This Saturday (11 Aug) you get a delicious mix of an Italian treat and a hot sweaty team of bears and blokes in tight white shorts all trying to score. We are of course talking about DJ Pagano playing at XXL Rugby, alongside those amazing residents. Pagano will be spitting out the ferocious tunes in the main room while the dancefloor turns into one giant rugby scrum… See you there!
Athena Heart joins Charlie Hides at The RVT
We love Sunday Social at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern and this weekend (12 Aug) it promises to be even more special. The incredible Charlie Hides will be on stage plus the DJs will be rocking our world as always, and joining Charlie on stage will be Lewis Bailey, aka Athena Heart. Lewis is the young man who was recently told it was ‘illegal’ for him to perform his drag act at his school and appeared at Brighton Pride last weekend. This will be a fantastic afternoon – don’t miss out.

It’s a lovely space and every day between 5pm and 7pm it’s Happy Hour when you can get their mouth-watering cocktails for just £7, and trust us they are worth every penny. Yummy.
