Anyone that is trying to learn more about the best gay and lesbian bars or clubs in Wichita will definitely do so if they read this page. We will also be diving deep into subjects like mixed clubs, trans bars, drag shows and more in this LGBT nightlife guide.
There are even a few pride events that also deserve a mention. And since most of us are addicted to our cell phones it would be pretty weird for us to leave out the best LGBT dating sites.
We don’t all enjoy doing 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.
Some of you may want to read more about gay bars across the Midwest.
Best LGBT Bars & Clubs In Wichita
Let’s kick this off with a list of the best mixed LGBT bars and nightclubs in Wichita:
- XY Bar at 235 N Mosley St
- J’s Lounge at 513 E Central Ave
- Rain Cafe & Lounge at 518 E Douglas Ave
- Club Boomerang at 1400 E 1st St N

Best Gay Bars & Clubs
Those that want to find purely gay bars and clubs in Wichita for men to meet men can have success at the venues off that main list. 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 Wichita
Along those same lines we are not aware of any straight up lesbian bars in Wichita 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 out and find another place to try.
With that said, The Store is probably where you should start your search.
Drag Shows & Trans Bars
While these may not exactly be trans bars in Wichita you can find drag shows that may help you locate ts near you at:
- Drag Shows at Club Boomerang
- XY Bar for their Bitchy Bingo events
While we are always trying to keep our lists current we cover so many cities around the globe that it is very hard for us to keep up with the ever changing landscapes. We know the scene here pretty well, but not as well as the local experts.
If you happen to notice anything that isn’t relevant anymore 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 really is not one main gay area or gayborhood here. You may also be interested in reading our LGBT guide’s for:

Best LGBT Dating Sites
It used to be that gay bars were pretty much the only places to try and find other LGBT people near you for dating or hook ups. When everyone is taking photos all the time that can make for a pretty tricky situation for someone who isn’t fully ‘out’ at yet.
Luckily the past is the past, and now we want to tell you about some of our favorite options. It is pretty safe to guess that most of you have seen Adult Friend Finder links online before, the biggest hook up site on the planet has been doing their thing for going on twenty years.
Men Nation is their main site for finding gay men near you to hook up with and it probably has a lot more active users than you would expect. The ladies will be better off on Lesbian Personals which is obviously just for them.
Bi-sexuals that like all the colors of the rainbow can use Adult Friend Finder to find many different people looking to hook up. It combines all the users on their numerous sites which are not only straight and LGBT but also include swingers and other kinky people.
So if you want m4m hook ups use Men Nation, and for f4f hook ups use Lesbian Personals. There are probably plenty reading this that would like to know more about the world’s top transgender dating site, MyTransgenderDate. Trans dating in Wichita is booming at the moment just as it is all across the country because more ts near you are finally comfortable living the life they want to live.
Alright then, we have told you all about the Wichita LGBT nightlife to the best of our abilities. 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.
