Munich Gay Bars

Munich is Germany's third largest city and is located in Bavaria in the south of country. There is a thriving LGBTQ+ scene in the city and queer life is embraced here. A very historic city with beautiful architecture, Munich is of course famed for it's annual Oktoberfest, but you can find beer halls to drink in all year round.


Bar Rendezvous

Drag, Karaoke

The small bar "Rendezvous" on Müllerstrasse has been around for eight years. This is where people meet for beer, travesty shows and karaoke on Thursdays. And flirting is part of the evening program.

Bar zur Feuerwache

Older Crowd

Bar zur Feuerwache - The living room in the Munich scene - Delicious drinks and various small dishes - Our happy hour from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ensures lots of fun and good entertainment every day of the year.

Cafe Glück

Lesbian, Food

Cafe Glück is an institution within the Munich restaurant- and bar-circuit for about 13 years. It lays within the almost romantic "Glockenbachviertel", a part of Munich where queer and straight, student and worker, bohemian and bourgeois is mixing effortlessly. The interior is an eclectic, still original mix of antiques and neo-hippie-style, the daily menu is always fresh and healthy, the staff friendly and as varied as the audience, the music relaxed, still modern. A very special, lovely and original place.

Cafe NiL

Cosy, Pub Vibes

Back to the roots! The legendary NiL, one of the first bars in the Munich gay community, is back. The original with Manfred as host. As in the past, he welcomes guests of all ages. They should get to know each other and feel completely at home. The scene finally has its long-missed living room back. Bigger and more glamorous than ever.

Young Crowd, Dancing, Cruising

Fetish, Cruising

The Ochsengarten is Europe's oldest gay bar for jeans, leather, uniform and rubber guys (since 1967). We look forward to welcoming guests with outfits based on this dress code, especially on weekends. It is not only our wish that our guests feel comfortable in their outfits, but we also strive to preserve the tradition of the ox garden. Conclusion: No strict dress code, but outfits in the tradition of the ox garden are very welcome and welcome.



The Prosecco sees itself as a fun and event location for a mixed party audience who simply want to party beyond all style constraints and stressful clubbing. Start your "night out" with us or drop by when the other bars have long since sat up! With us you will find people of all ages - gay and straight - can dance to a mix of hits, schnulz and charts ... or just sip your drink from the extensive drinks menu. We claim that you don't have to do this alone for long if you are open ... It never gets boring - Daša takes care of that, who spares no effort to turn the decoration inside out and keeps the mood high as a DJ.

Sub Cafe


A few steps from Gärtnerplatz is the cafe in the Sub, a pillar of the gay, social and cultural center for gay, bisexual and queer men and trans people in Munich. The Cafe im Sub is the meeting point for everyone who wants to meet up with their friends or make new acquaintances - or who want to find out what's going on in Munich's gay scene. The cafe offers a large selection of drinks - juices, teas, beers, long drinks - at reasonable prices and is run entirely by volunteers. All income from the cafe operation goes to the LGBTI * offers of the sub. However, there is no compulsion to consume in the cafe. On some evenings, certain clubs or organizations (e.g. TransMann, LeTRa, Bushido Karate and many more) take over the counter service in the cafes. These theme evenings enable our guests to get to know many of the LGBTIQ * groups in the community directly and to talk to them. (Thanks to the counter service in the sub, groups and initiatives have the opportunity to present themselves and their offers and to actively support the community.) The Sub is also a cultural center and offers many artists the opportunity to exhibit their work on the walls of the cafe. Concerts, readings and lectures also take place regularly in the house and show how diverse and colorful our community is! Especially for those who are only just beginning to deal with their own gender identity and / or sexual orientation, there are low-threshold opportunities for discussion through advice in the evening or the information service. You can read or borrow relevant books and information material from and for the community in our cozy library. There is something for everyone here - for every person, every culture, every age group and every interest.
