Cape Town may be a lot smaller than other cities in South Africa, like Johannesburg, but when it comes to gay bars Cape Town is a winner!
You might immediately Google ‘Cape Town Gay Bars’ when you arrive, but what you should also know is that Cape Town as a whole is very gay friendly – something which we found very true during Cape Town Pride.
This means that a lot of bars that aren’t ‘officially gay bars’ in Cape Town will still have a very mixed and diverse crowd. This is especially true if you head to the touristy bars on Long Street.
That being said, when it comes to gay bars in Cape Town, you will be pleased to know that there is a good selection of options! Take a look at our up to date list below and let us know where you end up!
