Paris Gay Bars

The main gay bars in Paris are located in Le Marais gay district, although gay and gay-popular venues are found everywhere in this big city.

Most bars have a regular ‘happy hour’, but this may be for beer only.

Le Marais

One of Paris’ most historic areas, with restaurants, boutiques & art galleries. Le Marais is also the hub of its gay nightlife, with many gay venues near Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie and rue des Archives.

TOMORROW Live Night

One of Paris’ most popular gay bars. Le RAIDD is famous for its Shower Show on Thursdays when several hot, hunky male dancers get wet & wild in a huge aquarium-like tank embedded in the wall.

And if that’s not enough eye candy, then feast your eyes on the gorgeous bar staff. Drinks are reasonably priced, and there’s cosy lounge area in the basement.
