Whatever gets your motor running, you’re sure to find an event dedicated to it at Bunker Bar
On the surface, the area around Old Street looks to be nothing more than glass buildings holding tech start-ups and sarcastic coffee shops, but, as is often the case in London, those who look slightly closer will be rewarded.
Just five minutes’ walk from the roundabout, there’s a subterranean cruise joint called Bunker Bar. Seasoned veterans of the gay scene might remember it as East Bloc, but today, it’s a cave of dark corners, mazes and booths. All throughout the week, there’s a great range of events to cater to every kink, from corporal punishment and fisting to skinheads and suits. It’s also the home of long-running nights, like London Jack-Off Club and Fitladz, which happen every Monday and Friday respectively.
Whether you want to indulge your deepest desires or just simply take off your kit to go naked clubbing, we can’t recommend heading down the staircase into Bunker Bar enough. One night off the apps won’t hurt.
