The Duke of Wellington
The Duke of Wellington is a gay pub in Wardour Street, Soho. It went gay on 11 September 2001.
"The Welly officially opened as a predominately gay bar on 9/11. We decided to carry on and open on that day as we thought a united front was the best message."[1]

It was previously called the "Rat and Parrot".

The Gay & Lesbian Underwater Group have monthly social evenings there.
