Athens Gay Bars & Cafés

Athens Gay Bars & Cafés

Most gay bars and cafés in Athens are located in Gazi, near Kerameikos Station. Gazi is also home to Technopolis cultural centre, with many boutique shops, chic restaurants and art galleries.

Ancient Greece is often viewed as an outlying bastion of gay inclusivity in the pre-modern world, and if modern Athens is anything to go by, this may just have been the case. Arguably Greece’s most liberal city, Athens is home to a bounty of gay bars and clubs just waiting to be discovered. The city’s gay venues cater to a diverse range of interests and tastes, and you’ll find glittering drag palaces alongside some slightly less polished, but still exhilarating, bear bars and cruise clubs.
