The beautiful city of Salamanca has a small but surprisingly lively gay nightlife scene which, though it includes just a few venues, is varied and interesting enough to keep even long-term visitors entertained. Here’s our guide to the best LGBT bars and watering holes in Salamanca.

Decked out with nautical knick-knacks, the interior of De Laval Genovés is made up to resemble a gutted submarine, and the bar is nicknamed El Submarino. The fun decor and friendly atmosphere make it an essential part of a night out in Salamanca. It’s not an exclusively gay bar, but nevertheless a favourite with Salamanca’s LGBT community.

Salamanca’s best-known gay bar, CarMen is open from mid-afternoon, when it has a laid-back, artsy vibe, until the early hours, making it a good choice for everything from coffee to late-night partying. It’s loved mainly for the great music and exceptionally nice owner, plus there’s a big dance floor, and they usually have live music on Saturday nights.


Formerly a late-night party spot just outside the city centre, this bar has been renovated, renamed and transformed into a sophisticated cocktail bar. The drinks are made to a high standard by friendly staff who are happy to help you choose. Moderate prices and ambient music make this a great choice for any night out, and the bar is particularly welcoming to their LGBT guests.
