Hey there everybody! If you are looking for info on the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Gothenburg 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 plenty more.
We will also be mentioning the 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. The best LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in this city will get a quick shout out as well.
Some people like to party, others don’t really want to hang out in lesbian or gay bars all night and because of that we will attempt to give you as many options as possible and then you can choose which way you wish to proceed.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Gothenburg
Let’s start this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Gothenburg:
- Haket Pub at Forsta Langgatan 32
- Ruby Bar at Kungsportsavenyn 24
- Bee Kok & Bar at Kungstorget 14-16
- Gretas at Drottninggatan 35
Best Gay Bars & Clubs
Many would consider most of the above as gay bars in Gothenburg for men to meet men. You should be able to have good success at any of them.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Gothenburg
Currently we are not aware of any solely lesbian bars or clubs in Gothenburg, 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 Gothenburg, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at Gretas which puts on some great drag shows. You might also find them at any of the other venues listed here, as well as the popular LGBT events that we will mention in our next section.
Look, trying to differentiate between a strictly gay bar or a mixed LGBT bar can be pretty difficult. We did our best to try and differentiate between the two, but we aren’t going to claim we did a perfect job.
If you disagree or if we just posted any out of date information then please tell us in the comments below so that our lists can be as correct and up to date as possible.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 Haga neighborhood.
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. We should point out this is not a strictly gay area like you find in some cities, it is just where some of the venues from this post are located.

Best LGBT Dating Sites
As many of us become more introverted going out to party at an LGBT bar or club may not be the way we like to try and meet new people. Luckily technology has opened up some new doors for us and now we have many more options to choose from.
Plus not everyone is fully ‘out’ yet and may not feel comfortable in that type of setting just yet. Whatever your motivations are LGBT dating sites can be 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 of them 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 men in Gothenburg you should look into it.
Lesbian Personals is a really good lesbian hook up site, and they are both run by Adult Friend Finder. You have probably seen their ads online before, they can mostly be found on porn, sex, or other adult sites.
Guys that are searching for other gay men near you to hook up with can use Men Nation to get the job done quickly. 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 covers the whole gambit. Serious dating isn’t for everyone 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 reading this may also want to know about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Gothenburg is more popular than ever before and will only continue to grow as more ts feel confident enough to live the life that they know they were truly meant to live.
At this point we have covered the Gothenburg LGBT nightlife as well as we know how. 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. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
