With its "anything goes" attitude, Cabo San Lucas has always been relatively tolerant and gay-friendly, and Los Cabos, in general, is hospitable to the LGBTQ community, particularly in terms of vacation villas and marriage and renewal of vows ceremonies. Despite the respectable turnout for the annual Gay Pride parade, however, the area lacks the vibrant gay nightlife scene found in some of the more highly populated Mexican cities and resort areas most notably, Puerto Vallarta. There is only one gay bar of note—Chandeliers—and much of the local scene remains centered around the larger and more diversity-friendly dance clubs like Pink Kitty and Mandala.
A fusion of cultures, gastronomies, and majestic landscapes, there is no place on Earth quite as glorious and charismatic Cape Town. It also happens to be the fabulous Gay Capital of Africa…. Granted, given the political and social background of the continent, this title is not particularly hard to claim — but Cape Town truly is gay mecca renown the world over for its luxurious hotels, vineyards, gorgeous coastline, hiking, and cosmopolitan nightlife.
Sincewhen South Africa adopted its democratic constitution, equality has been the law of the land, partly in tribute to gay freedom fighters like Ivan Toms, Justice Edwin Cameron and Afrika Tatamkulu. You can marry your partner here--or hook up at a club in the Sea Point or Waterkant gayborhoods. There's also the Western Cape wineries to check out and, for the adventurous, extreme pastimes like bungee jumping or shark-cage diving.
Cafe Manhattan, the popular meeting, eating, drinking, dancing, chilling, chatting and longest standing venue in De Waterkant Village is still one of the most popular hangouts. Although much has changed over the years, the simple and fabulous formula responsible for the success and popularity of Manhattan, as she is often referred to, has remained the same. Local and international fans have branded Chrome as the hotspot of the mother city, a venue that constantly sets new trends in the nightlife industry.
If Cape Town could have a capital entertainment point outside the many entertainment points it offers in parts of its city, Greenpoint, and Seapoint would have to be it. These two suburbs are not only sought after for how central they are in the city of Cape Town, but they are also notorious for their social scene, and often termed as the gay capital of Cape Town for the various social spots they have in the area. From beach activities, events, hotels, boutique shops and night clubs, Gay Cape Town is the place to be for a great queer experience.
Did you know that Cafe Manhattan opened at the dawn of democracy, in when our all-inclusive democracy was unveiled. Since then lots of gay bars and restaurants have become a part of the fabric of the City. There are free-entry drag shows from pm on the two middle Sundays of the month.
Nightlife is a microcosm unto itself. Half restaurant, half bar, they also offer live performers twice weekly, regular art exhibitions, and parties. Over the past few years the De Waterkant area has undergone significant redevelopment.
