A once great bar let down by poor upkeep and high turnover of staff. Toilets are disgusting. UPDATE: they seem to be trying to improve, but the toilets still a massive letdown. NEW UPDATE: things have improved but still lack of investment shows. Choice of music stuck in some sort of gay time loop but otherwise a bit better! NEWER UPDATE: the tatty wobbly benches have finally been replaced! Things are improving slowly but the staff spend more time sitting drinking and smoking outside than the customers, some of whom had to stand which is unacceptable. But generally better so one more star.

This gem stands at the heart of Clapham queer community and allies. Bingo, cocktails, drag queens and fun crowd. What's not to like?

Best Gay Bar in Clapham! Been coming The Bridge for a while now and I couldn’t say a bad thing about it. Lovely cosy bar, the staff are all amazing, great cocktails and every night there is entertainment or drag Cabaret!

I could not rave about the bridge more, this is where I found my community. The staff are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. The performers, comedians, drag acts are all super fabulous and hard working. Vicki + Pab make the bar what it is, they work endlessly to make sure all customers have a amazing experience. Also.. best happy hour in London

I used to love this place. It’s now overpriced and not worth it. I paid £12 for a half filled espresso martini.

Awful bar with a very clicky vibe. Over priced and management need a refresh

Booked a table, got there, they said they don't take bookings. Showed them the email confirmation, said just sit with other people... Fairly unprofessional, just don't understand why is there a booking system if they allegedly don't take bookings. Not even an apology, just blasé.

As usual made a booking and got a confirmation. Then got an email to state food requirements (albeit with everyone’s email address that booked that evening included (gdpr?)Turned up to be told not honouring bookings, they’ve fired the staff and a manager wasn’t available. Really, it’s cold out in winter. If you’re gonna bump me and the other bookings waiting outside maybe a courtesy call is in order.Will never returnGlad Arch is now open

Last time that we visited was a Wednesday afternoon around a month ago.Bar itself is nice enough as well as one of the staff working at the time. Long Island Iced Tea was pretty good too. Those are the reasons why the score isn’t lower.On the other hand, the other staff member really needs to drop the attitude or stop working in a face to face role.Just some examples:He was visibly very inconvenient that we didn’t have the app to scan and literally threw the registration board at us.Because we needed a couple of minutes to decide what to drink, we had to wait for approximately 15 minutes to order (there was only 2 other tables occupied but he was busy chatting with friends at the door)In summary, typical gay bar diva attitude.

Nice environment, good cocktails. My partner and I had a seat inside and got our drinks wiped off from our table even notifying the waiter that we'd just going for a cigarette outside.We had our drinks replaced, however, the bartender mistreated badly the boys who were working on the floor, arguing loudly and underrating the boys.Unpleasant scene to see it! Clearly, there's a bigot working behind the bar.

Genuinely lovely staff, nice and relaxed atmosphere, nice cocktails, good prices (especially the happy hour ones), basically one of my favourite bars here. There is no shouting or pushing either. And the best it's only 5 min from home 🙂
