Gay Puerto Vallarta

Gay Flag.

Gay Puerto Vallarta ! We have a long history of being a gay friendly location.
Puerto Vallarta has more Gay Nightlife, Clubs, Bars and Restaurants than ever, but was always gay friendly, even from 35 years ago.

We even had our first Gay Pride parade in 2013

Most gay nightlife will be found in the Zona Romantica (South Side or Old Town), concentrated around Los Muertos Beach, Olas Altas, inland to Insurgentes and north to L. Cardenas.

Olas Altas Area

Many of the Bars and Lounges in this area are a mixed, gay and straight. Many restaurants are gay owned and all are gay friendly.

Los Muertos Beach.
On the beach there’s the Blue Chairs, Ritmos Beach Club (Green Chairs) and Mantamar Beach Club.
The Olas Altas area is 1 block off the main gay oriented beach, Los Muertos. After the beach, there are plenty of gay friendly bars and lounges within a 5 minute walk.

Around the corner on Calle Pulpito is Garbo, an upscale, piano bar with live entertainment almost every night.  The entertainment is low key ranging from lounge style singers, piano players and guitarists.  The ambience is elegant but not stuffy.  The have a full bar as well and are frequented by locals who are friendly and welcoming to tourists.

Further down the street, on the corner, is La Noche, another upscale indoor martini bar, air conditioned and with a nice rooftop. Video monitors playing a wide variety of music videos and photos of their clientele.  The ambience allows for conversation and the seating arrangement allows for groups of almost any size to rearrange the furniture to fit their needs.  It is frequented by locals and is a favourite for gay tourists before heading out to one of the dance clubs later in the evening. The drinks are large and very reasonably priced and the staff and service are terrific.

Also in the area, you will find Mr FlamingosAnonimo,  Diva’sLos AmigosBlondies, Reinas, La Chachalaca and  La Cantina Margarita each offering a different style of cantina bar with varying age groups  All are popular with locals and tourists alike.

Vallarta’s 2 large dance clubs include CC Slaughters and Paco’s Ranch. They are both located in the general area of Lázaro Cárdenas and are 2 minute, easy and safe walks from the bars listed above. Wet Dreams is a male stripper bar, men only. There is also a new after hours nightclub called Industry and it’s open from Thursday to Sunday from 12am-10am.

Paco’s Ranch is Puerto Vallarta’s original dance bar.  In April 2010 they left their original three story building for a larger, one story building one block down the street closer to downtown.
