Chiang Mai Gay Bars and Restaurants

Gay Bars, Pubs, Cafés and restaurants in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a laid back city with a small, relaxed western style gay scene catering largely to foreign ex-pats, visitors and their Thai friends. For more details read our overview of Chiang Mai Gay Scene.

This page lists some of the places where gays go to socialise, eat and drink. Given the nature of Chiang Mai, many of the venues are outdoors, though some also have air conditioned spaces. The atmosphere is quite casual in all the gay owned venues. Bars and restaurants listed here typically open until midnight, for late night clubs, discos and karaoke bars check out our Clubs and Discos listing
