If you want to know more about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Stockholm we have all the info you need right here. This local LGBT nightlife guide will also be getting into mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town and plenty more!
There are quite a few annual or more frequent pride events that we will also tell you about. And we can’t forget about the best LGBT dating sites in Sweden since that is the preferred way to meet new people for many these days.
We don’t all like to do things the same way and we know gay and lesbian bars in your area are not for everyone. We will just list everything we can think of and then you can proceed in whichever way sounds right for you.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Stockholm for men to meet men you can use that list you just saw. We used to live in a world where things were far less inclusive, but these days there are far fewer local gay bars in Sweden and more LGBT friendly places.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Stockholm
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Stockholm for women to meet women in your area. The mixed list should have plenty of options for you though you may have the most opportunities at Moxy.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Stockholm, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at bars like Mälarpaviljongen or Secret Garden. Please use the comments to let us know if anything you notice on this page is no longer relevant or if any new LGBT hot spots in Sweden have opened up since our last visit.
We also want to say that we know how things are here pretty good but we are not locals so it can be hard for us to keep up. If we should be listing any venues as strictly lesbian or gay bars definitely let us know.
There is not really a main gay area or gayborhood here though many spots can be found around Södermalm, but it is not an LGBT only area by any means. Some of you may also want to read our other nightlife guides for cities like:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
Trying to find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups back in the day basically meant you had to go to a local gay bar. We have no idea what your current status is and frankly it is none of our business but it is fair to assume that some readers of our site may not want to be spotted at a place like that by someone who likes to gossip.
Adult Friend Finder has been the biggest hook up site on the planet for almost two decades. They actually have a big network of sites which some may not know.
Men Nation is their main site to use to find gay men near you to hook up with and you might be surprised at how many guys are using it in big towns like this. Lesbian Personals is where to go to find hot women near you to hook up with.
Those who are bi-sexual and like all varieties should just go with Adult Friend Finder. It combines all of the users on their numerous sites across their network which are not only straight and LGBT but also include numerous types of kinks and fetishes like swingers and more.
So if you want m4m hook ups in Sweden look into Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups check out Lesbian Personals. The last thing we want to mention is the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate.
