Bordeaux’s gay and LGBTQ bars

Passing through Bordeaux? Interested in discovering new LGBTQ-friendly places for going out? Though Bordeaux doesn’t have a designated neighborhood, the city offers many gay bars and night clubs.

The Coco Loko, the unmissable gay bar 

The Coco Loko offers unparalleled entertainment: tantalizing happy hours, singles nights, trivia, DJ sets, not to mention Thursday night parties set up to facilitate amicable and/or romantic encounters. In addition to the upper pop-themed room, a second room plays more electronic music. The resident party host, Mlle Coco, regularly invites drag stars to perform from around France.
