Seven Gay Bars not to Miss in Chiang Mai
Show your pride and get involved in the gay scene in Chiang Mai, that although small, is alive and kicking.
By far one of the most popular LGBTQ hangouts, this place has been dubbed the friendliest gay bar in Chiang Mai. Every night features a free cabaret show starting at 10pm and the laser light show will drag you in, if you don’t mind the pun.
Back again to the infamous Soi 6, this is our last on the list. A discreet bar filled with tables for two, great drinks and even a few games of connect-four. Great for a night with a special date or just a few mates.
Open 5pm – Midnight
Charonprathet Soi 6, Chang Klan

This club is one of the hottest gay clubs in Chiang Mai, despite its rather erotic nature. Packed with dancers, exotic drag shows and sexy lap dances, this club brings with it some long lasting memories.
Open 9pm – 1am

Loft Bar Hero
Although the all-male, muscular staff may trick you, this bar is actually a mixed bar, attracting women and gay men alike. A live band plays every night and is located in the business park behind Big C.

Tucked behind the gay-friendly Lotus Hotel is this casual and lovely bar and restaurant, great for dates or to meet new people in a cozy setting. They have just given it a facelift and a spruceup so well worth another visit if you have been once before.
Open 7pm – Midnight
2/25 Vingbua Road, T. Chang Pheuak
053 215 376 / 053 215 462
Next door to Ram Bar, this watering hole is popular among those who are into the scene but not into full on drag and lasers. Being more laid back, with a great selection of drinks, this place is often frequented by resident expats.
This bar is great to unwind, play some pool and escape the hustle and bustle of the busy Night Bazaar. You won’t have any problem finding this place thanks to its very big rainbow sign.
Open 5pm – 1am
