As Soho's only lesbian bar Candy gets ready to open it's doors for the last time this Saturday we began to realise that a lot of shit went down at Candy. And we mean A LOT. From first visit to that questionable night in the loos, it's time to fess up. We want to hear all your deepest darkest secrets of what you naughty little kittens did there. It will be our little secret, us and the internet.

  • I don't feel like a proper lesbian because I used to sleep with men.
  • I can't tell my girlfriend of 5 years that I can't get married in a church because I don't agree with gay marriages being religious ceremonies. I know she's dying to do it in a church but I think it's disrespectful to Catholics and to us - our values don't match up so why should we get married in a church?
  • I think my mum is a lesbian as well but I don't know how to talk to her about it. She was with my dad for ages then they got divorced a couple of years ago. Now she's just always with her friend and stays over at hers sometimes. I want her to be happy but I think it's weird.
  • My mate's girlfriend is a massive slag. I went to the same uni as her and I know she was with everyone and treated people really badly. Now she's with my friend and I don't think she'll believe me.
  • I cheated on every girlfriend I've ever had. I didn't feel bad about any of it!
  • I've been a gold star for ten years but I just slept with my best guy friend. I have no idea what this means but I'm actually really sad I'm not a gold star anymore :(
  • Sometimes, I don't feel like lesbian sex is real sex.
  • I stayed at my friend's after a big drunken night out and used her vibrator. I never told her.
  • My mum found my handcuff collection. Yep, I have a collection ;)
  • Haven’t told my parents I’m gay yet and I just moved home from uni to find out one of the girls I slept with lives down the road. FML
  • Last week I shagged my mum’s best friend. And her husband. Lol
  • I’m totally in love with my best girl mate but she’s straight. We kissed once but it was ages ago and even though she laughs about it now, I know she liked it. I’d love to take things further with her but I can’t bear to lose her. #lesboproblems
  • An excerpt from my autobiography of life as a London dominatrix features the Candy Bar. Here's an excerpt from "Instant Whips and Dream Toppings: A true-life dom rom com".... One of the lesbian bars I used to frequent in London was called the Candy Bar. I started going there not long after I’d embarked on my forays into tasting lesbian lips, firstly with sultry Sophie of course, then rampant Rebecca, then delicious Danielle. Actually, I saw Sophie in there once. She’d left her job as a supplier a couple of months after our Athenaeum Hotel antics. We had a drink at the bar and a fumble in the toilet. It was very nice. The touching I mean, not the toilet.
  • I always pulled my top up everytime I danced in front of the mirror wall as that was my stage hahahaaaa! Best last night there as that was the longest I held the area to dance at without others taking up the space so me and Lisa could use it up for our own dance amusements yeah! yeah!(^w^) the only night I brought a rubber band to not look like the grudge. Also flashed some workers there previous weeks, thinking they wanted me to lift my shirt up when they meant to say they liked my football top oops.
  • I am infatuated with one of the bar girls. Someone help me find her, please. I just can't stop thinking about her. She's the one in the middle.
  • Drinking 27 shots on the 27th of June 2012 because I had just had my 27th birthday. It was a weeknight and I wasn't shy about the karaoke. A great way to celebrate my first birthday in London. I remember singing the diet coke break song 'I just wan a make love to you' and not a lot else of the evening. Somehow I still made it to work the next day and I'm fairly certain I was still drunk at the time.
  • Took my straight mate here she fell over and got helped up 4 incredibly hot girls so I threw myself at the floor and got helped up by the same 4 we both agreed that it was the best falling over experience ever haha
  • I put my hands in her pants while we were in the queue to the coats #LOL
  • .
  • Me and this girl that I had only recently started dating went to Candy Bar together and met this super hot girl from Canada on holiday. We told an enormous lie that we were an engaged couple and befriended her. After we added her on facebook whilst we were drunk, we later came clean. She thought it was cute and funny so we all hung out again... ended up back at Candy...and then we all went home together. Was so incredibly hot!
  • This one time, at Candy, some woman took my entire earlobe into her mouth... ...WITHOUT EVEN SO MUCH AS A "HELLO" !
  • I was with my girlfriend the last friday ( on the 10th Jan ) . It was the first Time for us at the candy bar and also the last because we came from France and Switzerland. This night was really amazing. Thank you for the first and last night guys !!!! 1 girl wanted to be with me and her friend with my girlfriend, it was funny. Thanks girlzzzz
  • I made a girl cum whilst standing in the line for the cloakroom and we were so discreet nobody noticed. At least I think nobody noticed. Either that or they were quietly enjoying the show.
  • I NEED YOUR HELP! I want to find the girl with short brown hair that was singing at karaoke. Not the last monday but the monday before (on the 30th dec). If someone knows her, please leave a message on the timeline to be contacted.. ;)many thanks xoxo
  • Got so wasted on the day when Kate and William got married. 29 April 2011. There was a street party outside Candy bar that day. We started early I remember I made it coming in Candy bar. And I can not recall anything. Apparently I was being naughty grabbed number of girls inappropriate ways. And owned the pole on the stage for whole evening. The story my friends still remind me these days. May be I should apologise to those girls I might made feel uncomfortable that night ;-) That never stopped me going there because Candy was only place I felt completely accepted. Candy bar was major part of my lesbian life. Many Happy memories, funny memories, fantastic staff. We loved and gonna miss you dearly :-( Yesterday had a great night with my friends for the last time at Candy. Farewell Candy. Mogi. PS. the pic was taken that night :D
  • AG you make me crazy... you're the sexiest barista ever! F.G.
  • I am in love with DJ Caz :) hope we will have a coffee date soon :)
  • I am going to miss the ladies at the door, it was nice to see them every weekend. thanks for always taking care of us, carrying us out, breaking up fights, catching us in the toilets... oops..... and of course greating us at the door with a smile. love you ladies
  • I came to Candy bar with my date, who ended up kissing another girl... so I slaped her, and this is how i got my heart broken at Candy :(
  • Candy was the first gay club I'd ever been too. The night there was fantastic.. Surrounded by wonderful friends, and stunning ladies! Got a tad bit too drunk and thought I was gonna faint outside, but held it together! Got grabbed by a random (super hot!) woman to dance with her when I walked back inside, and I really wish I'd have had the courage to just go for it.. But I walked away. Had planned to make a return visit, but never got the chance :( Candy had such a relaxed atmosphere, made you feel comfortable and included, you can't get that anywhere else.. I had great plans for my next visit to Candy, a chance to be more confident.. I'll have to keep searching now..
  • The long brown haired girl working the bar Thursday night was gorgeous. Keep doing what you're doing cos it's perfect. X
  • When i first came to London from Pakistan, candybar was my first lesbian-bar encounter where i gradually developed the feeling of belonging. however, i do feel there should have been more brown/asian girls. I am definitely gonna miss this place, it's saddening me that it won't be there but i am happy there's gonna be another place where i am able to see similar faces i smoke out with! on other note, i have big fat crush on one of the bar girls :D nonetheless, all the best and much love :)
  • Candy was the first ever gay bar I went to, I've always felt so comfortable there it's very sad to see it go :( my confession is I accidentally set off the fire alarms there last time I visited, falling down those stairs was something I've done more than once! :D
  • I came here with the woman, i've since fallen in love with. It was our first date and my first gay club experience. One of the best nights of my life and I will always have fond memories of Candy, for that night and the fun times I've had there since. The bar staff are lovely, thanks for sharing your Xmas hats xxx
  • Candy was my first gay bar at the age of 30 having repressed it all for years, even married and had sproglets until finally starting the process 4 years ago. Held our first Bi girls meeting here and have had many since. Sad to see you go as you were the first place I had ever been where I felt so comfortable in a bar. Brilliant staff too and happy to say I was able to have my first date with my now girlfriend here :) Goodbye sweet Candy xxx
  • Me and my best friend from school came out to each other, she took me to candy for the first time and our first gay club we went to both together!! So sad candy is going!!! Memories forever!!!
  • Thanks to candy bar i met the most amazing woman(-J-),who stole my heart and mind, and gave a whole different meaning to the daft punk song get lucky ;)
  • Stamie K from the Real L World felt up my boobs! In front of both our wives.
  • This is an open apology to anyone who witnessed my friend and I murder Islands in the Stream at one karaoke night. Red Stripe and red wine do not mix.
  • Oh she just put a comment in here butterflies in my tummy again lol I feel silly all over again
  • Had a sweet night here for my 22nd birthday with the Girlfriend. It was also the first time i had been here. It was a talk that talk night which i didn't know, as we just randomly showed up, as I dont live in london. Pis*ed I never went here before. And now you close on my arse! Its a shame lol! I wont say what drunk birthday happenings happened in the toilets. Will leave that to your imaginations..

  • I once stuck some gum under a chair. I'm a rebel, I know. Also I'm really, really sorry.
  • Got horrifically drunk one night at Candy on an adventurous date with a man (was still undecided whether I was a total lesbian or bi)... went out and saw the most beautiful girl handing out flyers. I remember saying "people are so disappointing sometimes" (don't know why) and she responded from behind saying something I looked back, walked upto her and kissed her. We exchanged numbers and years later we're still in touch. I've had many girlfriends since but she will always have a special place in my heart.
  • Best job I've ever had so far with amazing colleagues and such fun customers.
  • There's been many a night spent at Candy Bar and I don't regret any. But the very best thing that happened to me (for which I will always love Candy's).... I met my girlfriend here and while people warned me that relationships started in Candy Bar will never last, we're still going strong two years later. I don't know if we'll fulfill the prophecy about relationships, but if it hadn't been for this amazing lesbian hub, I never would have been so happy. Not to mention that 4 years ago, I was a newbie in London and this bar showed me the way, with no judgment and lots of complications ;)
  • I met the first to girls whom I dated in the candy bar. When I lived in London I felt lonely very often but I always met lovely people when I came for a drink and I am truly going to miss the bar every time I travel to London from now on :(
  • I love candy bar so much it was the place that showed me the lesbian world. its a part of who I am today and the best thing about it was candy bar toilets was like a hotel room for me. the amount of girls I shagged in there was unreal. going to truly miss it
  • So I went there for the first time with my bezzie Ian. We looked at the menu, Him: What we getting? Me: Look! Blowjobs! Blowjobs in a lesbian bar is a good deal! We ordered around 15 I think. Spilled a shot or two on the table and the barmaid ,looking at the table, said , 'Who let you guys in here?!' Me : Ermm those bouncers at the door :S
  • I met the best friends in the entire world here and some rad, interesting girls over the past 7 years!
  • Over the years I have had naughty rendezvous with 7 different girls in your toilets and only got caught once. Thanks for not checking too often! ;)
  • Loved every single night in there specially as I was so into one of the bar staff, butterflies in the tummy.... I could not ask for a drink so my friend did it for me. I never said a word as she never noticed me not even one look :( but as platonic love goes for me that was it :) lol so silly
  • I kissed a girl that had a girlfriend. Who was in the bar. At the same time. And walked past, while we were kissing.
  • I once snogged 4 girls in one night here.
  • Mainly being pretty sweaty and hot here on the dance floor downstairs, on too many occasions. And I have invented some amazing dance moves downstairs. Still waiting for them to takeoff.
  • I once proposed to the bar maid here. And, it didn't go too well.
  • We've been lesbians for a long time and this is our first night at Candy Bar!!
  • Best nights at Candy have been a looooot of dancing downstairs and generally good nights
  • I've been here for 10 years so a lot!! But the best night I had here was the time I met someone from South Africa here.
  • I fell in love with the most amazing girlfriend the minute she walked in the door at Candy Bar.
  • Our first time at Candy Bar we've only been here for half an hour!!!
  • One of the worst things I've done here is not be very nice to the staff. One of the best things I've ever done here is meet my first girlfriend here.
  • I met my first girlfriend here.
  • One of the first nights we came here one of our friends was sick into a pint glass.
  • I've been to Candy Bar twice. But the first time I can't remember a single thing about.

  • We tend to take our clothes off a lot in here. Kind of like a guilty a pleasure.
  • I'm a straight girl and I go to Candy Bar!
  • Had the biggest fight of my life in this bar. My ex walked in with her new girlfriend which turned out to be the 'new friend' she had made when we were together. I was fuming and she was smirkin and it all kicked off
  • It was my first night at Candy Bar!
  • I had my first date my last girlfriend here and it was a fantastic relationship.
  • New Years Eve was one of the best nights I've had here. The music, the women, the atmosphere, the striptease, it was all good! Loved it.
  • The night met an American girl who was possibly 21 years old, who I apparently gave 'the night of her life'
  • I was in the toilet and got stuck in there one night and the bouncer had to knock the door down to get me out.
  • I broke a table once. By dancing on it. Sorry.
  • First time I go to meet a dj friend of mine, I meet a girl who decides to talk to me. I like her personality that I mess up and fall for her. I don't normally kiss in public but I kiss her. I dance against her after pinning her to the mirror as she doesn't dance. I lift her up from sitting under the stairs to show i like her to almost drop her as the floor is slippery. I sit on her lap to show how close I'd get in a lapdance to hear people saying whats a tomboy doing on a femme lol. Her name makes me think of the lion king. I like her story of her free tattoo on her foot of a 23. I still laugh about the embarrassing knocks and yells for us to get out of the bathroom stall as it did freak me out at the time, liked her calm demeanor as she held her head high while I just gave the weird I'm caught look. Well at least I enjoyed those times with her at candy bar before things changed our second meet during another stall incident. If she does read this I'm sorry about your sock i found in my jeans after going to yours, as I didn't keep it as a souvenir as you told me to, I wanted to return it to you but you changed your mind after the stall incident I wished we could have been friends after. If only you didnt give me an ultimatum, I would have gave in and let you score like you wanted as you gotten me to that point, which would have kept you acting your same lovely self rather than changing different in your character. But I did enjoy my time with you here when you were normal and nice as I still like that version of you.
  • I've done everything but meet someone for sex or have sex. Including wearing only underwear and pretending it was a complete outfit, with wings, and I am *always* that person not wanting to leave at 3/5am... #longlivetheCandyspirit #dance
  • If you knew how many times I had hit on a girl here that I knew had a girlfriend.... Sometimes it works in my favour. Sometimes, it REALLY does not.
  • She was hot. And it was #sweaty

  • It was a long time ago but I came in here once, went straight downstairs and ended up sleeping with a girl I didn't even speak to
  • I worked here for a while and one night there were 2 girls having sex in the loos, so I knocked on the door politely, asking them to come out. They didn't, so I knocked in the door and got them out.
  • I once had 2 bottles of wine, was sick in the loos and then back home to bed all before 7.30pm.
  • I may or may not have had sex with a girl on the sofa. In the window.
  • Being sick on the sofa and then just casually walking off as if nooooothing had happened.
  • Obviously I have done nothing bad here. Ever. Nothing. Ever.
  • I hooked up with a woman here who turned out to be 40. Which wouldn't be too bad. But I'm 18.
  • Last time I came in here I realised I had slept with the DJ 2 years ago
  • I'd been seeing this girl for a bit and things had fizzled out. Few days later, bump into her at Candy Bar on a date. My best friend went right up to her and tore her to pieces. Best night EVER.
