Las Vegas has a lot to offer in accommodations when it comes to dining, hospitality, shopping and other recreational facilities. The city caters to all walks of life that frequent the dry desert which makes it a place of mystery and excitement.

The “Froot Loop” also known as Tropicana and Paradise is a cross street near UNLV where members of the LGBTQ+ community have coined as their hang out hot spot. Vegas‘ LGBTQ+ nightlife may not be the size of West Hollywood, California‘s but it suffices that late night dancing crave.

This area of town features two local bars and one nightclub catered to the all inclusive. The area may be receiving a new upgrade in the near future with the return of a classic nightclub. Many celebrity and industry locals may be surprised to hear that Gypsy, is making a comeback! The upcoming establishment will be built on the corner of Paradise Road and Naples Drive. We will have to wait for more details on an opening date but we hope this will provide more job opportunities for the LGBGTQ+. This area of town features Piranha Nightclub, QuadZ Video Bar and Freezone Las Vegas.

The “Froot Loop” isn’t the only place in Vegas to hang out if you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual or somewhere else on the spectrum. East Tropicana is also home to many frequently visited LGBTQ+ bars and clubs including: The Garage, Las Vegas Eagle and Hamburger Mary’s Las Vegas. Each of these LGBTQ+ hang outs offer a unique experience to say the least. If you like to drink cheap beverages, watch drag shows and explore an erotic side to the rainbow club, this may your next stop.
