Visit San Antonio's Gay Clubs and Bars for Unforgettable Drinks & Dancing

There's no denying that most of the best gay clubs and bars in San Antonio can be found along the strip. This burgeoning neighborhood is a popular one for all those LGBT-friendly as well as college students, being that it's located next to San Antonio College.

One of the newest gay haunts in town is Knockout. Not just a sports bar, it's also a pizza joint, so you can satisfy multiple cravings at once. Enjoy happy hour every day from 4 - 11 pm and 75 cent wells on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 pm to close. Now those are prices that are hard to beat, even in San Antonio!

Head to the Heat if you're looking to dance the night away. They also host shows and special events such as art exhibits. Check their website for details. If you love dancing, you'll also want to visit the Bonham. They not only have one big dance floor, but three!
