GO Gay Bars in Sheffield

Gay Bars in Sheffield Unlike many cities with a gay scene, Sheffield does not have a gay pocket where all the gay venues are located, so you’ll probably need a good sense of direction if you want to take it all in.

Up until recently Sheffield only had a couple of dedicated gay venues but the shining beacon was Dempsey’s Bar [map] located right in the city centre. Open until 2am every day, this cocktail serving venue certainly knows how to keep punters happy with music every night, and Mai Tais on the menu. Dempsey's is still the most popular venue on the Sheffield gay scene and you should find drinking here a fun and friendly experience.

The bar downstairs is open during the day and in the evening this is where the karaoke and quizzes take place. However to get into the club upstairs you will need to be a member if you don’t want to be handing over a note or two at the door.

For more drinking in a fun atmosphere Ma Bakers [map] is worth a try. Pitching themselves as the “cheapest gay venue in Sheffield” in terms of drinks, this is a great venue to get in the mood for a night out. Opened in July 2003 at its Carlisle Street location this bar is run by gay people for gay people and they promise plenty of theme nights as well as male and female strippers.

You may also find strippers to accompany your drink at the Matilda Tavern [map]. This traditional venue dates back to 1825 but has only recently been refurbished and revamped as a gay venue. Here you’ll find all the ingredients to paint the town pink.

Club Xes [map], has been going for years and is a big draw for post-drink clubbing. Although it is a firm fixture in the gay scene it does have nights to accommodate a wide range of people with transvestite and fetish nights often making an appearance on the billing. Club Xes is open every night of the week and can be found on Carlise Street.

As well as gay bars there are also several gay club nights you could try. Climax is the long established gay night at the Sheffield University Student Union [map], but you’ll also find Pink Glove there every month, as well as alt. the only gay alternative music night in the city. There’s also Pink at Orchis [map] on Caver Street on Tuesdays and the fabulous Fairy Likuid, which is being held at Aqua, near Ponds Forge, while the City Hall is being refurbished.
