If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Taipei we have all the info you need right here. This LGBT nightlife guide will also be getting into topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows, the main queer area of town and more!
On top of that the best LGBT dating sites in Taiwan will be mentioned, particularly some sites for those who are more interested in hooking up than getting too deep into a serious relationship any time soon. Plus we will mention all of the best LGBT pride events and meet ups we know about in this city.

Taipei lesbian and gay bars are not the only way to meet new people these days. By the way check out some of our other Asia LGBT nightlife guides if they interest you at all.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
We used to live in a world where most gay bars in Taipei were only full of 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 Taipei
Along the same vein we don’t know of any solely lesbian bars in Taipei for women to meet women. Go party at the spots in the mixed list and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head out and find another place to try. With that said, Taboo may be where you want to start.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
We aren’t really to the point of having full on trans bars in Taipei, but you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at places like:
- Café Dalida
- Hero Bar
- Triangle Club
Look guys, we can’t be true experts on all the cities that we cover. We know the scene pretty well, but not as well as the locals will.
It would be great if you could let us know about any errors we made or if anything is out of date on this page in the comments section at the end. Also, 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 a lot.

And these are the best pride events plus other LGBT events throughout the year like:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
We know that going out to an LGBT bar or club is not for everyone. We don’t all enjoy the party scene, and these days many of us have become more and more introverted which is totally understandable.
Plus not everyone is fully ‘out’ at the moment and may not necessarily want to be spotted and get posted about on social media. Whatever your reasons or motivations are LGBT dating sites are a great way to meet people near you without having to get all dressed up and head to a gay or lesbian bar to do so.
The first sites we will be telling you about are mainly geared towards casual sex, they aren’t exactly dating sites. As the divorce rates going up and up many people are not looking to get too serious any time soon.
Men Nation is a really good gay dating site for hook ups, and if you want to hook up with gay guys in Taipei you should definitely check it out. Lesbian Personals is a really cool lesbian hook up site, and they are both run by AsianMatchMate which has grown like gangbusters all across Asia recently, particularly in Taiwan.
Men looking for other gay men near you to hook up with can use Men Nation to get the job done quickly. 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 AsianMatchMate which covers all the flavors in the rainbow.
Serious relationships aren’t for everyone and these sites are a great way to hook up for those that don’t enjoy partying in the LGBT bars, clubs, and nightlife. We also should tell you about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Taipei is trending upwards as more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Well then, we have told you all about the Taipei LGBT nightlife as best as we can. You know where to go to find mixed, gay, or lesbian bars and clubs plus drag shows to party with trans and all sorts of LGBT dating sites in Taiwan. We hope you are able to make the most of the information at hand.
