You might get called names 'homo', 'girl' etc etc, but I don't think it could affect your career prospects too much. How about non alcoholic beer?

As the title says, I am teetotal. I have only ever drunk on two occasions in my life and never want to again.
I want a career in Banking because I am fascinated by financial markets and the city. However, I have heard there is a predominant drinking culture in the industry. Many people say that the lifestyle of a Banker is all about 'models and bottles'.
The models part of that certainly appeals to me, yep me likey but alcohol is not for me.
Will I fit in or will I feel out of place in the industry?

Part of working in the City is all about networking and meeting clients ect... Drinking after work is standard for any trader in the city.
