Barcelona’s Gay Scene Is Only Getting Bigger, Brighter And Better!
More and more people in the gay community are choosing to go to Barcelona. It’s not hard to see why. As residents to Barcelona, you can see the scene expanding on what feels like a daily basis.
Barcelona is arguably the gay capital of Europe and even the world. A combination of its very progressive and open culture and the city’s booming economy has allowed more and more and better and better venues to spring up all over Barcelona. Barcelona even has an entire district dominated almost exclusively by the gay community.
Don’t just rely on the taxi driver! It’s easy to overlook the best places to go, if you arrive and try to muddle through yourself. We’ve been through the muddle for you so you can save time, save money and focus on just enjoying yourself!

Exclusive Member Deals At Barcelona’s Best Gay Bars
Even in major cities, it can be really hard to find gay bars. Barcelona doesn’t have this problem. They’re everywhere! The only thing which can be difficult is choosing the right one to go to. Where should you go if you’re a twink, a jock, an otter, a bear, a wolf? Does it have drag shows? What about age? What about the type of bar and restaurant? Somewhere quiet? Somewhere lively? The agony of choice!
So much information on the internet is either out of date, wrong or just not there. It can be so frustrating knowing that the bar of your dreams is just round the corner but you don’t know how to find it. We couldn’t believe no one was taking the time to give accurate and up-to-date information about some of the most famous places in Barcelona.
That’s why we’ve done it! We’ve listed the best places and assessed exactly who they would be right for. If you find it helpful, you’ll love the Barcelona Gay Escape!
- El Berro is a great choice of restaurant. It's in the centre of the gay scene. It has great food, a fun atmosphere, it's reasonably priced and it has unusually fast service!
- Arie is a great place for the ladies to dance the night away. The most consistently popular venue in the lesbian community.
- Bacon Bear Bar is one of Barcelona's most famous bars for bears. The clue's in the name! Well located & very friendly.
- What makes People Lounge different is that it is different. An original theme, modelled on a New York theatre bar. Unapologetically retro music. Great location. If you're 30+ this should be on your itinerary.
- Museum Bar is one of the most famous pre-club venues in Barcelona. It's always busy. It's always fun.
- La Chapelle is small but intimate and very social. It's a great place to meet people. Right in the centre of the gay district.
- Botànic Bar Cafè is a great place for a quiet drink with mates (in the back garden) or a loud drink with strangers (inside). Central to all the action and does food too!
- Culture Club is a relatively new bar which has quickly earned a place in the gay scene of Barcelona. Friendly atmosphere plus a giant dance floor downstairs.
Exclusive Member Deals At Barcelona’s Best Gay Nightclubs
There are so many great gay clubs in Barcelona to choose from. The biggest gay club chain in Barcelona is ‘Grupo Arena’. Arena has clubs just for the weekend such as ‘Arena VIP’ and ‘Arena Classic’ but it also manages to consistently draw crowds on the weekdays to places like ‘Arena Madre’, ‘Sala Tango’ and ‘Aire’. ‘Metro’ is another great example of this. These are just some of the big names but there are so many to choose from. It’s really important to find out about a club before going and don’t just trust ‘some guy’ you heard.
Going to a place once isn’t enough to get a good understanding. Many of the clubs change their themes from night to night. ‘Safari Disco Club’ is a good example of this. It’s also an expensive risk. Some clubs charge 20 euros or more for entry. Have a look through our club pages or get our Barcelona Gay Escape and find the right club for you!
- Arena Madre is probably the most popular gay club in Barcelona. Even on a weeknight in mid-winter there will be plenty of guys here.
- Safari Disco Club is new to Barcelona. The dates and times here vary because they theme their nights. It's like a different club every time. It's original and it's quickly gaining popularity.
- Arena VIP is one of the most popular venues on a Saturday night. Cool place, cool music, fun people (and lots of them!).
- Metro Disco is one of the biggest gay club names in Barcelona. It's central and open every night of the week.
- Sala Tango is a great Gay Nightclub. Fun all week and its transition into Arena VIP on Saturdays is legendary.
- Arena Classic is a well-known and much-loved club venue in Barcelona. This should definitely be an option if you're going out on a Friday or Saturday!
Exclusive Member Deals At Barcelona’s Best Gay Cruising Spots
Barcelona has lots of gay cruising options. If you know what you like, it’s easy. We’ve listed some of the best cruising options so have a look through and see what fits you best, like buying shoes! Maybe you love gay saunas? There are lots of gay saunas in Barcelona but check out our reviews for the very best. If you get the Barcelona Gay Escape, you can even go inside and check it out before paying. It can be an expensive mistake!
- Sauna Casanova is by far the most popular sauna in Barcelona. Right in the centre of town, near all the other big gay venues, it's easy to get to and draws a good crowd.
- Night Barcelona is a great cruising bar located in the heart of the gay district of Barcelona (Eixample). Ticks every box!
- Boyberry is the best-known cruising venue in Barcelona. It's central, popular and has all the facilities you need.
- Open Mind is one of the best fetish clubs in Barcelona, accommodating lots of different fetishes. It's also easy to get to and near the main gay area of the city.

Barcelona: Your Gay Escape Paradise
Welcome to Barcelona! It’s easy to say ‘welcome’ but to actually be welcoming is a very different thing. Barcelona, however, is one of the most tolerant, inclusive and progressive cities in the world. Why is Barcelona so progressive? It’s young. Barcelona attracts a lot of young people. Students from America, Canada and the UK (to name a few) flock here and some don’t leave!
The weather and surrounding geography is a huge reason people want to come here. Barcelona has numerous beaches (including Mar Bella, the famous gay beach) within the city itself and stretching north and south, along the Mediterranean coast. The Pyrenees are easy and cheap to get to for skiing and snowboarding. To the west is Montseny, full of rolling green hills to go hiking and vineyards are peppered all over Catalunya.
The gay scene in Barcelona is thriving. Add a young, progressive city to great weather and the perfect location and you get one of the best gay scenes in the world. It really does have it all!
Want more proof? Here are just a few of the things you need to know about Barcelona’s Gay Culture!

Some Of Our First Few Barcelona Gay Escape Reviews
I’ve been to Barcelona before and I never knew about half these places. I really missed out but better late than never. The entire Eixample area was a real gem and we were able to check out 5 places in one night! I've met a few friends I KNOW I'll be coming back to visit
- Levi W. (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
I was worried there wouldn’t be enough “ L” in the LGBT scene but I’m happy to say I was mistaken. I'm glad the guide told me which places would suit my tastes best, I’ll be back soon!
- Angela T. (Aberdeen, Scotland)
So often I meet Gay tourists on a night out who have no idea where to go. I bought this map for a friend because I wasn’t in town. Now I know she won’t waste her time with the few nights she has it town. Simple!
- Jay L. (AB, Canada)
