Gay-Friendly Establishments

When we say a “gay restaurant,” we mean there are gay patrons, and although they may be fun, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll find good food, good service or reasonable prices. Here are the better establishments in the city:
Chueca Resto & Bar
Soler 3283, Palermo, +54 (0)11-4963-3430

This lively bar and restaurant is situated in a remodelled house in the trendy Palermo district. It has a good atmosphere and stylish décor. There are also shows on the weekends.
Pride Cafe Resto & Café
Balcarce 869, San Telmo, +54 (0)11-4300-6435

This cute corner café is one of the few gay-friendly places open during the day. It attracts gay men sipping coffee on Sundays during San Telmo’s antiques fair. Pride Café specializes in queer coffee, homemade pies and chocolate brownies that are to die for.
Bulnes Class

Decorated with bright red walls, white leather sofas and chandeliers, this is a popular spot for young gay men searching for something a little more relaxed before hitting the nightclubs.
