Lima Gay-Friendly Nightlife
For many years, Lima has been a conservative city; only ten years ago, gay-oriented services and businesses were not something to be openly discussed in public. However, things are changing quickly, although at a slower pace than other Latin American cities such as Mexico city, São Paulo, Buenos Aires or Rio de Janeiro.
Nowadays, Lima hosts an annual gay pride event and gay-friendly hotels, restaurants and related business are starting to bloom, not to mention gay nightlife and sex clubs.
Gay-friendly restaurants and bars are inaugurated almost every day, and some of them are very popular even among non-gay partygoers.
While most large cities in in the world have a vibrant gay nightlife, the one in Lima features a special elegance due to its variety, sophistication and elegance. Gay lifestyle in Lima is just starting to grow, but it doesn't mean it's boring. Its events may be smaller than the ones hosted in another cities, but they are carefully produced and the results are spectacular.
Most of this can be found in Miraflores, an upper-scale Lima district located by the sea which hosts most of the gay-friendly night life, with places like La Sede, Bobo Bar, Downtown Vale Todo, Legendaris, or the Calle De Las Pizzas, the latter being popular for gay and straight “cruising.”
Lince is another gay-friendly district, although a little less classy: there you will find Dark, a very gay-friendly video club, and Andel, which comprises cafe-bar, karaoke and hostel, all in one place.
Regarding to hotels, all Lima hotels will welcome you, but you may want to try the hospitality of Hostal El Patio or Casa San Martín. read more about Lima Gay-Friendly Nightlife... Read More
