 St Martins Lane hotel is celebrating Pride in London on 6th July in style!

Located in the West End theatre district, St Martins Lane sits at the heart of Pride and this year, the hotel will be hosting a range of events and activities, recognising London’s biggest LGBTQ+ occasion in colourful fashion.

Firstly, on the day itself, St Martins Lane will be hosting ‘Costa del Soho’ with the city’s leading Spanish gay night, Gayzpacho.

After sailing around the Med, Gayzpacho Cruise Company are mooring at la Costa del Soho, a fictional floating paradise at St Martins Lane. Passengers on board can expect a celebratory evening filled with Euro-pop disco, live flamenco performances, drag shows, Go-Go dancing, and the collective’s staple Tomatina tomato wrestling, hosted by Toma Tina Turner.

Elsewhere, with waters full of sharks, Gayzpacho will put guests’ safety first with a team of ‘Boywatchers’ on the lookout.

The event can be accessed through the side entrance of St Martins Lane next door to the Coliseum theatre. This event is free to attend with a suggested donation towards Switchboard, the LGBTQ+ helpline, on the day. Tickets can be purchased here. 

On Friday 28 June from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, they’ll be hosting the ‘Coming Out Monologues’. Following a recent social media campaign, St Martins Lane are hosting an evening that will showcase a diverse range of coming out stories via public submissions received online.

The stories will be read out by two actors including Carl Mullaney, resident host at Kinky Kabaret. Tickets include a bespoke cocktail made in partnership with Absolut Vodka’s ‘A Drop Of Love’ Pride bottle. A donation from each ticket will be made to Switchboard – the LGBTQ+ helpline offering calm words when you need them the most. Tickets can be purchased from here.

Lastly, the St Martins Lane Kitchen Bar will be serving a special cocktail with a layered concoction resembling the rainbow flag. Priced at £14, the Jubilee Passion cocktail will include Ketel One Vodka, Koko Kanu, Maraschino, Strawberry, Green Tea Syrup and Passion Fruit Caviar.
