat sometimes. Those lovely people at Balans know this too and at Balans Soho Society members can get their Society perks in the shape of two cocktails for the price of one Monday to Friday between 4pm and 6pm. Delicious.
