Bethnal Green Working Men's Club – London, England - Atlas Obscura

Bethnal Green Working Men's Club

Where's a guy to go after a long, hard day at work? 


Established in 1953, this was originally one of many working men’s clubs around Britain.

While declining membership has led many others to close, especially in the wake of the 2007 smoking ban, the Bethnal Green branch has adapted and thrived through an eclectic program of music, poetry and in particular burlesque events.

Never afraid to pull its punches, the venue is the home of the Tranny Olympics and its regular David Lynch-inspired Double R club has won ‘Best Ongoing Production’ at the London Cabaret Awards for the last two years.
