Gay Bars in Greater Palm Springs

If you’re planning an LGBTQ-friendly getaway to Greater Palm Springs, then raising a glass at one of the destination’s many gay bars is a must. Drinks flow. Dancing unfolds. And drag performers shine. Plus, you’ll find plenty of LGBTQ places offering happy hour prices all day—and night—long. 

All are welcome on Arenas Road, the unofficial gay district of downtown Palm Springs, where locally-owned eateries, clubs, and bars celebrate pride daily. Hit up happy hour at Chill Bar, known for hosting nightly entertainment and internationally renowned DJs. People-watch on the patio at Streetbar, the oldest gay-owned spot on the block, then head next door for chic piano bar vibes and jazzy drinks at Stacy’s. Order the raved-about Disco fries and browse the 200-plus whiskey menu at Blackbook. Then head north and sip tropical cocktails inside the island-themed (and Christopher Kennedy-designed) Toucan’s Tiki Lounge.
