Gay life in the city
Seville is a medium-sized or even small city, so don't expect a large gay scene like in Barcelona or Madrid.
There are more than a handful of gay hangouts at night, but both the local gay population and visitors don't mind joining everyone else
at the regular "straight" clubs on most weekends. But if you don't feel like looking for the most gay or gay-friendly spots, simply
head to the area around Alameda de Hercules as the starting point. For a strictly gay environment choose one of the saunas.
Interestingly, the city does have quite a number of hotels that identify as gay-friendly, which just tells you that this is a
discretely gay destination after all.
ISBILIYYA CAFÉ-BAR - Paseo de Colón 2
Young gay men hang out (and cruise) at this bar located by Puente de Triana, sitting at the outdoor tables when the weather is warm. You'll hear 80s hits all the way to today's chart-toppers. There are special drag queen shows twice a week.
PASEO - Paseo de Colon, 2
Adjacent to Isbiliyya (see above), this popular bar plays classic hits of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. It opens late and stays open until the party is over.
HERCULES MITICO - Alameda de Hércules 93.
The location in one of the city's main avenues may have helped established this as one of the most popular gay bars in the city. It has a modern design in its interior, where the latest Spanish pop hits are played when the guest DJs are not mixing the international dance favorites. It's not very big, so it gets packed on weekends and when it hosts special themed parties.
DOMM DISCO - Edificio Vilaser, Poligono Calonge, Avda. Kansas City
This (mostly gay male) club only opens on weekends, when a group of resident DJs spin house music starting at midnight and lasting until about 6AM.
ITAKA - Calle Amor de Dios 31
Seville's favorite gay club hosts special shows twice a week. The crowd is varied (all ages and styles), spinning good dance music until whenever the last person leaves the dancefloor or the intimate backroom.
MEN TO MEN - Calle Trajano 38
Located close to Alameda de Hercules this large gay club has two levels that go from very low lighting to no lighting at all in the dark room. Those choosing not to end up there, chat over drinks to the sound of upbeat dance music. It attracts a large number of bears, but all looks and styles are welcome.
TERMAS HISPALIS SAUNA - Calle Céfiro 3
It's clean, big, and also quite attractive, decorated with warm colors. The best feature is a whirlpool that fits up to 16 men.
NORDIK - Calle Resolana 38
This well-equipped sauna includes two Jacuzzis and a swimming pool. It's especially popular on Sundays, with the dark rooms being the favorite spots.
