When we first visited in 2019, we were very excited to find a gay bar in Venice and spent a lot of time researching and googling ‘gay bars Venice, Italy’.
For such a popular and trendy destination, we were surprised to find a serious lack of gay bars or gay clubs in Venice at all.
In fact, we found that the nightlife scene here is very relaxed, easy going and involves having many Aperols (which we love). With that in mind, it’s not so surprising that there isn’t really any gay nightlife in Venice…..or is there..
So where are all the Venice Gay Bars?
Venice is an incredible destination and it felt very gay friendly. That might be one of the reasons for there being no Venice gay bars on the islands – everyone is welcome everywhere.
This was definitely the case for us and we felt very much at ease to have a romantic weekend exploring Venice hand in hand.
However, if you are still looking for a gay bar or gay club in Venice, the nearest options can be found on the mainland.
