Undoubtedly the most well known of gay bars in Leeds is The Viaduct Showbar, boasting live entertainment every night from some of the areas feistiest and most glamorous performers this side of Las Vegas.
Queens Court (or QC to the locals) has fantastic early evening drinks deals (2 for 1 on everything bar champagne, boo!) so can be very busy, especially at the weekends.
Fibre mainly attracts a younger, image consciousness, cooler crowd who are up for partying until the sun rises. Upstairs is the recently opened Penthouse, a private members club with booths available for hire.
Attracting mainly a gay crowd throughout the week and weekend, you’re sure to bump into some familiar faces here. Imagine Cheers but a hundred times more fabulous and you are almost there.
No night out is complete without a trip to The Bridge, which boasts free karaoke with Miss Sordid Secret every Friday night.
The Penny (as its regulars refer to it) is reportedly the oldest gay pub not only in Leeds, but in the UK.
Not a specific LGBT venue per se, Wharf Chambers hosts a number of events and groups focused on LGBT issues, feminism and art, amongst a whole myriad of other topics.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel is not an LGBT specific venue, but it is the centre point for the Trans event, Leeds First Friday, which is the biggest monthly Trans social event in the UK.
Multi venue super club, Mission, is situated under the train arches and next door to The Viaduct
