TOP ST PETERSBURG GAY BARS
3 LGBT NIGHT SPOTS YOU CAN COUNT ON
FOR DANCING AND DRINKING ALL NIGHT LONG


Welcome to St-Petersburg-Essentialguide.com

St Petersburg gay bars are smaller and hidden compared to the Western countries, but despite that fun is guaranteed!

The gay scene in St Petersburg is lively and varied as in Moscow but not as big and visible as in many European countries because Russia is a conservative country. When you visit a gay friendly bar or club in Russia what happens inside stays inside. This is a common rule among the local gay community to remember!

St Petersburg is generally a safe place for gay travellers as long as you keep your profile law. So if you are planning a journey there, don't be afraid to go as a lot of fun awaits you. The city offers a vibrant but small nightlife for gay people offering a bunch of hidden venues to suit most LGBT travellers’ tastes. 

After doing back-breaking "research" just for you, here is a list of the 3 top St Petersburg gay bars where you can enjoy dance shows hosted by drag queens, club nights with international DJs, and karaoke competitions, including saunas.
