Those who want to learn about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Munich can certainly do so right here. This LGBT nightlife guide will also discuss topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town and more!
After that we will discuss some interesting options for LGBT online dating, particularly for those who are more interested in hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship just yet. All of the best LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in the area will also be getting covered as the post goes on.
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 Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Munich for men to meet men all of the above should work out well, except for maybe the few you will see in our next section. We used to live in a world where things were more segregated, but these days most venues have become more LGBT friendly than strictly gay bars.
Don’t worry, the gay bars we just listed are great places for men to meet men.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Munich
Max Pett isn’t really a bar, in fact they don’t serve alcohol, but this vegan restaurant is a popular lesbian hang out.

We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Munich, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Fridays at NY Club
- Oberangertheater Drag Shows
Please use the comments to let us know if any bars or clubs we have posted are no longer open, or if any new LGBT hot spots have opened up. We also want to say that we know this scene pretty well but we are not local experts by any means.
If you think we should be listing any venues as strictly lesbian or gay bars in Munich be sure to fill us in. We have tried our best, but we can’t be perfect when covering the whole world.
Many of these gay or lesbian bars and clubs can be found in the LGBT nightlife areas of Glockenbachviertel and Gärtnerplatzviertel. Go do your partying in those parts of town and you will be able to check out the various venues and find out the right spots for your personal tastes.

Best LGBT Dating Sites
As many of us become more introverted going out to party at an LGBT bar or club may not be our preferred way to meet new people. Fortunately technology has opened up some new doors for us and now we have more options at are disposal.
Plus not everyone is fully ‘out’ yet and may not feel comfortable in that type of setting just yet. 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 mention here, 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 Munich you should look into it.
Lesbian Personals is a great option for women who want to hook up, and they are both run by Adult Friend Finder. You have probably seen their ads online before, they can mostly be found on porn and other adult sites.
Those that are hoping to find 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 all the colors in the rainbow. Serious relationships aren’t for everyone and these hook up sites can be a really solid wing man.
We also want to mention the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Munich is booming right now and we doubt that changes anytime soon.
At this point you should be fully caught up on the Munich LGBT nightlife. You have read 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.
