Everything is fair game here: drinks, fun, hookups, porn, and even sex. The reason? You absolutely must traverse their famous “dark room” to get to the bathroom. There’s no other way. So, let that serve as a warning (or an incentive) that you will end up in the “dark room” at some point or another during your time here. It’s located through a non-assuming door on Insurgentes Avenue, just before Michoacán street.

Mexico City is the capital of extravagant and exciting gay clubs and bars which, throughout their history, have reflected the crazy nightlife of the city. With that in mind, we have found those spaces filled with individuality and dedicated to the gay community, such as clubs with drag shows and bars especially suited for the lesbian community.
In this list of unmissable gay clubs, you will find everything from the classic Tom’s Leather Bar that has been a daring and exhibitionist option since the 90s; to Zona Rosa’s preppy club, Kinky, with this gogos and strippers; and of course La Purísima, named on multiple occasions as one of the community’s favourites.
