About Ku

The Ku brand was born on 7th December 1995 when Ku 1st opened at 75 Charing Cross Road. 

The Bar moved address from Charing Cross Road, 12 years later in Feb. 2007, to it's now iconic site on Lisle Street off Leicester Square.

The Brand owned independently by Gary Henshaw has gone from strength to strength over the last few years expanding to include Ku Bar Frith Street and London's iconic lesbian Candy Bar now called Ku Bar Girls. 

"I never thought we would come this far with Ku. It amazes me how many people worldwide know and love the Brand... wherever I travel someone will approach me and praise Ku London. Of course it’s all down to the massive team behind me, from the management & office staff to the amazing DJs and of course the generations of Ku Bar Boys. The last 17years have been an absolute joy.... Here's to the next and to all of you, our Loyal Staff & Customers, who make Ku Great, Thank You"
