How to Find the Best Gay Bars While You are Away From Home

Whether you are going on vacation or moving to a new city, knowing where the local hot spots are can ensure you’ll be able to unwind at the end of a stressful day or week. In some cities, it isn’t hard to find a gay bar or other entertainment venue that caters to LGBTQ clients. In others, though, gay-friendly establishments are still underground and take some research to find. Don’t worry, though. There are ways to find local bars or clubs in a new city.

If you have a friend in the new city, they may be able to steer you in the right direction. However, if they have never been to the gay bar they refer you to, be sure to get more information before you head out. Your straight friend may have good intentions but just not enough information to help you find the best bar in the city where you can hang out with other gay men in an atmosphere that is comfortable for you. Most cities have more than one gay bar. If you prefer a club-type atmosphere, you might not be happy in a quiet bar. Chances are, the city you are visiting or moving to has both.

One of the most effective ways to find gay bars in a new city is through an online review site. By checking online before you leave your house or hotel room, you can learn about other people’s experience with the bars you plan on visiting. You’ll save yourself time and money by checking online reviews first. It is important to find a comprehensive review site that includes the bars in clubs in your city. Some sites only include the bars in major cities with thriving gay communities such as Atlanta, San Francisco and New York.

Most cities, no matter how small they are, have at least one gay bar. Without a good source of information, finding the one or two bars in the town can be difficult. However, by using an online guide, you can easily locate the best bars, clubs, beaches and other establishments that cater to the LGBTQ population in that area.
