The Laird

audience rating 4.9 stars from 12 votes - click to vote

Australia’s longest-running exclusively gay bar/hotel. The Laird is widely known as a gay institution – to the extent that it has been granted permission by Victoria’s Anti-Discrimination Board to operate a men-only policy.

The Laird caters to a wide range of men but is particularly popular with the leather, bear and alternative crowd. Different theme each week, from a relaxed and informal pool competition to a hardcore event with dress code.

Check Laird’s website for agenda.

Gayer than ever since the change in door policy. The PEEL, now exempt from the Anti-Discrimination Act, is a predominately gay male venue that has been around for over 25 years.

There are 3 bars, a dance floor and a courtyard. Open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with regular special events and drag acts. Age-check ID required (for travellers, this means your passport), and dress appropriately.
