If you want to learn more about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Reno 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.
Of course the famous pride events will be getting a shout out. And since we all have devices attached to us it would be odd for us to leave out the best LGBT dating sites.
Not everyone likes to do things the same way so we are trying to cover all the bases so that you can go with the one that sounds best for your needs and desires. Fortunately lesbian and gay bars are no longer your only way to make this happen.
You can look through a huge list of our posts on North America here.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Reno
Let’s kick this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Reno:
- Faces NV at 239 W 2nd St
- 5 Star Saloon at 132 West St
- Cadillac Lounge at 1114 E 4th St
- Splash Bar at 340 Kietzke Ln
Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Reno 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 have become more LGBT friendly instead of strictly gay bars for men to hook up at.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Reno
We also are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Reno for women to meet women. The mixed list should have plenty of options for you and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head then you may need to try some bars or nightclubs that aren’t known as LGBT hot spots and cross your fingers.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Reno you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Fierce Friday’s Drink Drag Dance at Splash
- Drag Shows at Faces NV
- Drag Shows at 5 Star Saloon
- Illusions The Show
Our main goal is to keep all of our lists as up to date as possible but we cover so many cities around the world that it is very hard for us to keep up. 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If you happen to notice anything out of date on this page or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Along those lines 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 is no specific gay area or gayborhood in this town but you may be interested in reading our posts on:
- LGBT Nightlife in Las Vegas
- LGBT Nightlife in Sacramento
- LGBT Nightlife in San Francisco
- LGBT Nightlife in Fresno
Noche Latina Saturdays at Splash are some of the best LGBT parties you will find anywhere and the Reno Gay Pride events are always a can’t miss.
Best LGBT Dating Sites
Gay bars were just about the only places to try and find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups twenty years ago. Fortunately the internet has really broadened those horizons.
We bet you have seen Adult Friend Finder links online before because it is the biggest hook up site on the planet and has been for almost twenty years. Men Nation is their top site to use to meet gay men near you to hook up with and you might be surprised at how many users it has.
The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals and the name of that site pretty much gives away what it is all about. Bi-sexuals that like to hook up with all the colors of the rainbow can go with Adult Friend Finder.
It combines all the users on their wide variety of dating sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and many different kinks and fetishes. So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals.
Trans dating in Reno is booming at the moment because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live. The best way to dip your toe in those waters is to use MyTransgenderDate.
The Reno LGBT nightlife has now been covered in full detail. 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. We hope you make the most of the information at hand.
