Edinburgh Gay Bars

Whilst not on the same scale as London or Manchester, Edinburgh does have a vibrant and colourful gay scene.

Edinburgh’s most popular gay bars are located near the city centre at the north end of Leith Street and Broughton Street, in an area known locally as the “Pink Triangle”.
