TAIPEI Gay Bars & Clubs

Taipei’s main gay district is located in the Red House District, a large outdoor complex featuring shops, bars and restaurants. All of the bars on the ground floor have large terraces, perfect for watching the boys walk by throughout the day and well into the night.

Funky is one of Taipei's longest running and most popular gay clubs - very busy at weekends.

Our guide to gay bars in Taipei.

Many of the cafe bars in Taipei open from  5pm in the early evening. The dance bars tend to open later between 7pm and 9pm. The red house district is usually pretty full by 10pm, especially from Thursday to Sunday. There are a wide range of bars to choose from, from bijou resto-bars offering delicious local and international food to friendly bears bars and karaoke lounges.

The clubbing scene has undergone quite a change over the past two years with the closure of two large club venues leaving promoters with a lack of space to promote parties such as G5. We will keep you updated as things progress throughout 2015/16.

Beyond the Red House, if you are close to Taipei City Hall, check out Empress, a chic bar attracting guys and girls in the 20s to 30s and a trendy hang out for those looking to network and make new friends. La Boca on Zhongshan Dunhua has become one of the most popular venues along with Park. Both offer a delicious range of teas in the afternoon and mesmerizing Yellow Mojitos after sunset.

All of the bars we visited in Taipei were friendly and welcoming. English is spoken in most, however a little Mandarin can go a long way. Tipping is appreciated. There are a lot of gay and gay friendly hotels close to the Red House district offering great value for money, however rooms can be on the smaller side. The hotels near City Hall offer a more luxurious alternative and increasing your budget by just EUR 20 per night can make a big difference in room quality. Getting a taxi to the gay districts is quick and cheap.

  • Where to Stay

    If you want to be close to the gay bars, stay in the Red House District – hotels here are smaller and more economical. The downtown district is where you will find 5 star hotels and luxury shopping. Both options are easy to reach using public transport.
