Popped in here for a pint on the way home from work... there's an event space downstairs that is apparently popular but I just went upstairs for a drink. It was fairly rowdy but had some cosy seats down the back. Would probably go back for some entertainment, numerous people have recommended this place.

The staff at the Black Cap are usually pretty friendly and are happy to give you drink recommendations (which are usually pretty good). It's a little expensive but one of the nicer gay pubs in London. The upstairs bit closes early-ish but then the downstairs bit opens and it's always got really fun drag acts and cabaret. The staff there told me this place is in danger of being shut down- I hope not!

this used to be my local gay haunt i have been back a few times recently, it is cleaner and happier than it has been in years. the new management are working hard to resurrect the bar, with great new promoter nights, i went in with a load of my lesbian friends for the mollys chamber night they do and it was incredible, great djs, great shows, great bar staff! further more i pulled and so did all of my friends!

Very welcoming and friendly place. Very nice to get away from the rush of Camden, great food too.

3 starts for the venue n friendly staff otherwise it would be 1 only . Don't wanna be mean at all but managment should listen to customers and staff and actually do something about it . Drag may be fun but hey not every single one and just because locals can't be bothered to go to soho or further they forced to have fun on every crap you playing or no matter what unfortunate creature is screaming on stage. Just because we don't want to be mean and boo ur screaming guest of the stage doesn't mean we love it. Soo managment wake up try something new rather than carry on with old shit just differently

The bar staff is really rude especially for a gay bar. The place is otherwise great! Probably one of the best gay places in London.
