Gay Nightlife in Boston

Grab a drink and grab a local.

The Boston Eagle

Cheap drinks and dirty thoughts fill this ultra cruisy bar. It’s more of spectacle for some, but don’t get drunk here if you’re looking to go home alone. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Roxy (Epic Saturdays)

Dance, dance, strip, drink, this is the place to be seen if you’re young, fit, and showing off. “Epic Saturdays” is the night for gay boys and girls to play. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Ramrod

Though some nights are more casual, this is THE leather bar. They strictly enforce the dress code on Friday and Saturday, but you know you like discipline. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Paradise

If this is paradise, stay where you are. But if you like go-go dancers and an older crowd, drunk up and dance up and avoid the grabby hands. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Machine

Dancing and cruising are the main draws, with its best night (by far) being Friday. It’s a mixed crowd, but after several drinks in hopefully you won’t care. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Jacques Caberet

Famous for its seven-days-a-week drag and its cheap drinks, Jacques is not to be missed. It’s a dive, but, like the ladies, looks can be deceiving. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Cathedral Station

Cheap, strong drinks in a friendly sports bar for the gays.  Fun at night, and brunch (and the Bloody Maries) give you a reason to come back in the morning. Lots of former Fritz workers are here. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

D Bar

Typical gay bar for the typical gay. But, on Fridays it’s 80s and 90s night with a free cover. What more do you need? TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Club Café

Not the most creatively named place, but still popular with the younger crowd. Pop music, videos, plus a full menu and Sunday brunch gives you plenty of options. TweetPinShare+10 Shares

Alley Bar

Grrr, there be bears here. Bears that play pool. This fun, unassuming bar is popular with locals and those who want to hibernate from the scene for a night. TweetPinShare+10 Shares
