There are plenty of gay bars dotted around the city, each one offering
something different. If you're looking for a fun night out full of giggles
then Black & White
at Libertad 34 is a great venue to visit. They have strippers on from
Thursday to Sunday (ideal for those on a long weekend break!) and two distinct
areas, each with its own different style and genre of music.
Another well-known gay bar is the
at Pelayo, 30. However, it's important to know that this is a slightly
more intense bar, with a leather bar, darkroom, and swing.

If that's up your alley, then you may also want to look into the Leather Club
at Pelayo, 42. This bar does have a dress code and it holds various theme
nights. In addition to this, it's ideally situated near the Chueca metro
You may also want to check out the
Loreto y Chicote, 7 (near the Callao metro stop). This sex bar hosts
multiple hardcore theme nights, so it isn't for the fainthearted. You can
find out more by visiting their website.
If you want to try a cocktail in a calmer location, El Apolo at Calle Barco 18 has a personal, intimate atmosphere, which helps make it a much-loved local venue in the heart of the new, up-and coming, trendy area of Madrid.
