Best Gay Bars & Clubs
We used to live in a world where most gay bars in Brussels were only full of men looking for men to hook up with. These days the lines have become a lot more blurred and most venues are more mixed LGBT style, and some are mixed gay and straight.
This is a good thing overall and there will be plenty of men looking to hook up at the mixed venues we just listed.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Brussels
Along the same vein we don’t know of any solely lesbian bars in Brussels for women to meet women. Visit the venues in the mixed list and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head out and find another place to try.
With that said Supra Bailly and Mothers & Daughters would be good places to start your search.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While they are not exactly trans bars in Brussels you can find drag shows that may lead you to ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Cabaret Mademoiselle
- Drag Show at Chez Maman
- Beurs Schouwburg Soirées Chaudières at Barlog
- La Boule Rouge
You know, we cover a whole bunch of cities and these scenes change very quick so it is difficult for our posts to stay perfect. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts.
If you could help us out and let us know about any errors we made or if anything is out of date on this page in the comments section at the end it would be great for us and for all of our readers.
Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs can be found in the LGBT nightlife area of Kolenmarkt and Saint Jacques Neighbourhood. Go out in those areas and you will be able to check out the various venues and find your favorite new spots!

Best LGBT Dating Sites
It used to be that gay bars were pretty much the only places to try and find other LGBT people for dating or hook ups. Luckily that isn’t the case anymore, and now we want to tell you about some of our favorite options.
We should also assume that not everyone reading this is fully ‘out’ at the moment and may not necessarily want to be spotted and get posted about on social media. Whatever your motivations are LGBT dating sites are a great way to meet people near you without having to get all dressed up and head to a gay or lesbian bar to do so.
The first sites we want to mention are mainly geared towards casual sex, they aren’t exactly dating sites. We bet most reading this have seen Adult Friend Finder links online before, it is the biggest hook up site on the planet and has been for almost twenty years.
Their top site for finding gay men near you to hook up with is Men Nation and it is very popular in major cities like this one. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals, and if you are bi-sexual and don’t have a preferred gender to hook up with then Adult Friend Finder is probably best for you because it covers all the user bases on their numerous sites.
So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. These sites are a nice and discreet way for you to fulfill your desires without visiting the LGBT bars, clubs, and nightlife.
We also want to mention MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Brussels is trending upwards because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Brussels LGBT nightlife and now you know where to go to find mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
