Gay Bars in Liverpool
|| Liverpool has a
growing gay community with numerous bars and clubs dotted
around the Stanley Street [map] area of the city centre.
The oldest gay bar in town is Paco’s [map] on Stanley Street, which has an all round cool and friendly
atmosphere with a nightclub downstairs and a light and
airy bar upstairs.
Just round the corner you’ll find the traditional
pub style of Lisbon Bar [map],
which is billed as a mixed venue but seems to attract
a large gay and lesbian following.
Situated on Dale Street, G-Bar [map] is the city’s premier gay bar and nightclub. It
attracts a mixed crowd at weekends due its cool house
and trance music, but does have a gays-only night on Wednesdays.
To sample the atmosphere at Liverpool’s only exclusively
gay club then head for Escape [map] on Paradise Street, which plays classic disco and dance
music at weekends.
One of the city’s newest gay bars is The Navy
which opened in November 2003 and is located close to
Paco’s. Its Tuesday talent nights and Sunday cheap
booze nights have proved very popular.
Also situated close to Stanley Street is The Curzon,
which is probably the most male-dominated gay venue in
the city and gets very busy at weekends.
If you’re looking a much bigger gay scene then why
not make the half-hour trip to the Gay Village in Manchester.
It is one of the largest gay communities in Europe with
a great mix of people all up for a good night. There are
regular trains to Manchester Piccadilly Station from Liverpool
Lime Street Station. For
