Bike Stop

Bike Stop, situated on Quince Street, is one of Philadelphia's longest-standing gay bars, with a reputation developed over many years. This is certainly one place you can spend a leisurely while in, as the bar is situated on four separate levels, offering so much to see and do. Depending on whether you are into watching sports or simply chilling out and chatting, you will find so much to occupy yourselves with. With the resident and visiting DJs spinning a delightful selection of tunes, one of the levels contains a dance floor where you can get very close to your boyfriend as you soak up the chilled atmosphere.

U Bar

Regarded as one of the premier gay bars in the ‘City of Brotherly Love,’ U Bar is a must-visit. Located on Locust Street, this venue is known for its unpretentious vibe and the selection of mouth-watering craft and imported beers on tap. The interior is a mixture of gaudy light fittings and exposed brickwork, and the bar staff is uniformly friendly. Between 4 pm and 6 pm daily, you can take advantage of the happy hour, where $2 will be knocked off the price of many of the menu items. In terms of a vibrant, upbeat crowd and amorous atmosphere, U Bar takes some beating.

Sammy’s Place

Open from 11 am daily, Sammy’s place can be found on North 5th Street. The owner, Sammy, is well-known in the neighborhood, and the environment within this watering hole is distinctly friendly and relaxed. The bartenders are known for their friendliness and are always ready to recommend specials. The DJs spin various Latin dance music to get toes tapping, but if you’d rather sit back and watch the latest sports events, you can do so with a selection of beers to keep you satiated. Some nights there is even a karaoke where you can wow the audience with your vocal dexterity (whether this is real or mostly in your head!)

Bar X

Bar X on South Carmac Street is a small intimate gay bar renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and wonderfully chilled vibe. The gantry behind the bar is lit in neon colors, emanating an eye-catching allure to the bottles clustered on the shelves. A nightclub situated on two floors, the bartenders are adept at making a variety of deliciously tasty cocktails, while the DJs ensure the party vibe is always kept at maximum entertainment levels.


Rosewood on Walnut Street is our final choice for your gay visit to Philadelphia. This renowned cocktail bar has a chic interior consisting of black booths where you can enjoy conversations beneath ornate chandeliers and pressed tin ceilings. Upon entering, you will undoubtedly be gobsmacked by the array of drinks clustered above the bar while the bar staff prepares handcrafted cocktails at a dizzying pace. One trademark feature is the array of classic album covers in framed portraits: from Blondie to Grace Jones.
