The Venue

Royal Vauxhall Tavern is a busy iconic London venue that provides a diverse cabaret, performance and club night setting for the entire LGBTQ+ community.

All of our events involve loud music, sudden movement, haze smoke, theatre and flashing lights, including some strobe effects and lasers, audiences are usually loud and excitable.

During the week we operate a mixed standing and seated cabaret setting and subject to ticket sales will determine table and chair availability and standing allocation. Friday, Saturday and Sunday it is standing only for dancing on club nights.



Royal Vauxhall Tavern welcomes all people with disabilities and access needs and we will try and assist with your access requirements.

We strongly advise you to contact us before your visit. Limited free personal assistance tickets are available for most events and we can try to reserve seating if needed, there are seats with an upward step to the raised area and small stools on ground level.

The RVT has an accessible main door, with a small ramp for wheelchairs and is flat throughout the main area. There are toilet cubicles that can be accessed without steps, but are not wheelchair accessible.

On busy events we can’t always guarantee a clear view of the stage for people in wheelchairs, and the cabaret area does get very busy.


Assistance Dogs

Royal Vauxhall Tavern is compliant with the Equalities Act 2010.

We operate a no dogs policy at The RVT as we do not consider it a safe environment for animals.

We know that assistance dogs are very important to many people in compliance with the Equality Act we allow access to fully trained assistance animals.

Assistance Dogs UK have advised us that it is not up to service providers to make judgement calls about how a disabled person accesses venues with their trained assistance dog, and whilst their accredited member organisations would not encourage assistance dog users to put their dogs in loud or extreme environments, they have confirmed The RVT cannot be held responsible for the dog’s well-being whilst on the premises and any liability for the animals behaviour must remain with the animal owner.


Please contact with any questions or to reserve seating or an assistant ticket.
