  • Apollo

    Apollo's

    5749 N. 7th St. Phoenix, AZ 85014
    602-277-9373

    http://www.apollos.com A longtime favorite of the Phoenix gay scene, Apollo's is the kind of bar where you can have a few beers and hang with a diverse selection of drinkers. From jockish preps and fabulous drag queens to big cuddly bears and roughneck biker types, they all gather here for the camaraderie and cute bartenders. If your peepers get tired from all the people watching, there's karaoke from Thursday through Saturday, and the infamous "Greek God Revue" strip show on Sundays. Read more about Apollo's >>

  • Bar 1

    Bar 1

    3702 N. 16th St. Phoenix, AZ 85016
    602-266-9001

    http://www.bar1bar.com Far from the leather bars, rainbow-flagged saunas, and diva-filled discotheques elsewhere, Bar 1 is casual gay nightlife that still knows how to have fun. Its easygoing, candlelit, and ridiculously immaculate atmosphere allows patrons to talk in their (gasp!) indoor voices whether relaxing by the fireplace, playing pinball, or unwinding on the outdoor patio. Fun-loving freaks can check their pants with one of the friendly barkeeps on Wednesday night for $1-off drinks and $6 pitchers of Long Island iced tea, or lose their shirts on Sunday for $1.25 drafts. Specials for the clad also are available. Read more about Bar 1 >>

  • BS West

    BS West

    7125 E. Fifth Ave. Scottsdale, AZ 85251
    480-945-9028

    http://www.bswest.com BS West is absolutely one of the friendliest clubs you'll ever party at, whether you're bi, gay, straight, or none of the above. Hidden in Scottsdale's back streets (despite its Fifth Avenue address), the party's always pumpin', with enough stud muffins in attendance to make a het fella rethink his sexuality. It's got the feel of a two-story gay frat house in the midst of Scottsdale's party scene, with a 2-4-1 hump day special that makes BS the place to hit on Wednesday nights. But as wild as it can get, BS still retains a neighborly feel, where people aren't afraid to converse with one another, or at least flirt shamelessly. And the bartenders actually seem happy to have your business, unlike at some other places where they make you feel like they're doing you a favor by serving you. BS has been going strong since 1988, and if it stays the way it is, it'll probably be alive and kickin' in 2088. Read more about BS West >>

  • Charlie

    Charlie's

    727 W. Camelback Road Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-265-0224

    http://www.charliesphoenix.com For years, this swishy CenPho saloon was known as the "lil bitty ol' pissant country place" that almost exclusively attracted only tight-Wranglered gay folk and Marlboro Mary's. But times have changed and so has Charlie's. A renovation last year has improved the décor and expanded its size considerably, offering a much larger dance floor on which a far more diverse crowd can either bust out with two-steppin' or shake their asses to high-energy dance, country music, and Latin-oriented jams all night. Some things haven't changed; there's still the always-muscular bartending staff and after-hours dancing until 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Read more about Charlie's >>

  • Club Zarape

    Club Zarape

    1730 E. McDowell Road Phoenix, AZ 85006
    480-946-0416

    To say that this CenPho showclub and gay vaquero bar is colorful would be an understatement. A lively variety of neon lights and multicolored decorations mix with a vibrant vibe and diverse clientele that visit Zarape on a nightly basis. Its female illusionist revues blend sass, style, music, and comedy into playful drag spectaculars featuring hits from such popular Latina divas as Shakira and Gloria Trevi being lip-synched by local drag artists, who also add plenty of wit, charm, and well-timed raunch into their trills. But when the revues end and the spotlight dims, these colorful characters don't vacate the premises. They're just as apt to hang out and interact with the cowboy-booted caballeros that stop by Zarape to spend the evening dancing to salsa, cumbia, banda and norteño music.

  • Cruisin

    Cruisin' 7th

    3702 N. 7th St. Phoenix, AZ 85014
    602-212-9888

    http://www.cruisin7th.com A few things differentiate Cruisin' 7th from other local gay bars -- a complete lack of posturing and its significant cross-dressing clientele. It's not unusual to see female illusionists and other practitioners of the drag lifestyle sporting their finest frocks at the CenPho club, whether they're participating in the Tuesday karaoke night or witnessing one of the various revues or male stripper shows that go on throughout the week. It's the kind of place where anything goes -- as long as you're respectful and play nice with others. As one regular aptly describes this "island of misfit toys," it is where anyone can feel safe and let loose, regardless of their particular kink or sexual orientation. "If you don't fit in anywhere else, you'll fit in here," as they say. Read more about Cruisin' 7th >>

  • Oz

    Oz

    1804 W. Bethany Home Road Phoenix, AZ 85015
    602-242-5114

    http://www.ozphx.com With the only nod to its name being a poster of Dorothy and her friends hanging in the front entryway, the surroundings of this land of Oz are less Emerald City and more leather-rimmed bar, beer logo mirrors, and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" blaring from the jukebox. It all makes sense, considering this is a joint that likens itself to the gay bar version of Cheers. Underneath a sparkling asphalt-like ceiling hanging over the bar, the mostly male crowd of gay northside locals kicks back and orders up cheap brews or food brought in from a nearby wine burger joint. With a small but hopping patio scene near a row of scooters, projection TV, and a happy hour from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, the Oz Bar may not be lined with yellow bricks, but at least it ain't Kansas, honey.

  • Pat O

    Pat O's Bunkhouse Saloon

    4428 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-200-9154

    http://www.bunkhousesaloon.com Although Pat O's Bunkhouse is a hotspot for big, burly, bearded gay guys, the sign outside reads, "Open. Everybody is welcome" -- and it's true. A wide assortment of LGBT types visit here for such weekly events as Texas Hold 'Em on Mondays and Tuesdays, karaoke on Wednesdays, and the always outrageous Underwear Night on Thursdays.

  • Plazma

    Plazma

    1560 E. Osborn Road Phoenix, AZ 85014
    602-266-0477

    http://www.myspace.com/phxplazma A video bar, drinkery, and nightspot all rolled into one, Plazma is a quaint hangout for the LGBT community, tucked away just off 16th Street, providing a cool haven to shoot pool, chat over drinks, and even suck down colorful Jello shots from plastic syringes. When the jukebox isn't bumping out techno or pop diva hits (which is often) the multiple plasma TVs are showing videos and campy movies. The weekly Plazma Playhouse also features performances by such gender-bending female illusionists and drag queens such as Afeelya Bunz, with numerous drink specials on tap nightly.

  • The Rock

    The Rock

    4129 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-248-8559

    http://www.therockdmphoenix.com There are a number of LGBT-oriented hot spots in CenPho's Grandview neighborhood, and this cozy joint may be one of the most laid-back of the bunch. The main bar area has a touch of modern swankiness, and the cheerful staff is happy to pour you a pint from the standard selection of taps. The Rock's mixed drinks are cheap but pack a punch. Boasting a patio, a rec room for darts and video games, and a performance showroom in addition to the bar, The Rock is damn near a clubhouse for all the interests of its diverse clientele. Various nights include karaoke, darts league, stand-up comedy, and poker. Weekends get busy with regulars coming out for Valley drag diva icon Barbara Seville's weekly performances, as well as various female illusionist shows and charity benefit performances in rotation.

  • Roscoes On 7th

    Roscoes On 7th

    4531 N. 7th St. Phoenix, AZ 85014
    602-285-0833

    http://www.roscoeson7th.com This athletic-themed CenPho gay bar is typically packed with both sports spectators and participants alike, as Roscoes sponsors several local rec league teams and hosts weekly pool tournaments. Trophies upon trophies adorn one corner of the establishment and celebrate the achievements of these weekend warriors, while the pennants for local pro teams dotting the walls show off Roscoes' support for hometown heroes. During football season, the joint opens at 10 a.m. on weekends for the early games, and various happy hour specials are offered throughout the week, such as two-for-one cocktails and domestic beers on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The bartenders usually wear referee jerseys, and aren't afraid to cite patrons who perpetrate party fouls. Read more about Roscoes On 7th >>

  • The Twisted Peacock (formerly Ice Pics Video Bar)

    The Twisted Peacock (formerly Ice Pics Video Bar)

    3108 E. Mc Dowell Road Phoenix, AZ 85008
    602-267-8707

    According to both the bartenders and regulars at this Phoenix gay hangout, Ice Pics is where people can be themselves -- be they rich or poor, old or young -- and enjoy a night out without worrying about what they're wearing or what tax bracket they fall into. Entertainment abounds via the multiple television screens playing music videos or from the stage area in the back where female illusionist revues and strip shows are presented throughout the week. While there's no kitchen to speak of, the Red Devil restaurant next door can deliver food to customers who want to soak up the two-for-one drinks that are available until 8 p.m. each night. Still concerned that you might be a bit over the legal limit? Fear not. The bar provides free rides home from local cab companies, so you can be sure that you'll arrive home safe and sound.

  • Zoan

    Zoan

    4301 N. 7th Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85013
    602-265-3233

    http://www.facebook.com/theZoan Previously known as zGirl Club -- as well as Misty’s, Desert Rose, and Talk of the Town before that -- this after-dark destination in the heart of the Melrose District gay epicenter as one of the longest-running lesbian bar establishments in the Valley. Under its current existence as Zoan, it always seems to be crammed to the gills with Sapphic sirens of every stripe. From “bois” with spiky hairdos to jockish gals in shorts and tee shirts, ladies from around the Valley gather here to flirt and frolic while shooting pool or relaxing in its gorgeous side lounge. Dancing fun is offered within the video bar vibe of the main room, where high-energy club tracks and eye-catching visuals are played on numerous HD screens and Zoan’s bartenders pour such adult beverages as the “Pop My Cherry.” Hit the place during its electronica night, and you’ll likely find girls grinding on each other to Lady GaGa pop or EDM tracks, as well as the occasional femme fatale in skin-tight black pleather.

  • Zorf

    Zorf's

    1028 E. Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ 85014
    602-277-7729

    http://www.zorfs.com Featuring arguably the most unique moniker for a gay bar in the Valley, Zorf’s is also distinctive for another reason: It’s got a small dog park on the premises, complete with a fire hydrant nearby and a waste disposal station. Both the name and the pooch park are due to owner Kenny Caron’s affinity for canines (Zorf happens to be his beloved Boxer/Labrador), which is why water dishes dot the dog-friendly patio and ads for pet adoption services are tacked to a bulletin board. It’s just as doggone welcoming for two-legged creatures inside the cheery place, however. The staff is anything but catty and there’s a living room-like vibe and plush seating where one can sit, stay, and partake in local microbrews like Sleepy Dog Red Rover Irish Ale (natch), one of its signature cocktails, or nightly live entertainment like drag shows and comedy gigs. Just don’t forget to take Fido outside when nature calls. Read more about Zorf's >>
