If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Fresno we can definitely give you an assist. This local LGBT nightlife guide will also cover subjects like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more.
What more? The big pride event that is held every year as well as the best LGBT dating sites. Not everyone likes to do things the same way so we are trying to cover all the bases so that you can go with the one that sounds best for your needs and desires.
Fortunately the lesbian and gay bars in your area aren’t the only option these days. We have covered quite a few cities on the West Coast at that link.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Fresno
Let’s kick this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Fresno:
- FAB at 716 E Olive Ave
- Alibi at 4538 E Belmont Ave
- The Red Lantern at 4618 E Belmont Ave

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Fresno for men to meet men you can go off that main list we just posted. Things were not near as inclusive back in the day, now most venues have become more LGBT friendly instead of being strictly local gay bars.
Unfortunately we heard Club Legends closed down so removed them from that list, a pretty big hit to the scene here.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Fresno
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Fresno for women to meet women. The mixed list is where you should start but if it doesn’t work out try other popular nightclubs around town whether they are known as LGBT hot spots in your area or not.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
OK, these are not trans bars in Fresno per se but you can find drag shows that may help you locate near you at:
- Drag Shows at FAB
- Fresno Drag Queen Dinner Shows
We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts. Our goal is to keep our lists as up to date as possible but we need your help to do so.
If anything on here is old news 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.
There really is not a main gay area here as things are spread out but some would consider the Tower District to be the gayborhood. You may also be interested in reading more of our posts on:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
Some of our younger readers may not even realize that local gay bars were pretty much the only places to try and find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups back in the day. Back in the day doesn’t mean 100 years ago either, try 20.
It is pretty fair to assume that most of you have seen Adult Friend Finder links online in the past. It is the world’s biggest biggest hook up site and has been for almost all of those 20 years we just mentioned.
Men Nation is their main site to use if you want to meet gay men near you for hook ups and you might be surprised at how many users it has in populated areas like this. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals that enjoy hooking up with all varieties can go with Adult Friend Finder. It combines all the users on their numerous sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and different types of fetishes.
So if you want quick and easy m4m hook ups turn to Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. We should also mention MyTransgenderDate, the world’s top transgender dating site. Trans dating in Fresno is booming at the moment just as it is all cross California and frankly the world because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Fresno LGBT nightlife as best as we know how. You learned all about mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs in your area plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites to have some fun with. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
