Out In The City


The Bloomsbury Set

41790_109282122443164_5032_nIt’s not often new gay bars open up in central London these days, but a new one to stick its head above the parapet is The Bloomsbury Set – an intimate little basement establishment just a stone’s throw from the Brunswick Centre in… well, Bloomsbury of course! For those not familiar with area, it’s the historical district of London between King’s Cross, Russell Square and Euston, centred in and around Bloomsbury Square.

The Bloomsbury Set can be found at 76 Marchmont Street (beneath the branch of Snappy Snaps on the corner), WC1N 1AG.

Opened by Jeremy and Tom, the independently owned and run bar is open from 4 till 11pm on Mondays to Saturdays, and then from 2 till 10.30pm on Sundays. Kick back on the Chesterfields, listen to the eclectic mash-up of music (everything from house and funk to indie and pop), enjoy bespoke cocktails and maybe discuss your latest literary purchase from the nearby Gay’s The Word bookstore. The Bloomsbury set was the original term coined for a select group of writers who lived and convened in the area in the early part of the 20th century. For more details, check out the website at www.newbloomsburyset.co.uk, call 020 7383 3084, or join the Facebook group at ‘The Bloomsbury Set’.
