Closures on the London gay scene

London. We encountered a lot of closures on the London gay scene.

The Hackney pub the Joiners Arms in Shoreditch had shut its doors in January 2015. The long-running London gay bar has been told that it must move itself to a new home because the current lease will not be renewed. David Pollard was the man who re-launched the venue as a gay bar in 1997

The closure of the Joiners Arms comes following the disappearance of several of Londonís gay bars over the last decade.

Gay bars have also to compete against the rise in popularity in online dating and gay appopen s where gay people meet one another. And in London it is not so easily to keep a inexpensive bar with ever higher rents.

Also the local authorities make it not so easy to obtain permits.

The future of the well-loved LGBT venue Royal Vauxhall Tavern in Vauxhall is not be so sure. Royal Vauxhall Tavern has recently been sold to new owners.

Man Bar , the popular and successful gaybars near Charing Cross Rd , had also closure problems last year because of noise disturbance with a upstairs neighbor.
