Austin has long been known as one of the live music capitals of the world, but what many people may not know is that the city has a thriving LGBTQ culture and arts scene. There’s no distinctively gay district, so business establishments here are spread about more than in most cities. SoCo, the South Congress Street area is home to several gay bars between Johanna and Gibson Streets. It has an eclectic array of shops, restaurants, boutiques, antiques, music venues and art galleries. But you should also explore The Second Street District and The Rainey Street District. If you want to stay close to the best gay venues, check out the South Congress Hotel.
During the Leather Weekend expect most guys to end up at The Iron Bear. If you’re a sucker for divey vibes, skip the flashy clubs and head instead to what the locals call the “bears’ lair,” where you can play pool, shoot darts, and drink cheap beers with the beefy and leather guys.
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
Gay Map of Austin
The gay clubs in Austin are largely centered around the 4th street gay district and don’t get going until around midnight. Most of the city’s gay bars are within walking distance not only of each other but of dozens of other cool mainstream bars and clubs downtown, mostly in the hip Warehouse District that’s between the Texas Capitol building and the Colorado River. The gay scene in Austin is well integrated with the town so people mix and you’ll often spot gay folks hanging out at the music clubs, trendy lounges, coffeehouses, and restaurant bars that everyone else in town likes.
Also, Austin is home to a very popular and scenic gay sunbathing area, Hippie Hollow Park, a county-operated, clothing-optional park that’s about a 30-minute drive northwest of downtown, on the rocky but scenic shore of Lake Travis.
