WWhile there are exclusively lesbian and gay clubs and bars in South Africa’s cities, there are also many establishments that, along with members of the LGTBQ+ communities, welcome anyone who wants to party the night away.

South Africa is known as a gay-friendly destination and Johannesburg is no exception. Its bars, cafe culture and trendy restaurants maintain an upbeat tempo all-year round. From township venues to dance spots, Johannesburg’s rhythm never lets up on its exciting atmosphere.

H-Bar is a popular part of the gay and lesbian party scene. Also in Johannesburg, Simply Blue has a reputation as a leading gay bar. There’s also an exclusive bar at the REC Room and Factory is another men-only bar next to Ellis Park Sports grounds.
