Best Gay Bars & Clubs
We used to live in a world where most gay bars were only full of Porto men looking for men to hook up with. These days the lines have become a lot more blurred and most venues are more mixed LGBT style, and some are mixed gay and straight.
Don’t worry, there will be plenty of men looking to hook up at the mixed venues we just listed.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Porto
The same can be said when it comes to trying to find a strictly lesbian bar in Porto. Head to any of the bars or clubs from the mixed list and if there are not other lesbian women looking to meet women inside then move on to the next place.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Porto, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Invictus Café
- Café Lusitano
If you notice anything out of date on this post please tell us in the comments below so that our lists can be as correct and up to date as possible.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 Praça da Batalha and Vitória.
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. Be sure to look through our LGBT guides on all these cities if you plan to visit any in the future:
Weekly, Monthly, & Pride Events

Best LGBT Dating Sites
Let’s face it guys, going out to an LGBT bar or club isn’t for everyone. Sure, there will be some drunk people around you might be able to hook up with, but you have to deal with being around a bunch of strangers which not everybody likes doing.
Plus not everyone is fully ‘out’ yet and may not feel comfortable in that type of setting at the moment. Whatever your reasons or motivations are LGBT dating sites are a great way to meet people near you without having to go out to do so.
We have a few options to tell you about, and the first are more geared towards casual sex than 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 Porto 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.
If you are looking for other gay men near you to hook up with use Men Nation to get the job done quickly and discreetly. 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. Marriage 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 and nightlife.
We also want to mention the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Porto is really growing in popularity and will only continue to do so as more ts feel confident enough to be the person they really want to be.
At this point we have covered the Porto 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. Now choose the best option for you and enjoy yourself.
