Rupert Street is a street in London’s Soho district, running parallel to Wardour Street and crossing Shaftesbury Avenue. It is named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine, a German prince who was a leading figure in the English Civil War.
Rupert Street was first mentioned in records in 1677, and was originally home to a mix of residential and commercial properties. However, the street’s character changed in the early 20th century, when it became a popular destination for the city’s gay community. Today, Rupert Street is home to a number of gay bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as a few independent shops.
