Las Vegas

In a city where Elvis can marry anyone on a whim, it’s not surprising that love in all forms is celebrated. The LGBT community is as welcome here as an ace in the hole, and two gay scenes attest to that. The whimsically and affectionately nicknamed “Fruit Loop” district on Paradise is home to some of the most fun, irreverent entertainment in Vegas; here, three strip malls flank gay bars and the Gipsy Nightclub. The Commercial Center, just off Sahara, is a bit edgier, offering two bathhouses and a collection of bars. In addition to these, there are plenty of strictly queer venues throughout Sin City. Visit Charlie’s Las Vegas, recently named “Best Gay Bar to Meet New Friends” by Naked Boy News, or go old-school by veering off to Bastille on 3rd (formerly Snick’s Place), the oldest gay bar in the city. 

But with a decadent, live-well, party-hard philosophy prevalent in this city, don’t by any means feel limited to these choices. Plenty of stunning clubs spread across the Strip provide sophisticated settings for social butterflies. Make like a moth and flit to the bright lights of the area’s best resorts for amazing LGBT pool parties, plus mixed dance clubs, glitzy bars, and world arenas host to legendary singers, comedians, illusionists, and more. You’ll never be far from the world-famous gaming, or the celebrity-chef fine dining that’s recently become as legendary as the casinos and nightlife. Indulge yourself! Because Babylonian excess…thy name is Las Vegas
