Helsinki Gay Bars & Clubs

Helsinki Gay Bars & Clubs

Helsinki has a few gay bars and dance clubs with regular special events that attract a mixed LGBT crowd.

Coronavirus Update: Please note that some venues may be closed in line with local government advice. Please check the venue's own website for the latest opening hours and information before making your journey. Stay safe and follow the local authority's guidance in order to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.

Chosen as the best gay bar in Finland (QX) in 2015, Bear Park Cafe is the meeting place for everyone – young and old, gay or otherwise.

This venue started out in 2002 as a small summer kiosk and has been serving the gay community ever since. The kiosk building itself is almost 70 years  old.

Bear Park organises events all year: theatre, arts, music, movies. The Drag Bear Race® is the most popular competition in the park (since 2010). Every DBR Sunday, the park is packed with participants who come to enjoy ‘bears on heels’!
