Are you looking for the best gay bars in Barcelona? You definitely came to the right place. If you think the city’s beaches are hot, you haven’t seen anything yet! The Barcelona gay bars locals and tourists love include BoysBar BCN, Punto, its neighbour La Chapelle and El Cangrejo.
If you're the type of person who prefers keeping the action as close as possible, those staying at Axel Hotel can sip cocktails from its very own Sky Bar, a roof terrace with a fantastic view of the city. Non-hotel guests are welcome, too.
Also in Gayxample, Versailles is another great choice. Filled to the brim with exotic and vintage décor, you’ll feel more like you’re in a French château than a Spanish cevezeria.
Or, if you love all things big and beautiful, try Bacon Bear Bar. Hirsute hunks flock here with hopes of finding their next papa, otter or baby bear (oh, and some free bar snacks!).
If twinks and classic hunks are more your thing, late night dance bar Museum fills up at weekends, attracting young, 20 and 30-somethings going crazy for Katy Perry and Gaga on the video screens. But don’t turn up before 1am or you’ll be dancing by yourself!
Many kick-off their night here before heading on to party at nearby Metro, the shirts-off, muscle magnet Pervert (house/techno, Saturdays, not as kinky as the name suggests), The Black Room (house, Sundays), pop party Arena (daily), and the ever-popular Metro (also daily).
Alternative gay Barcelona
Want something a bit different? Then check out the Barcelona alternative gay scene that can be found in the Raval, Poble Sec and now-mega-trendy San Antoni districts.
Vintage-style La Federica attracts beardy alt boys and the fabulously trashy Madame Jasmine are the best alternative gay bars in Barcelona.
Many hip - and trashy - monthly parties are held nearby including La K, Somoslas (house/techno) and the crazy Sunday tea-dance Churros con Chocolate (always packed).
Check out Churros at the Apolo club to see how locals (or locos!) really like to party. Indeed, with so many different clubs and gay bars, Barcelona has everything you need for a hot time.
