Taking the crown for best gay bar in Leeds, and second in the UK, is the wildly popular The Viaduct Showbar. The spot, which has over 9,600 followers on Instagram, is best known for its best queer parties with bingo, drag and burlesque nights.
It is located in Lower Briggate, close to the train station and public transport. The legendary LGBTQ+ venue recently renovated the indoor stage with a balcony overlooking, and now has a stage that could rival theaters across the country.
Other Leeds venues on the highly rated list include Bar Fibre. The fiber began life in the year 2000, where people of all ages, walks of life and walks of life could come together and enjoy a unique space with the freedom to be themselves on the trail of dance. Fiber promises to bring together some of the best talented UK DJs playing an unmistakable vocal house sound, accompanied by outlandish artists and performers and drag queens.
Queens Court, also in Lower Briggate, ranks third. This is another top gay bar in the heart of the Freedom area of Leeds. They have proudly served the gay community for over 25 years and are famous for our courtyard parties during the summer months, bringing the outdoor party atmosphere to central Leeds.
Queens Court is known for having the friendliest team of staff, as well as some of the best drink deals in town. Other gay bars in Leeds worth mentioning were Wharf Chambers, Blayds Bar, Bridge LS1 and New Penny.
