For those of you who may be traveling to gay Lisbon in the very near future, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of excellent gay shopping experiences to be had there. Recently, Lisbon has become known more and more as a top destination for LGBTQ travelers because of its beautiful weather, amazing history and wealth of gay shops, clubs and bars to suit everyone’s personal taste.
The first gay shop Lisbon locals recommend to gay international shoppers is Mr. Woof on Rua Ruben A. Leitão. Mr. Woof is a newer fetish and leather shop located in Principe Real. Despite its small size, this shop carries a nice range of clothing, accessories and toys to please even the most discerning shopper. Brand names include G-shock, Boxer, Fred Perry and Mr. B. It’s also open seven days a week from 4pm-midnight.
Mr. Woof's is definitely the place for fetish wear for bears, from koala bears to grizzly bears and everything in between. Since Portuguese men have a tendency towards being hairy and dark, it’s probably no surprise that Lisbon has a substantial community dedicated to bears and their many bear fans.
Another popular gay shop Lisbon residents are familiar with is UP!town Lisboa, a trendy men’s clothing store whose motto revolves around being different, being unique and being yourself. It’s located on Rua da Misericórdia, 68 (Chiado/Bairro Alto). UP!town Lisboa is open from 10:30am-8pm Monday through to Saturday, and 1pm-7pm on Sundays and public holidays. They carry popular brands including Addicted, Andrew Christian, Armisticie, Ajaxx63, Ben Sherman, Bjorn Borg, Cohibas, Diesel, ES Collection, Ganesh, Henry Cotton’s, Hom, Merc, and Scotch and Soda.
Any gay shop Lisbon list wouldn’t quite be complete without a mention of Menspot. This place offers anything from sexy wear, underwear and ever-popular gay brands including Andrew Christian, Barcode and Kicksagat. From socks to tank tops, workout wear and much more, Menspot has you covered.
