GO Gay Bars in Birmingham

Gay bars in Birmingham From traditional to fetish to glam, whatever you’re into you’re bound to find something appealing in one of Birmingham’s best gay bars.

The area around Hurst Street and Wrentham Street is affectionately known as “the gay village” and whilst it might not be as big or as busy as the scene in Manchester or London it’s certainly on the cusp of greatness.

Boots Bar [map], Wrentham Street, is Birmingham’s premier fetish bar for gay men. There’s plenty of chances to pull here and the dress code requires something a little different – whether it be a skin head, leather bondage gear or a uniform.

If that’s not your scene try Equator [map], Hurst Street, which is an award-winning lively and friendly venue. There’s plenty of cheap alcohol promotions if you’re a bit strapped for cash and you’ll also find a selection of delicious hot and cold food served throughout the day.
If Equator’s not showbiz enough for you make your next port of call the Glamorous Show Bar [map], Albany House, Hurst Street.

This is one of the gay village's newest additions and offers punters a cabaret show bar hosted by the fabulous Glamour. Glamorous regularly features drag acts and artistes including Bella Berserk and is sure to kick off your weekend in a real party mood.

The Fox [map], Lower Essex Street, is a lesbian bar and is a major player in the Birmingham Gay Pride Weekend that takes place every August.
Gay, lesbian and straight people flock to The White Swan [map], Sherlock Street (bottom of Hurst Street) for the vibrant atmosphere and loved-up feeling. There’s a beer garden too for al fresco drinking.

Route 2 [map], Hurst Street, is Birmingham’s biggest gay bar and something of a legend amongst locals and visitors. This is where you’ll see some of pop’s most colourful performers as well as have the opportunity to dance and party until 4am. Look out for drinks offers from unbelievably attractive staff.

From one legend to another; The Jester [map], Holloway Circus, is Birmingham’s longest established gay bar and is a bustling hive of activity. Dance, drink, eat, or simply soak up the atmosphere of this legendary bar.

If you’re feeling peckish after all that drinking or need a refuel following several hours of hard dancing check out The Green Room [map], Hurst Street, which is a gay-friendly restaurant slap bang in the centre of the village.

Order from a large and tempting menu and relax surrounded by friendly staff and an inviting décor. It’s open until 2am on Friday and Saturday and therefore gives you plenty of time to check out the village before settling down to a hearty meal.
