If you become as overwhelmed as we were, the only thing you need to know is that Studiestræde and the surrounding streets in the old Latin Quarter (near the City Hall) is the unofficial Copenhagen gay area and the hub of LGBT nightlife here …but by no means the only place to spend the night with your global queer family.
Copenhagen has something for everyone from utterly over-the-top glitter queer club parties to relaxed pubs and Scandinavian chic bars, and that is without exploring all the LGBT-friendly options. If none of these gay venues seem for you, remember many gays in Copenhagen don’t feel the need to segregate themselves to the ‘gay ghetto’, and because Copenhagen’s nightlife is very openminded, you can meet people everywhere you go.
No matter how you choose to explore Gay Copenhagen, you are unlikely to experience any issues in what is one of the most gay-friendly cities in Europe.
Gay Nightclubs in CopenhagenNever Mind – A gay club in the heart of Copenhagen’s gay scene with strong drinks and an even stronger bass line. Never Mind has a excellent drink selection and plenty of cute guys, while the party does not get going until after one, it does go until 6 am if you want to go all in. Sadly, smoking is also allowed here…Come on Copenhagen!
G-A-Y Copenhagen – One of the most popular gay clubs in Copenhagen, but how buzzing it depends on the time of year. The dance floor gets hot and heavy later into the night, with mainstream pop music which can get a bit annoying. Think more Despacito and less Born this Way. Only open Thursday till Saturday, check their Facebook for latest events and nightly drink specials.
THROWback @ Jolene – A mostly dance party that is insanely popular. Being the first gay dance party in Copenhagen, we can only expect more are on the way soon, but we were just happy enough to dance all night with cool vibes and funk / R&B music setting the tone.
Mainstream @ Bøssehuset – Infrequent non-profit queer parties aims to create a safe space for everybody held at the Gay House in Christiania.
POPism @ KB18 – Fierce gay parties held every 3-4 months with trashy pop, sexy dancers, international DJ’s and more queer spirit than we can handle!
