That rarest of LGBT things, a genuinely mixed lesbian and gay bar.
Opened in 2011, the Pin-up Bar is that rarest of LGBT things, a genuinely mixed lesbian and gay bar. It’s also the newest scene success story in what has in recent years become Switzerland’s gay second city. Slightly more female than male oriented, the bright, airy space on an arty shopping street is decorated with kitsch, retro-risqué wall paintings of ‘40s-style foxtresses and there’s a small terrace on the street that’s packed in good weather. The drinks selection is great, free platters of cheese and cold cuts often come out, and you can even puff on a sheesha pipe here. Pin-up regularly joins forces with another local gay lounge bar, GT’s, to put on dance parties under the banner Lausanne LesBiGay Sessions. A trailblazer.
