During the summer, the Luxor selects certain Sundays to host Temptation, where their pool becomes the hottest gay club in town. Luxor brings the DJs and drinks, and the patrons bring the bodies and party.
Leather-wearing patrons are the norm at this gay hangout. Late night the bar can get a little crazy, but refuge can always be found in the video poker games set up inside.
Located in Tropicana Plaza, this gay-friendly bar hosts frequent theme nights and always has karaoke. Want a free drink? Just take on karaoke -- in your underwear.
Between the cheap drinks, old-school country jukebox, pool tables, dart boards, and theme nights, this gay bar stays busy and relatively crowded. The easygoing atmosphere and local crowd make it a fun place to spend a night.
You won't mistake the theme at this spot: it's country-western through and through. Line dancing and country music are the norm, plus they run special events like Drag Queen Trivia Tuesdays.
With all the features of a successful nightclub (VIP section, bottle service, and a crowded dance floor for grinding), it's no surprise that SHARE has become a popular gay hangout. If you're looking for a more relaxed, less crowded area, they also have an upstairs lounge.
Even on nights when there isn't an event the dancefloor at Piranha rivals those of on-strip establishments. They frequently play host to well-known drag queens and are an active part of Gay Days Las Vegas, and the cozy outdoor patio is a great spot to cool off from the dance floor.
FreeZone is home to one of the longest running drag shows in Vegas. 'Drag Madness' runs on weekends, but the rest of the week has events as well -- like Sunday night Ladies' Night and Thursday Boys' Night, plus karaoke other nights.
Two nights a week Flex hosts popular drag shows Flamboyance and What a Drag! But the rest of the week isn't exactly boring: they have pool tables, karaoke, happy hours, and male strippers (!!).
This friendly spot is more calm than some of its Fruit Loop counterparts, with pool tables, dart boards, and a jukebox instead of a dancefloor and DJ booth. It has a following of regulars and relaxed, friendly bartenders.
Bastille used to be Snick's Place, which is considered one of Vegas' first gay bars. It's a little hard to find, but worth it. They run three happy hours: morning (11am-2pm), noon (4pm-7pm), and night (11pm-2am).
This laid-back, lounge-y bar is a popular gay hangout and offers karaoke, pool, and a dance floor -- like many of the other bars in the area. But this bar also has Super Mario Bros, a Nintendo Wii, and a giant projector screen to play it on (!!).
They take the theme very seriously at this bar: names of drinks include the "Drive Shaft" and "Fuel Injector" and bartenders are called "mechanics." The assortment of televisions, bar games (pool, darts, shuffleboard), and the fun crowd make it a popular spot.
