Pied Bar Provincetown - Provincetown Lesbian Bars - Provincetown Gay Nightlife - Provincetown Tea Dances - Lesbian Bar Photos - Pied Piper P-Town
Provincetown's longest-running lesbian bar, the Pied Bar (aka Pied Piper Bar) is highly popular because of its expansive deck, affording great views of the water. There's a nightly at 6:30 after-tea-dance party held here, following the tea dance at the Boatslip, and the dancing and socializing are good fun here into the wee hours. Although Pied has an especially strong reputation as a women's bar, the crowd is often quite mixed, and totally integrated for tea dances. Page 29.

Provincetown Portuguese Bakery has been a fixture in town for generations - a great place for fresh pastries as well as hearty breakfast and lunch fare.

Rebuilt following a major fire several years back, the Crown & Anchor has become Provincetown's most dynamic and popular full-scale gay resort, with several popular bars, a huge pool overlooking the bay, an excellent restaurant, and nicely furnished rooms (just keep in mind that it can get loud here - it's not a place to stay on weekends if you're hoping to get to bed early!).

Elegant, posh, and with among the most beautiful rooms in town, the Crowne Pointe Inn redefined the gay resort scene in Provincetown when it opened a few years. The rambling, 40-room property is gay-owned but has a decidedly mixed gay/straight, and quite discerning, clientele. Amenities include a pool (rare in Provincetown), a first-rate restaurant (the Bistro at Crowne Pointe), and an intimate but sumptuous full-service spa and boutique called Shui. Page 4.

The former owners of the Beaconlight Guest House, Stephen Mascilo and Trevor Pinker now run the romantic, understatedly upscale Oxford Guest House, which is set along a quiet lane in Provincetown's West End. Among smaller inns (the Oxford has 7 rooms), the Oxford is one of the loveliest properties on the Outer Cape, and the rates - for such a handsomely decorated, sophisticated property - are quite fair, starting at just under $200 nightly in summer (under $100 in winter).

A lively spot with fantastic views of the bay on one side and the colorful pedestrian parade along Commercial Street, Bubala's by the Bay serves decent, if somewhat inconsistent American fare, three meals a day. But the real reason to hang out here is the fun setting. Page 10.

Provincetown Monument - Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum - Provincetown Sightseeing - Best Views of Provincetown - Provincetown Pilgrim Tower
Visible from virtually any point in town (and for that matter from a good way down U.S. back around the Cape), the impressively regal Pilgrim Monument rises 252 feet above town. This stunning granite obelisk was completed in 1910 to commemorate the landing of the Mayflower at Provincetown in fall of 1620. Climbing all 116 steps and 60 ramps to the crowning observation area is a somewhat arduous task (it only takes about 10 minutes for most people, but it's a bit of a slog if it's hot...)

Indianapolis Gay Bathhouses - Indianapolis Gay Club - Club Indianapolis Sex Club - Indianapolis Gay Sauna - Club Indianapolis Capitol Avenue
Part of the extensive chain of gay bathhouses throughout the United States, Club Indianapolis lies just on the northern edge of downtown, not terribly far from some of the city's more popular gay bars. Like other

Greg's Indianapolis - Greg's Gay Bar Indianapolis - Indy Gay Nightlife gallery - Greg's Club 231 East 16th Street - Indianapolis gay clubs photos
A professional, friendly staff has helped make Greg's one of the premier gay nightspots in Indianapolis. Like many of the city's gay bars, it's located on the North Side in a somewhat industrial, slightly downcast neighborhood, but Greg's on the inside is clean and cheery, with a great sound system and a big dance floor, along with a mellower patio area out back. The crowd is mostly but not exclusively male, and all ages and types. Page 10.

Hydrate Chicago - Hydrate on Halsted gay bar - Manhole Chicago - gay Chicago dance clubs - gay discos in Boystown - Hydrate Lakeview gay nightclub
Occupying the site of the long-running (and infamously raucous) Manhole club, the somewhat more eclectic but still quite cruisy Hydrate dance club (3458 N. Halsted St., 773-975-9244) has earned a loyal following for its imaginative theme nights (such as the Hydrag Revue on Wednesday nights, and occasional lube-wrestling competitions). Mostly, though, it's just a pounding and pulsing place to dance to some of the best music in the neighborhood and check out hot and shirtless patrons. Page 58.

Man's Country Chicago - Man's Country bathhouse Andersonville - Chicago gay bathhouses - gay cruising in Chicago - Chicago sex clubs - Man's Country
Gay nightlife in Andersonville tends toward the leather and Levi's set, and a somewhat older, more bearish, and less attitude-y crowd than is typical in Lakeview bars, and this same general characterization applies to the neighborhood's gay bathhouse, Man's Country (5015 N. Clark St., 773-878-2069), which opened in the early 1970s and differs from some in this genre because of its famed gay strip shows on Friday and Saturday nights (often featuring guests from the gay porn industry). Page 61.

Missie B's Kansas City - Bootleggers Club Kansas City - Gay Nightlife Kansas City - Missie B's gay bar - Kansas City gay bars - Female Impersonation
Kansas City's most popular gay and lesbian nightspot, Missie B's is on the edge of the trendy Westport neighborhood and close to West 39th Street's strip of excellent restaurants. The two-floor club has several notable features: a leather and sex boutique on the upper floor, which also has a small dance floor and a lounge called Bootleggers that's home to the leather-oriented Bootleggers Club of Kansas City; a back patio; and a stage on the ground floor that presents entertaining drag shows. Page 11.

Rachael's Cafe Bloomington Indiana - Gay Bloomington coffeehouses - gay-friendly Bloomington restaurants - gay nightlife Indiana University photos
Although neither a bar nor nightclub (check out Uncle Elizabeth's for that), cheerful Rachael's Cafe has become one of downtown Bloomington's favorite evening hangouts among local GLBT folks (including students from the highly progressive and gay-friendly Indiana University). The airy restaurant and coffeehouse a few blocks from campus is open til 9 pm nightly (except for Sundays, when it closes at 7 pm), and there are open-mike events on Fridays. Page 20.

One of the great legends of gay Chicago nightlife, Roscoe's Tavern & Cafe (3356 N. Halsted St., 773-281-3355) has remained fun, relevant, and busy despite the presence of many newcomers along Halsted Street over the years. It's across the street from Cocktail and near plenty of other restaurants, bars, and shops in Boystown. One feature that makes Roscoe's a favorite for groups of friends is its nightly

Baton Show Lounge Chicago - Chicago Drag Bars - Female Impersonation Shows Chicago - Chicago Baton Show Lounge - Chicago Gay Cabaret - Baton Show Bar
One of the longest-running gay clubs in the Midwest, the quite fabulous Baton Show Lounge is also one of the country's most illustrious female impersonation cabarets. It's also one of only a few Chicago gay establishments downtown (in the Near North neighborhood, at 436 N. Clark St., 312-644-5269). The dishy, diva-packed drag shows are held Wednesday through Sunday, three times nightly, beginning at 8:30 pm - it's a good idea, especially on weekends, to make a reservation. Page 39.

Berlin Gay Nightclub - Berlin Chicago - Berlin Gay Club -
A friendly dance club along Boystown's busy Belmont Avenue, Berlin has been a gay nightlife mainstay in Chicago for many years, its success due largely to its come-one-come-all vibe - on any given night you might see hot muscle twinks, baby dykes snogging on the dance floor, female impersonators, curious heteros, salt-and-pepper-haired yuppies, alt-goths - you name it. It's a fun place early or late, and you can always count on interesting, dance-worthy music. Page 22.

Although not actually in either Lakeview or Andersonville, the endearingly fabulous gay bar Big Chicks is relatively close to both district, in Chicago's ethnically diverse Uptown neighborhood. What stands out about this laid-back but highly popular gay bar with a vaguely sports-bar vibe is that it welcomes a genuine mix of lesbians, gay guys, heteros, and everybody else, and the crowd is age-varied and generally low on attitude but high on style.

It's just a short drive from downtown Madison, that ever-progressive and infectiously joyous college town and capital city of Wisconsin, to reach one of the Midwest's largest and most popular gay nightlife venues, Club 5, which comprises several venues: there's the main dance club, which enjoyed a fresh renovation not long ago, plus attractive G.Bar (with primarily a lesbian clientele), the cruisy Barracks (think more bears and leather), and a patio.

Cocktail Gay Bar - Cocktail on Halsted - Cocktail Chicago Gay Bar - Halsted gay lounges - gay bars in Lakeview - Boystown happy hour bars
An intimate, swank little lounge along the Halsted Street bar strip, Cocktail draws a well-dressed, mostly (but by no means exclusively) male bunch of guys with a generally professional, preppy demeanor. It's a good spot to meet up with friends at happy hour before dinner, or to wind down an evening. The staff is particularly friendly and nice, and the mood festive. Page 48.

Daddy's is home to the city's Kansas City Cave Bear group, and also has an online fetish and leather gear shop. Daddies, leather guys, bears, cubs, and the like frequent this dark and invitingly butch bar that has beer busts on Fridays and Sundays, hanky nights on certain Saturdays. Page 64.

A massive and rather legendary GLBT club in the downtown Minneapolis theater and nightclub district, the Gay 90's club has become known over the years for its three floors of queer entertainment, from drag shows to go-go strippers to DJ dancing. The club packs them in on weekends, and draws a genuine mix of patrons - gays, straights, women, men, young, old, and all races. The Adonis Men strip review is a big hit not only with men who like men but also giggling bachlorette parties. Page 40.

Halsted's Bar & Grill Chicago - Halsted's on Halsted - Halsted's gay bar - Chicago brunch restaurants - gay brunch Chicago - gay sports bars Halsted
Named for the uber-gay Chicago street that it's located on, Halsted's Bar & Grill serves several purposes: it's one of the most popular gay-brunch venues in town, serving favorites like chilaquile scrambles and 12 different types of bloody Mary every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am until 3 pm. It's also a casual and affordable dinner spot, and then later each evening it becomes one of Boystown's more enjoyable hangouts for cocktails and cruising. Page 51.

The popular gay burger franchise, Hamburger Mary's (5400 N. Clark St., 773-784-6969) is one of the more attractive ones in the chain, and it's also an easy-going, inclusive, and diverse hangout in the heart of Andersonville - a good spot for cocktails and to relax with friends on the patio, and a decent if not always consistently good place for a meal. As the name suggests, burgers (with campy names) are the featured fare, but you can also get plenty of other pub-food items. Page 41.

Jackhammer Chicago - Jackhammer gay bar - Jackhammer Andersonville - Chicago leather bars - gay leather bar pictures - Chicago gay bear bars
Rough, cruisy, and no-nonsense, the Jackhammer lies at the northern reaches of Andersonville and hasn't succumbed to the trend in Lakeview of old-school leather-and-bear bars to gradually shift with the times and cater to a slicker, preppier bunch. Yes, this is your father's gay leather bar, presenting a particularly beefy cadre of male dancers on Saturday and Sunday night, brought to you by Page 31.

Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club - Kit Kat Chicago - Kit Kat Restaurant Halsted Street - Gay Chicago lounges - gay supper clubs - Kit Kat gay drag bars
One of Lakeview's swankier mixed gay-straight lounges and eateries, Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club is a swish, retro-hip hangout that's ideal for sipping fancy cocktails or for a full meal. The kitchen turns out commendably prepared international fare (Thai spring rolls with lobster and rock shrimp, wasabi shu-mai pork dumplings, pumpkin-seed-encrusted halibut with a spicy cilantro-cream sauce), and many of the glamorous staffers dress in drag. Page 45.

Not only is La Cage the largest gay club in Milwaukee, it's actually the largest in the state of Wisconsin, or at least that's the claim (Club 5 in Madison is also pretty sizable). The longest-running gay club in the city, La Cage is smack in the center of the bustling gay nightlife district in historic Walker's Point, just south of downtown - several other gay bars are within easy walking distance.

Sophisticated, trendy, but easygoing, Minibar is Halsted Street's hippest little nightspot.

For years the Gentry on Halsted (pictured here in September 2007, shortly before it closed), a Lakeview sister to the dapper Gentry gay bar downtown, entertained the suits crowd with cabaret and a relaxed, low-keyed atmosphere. In 2007, Gentry closed, but most gay-bar-hoppers have been thrilled with its transformation into Scarlet, a cosmopolitan, upscale gay lounge known for its dandy drink specials and sleek decor.

Part of a franchise of well-regarded, well-kept bathhouses with branches in Berkeley, Seattle, and Toronto, Steamworks Chicago has a handy location along Halsted Street, steps from more than a dozen gay bars in the neighborhood.

Ballgame Milwaukee - Ballgame Gay Bar - Ballgame Sports Bar Milwaukee - Walker's Point Gay Nightlife - Gay Sports Pubs - Gay Saloons
In a city known for its loyal sports fans, the Ballgame is popular on two fronts - as a reliably fun and easygoing gay neighborhood tavern, and a great little sports bar with darts, pool tables, games on monitors, and a nice jukebox. It's in Walker's Point, along with most of Milwaukee's gay bars. Page 3.

Menjo's Detroit - Menjo's Gay Bars - Detroit Gay Dance Clubs - Menjo's Highland Park - Menjo's Nightclub - Menjo's Gay Disco
The fact that a young and still undiscovered Madonna used to dance and party at Menjo's gives some idea of just how long this gay nightclub has been a fixture for Detroit's GLBT community. In Highland Park, not far west of the Woodward Avenue corridor and such gay-popular communities as Ferndale and Royal Oak, Menjo's doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior has been stylish redone in recent years, with a fantastic sound system, hot dance floor, game room with pool tables. Page 33.

Soho Gay Bar Ferndale - Soho Social Club Detroit - Detroit Gay Bars - Ferndale Gay Clubs - Detroit Best Gay Happy Hours - Soho Ferndale Gay Karaoke
Along the main drag of increasingly trendy Ferndale, the bustling town that - with nearby Royal Oak - is at the heart of metro Detroit's significant gay scene, Soho is a smart and sophisticated bar with a very popular happy hour and a fun crowd well into the evening. On weekends, many patrons go back and forth between Soho and Ferndale's other popular gay hangout, Club 9. Soho has karaoke Wednesdays, and a number of other theme nights and drink specials. It's popular with men and women. Page 37.

Pronto Royal Oak - Pronto Gay Bar Detroit - Royal Oak Michigan Gay Scene - Gay-Friendly Restaurant Detroit - Pronto Gourmet Market - Pronto Restaurant
Pronto has been a lively fixture in the gay-popular Detroit suburb of Royal Oak since the early '90s - it's equal parts video bar, eclectic restaurant, and gourmet market (specializing in retro-fun treats like vintage candy, house-made baked goods, and Michigan-made jams, jellies, and other products). At night, the video bar draws a mostly gay but somewhat mixed crowd - it's an attractive, warmly lighted space, and the best GLBT gathering spot in this bustling community. Page 7.

Buddies Kansas City - Buddies Gay Bar Main Street - Kansas City Gay Neighborhood Bars - Buddies Gay Club - Kansas City Gay Nightlife
A friendly, low-keyed neighborhood bar that's right next to the popular gay country-western club Sidekicks, Buddies used to be painted that same bright-red as its neighbor and has more recently been given a more sedate gray makeover. It's still a popular spot, either before or after venturing to Sidekicks (both places are open until 3 am), and it's a fun place to drink beer, mingle with locals, and relax. Expect no attitude at Buddies. Page 18.

Danny's on Broadway - Danny's Kansas City - Danny's Gay Bar Kansas City - Kansas City Gay Dance Clubs - Danny's KC
Located just south of Westport along Broadway, right next to the popular gay sports bar Out A Bounds, Danny's on Broadway is a fun and friendly gay dance club that draws a fairly eclectic bunch. There's live music on Saturday nights, and enticing drink specials throughout the week. Page 38.

Outabounds Kansas City - Out A Bounds Gay Bar - Outabounds Sports Bar - Gay Sports Bars Kansas City - Outabounds Broadway -
Kansas City's gay sports bar, Out A Bounds Bar & Grill, is a fixture along Broadway - a bit south of the bustling Westport neighborhood. It's next to another friendly gay bar, Danny's on Broadway, and a good spot for stiff cocktails and well-priced beer. It's especially popular, as you might guess, when there's a game on, and also a good option before hitting some of the larger gay venues in town, like Missie B's. Page 56.

Side Street Bar Kansas City - Kansas City Gay Bars Union Hill - Kansas City Bear Bars - KC Gay Leather Bars - Sidestreet Bar and Grill Kansas City
As its name suggests, this cozy neighborhood bar is on a quiet side street - the Side Street Bar is in up-and-coming Union Hill, making it a favorite hangout with the many gay men who live in this part of town. It's laid-back and tends toward the bearish/leather set, but by no means exclusively so. Doesn't draw a ton of tourists, but it's a good stop if you're doing a gay KC pub crawl (it's just a short drive east from the bundle of gay bars in Midtown). Page 23.

Sidekicks Saloon - Sidekicks Kansas City - Kansas City Gay Country Western Bars - Country Western Dance Bars Kansas City - Sidekicks Saloon Gay Club
The bright-red brick-and-wood building in Midtown that has long housed Sidekicks Saloon is a fixture among fans of gays and lesbians who love country-western dancing and music - it's your top GLBT spot in the city for line-dancing and two-stepping. And with a great staff, friendly crowd, and good-size dance floor, this is a pretty fun hangout whether you're a big fan of the genre or not. Drag shows, Latin nights, and good drink specials are part of the fun, and Buddies - another fun gay bar. Page 34.

At Random Milwaukee - At Random Tavern - Bay View Milwaukee Gay Bars - Gay-Friendly Lounges Milwaukee - Milwaukee Dive Bars - At Random Bayview
Although the south Milwaukee neighborhood of Bay View has one of the city's stronger representations of GLBT residents, it doesn't actually have any gay bars - most of those are located just a short drive north in Walker's Point. However, Bay View does have its share of quirky, offbeat, and very gay-friendly cafes, restaurants, and lounges, with a particular retro-inviting highlight being At Random. This slightly off-the-beaten-path lounge specializes in foofy, old-school, tropical cocktails. Page 62.

Boom Milwaukee - Boom Gay Bar - Club Boom Milwaukee - Gay Cruise Bars Milwaukee- Sunday Happy Hours Milwaukee - Milwaukee Cheap Drinks - Boom 2nd St
Boom is a fairly run-of-the-mill gay hangout in the middle of Walker's Point's GLBT nightlife district - it's particularly notable on Sundays, when drinks are two-for-one all night. The crowd is a mix of guys of all ages - it's pretty varied, and a pleasant patio and pool table are among the amenities. Page 50.

Fluid Milwaukee - Fluid Gay Bar Milwaukee - Fluid Martini Bar Walker's Point - Gay Martini Bars - Milwaukee Best Gay Happy Hours - Fluid Lounge
On the same Walker's Point block as such popular hangouts at La Cage and Walker's Pint, convivial Fluid Lounge is an excellent choice among the neighborhood's many gay bars for happy hour - it's particular well-known for its extensive list of martinis, such as the

Metro Lounge Milwaukee - Metro Hotel Bar Milwaukee - Gay-Friendly Hotels Milwaukee - Metro Bar Downtown Milwaukee - Zen on Seven Bar - Metro Lounge
In the lobby of the gay-friendly Metro Hotel, an upscale boutique hotel a couple of blocks from downtown's Cathedral Square, the Metro Lounge is a great spot for happy hour (or a bottle of wine on Thursdays, when they're half-price all night long). Because the hotel has a bit of a GLBT following, you'll often spot

This Is It Milwaukee - This Is It Gay Bar - Downtown Milwaukee Gay Nightlife - Happy Hour Lounges Milwaukee - Best Gay Bars Milwaukee - This Is It
You have to search a bit to find the only gay bar in Milwaukee's downtown area - the aptly named This Is It is centrally located but through a discreet door along the middle of East Wells Street, just west of Cathedral Square. And what a great little find it is - you can walk here from downtown hotels and restaurants, and inside you'll find a classic retro-fabulous speakeasy with Tiffany-style lamps, a long bar and a bench of comfy seating with small cocktail tables. Page 47.

Triangle Bar Milwaukee - Triangle Gay Bar Milwaukee - Milwaukee Triangle Video Bar - Gay Video Bars Walker Point - Mixed Gay Lesbian Bars Milwaukee
Known for one of the larger patios among Milwaukee's gay bars, the Triangle is a low-keyed video bar and neighborhood hangout popular with men and women, although drawing more of the former. Like so many of the gay taverns in Walker's Point, the crowds vary a lot from night to night, but it's a good stop in any bar crawl through the neighborhood. Page 53.

Walker's Pint Milwaukee - Walker's Pint Lesbian Bar - Milwaukee Lesbian Nightlife - Walker's Pint Gay Club - Milwaukee Gay Neighborhood Bars - Walkers
Charmingly quirky Walker's Pint, whose name is a play on the Walker's Point neighborhood in which it's located, is a welcoming tavern with a mixed lesbian-gay following. Overall this is a bit more of a women's hangout than other bars in the neighborhood (its official motto is

Harbor Room Milwaukee - Harbor Room Gay Bar Walker's Point - Harbor Room Leather Bar - Milwaukee Gay Leather Bars - Milwaukee Bear Bars - Harbor Room
A bit southeast of the main GLBT nightlife scene in Walker's Point, the Harbor Room is Milwaukee's top leather gay bar, also drawing a mix of bears, men in uniforms, and other cruisy guys. Theme nights (jock straps and nipple ring on Tuesdays, leather and boots on Wednesdays) and one of the better scotch, wine, and beer selections of any gay bar in town account in part for Harbor Room's popularity. Page 21.

Nomad World Pub - Nomad Pub Milwaukee - Nomad World Pub East Brady Street - Milwaukee Brady Street Gay Bars - Gay-Friendly Pubs Milwaukee - Nomad
Although you won't find many specifically gay hangouts north of downtown Milwaukee, the funky and atmospheric Brady Street neighborhood has a number of shops, restaurants, and bars with a significant gay following, with the decidedly quirky Nomad World Pub leading the way. The globally themed bar has live music many nights and one of the city's best selections of beer - on tap you can sample Founders Dirty Bastard, Magic Hat #9, Saison Dupont, Smithwicks, Tripple Karmeliet, and many others. Page 60.

Rumours Innuendo St. Paul - Innuendo Gay Bar - Rumours Nightclub St. Paul - Rumors Gay Bar - St. Paul Gay Nightlife - Twin Cities Gay Dance Clubs
An extremely popular, nicely outfitted gay bar and dance club in capital city St. Paul's continuously emerging warehouse district, Lowertown, Rumours & Innuendo comprises two distinct space. For chatting, drinking, enjoying happy hour after work, and meeting the locals, there's a chill pub (Innuendo), which is open nightly until 3 am. On weekends, the adjacent Rumours Dance Club thumps and bumps into the late-night hours, attracting a great mix of GLBT revelers from throughout the Twin Cities. Page 8.

19 Bar Minneapolis - 19 Gay Bar Minneapolis - Minneapolis Gay Neighborhood Bars - Loring Park Gay Nightlife - Minneapolis Pool Bars - 19 Bar Twin City
A fairly skeevy cruise bar back in the day, the happily unpretentious 19 Bar is today a terrific neighborhood hangout - perfect for a game of pool or darts, getting to know locals (it's in the charming Loring Park neighborhood), taking a break from business (it's a block from the convention center and a short taxi ride south of downtown), or relaxing with a drink on the covered patio. Another fine attribute: the eclectic jukebox. The welcoming staff and no-attitude vibe makes 19 Bar popular. Page 52.

Camp Bar St. Paul - Camp Gay Bar - Camp Piano Bar - St. Paul Gay Cabaret Bars - Twin Cities Best Piano Bars - St. Paul Gay Discos - Camp Robert Street
The high-ceilinged, attractively furnished Camp gay bar is on the northern edge of downtown St. Paul, just a short walk from the Minnesota Capitol Building, and close to many hotels and restaurants. Of the city's few gay bars, this one draws the most diverse crowd, from older

Town House Bar St. Paul - Town House Lesbian Club - Town House Piano Lounge St. Paul - Twin Cities Lesbian Bars - Townhouse Gay Bar St. Paul
Across from a strip of shopping centers in western St. Paul, the Town House Bar is St. Paul's eldest GLBT nightspot and the most popular women's club in the Twin Cities. It's about a 10-minute drive west of downtown St. Paul, but that also puts it closer to Minneapolis, which is just 15 minutes away. Although the crowd is mostly lesbian most of the time, men often frequent this friendly neighborhood bar, especially on Monday evenings (when it's guys' night). Country line dancing, karaoke. Page 26.

Brass Rail Minneapolis - Brass Rail Gay Bar - Brass Rail Reopened 2010 - Minneapolis Male Dancers - Twin Cities Gay Cruise Bars - Brass Rail Lounge
One of the longest running gay clubs in the Midwest, the Brass Rail reopened in early 2010 following a closure throughout much of the previous year. A remodeling has an additional stage featuring drag shows and go-go boys, and the club has a better, cleaner look (it needed the makeover). Along with the Gay 90s next door and the Saloon a few blocks down, the Brass Rail has for many years been a key component of the downtown Hennepin Avenue gay nightlife strip. Page 32.

Minneapolis Eagle - Bolt Video Bar - Bolt Minneapolis Gay Nightclub - Eagle Gay Bar Minneapolis - Twin Cities Leather Bars - Bolt Underground Club
A trio of adjacent, jointly owned gay bars downtown near the Mill City district on the Mississippi River, the Minneapolis Eagle, Bolt Video Bar, and Bolt Underground dance club cater to a mostly male, fairly cruisy bunch - the Eagle, as gay bars with this name tend to, attracts more of a leather, bear, and uniform crowd, generally in their 30s and up (a dress code is enforced on weekends). The Bolt Video Bar's clientele tends toward younger and more eclectic, from jeans and T-shirts to prep. Page 2.

Saloon Minneapolis - The Saloon Gay Bar - Minneapolis Gay Hotels - Twin Cities Drag Shows - Gay Cruising Minneapolis - Saloon Nightclub Hennepin Ave
Part of downtown's cruisy and campy gay entertainment strip on the edge of the Hennepin Avenue theater district, The Saloon has been an extremely popular fixture here for more than three decades. It's a large space comprising a dance club, lounge, and a casual restaurant serving short-order pub fare and sandwiches. The upper two floors of the bar are home to the Saloon Hotel, a budget property that's nonetheless acceptable if you just need a roof over your head and don't want to spend much. Page 36.

Casa Nueva Cantina - Casa Nueva Athens Ohio - Gay Athens Ohio Nightlife - Ohio University Gay Scene - Lesbian Bars Ohio - Gay-Friendly Athens Dining
With a central location in Athens, Ohio's charming and walkable downtown, Casa Nueva is the closest you'll find to a gay and lesbian bar in this rather rural part of the state close to the border of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Athens is famous as the home of Ohio University, and it's a classic-looking college town with the lively energy you'd expect of such a place. Casa Nueva draws a mix of lesbians and gays, progressive heteros, and creative spirits. It's a bar as well as a restaurant. Page 14.
