Let’s have fun discovering the amazing gay district at the world-famous Zona Rosa in a fun 1 mile walk for three and a half hours! Come with us to the gay heart of Mexico City with an array of more than four dozen gay bars and venues. From theaters and cabarets to rainbow, souvenir, and sex shops this is one of the largest LGBTQ+ entertainment districts in the world.
What You Will Do
On this tour we visit places like the site of the first "officially gay licensed" bar, Le Neuf, the historic 30+ year old El Taller, founded by famous writer and activist Luis González de Alba and the full collection of CabareTitos (little cabarets) run and hosted by famous star and activist Tito Vasconcelos; among many other "state-of-the-art" venues.
Meet us in the Zona Rosa gayborhood with its gay nightlife. Learn about the district's history, explore its hidden places, enjoy nightlife in a friendly city with a gay heart larger than London's Soho, New York's The Village or The Castro in San Francisco. Come bar hopping with us before the clock strikes midnight and then, if you wish, have fun on your own.
Access and availability will always depend on each venue. At some places, we have exclusive entrance rights so we will help you skip the lines! We will tour the area before deciding on which venues to visit according to the suggestions from the group.
Specialty underwear and drag wear shops, the Condomerie and Rainbowland join specialty gay Mexican buckeroo and bear joints. This is the city's LGBTQ+ watering hole. Girls only stripper bars just across from boys only stripper bars among many other offerings ensure there is something for every like and taste.
