A Huge and Diverse LGBT Scene for a Huge and Diverse City

Esa página está disponible también en español.

Sprawling Mexico City has a huge gay scene for every taste from working class bars to trendy dance clubs. Calle Amberes at Paseo de la Reforma in the Zona Rosa (Pink Zone) is the center of the gay scene with bar after bar lined up on the same street. The rest of the Zona Rosa is filled with shops, restaurants, tourist hotels and a number of other bars (straight and gay).

The historic center also has a hopping gay scene, centered on Republica de Cuba street, with sometimes grittier but also often trendy places.

There are plenty of other gay clubs, gay friendly restaurants and gay cruising in other neighborhoods as well, especially Roma, Condessa and Polanco. See the listing guides and neighborhoods below.

The city is modern and progressive too. Same sex marriage has been legal in the Distrito Federal since 2010 (it is decided state by state in Mexico), and the local government has supported LGBT causes and there is a well developed infrastructure of support for the community. Enjoy all Mexico City has to offer, we're sure the friendly Chilangos will make you feel welcome!

If you're looking for nearby destinations from Mexico City, check out the State of Mexico or Morelos state (Cuernavaca and Tepoztlán).

    Centro Historico CDMX

    Few neighborhoods anywhere contain as much history, architecture, culture and just plain life—high, low and otherwise—as does Mexico City’s ancient downtown. After some recent tough times, the Centro is reasserting its central place in the urban fabric—and is an essential stop for every LGBT visitor. Its narrow streets are jammed with incredible architecture; great new hotels and restaurants join old-schoolers that have been there forever. Not least of all, LGBT nightlife is booming downtown. The neighborhood’s intangible urbanity, seemingly lost in time, is something that LGBT people truly appreciate: the city as a place of surprises and freedom; a pageant of the grand and the humble; the temple of high culture, next door to the dive-y corner bar.

    Gracias para su comentario.

    No podemos conocer todos los partes de México todo al tiempo. Entonces tenemos que depender en la comunidad para decirnos cuando hay cambios: lugares que están cerrados o cambiado o lugares nuevos. Si usted saber de algún información en el sitio que no esta correcto, podría:

    • dejar un comentario en el negocio que esta cerrado o cambiado con el información nuevo
    • llenar el formulario para un negocio nuevo o que no esta en la mapa.
    • escribirnos a con el información

    Muchas gracias!
