Gay Mexico City Guide: The Essential Guide To Gay Travel In Mexico City 2018

Gay Mexico City Guide: The Essential Guide To Gay Travel In Mexico City 2018

Gay Mexico City is quickly gathering a reputation as one of the best queer travel destinations in Latin America. A fusion of hedonistic LGBT nightlight, world-class museums, luxury hotels, fabulous dining, eclectic neighborhoods, and a rich history – there is a lot to love in this energetic mega-city

This is because Mexico City has the power to draw you in and leave you utterly enchanted: whether it’s the complex history, the drama, the creative energy or merely the juxtaposition of high culture with squalor, this city is a magnet for gay travelers.

While we loved exploring the gay side of other Mexican destinations like Cancun, Puebla, Oaxaca, Monterrey, Leon, and Queretaro – only the gay beaches and resorts of Puerto Vallarta or wild gay clubs and neighborhoods of Guadalajara could challenge CDMX for the title of capital of Gay Mexico.

There is the famous Zona Rosa or Pink Zone, Mexico City’s most famous “gay” neighborhood, which may have faded slightly from its glorious and glittery heyday but still draws in the queer crowds as most the gay bars and clubs are located here. However, we preferred the more low-key gay scene in the adjacent Roma and Condesa neighborhoods with their gorgeous men, lively cafes, lush parks, beautiful architecture, and chic art galleries. You are only a skip away from a hot sweat night in a gay club, but can sip lattes and enjoy the finer things in life during the day.

As if the boasts dozens of gay bars, bars and cafes were not enough, Mexico City was also the first city in Mexico to legalize gay marriage in 2010, solidifying its status as the open-minded, gay mecca in Mexico. Then there is the annual Mexico City Pride, the biggest in Latin America with over one million annual participants. Sure, there are some inconveniences with higher crime rates, air pollution, and insane traffic – but Mexico City is busy re-inventing itself, and none of this should not put you off visiting Gay Mexico City

So what are you waiting for, no matter and lets yourself fall head over heels for Gay Mexico City!

Naturally being gay does not define which attraction most of us will want to see in each city and most queer travelers will merely want to check out the top things to see in Mexico City during the day!

Mexico City is a relatively tolerant city, but public displays of affection should be kept to a minimum, especially if you do not have to draw attention. Outright hostility is unlikely, but many Mexicans may be uncomfortable with homosexual displays of affections – although in the more touristy areas and the gay-popular neighborhoods holding hands or kissing is unlikely to even garner a second glace.

Most local guys actually don’t mind being checked out or flirted with even, are as long as their own sense of manhood isn’t disputed, and there’s no risk of standing among family or friends – so you never know when you might get lucky by trying your luck.  This giant metropolis is full of contradictions. Our advice for visitors: Be a gay couple, don’t hide your love but be conscious of those around you when you do.

Doing this, you are unlikely to have issues exploring this beautiful and diverse city, where even the essential list of things do with keep visitors entertained for days or weeks -gay, straight or unicorn. Here are just a few of our favorite (outside of the gay village…we will get to that!)

Gay Nightlife in Mexico City

 

 

We are not even sure where to start as the wild gay nightlife in Mexico City took us by surprise, especially given the more conservative attitudes and lack of rainbow flags in Mexico City.  Sure, in public the LGBT community might not be so ‘out and proud’ in Mexico City but in the relative safety of bars and clubs the gay Mexican’s sure know how to let their freak flag fly.

If you become as overwhelmed as we were, the only thing you really need to know is that most of the gay bars are found in  Mexico City’s gayest neighborhood, Zona Rosa, and Calle Amberes in particularly is known for hosting the highest concentration of gay bars and clubs in the city. …This does not mean the Zona Rosa is the only place to spend the night with your global queer family so don’t be afraid to explore a little further afield.

* gay chat Mexico City ** out of Mexico City gay ** gay sauna in Mexico City ** Mexico City ** gay sauna Mexico City **

Mexico City has something for everyone from utterly over-the-top glitter queer club parties to relaxed pubs and chic cocktail bars, and that is without exploring all the LGBT-friendly options. If none of these gay venues seem for you, remember many gays in Mexico City don’t feel the need to segregate themselves and can somewhat discreetly be found at fashionable establishments all over town…

But with a gay nightlife scene as fabulous as this, you would be foolish to not sample at least a few of the LGBT venues in Mexico City…

Baby Gay Nightclub Mexico City ** gay spa mexico city ** hoteles gay zona rosa ** gay bars mexico city zona rosa ** bares gay en polanco **

 

  • Baby – A fashionable new gay club with excellent service, cheapish drinks, and beautiful bartenders models. Expect plenty of young gays with their fag hags bopping away to the latest alt-pop hits and chart toppers with bright pink drinks, neon lights, and fierce unicorn-realness. Yes, we are absolutely in love as you can imagine!
  • Alba 33 – A cute local bar in the Zona Rosa popular with both men and women for its cheap drinks and fun shows.
  • Viena Bar – Nothing at all like Gay Vienna, this simple gay Mexican cantina is the place for beer, tequila, and an unpretentious crowd – with excellent service.

Baby Gay Nightclub CDMX ** hotel gay mexique ** hoteles gay en mexico df ** lugares gay mexico df ** gay mexico city guide ** gay cruise mexico ** gay places in mexico city ** gay life in mexico

  • Kinky Bar – A animated gay bar with hilarious drag queens, cute bartenders, and fun crowds. The best gay place in Zona Rosa to head to late at night, with more upscale vibes and slightly higher prices, but we think they were wholly justified. Kinky Bar also draws in a crowd of young, hip and beautiful with a good mix of LGBT boys and girls to dance the night away with. There is a few different atmospheres to enjoy here depending on the night and room, with first level karaoke and latino music and a roof terrace with more dancey music. There is also a place to smoke and socialize outside plus some ridiculously hot go-go dancers on the weekend. What more could you possibly want in a gay bar?
  • Boy Bar – Our personal favorite gay bar in the Zona Rosa with three epic floors offering everything we ever dreamed and desired. Hot as hell go-go dancers, shower shows, huge dance floors, dance, electronic and house music plus an outdoor terrace and reasonable price drinks. Boy Bar gets packed and is only for us boys so ladies – sorry but this one is not for you! A choose your own adventure type of bar which will have you returning time and time again.

Boy Bar CDMX ** striper gay mexico ** gay bar polanco ** gay guide mexico ** gay scene mexico city ** bares gay en la condesa **

 

  • Drrama By 42 – One of the most popular gay bars in the Zona Rosa area has recently undergone a huge renovation. The interior is a somehow both stylish and an intimate cave-like atmosphere, with reasonable prices and a mixed crowd of mostly younger gay locals. There is no cover charge, so Drrama By 42 often gets packed out with plenty of entertainment each night ranging from karaoke and drag to comedy or live music.
  • La Botica – One of CDMX’s oldest mezcalerías and the best place to go to try delightful mezcal cocktails – there is over 50 on offer, or beers for those who can’t stand the stuff. A core part of the Mexico City gay community for years with friendly waiters, fun karaoke and a fun crowd on the weekends when the dance floor gets packed. A great place to start the night off and see where things lead.
  • BB Show Bar – A gay show bar with muscular male strippers who are very willing to provide private shows for the right amount of pesos. Small and hot, but like all strip-style bars it depends who is on the stage that night.
  • Guilt – An epic if a somewhat posh gay club in swanky Polanco with electronic house, pop, and retro music. Only open on Saturdays, with pricey prices and cover charge, but there are a super fun vibe, very friendly people and awesome music blasting all night long. The only downside is smoking is allowed.

Guilt Gay Club Polanco ** mexico city gay pride 2016 ** zona rosa mexico city gay ** gym gay mexico df ** gay tours mexico

  • Vaqueros Bar – A simple men-only cowboy bar with fun social events and occasional theme parties. We are always partial to a gay cowboy hoe-down – so this was just like visiting Austin, Denver or Nashville but with a heavy dose of the high-octane Mexican party spirit. A nice place to dance salsa and cumbia while enjoying North Mexico music.
  • Marrakech Salon – One of the oldest gay clubs in Mexico with cheap drinks and some of the best pop soundtracks in Gay Mexico. Marrakech Salon, however, is a victim of its own success and frequently gets just too crowded – so get ready to be felt up and be rubbed up by hot and sweaty bodies later at night.
  • Cabarétito Fusión – A fabulous gay club in the Zona Rosa for those who like to flirt while dancing the night away with their queer family. A mixture of drag, comedy, different dance music and cheap drinks make this a very popular hang out for the young LGBT community in Mexico City. For lesbians, Tuesday night is most popular, but you will be welcome every night of the week (except Sunday-Monday when they are closed).

Cabaretito Fusion CDMX ** gay backpacker mexico city ** club gay df ** gay mexico city baths ** hoteles gay friendly mexico df **

 

  • Go Bar CineClub – A fabulous place to go to drink cheap drinks, high-energy drag shows, cinema, strippers and a fun night with a wholly Mexican flavor.
  • La Suite Club – A vast gay EDM dance club in the Zona Rosa spread across two floors. They open late so it arrives after midnight and there is always a cover, depending on the DJ that night.
  • Tom’s Leather Bar – The only leather fetish bar in Mexico City, and one of the few gay bars outside the gay area. Still, Tom’s has an almost cult following with its kinky interior, dark rooms, adult films playing and sexy go-go dancers/strippers. Doors open 9 pm most nights with different promos on different days before 11 pm. Cover normally includes some beer tickets, but admission is free on Tuesday making it one of the most popular nights along with Friday and Saturday.
  • Pink Party/ VD+ – A pop-up gay club night hosting events around Mexico City famous for their sexy go-go boys, modern drag shows and sensual themes. Check out their Facebook page for upcoming shows.

Gay Sauna in Mexico City 

 

 

Had enough of gay cruising in Mexico City – either in the bars or elsewhere? If you desire a bit more guaranteed action, the gay saunas in Mexico City will not disappoint you (unlikely all those faceless Grinder accounts…)

With a bit of basic Spanish, you should have no issues visiting any of the Mexico City gay saunas, though it is always a bit of a lucky dip in terms of who you might find. There is actually a huge variety of bathhouses, many of which are little more than massage parlors where fun can occur, so we have only recommended our two favorites. One is very traditionally Mexican and one which seeks to emulate the gay sauna experience of Europe or the US.

Finding out which you prefer is half the fun right? If you are nervous or have not been before you could always check out our first-time gay sauna guide for some easy hints and tips.

  • So.Do.Me Bath House – Born out of the concern of a group of friend who wants to have a real gay sauna in Mexico City, So.Do.Me is the best place for pure, unadulterated fun – to find, show, spy; to cross glances, to cross smiles and play. Facilities include a sauna, steam room, maze, dark room, and bar – with weekly events including dance parties listed on their website. Entry includes lockers, lube, towel, and condoms – and you can also rent a private room for 3 hours. Close to the Zona Rosa Gay area of CDMX, there is a full age range drawn here, skewing toward 25-35-year-olds. Mostly Mexican’s but a few curious gringos can frequently be found. Discover others’, discover your senses, discover your desires at So.Do.Me Bathhouse.
  • Banos Finisterre – A more typical Mexican gay sauna experience still close to Zona Rosa with massages, treatments and questionable cleanliness. You will either love it or hate it, but it is mainly frequented by locals. Large, sexy and spontaneous – you can take anyone back to your room, and all tribes can be found here: butch, daddy, twink, muscle, etc. Admission includes showers, dry and steam sauna, towels –with there male massages costing extra. Perfect for the adventurous types.

Gay sauna or not, in any sexual encounter, please take adequate precautions. No matter what your intentions are in Gay Mexico City, you should bring your own condoms and lube to play it safe. Take home a hot guy or a hot memory, not an STD.

Besides, you never know what other fun surprises your trip might have in store for you…
