The Laird

149 Gipps Street, Abbotsford, Melbourne, Australia, 3067  map 

Australia’s longest-running exclusively gay bar/hotel. The Laird is widely known as a gay institution – to the extent that it has been granted permission by Victoria’s Anti-Discrimination Board to operate a men-only policy.

The Laird caters to a wide range of men but is particularly popular with the leather, bear and alternative crowd. Different theme each week, from a relaxed and informal pool competition to a hardcore event with dress code.

Check Laird’s website for agenda.

    “The Laird is your classic gay bar for the leather and bear / chaser crowd. Best described as a more friendly than raunchy, it is a good place to meet up with local guys.“
