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
Chiang Mai also has a commercial gay scene comprising go-go and host bars where you can meet gay for pay guys. These venues are listed on our gay go-go bars page
To make it easy to find the venues listed go to our Downloads Page to download the Radchada Café quick reference list of gay venues with addresses and directions in Thai, which you can show to your driver. Or you can use our Gay Guide Map.
