Hey there, if you are looking for info on the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Bucharest we have you fully covered. This LGBT nightlife guide will also discuss topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town and more!
We will also be talking about the best options for LGBT online dating in Romania, particularly for those who are more interested in hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship anytime soon. In addition we will mention all of the best Romania LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in this city.
Not everybody likes to go out to a lesbian or gay bar or nightclub to try and meet people, so we will try to cover the full gambit. We have covered plenty of cities in Europe if you are looking for new places to explore.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Bucharest
Let’s start this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Bucharest and all of Romania:
- Phoenix Pub at Cotroceni 16
- Control Club at Str. Constantin Mille 4
- Eden Club at Palatul Stirbei, Calea Victoriei 107
- Gaia Boutique Club at Strada Tarmului 19
- Thor’s Hammer at Strada Blănari 12

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you wanted to visit a mostly gay bar in Bucharest for men to meet men Thor’s Hammer may be your go to spot. But let’s face it, any of the above mentioned mixed LGBT venues should be fine for that.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Bucharest
At this time, we don’t know of any solely lesbian bars or clubs in Bucharest or anywhere in Romania, if you do please mention them in the comments at the bottom of the page.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Bucharest, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at Thor’s Hammer. There might be some other drag events at other gay clubs from time to time as well.
Look, trying to differentiate between a strictly gay bar or a mixed LGBT bar isn’t always easy. We did our best to try and differentiate between the two, but we aren’t sure that everyone would agree.
If you disagree or if we just posted any out of date information then please tell us in the comments section so that our lists can be as correct and up to date as possible. Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs can be found in the LGBT nightlife area of Floreasca.
Go do your partying in that part of town and you will be able to check out the various venues and find out the right spots for your personal tastes. It is not a strictly LGBT area by any means, but it is as close to a Romanian gay area as you will find. You can also read our posts on:
Weekly, Monthly, & Pride Events
Here are some of the best LGBT events that occur on a weekly or monthly basis:
- Several events at Control Club
- Also other events at Expirat Club, Eden Club and Gaia Boutique Club
And then there is Bucharest Pride, the biggest LGBT Pride event in Romania held every June.
Best LGBT Dating Sites
Let’s face it, going out to an LGBT bar or club isn’t for everyone. Sure, there will be some drunk people around you might be able to hook up with, but you have to deal with being around a bunch of drunk strangers which can be fun, but isn’t always.
Plus not everyone is fully ‘out’ at the moment and may not feel comfortable in that type of setting just yet. Whatever your reasons or 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.
We have a few options to tell you about, and the first ones are mostly geared towards casual sex, not full on serious dating. Men Nation is a really good gay dating site for hook ups, and if you want to hook up with gay guys in Bucharest you should look into it.
Men looking for other gay men near you to hook up with can use Men Nation to get the job done right. Women who want to meet lesbian women would be best off using Lesbian Personals, and those who are bi-sexual and like all types can check out Adult Friend Finder which is where you can find everybody. Serious relationships aren’t for all of us and these sites are a great way to hook up for those that don’t enjoy partying in the LGBT bars, clubs, and nightlife.
Some of you may also be curious about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Bucharest is more popular than ever before and will only continue to grow as more Romanian ts feel confident enough to be the person they really want to be.
At this point we have covered the Bucharest LGBT nightlife in full. You know all about the best mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites in Romania. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
