If you are trying to locate the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Venice you are in the right place. We will also be diving into topics like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more in this LGBT nightlife guide.

Not all of you will be interested in going out to a lesbian or gay bar or nightclub to try and meet people near you so we will try to cover all the bases so that you can pick out which option you prefer. You can look through all of our posts on the gay scene in Italy at this link.

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
If you are looking for gay bars and clubs in Venice 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. Don’t worry, men can meet men at plenty of spots around town.
Best Lesbian Bars & Clubs in Venice
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Venice for women to meet women. The above list should hopefully give you plenty of opportunities and if there are no cute girls around to hit on head out and find another place to try.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Venice you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at Trash & Chic which has drag shows plus you should check out Jade’s Retro Drag on the first Friday night of each month.
We really do try our best to keep our posts as current 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If there is anything out of date on this page or if we left some place off that is a can’t miss please use the comments to let us know.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 fill us in, thanks if you can help.
There is not really a queer area or gayborhood here. You may also be interested in reading our posts on LGBT nightlife for:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
Trying to find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups was a lot more difficult back in the day. Gay or lesbian bars were pretty much your only choice, but fortunately that isn’t how it is anymore.
It is also fair to guess that some reading this may not be too keen on having their photos taken at a gay bar and posted about on social media. We bet 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 best site for finding gay men near you to hook up with and it can work great in large European cities. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals that don’t have a preferred gender to hook up with can go with Adult Friend Finder. It combines all the users on their plethora of sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and other kinky people.
Trans dating in Venice is better than ever at the moment because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live. Alright then, we have told you all about the Venice LGBT nightlife as best as we know how.
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.
