Boston Gay Bars Overview

Club Café - Café | Gay Bar | Gay Club | Lounge in Boston

With a booming LGBT population, Boston’s gay bars are some of the city’s hottest spots. While there are gay bars scattered throughout the various neighborhoods, most are concentrated in the South End, the area of the city with the densest gay and lesbian population.

Club Café in the Back Bay has been the go-to bar in the gay community for nearly thirty years. Upscale restaurant, dance club, and live music venue all rolled into one, the bar is crowded most nights of the week with flirty singles and trendy young professionals sipping martinis and getting their groove on amid the large video screens on the dance floor. A variety of theme nights including drag bingo, trivia, karaoke, and retro video night offer something for every taste.

Cozy Sister Sorel in the South End offers a more intimate experience, with only seven tables and a handful of bar seats available. Couples hold hands in the dim light and sip a glass of wine or a craft cocktail from the extensive menu.

One of the most popular gay nightlife events is “Guerilla Queer Bar.” While not a bar per se, each first Friday of the month a swarm of exuberant gay and lesbian singles descend on a spot in the city, transforming it into a gay bar for the night. Venues are announced the day before at

Whether you’re out to meet a sexy stranger or enjoy a romantic evening with your significant other, the gay bars in Boston provide a scene for every occasion.
