Located just 30 minutes south of Barcelona, Sitges is a vibrant seaside town famous for its LGBT-friendly atmosphere, picture-perfect beaches and charming town centre. A buzzing beachside destination in the summer, the rest of the year can be just as entertaining in Sitges thanks to its mild climate and fun atmosphere. Here are the best LGBT bars where you can relax and have a good time in Sitges.

1. Bears' bar

Bar, Spanish

You can guess by the name what kind of bar this popular Sitges hangout is. Suitably, the bar has a rather impressive collection of Teddy Bears on display and is only rivalled by the bears that gather on the dancefloor here at weekends. The Bears’ bar was given a full makeover in 2016 and is now one of the most popular gathering points in Sitges, boasting a large terrace with impressive views of the city.

2. Parrots

Bar, Spanish

This friendly pub is open all day from 10am and is great for a casual drink in the afternoon or a crazy night out at the weekend. The bar offers table service which is perfect for when you’d rather keep the conversation going at the table than have to get up to go to the bar. The Parrots pub is cheap, cheerful and very popular during Carnival week and during events such as Eurovision, which are screened live for a fun night of cheesy entertainment.

3. Mojito & Co

This seasonal bar is an absolute must during the summer season when it becomes one of the best places to see and be seen. Mojito & Co’s fresh, modern décor makes it perfect for daytime cocktails, while in the evenings the terrace becomes a lively gathering point and the place to enjoy…a mojito of course! There’s an ample cocktail list including classic mojitos, as well as more exotic ones with fruit and even a Japanese mojito featuring sake.

5. Central Bar Cafe

Bar, Spanish, Pub Grub

Located on Sitges’s popular Plaça de la Indústria, in the heart of the gay neighbourhood, Central Bar Cafe is one of the go-to bars on a night out. Service has been known to be a little slow and weekends can be a little mad but if you’re willing to compromise for the sake of being at the heart of the action then the Central Bar cafe won’t disappoint.

6. El Horno

Bar, Gay Bar, LGBTQ Bar, Spanish

There are two sides to this legendary gay bar: on the one hand it’s a traditional looking tavern popular with locals, but go to the back of the bar and you’ll discover a raunchy cruising area, the so-called ‘Horno’ or ‘oven’ in Spanish. What’s more, from 5pm to 7pm buy a drink at El Horno and you’ll get a second one for just €1 which may just give you the Dutch courage you need.

7. Casablanca Cocktail Bar Sitges

Bar, Cocktail Bar, Spanish, Pub Grub

The Casablanca cocktail bar is run by local couple Juan and Brandon who have owned the place since 1998. A cozy locale with an intimate lounge area decorated with local art on the first floor, the bar has regular French-themed nights – with plenty of pate and cheese – and other events throughout the year. The bar offers an altogether more relaxed and mature atmosphere than some of the other Sitges bars.
