Where is Las Vegas’s Gayborhood?

Las Vegas Fruit Loop - Apple Maps

from Apple Maps

While gay life in Vegas – though scarce until recently – is scattered on and off the Strip, its unofficial gay district, known as the “Fruit Loop,” serves as the heart of Vegas’ LGBT community. Located near the intersection of Paradise Road and Naples Drive, this strip mall is home to a variety of clubs, bars and a bookstore frequented by a diverse crowd seven days a week. On the other side of town, the Commercial Center, located on Sahara Ave., provides even more alternative outing options.

Popular bars and clubs include Freezone, featuring the Queens of Las Vegas, the longest-running drag show in Sin City; Piranha Nightclub and 8 1⁄2 Lounge, where free drinks are often given to those who imbibe in the underwear; Badlands Saloon, attracting a country-western crowd; Gipsy, voted ‘Original and Legendary Gay Nightclub’ by GayVegas.com; Goodtimes, which plays a variety of music, including’80s and industrial; and Girl Bar, Vegas’ only lesbian dance party, held Saturday nights at Krave Nightclub, the only alternative hot spot located on the Strip.
