Those of you that want to learn more about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Lisbon can do so right here. This LGBT nightlife guide will also discuss topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more!
There are plenty of annual and more frequent pride events that also deserve a mention. And in this modern tech era it would be quite silly for us to leave out the best LGBT dating sites to use in Portugal.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are searching for gay bars and clubs in Lisbon for men to meet men you can go off that main list we just posted. We used to live in a world where things were far less inclusive, but these days most venues in Portugal have become more LGBT friendly instead of strictly gay bars. Don’t worry, men can meet men at plenty of spots around town.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Lisbon
The same can be said when it comes to trying to find a full on lesbian bar in Lisbon. You should be fine 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.
For those who really want a recommendation start your night at Primas.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Lisbon, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Finalment at R. da Palmeira 38 at 3 am
We really do attempt to keep these lists current but we cover so many cities around the world that perfection is impossible. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts who live in Portugal.
If you happen to notice anything out of date on here or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know.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.

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 options.
We also cannot assume that 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 brought to you by Adult Friend Finder. We bet you have 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 ladies is Lesbian Personals and it can help you get laid really quick. Those who enjoy hooking up with all genders can use Adult Friend Finder because it covers all the users on their numerous kinky sites.
We also want to mention the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Lisbon is more popular than ever before and will only continue to grow as more ts in Portugal feel confident enough to be the person they really want to be.
At this point we have covered the Lisbon 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 Portugal. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
