Lisbon has recently become one of Europe’s most revered destinations, and it’s easy to see why. The charming streets, cheap beer and fantastic weather make it instantly loveable and the there are plenty of gay bars, especially considering the size of the city. Here are 5 of our favourites Lisbon gay bars.
This bar is a stalwart of the Lisbon gay scene and serves a good selection of beer and cocktails. The outdoor terrace is a popular draw for the post-work crowd and its location in the heart of the gay district makes it an excellent meeting spot before heading elsewhere
Despite many Lisbon gay bars having echoes of the 90s about them, Secret Bar is a stylish, contemporary offering that attracts and an equally trendy crowd.
This traditional bar was once a taverna and today still retains its former charm but with a gay crowd and cold beer. The translation of the name is ‘wide doors’, we’re not sure why but the friendly owner will probably fill you in if you ask them when you call in for a drink.
Woof LX Bar
What started out in 2010 with a community of bears seeking a space to socialize has now turned into one of the most popular gay bars in Lisbon. It gets especially busy on a Friday and Saturday night and is one of the few places with a more alternative edge.
A smaller counterpart to Woof LX, Woof X has a small dark room in the back and friendly bar staff. While this place isn’t always busy it’s certainly worth a visit on the off chance that you run into your Portuguese Prince Charming.
