Seattle is known for its coffee, music scene, and that place where they throw fish back and forth. We decided to dig a little deeper and see what the Emerald City had to offer when in the way of gay nightlife, and boy are we glad we did!

The name says it all, R Place is an open, fun, and hot gay bar in downtown Seattle. This diverse bar in Capital Hill has lots of space to hang out, and a great dance floor. Although they charge a cover, drinks are cheap and the boys are mostly hot! R Place 619 E Pine St, Seattle, WA 98122

Seattle’s largest and longest running gay club, Neighbours, has not only one of the biggest dance floors in the city, but is home to some of the city’s most notorious drag queens. For the kids, it becomes 18+ after 2 AM, which is genius if you think about it. Neighbours gets our pick for best music and drag show, but watch out, drinks ain’t cheap! Neighbours 1509 Broadway Seattle, WA 98122

Happy hours all week and our favorite bar tenders in Seattle landed The Cuff Complex on our list this week. A grungy dive bar that somehow works for everybody, and is the best place to drink in Seattle on a Sunday! Double well drinks are $4.50, regular well drinks, half that! Don’t judge this bar by its cover, The Cuff was a blast! The Cuff Complex 1533 13th Ave Seattle, WA 98122

heytranny-nark-magazineWild Rose is our lesbian pick of the week! This bar restaurant is where the lesbians go in Seattle. We fell in love with Taco Tuesdays, where you can get cheap beers all night and $1 tacos. $4 bloody mary’s on Sundays sealed the deal! Also a great place to drink outside when the weather is nice in their Bush Gardens! Wild Rose 1021 E Pike St Seattle, WA 98122

For a club with a more lounge type feel to it, Q is the place to go! This club is great for dancing or socializing, with a very chic city feel to it. Their infused in house vodka selection makes for some very creative and delicious cocktails! Cover on the weekend, but that seems to be a thing here in the Emerald City! Q 1426 Broadway Seattle, WA 98122
