Gay bars Nightlife

Chiringuito Gay

Open every day in Summer, it gets particularly busy on Sundays when the line of speedo-clad hotties queuing for mojitos gets criminally long and cruisy.


Enough bling-bling in this Gayxample bar to make Marie Antoinette choke on her cake.

Mary Boone

On the border of Gayxample, this plush cocktail lounge packs more marys than just the name.

Bòtanic Bar Café

When you’re looking more to chill than party, a Gayxample watering hole with an open air courtyard.

Tauleta de Nit

Right next to the Axel Hotel and with half-price drinks compared to its neighbour, a Gayxample bar to warm up.


Zeltas, Marlene, Addicted, and now Woofy. Hairy chubbies and their admirers.

El Cangrejo Eixample

People sing along to the music here, but unless you’ve called this country home for a good while, don’t expect to be able to join in.

Sky Bar by Axel

The venue is agreeable enough and there’s always something going on, but it’s during the summer months that the Sky Bar by Axel rules.

La Chapelle

Bring all your smooth moves – in the literal sense – to squeeze into this popular Barcelona watering hole.

Col·lectiu Gai de Barcelona

Let’s be honest and upfront: Cheap drinks – real cheap drinks – is the main attraction here.


They could’ve left the entire room in a shambles and nobody would’ve noticed, as all of the action takes place by the full-length windows.

Bim Bam Bum

Run by a couple of veteran party promoters, expect both the staff and the customers to boast deep gene pools, with lots of guapos and tios buenos.

La Penultima

Relaxed and friendly, it’s one of the favoured hangouts of the twink and fashion-on-a-budget crowd, who like the kitsch, mismatched décor and cheap drinks.


A predominantly young, camp and suburban crowd liven up the place, as do the regular live shows on the small dance floor in the back.

Bacon Bear

What it lacks in décor, it makes up for in facial hair.

Punto BCN

Part of the Arena group, but whereas the discos attract bait for cradle robbers, Punto draws a markedly more mature crowd.
