Gay clubs and bars in Las Vegas can be found throughout the city, but many are within a short cab or Uber ride from the Strip. The overall vibe at most Vegas gay clubs and bars is pretty relaxed. You’ll find an abundance of “dive bar” experiences, plus one pool party on the Strip – Temptation Sundays at the Luxor – and several fun spots in between.
Bastille on 3rd is a place that bills itself as the oldest gay bar in Las Vegas–and a recent remodel put on a fresh layer of paint but left the hole-in-the-wall appeal untouched. Be prepared for a cash-only evening at Bastille, which is also conveniently located close the bar and arts scenes in the Arts District and on East Fremont.
For a more diverse crowd, try FreeZone in the Fruit Loop District on Paradise Road or The Phoenix on West Charleston. Drag shows and karaoke are popular in both places, along with a host of great drink specials and all kinds of games, like darts, pool, and trivia.
For those looking for a predominately male clientele, Las Vegas has plenty of cowboy-themed gay bars and one with a gear-head theme, The Garage.
