The Star of Bethnal Green is not normally a queer pub, but at the Bop no homophobia, transphobia, racism, fatphobia or any other nastiness will be tolerated – please speak to DJs or door staff if you have ANY concerns on the night and they will be immediately addressed. The venue is in the process of signing up to the Good Night Out campaign and is committed to ensuring the best possible environment for boppers.

What is Unskinny Bop?

Unskinny Bop is a queer disco for fatz, fagz and freakz of all persuasions. We play pop, rock’n’roll, girl groups, r’n’b, disco, punk etc etc etc. Lots of lovely people tend to come. Our friend Dr. Bill Savage makes amazing handmade posters. (You can steal the small photocopied ones, if you must, but please not the cut’n’paste collages.) We tend to get full up very early, and we really hate queues so please come early! Alex (Ghost School/Creep Club) is our regular guest deejay, they are beacon of joy in our miserable lives. If you’re planning a birthday party at the Bop, let us know *in advance* if you have particular song requests so we can try to accommodate them.
