If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Salt Lake City you are in the right place. We will also be discussing topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area near you, and more in this local LGBT nightlife guide.
There are quite a few annual and more frequent Salt Lake City gay pride events that also deserve a mention. It would be quite silly for us to leave out the best LGBT dating sites these days when everyone has a device glued to their hand all day.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Salt Lake City 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 being strictly local gay bars. Don’t worry, men can meet men in your area at plenty of spots around town.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Salt Lake City
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in SLC for women to meet women. The mixed list should present some opportunities for you and if there are no cute girls around to try to pick up head out and find another place to try.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Salt Lake City you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Metro Music Hall
- Drag Shows at Club Try-angles
- Drag Shows at Sun Trapp
While we try our best to keep our lists as up to date as possible we cover so many cities around the world that it is very hard for us to always be perfect. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the people who live it every week.
If you happen to notice anything out of date on this page or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know. Also, if you think any venues should be listed as solely places for men to meet men or women to meet women that would also be great.
There really is not one main local gayborhood or gay area in SLC, but at least you have some options unlike Provo where there really is nothing available. You may also be interested in reading our posts on:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
It used to be that the local gay bars were just about your only choice if you wanted to 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 a quicker and more discreet way to make this happen.
We also know that not all of you reading this are 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. It is pretty safe to guess that most of you have seen Adult Friend Finder links online before, it is the biggest hook up site on the planet and has been for almost twenty years.
Men Nation is their main site for finding gay men near you to hook up with and you might be surprised at how many users it has in major American cities like this one. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals that like all flavors should be using Adult Friend Finder. It combines all the users on their numerous sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and a variety of different kinks and fetishes.
So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. Many of you may also be a bit curious about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Salt Lake City is more popular now than ever before because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
At this point you have learned all about the LGBT nightlife in your area. You know all about mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs in Salt Lake City 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.
