Tijuana Bar ListingsNOTE:
Regular Updates -- Check often for new information.
You must pay attention to the street signs. You may see “Flores Magon” and presume that is the name of the street. You may also see a “6” in the corner. All this means is that at one time it was Calle 6 (Sixth Street) and was later also named in honor of something else. This information does help you navigate through the city.
We recommend that all novice visitors use the "buddy system" and always travel with a friend. Use caution and common sense for personal safety and protection of valuables.

, Avenida Francisco Madero. Zona centro. Between Articulo 123 and Boulevard Benito Juarez. Traditionally one of the local’s favorites, particularly on Wednesdays when they have 2 for 1 cerveza, but Zky Blue opening across the street will cause it to have to rethink its strategy. Fortunately, it has the same management. Mostly men, no transvestis allowed; has seen increased Bear patronage. Two bars, friendly. A Kenito favorite! But being monitored….Cameleon
, Don't be confused by the old sign, "Club Colibri"
Avenida Revolution at Calle 2/Calle Segundo. Upstairs
, enter off Revolution even though the bar takes the entire second floor of the corner. Daily happy hour. Pretty large, nice open feel with window seats open to the street below. Regular shows. Friendly, lots of specials. A Kenito Favorite!
This place has a solid reputation for being safe, honest, and fun.El Closet
, Avenida Revolution. This place received a BLACK BALL a few years ago for ripping off gringos. We need a current report.Club 41
Avenida Revolucion. We need specific information about this bar!El Ranchero Bar
, Plaza Santa Cecilia #769, between Calle 2 and Revolucion/Constitution. This is the Plaza where the landmark Stainless Steel Arch is located, between Calle 1 and 2/Avenida Revolution and Avenida Constitution. This is a popular cruisy drinking bar most weekend nights, but you can also find a smaller crowd during the week; the most likely place to find hustlers (mayates) and for that reason has had a less than glowing reputation unless you are looking for that. Long colorful history. Transvesti friendly. Lesbian owned, but very much a gay bar. Most of the action is upstairs, but for the practiced cruiser, also look down stairs. 2 for 1 cerveza Wednesdays; generally cheap drinks all the time.El Taurino Bar
, Corner of Calle 1 and Avenida Constitution. (Avenida Constitution runs parallel to Avenida Revolution, one block to the west.) Old style neighborhood Mexican bar, and a good place for meeting a real “local.” We don't really have a problem with Taurino, but it is not a place for a novice to wander around on foot or be alone.Hawaii
, Plaza Santa Cecilia, #768, between Calle 2 and Revolucion/Constitution. Owner says: Hawaii bar its unique to others bars in Tijuana because it's open the 24 hrs, 365 days in the year. Watch the famous "Diamante Travesti Show" and "Strip Show." Also you can have fun with really hot people and dance all night long. Shows, private rooms, dancing, nice people, good music, clean, safe, good service... and the best of all NO COVER! A new concept in Bar gays. Thanks to the management for contacting us!Mike’s Disco
, Avenida Revolucion #1220, (at Calle 6A) on the east side of Revolucion, downstairs between Calle 5 and 6. Only gay after 10 PM, but they have some decent transvesti drag and strip shows at midnight, and dancing after. One of the originals, often overlooked these days. This longtime venue of Tijuana gay nightlife is still a good place to find many Mexicans who like to dance to Spanish and English pop songs and watch excellent drag shows. Parking structure a few doors south, and worth utilizing. Telephone: 664-685-3534 Los Equipales
, Calle 7/Galena #8236, east of Avenida Revolution and across the street from Jai Alai fonton. Drag, or “Transvesti” show starts at midnight, Fridays and Saturdays. Dancing after, usually around 2 AM. Most of the action here is after the shows when the dancing begins.Fusion
, Calle Larroque #213 - On the back/north side of Plaza Viva Mall. If you walk across the border, you will exit on Calle Amistad (the same street as McDonalds) virtually at Larroque. Proceed straight on Larroque. This is the combination of the clubs Extasis and Cagamamas
. What once was two bars, Extasis and Cagamama eventually joined hands and now is a full marriage. You can enter either and walk back and forth. The Extasis side still has hunky guy strippers with a full on strip show weekends around 2 AM and modern lighting and sound. Some nights there will be a $6 or so cover, and drinks are comp after that. The action is usually best after 10 PM on Friday or Saturday. The X also has a darkroom
with several neighborhoods; some with small private rooms, but all very dark, and videos and cruising on dark, winding catwalks. Can be very busy with lots of action on weekends and other special nights. Cagamama still puts on transvesti shows at 9 PM and Midnight in a good nightclub-like setting. Full bars, dancing, club music; popular with both Mexicanos and NorteAmericanos.Message from the owners: “CLUB EXTASIS and BAR CAGUAMAMAS fuse to bring you a new concept for all your entertainment desires. The best and biggest club in all of the Baja California. The Possibilities are endless for your party pleasures. Cruise the club's two dance floors, check out the hot strippers and go-go boys, enjoy the fabulous drag show, sing at the karaoke lounge and venture in to the dark rooms all in ONE Night”Skandaloo
Avenida Revolucion. We need specific information about this bar!Terraza 9
(Disco Bar) Calle 5a, near Revolucion. 10/09 Report says that this place is now merely "gay friendly" but not really gay. We will keep it here to see if there are any changes. Villa Garcia
, Plaza Santa Cecilia #751. Next door to El Ranchero…same thing without the “class.” Some people like it, some don’t. Transvesti friendly.Zky Blue
, 735 Avenida Francisco Madero. Zona centro. This is between Articulo 123 and Boulevard Benito Juarez, and directly across the street from Bobi’s Bar. As of 10/09 and confirmed 10/10, the darkroom may be closed to some enforcement issues. This was one of Tijuana’s glitzy bars when it first opened in 2008, boasting of the latest sound and light technology; strippers, VIP room, dark room, and a live shower on the main floor. Young and hip clientele. As of 10/2010, we are advised they charge a cover. Parking lot right in front if space available. A Kenito favorite!Feel free to ask questions and receive an up to date answer.
