Lots of gay venues have closed in East London over the last few years, so the emergence and success of The Glory feels especially sweet. Most definitely the best place out East to enjoy a gay bar, brilliant drag and performances and a nightclub all rolled into one, The Glory is owned by London drag queens Jonny Woo and John Sizzle with party man Colin Rothbart.
Their weekend discos every Friday and Saturday are legendary, and the main pub is free during the week or before 10pm on weekends. Plus there’s a rolling roster of shows happening downstairs on most nights, which switch into a disco at weekends.
