If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Nottingham you are in the right place. We will also be discussing topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more in this LGBT nightlife guide.
There are numerous 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.
Not all of you will be interested in going out to a lesbian or gay bar or nightclub to try and meet people near you so we will try to cover all the bases so that you can pick out which option you prefer. You can look through a huge list of our gay travel guides for Europe at that link.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Nottingham
Let’s kick this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Nottingham:
Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Nottingham for men to meet men you will find what you need at the above to spots. We used to live in a world where things were far less inclusive, but these days most venues have become more LGBT friendly instead of strictly gay bars. Don’t worry, men can meet men at plenty of spots around town, including plenty of venues that aren’t known as being gay hang outs.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Nottingham
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Nottingham for women to meet women. The mixed list is about all that we know of and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head out and find another place to try.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Nottingham you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
We really do attempt to keep these lists as up to date as we can but we cover so many cities around the world that it is very hard for us to keep everything perfect. 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If you happen to notice anything out of date on this page or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Or 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 one main gay area or gayborhood that we know of here. You may also be interested in reading our posts on:
Weekly, Monthly, & Pride Events
Nottingham Pride is the only annual LGBT event we know of in this city and it is held at the end of July each year. You can also check out the weekly Badminton Social events which are very LGBT friendly.
Best LGBT Dating Sites
Trying to find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups was a lot more difficult back in the day. Gay or lesbian bars were pretty much your only choice, but fortunately that isn’t how it is anymore.
It is also fair to assume that not everyone here is in the same position as far as status goes and there are probably some who won’t be too keen on having their photos taken at a gay bar. We bet most of you have seen Adult Friend Finder links online before, it is the biggest hook up site in Europe and the US and has been for almost twenty years.
Men Nation is their main site for finding gay men near you to hook up with and it will work out better than you expect. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals that don’t have a preferred gender to hook up with can go with Adult Friend Finder. It combines all the users across all of their various sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and all kinds of kinks and fetishes.
So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. MyTransgenderDate is the world’s top transgender dating site and it has taken off like a rocket ship recently. Trans dating in Nottingham is bigger and better than ever as more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Nottingham LGBT nightlife as best as we know how. You learned all about mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites to choose from. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
