Those who are trying to find out about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Frankfurt can certainly do so right here. We will be discussing topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town the Bermuda Triangle along Alte Gasse and more.
This guide will also get into your best options for LGBT online dating, particularly for those who are more interested in hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship at the moment. Plus we will mention all of the best pride events and meet ups we know about in this city.
We all have our own personal preferences which is why we are trying to cover all the options so that you can go with whichever sounds best to you. Fortunately lesbian and gay bars in Frankfurt are no longer your only way to make this happen.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
It really wasn’t all that long ago that gay bars in Frankfurt were only full of men looking for men to hook up with. These days most places are more like mixed LGBT clubs, and some are mixed gay and straight. There will be plenty of men looking to hook up at the bars and clubs we just listed.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Frankfurt
The same can be said when it comes to trying to find a full on lesbian bar in Frankfurt. You should find what you are looking for at most of the bars or clubs from the mixed list and if there are not other lesbian women looking to meet women inside then it is time to try somewhere else.
If you really want a recommendation go to La Gata.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Frankfurt, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
We really want to keep our lists as current as possible but we cover so many cities around the world that perfection isn’t a fair expectation. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts.
If you happen to notice anything out of date on here or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Also, if you think any venues should be listed as solely places for men to meet men or women to meet women fill us in, thanks if you can help.
Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs can be found in the LGBT nightlife area of the Bermuda Triangle gayborhood along Alte Gasse. Many of the venues we listed are there and you should find just about everything you need in the gayborhood.

Best LGBT Dating Sites
It used to be that gay bars were pretty much the only places to try and find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups. Luckily those days are long behind us, and now we want to tell you about some of our favorite online dating sites.
We know that not everyone is in the same position as far as their status goes and there are probably people reading this who may not want to be seen at or have their photos taken at a gay bar. Whether you are cool with that or not you should not expect everyone to feel the same way as you do.
Our first sites to tell you about are owned and operated by Adult Friend Finder. You have probably seen the AFF links online before since they have helped millions of people hook up in their over fifteen years in the game. 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.
Their site for the women is Lesbian Personals and it also works great. Those who enjoy hooking up with all genders can use Adult Friend Finder because it covers all the users on their many different sexy sites.
MyTransgenderDate is without a doubt the easiest way to meet hot ts near you in this city and most around the globe. Trans dating in Frankfurt is more popular than ever and we doubt that changes any time soon.
At this point we have covered the Frankfurt 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 to hook up quick. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
