Barcelona

Fabulous architecture, artists, shopping and climate and then there's the MEN! who make Barcelona a must-visit city on anyone's list.

Is a very nice city, mediterranean, with some interesting places for older people and admirers. Although there are many gay places, they aren't located in the same area. So you have to check your list and make your route before going out, and moving from one to the other by taxi or tube (tube is very easy; no way to get lost).

Bars/Clubs
La Paloma
c/Tigre 27 (Metro: Sant Antoni)
Though not strictly gay, the classic La Paloma dance hall is deliciously camp and, music-wise, firmly and happily rooted in the past. You can dance your heart out without feeling ridiculous, or simply watch the spectacle from the antique balconies. Open: Thurs, 6-9:30pm and 11:30pm-3:30am; Fri and Sat, until 5am; and Sun from 6-10pm.

This place is equipped with interesting double seats (without armrest in between) located in some of the rear rows.

Sala X

Not as good as the old Sala X above

Benidorm

Benidorm has always been something of a cliche as a tourist destination for the worst kind of British tourist (the kind that think wearing socks with open toed sandals and "Kiss Me Quick" hats are the height of fashion!).

However, there has been considerable improvement here over recent years as many of the cheaper destinations in Spain have allegedly been trying to move up market - but there are still many football-shirt wearing, badly-dressed Brits who thankfully, tend to congregate at the other end of the town amongst the high-rise apartment blocks.

Nevertheless, Benidorm is a very worthwhile place to visit for old and young for both the nightlife (it boasts 3 large bars for older man/admirers amongst the 25 gay bars) and the charm of the beach and Old Town. The gay bars and clubs tend to be in the small streets of the Old Town section of Benidorm, although the bars for older men and admirers are a little way out of of the town centre and worth taking a taxi to if you find walking uphill difficult.

Many retirees flock here for the warmer weather mainly from the UK, Netherlands and Scandinavia as well as Spanish from the North - making for some incredible eye-candy for lovers of mature men as they strut along the beach in their skimpy swimming trunks - thankfully the fashion for wearing baggy shorts to swim in hasn't caught on that much. The Spanish arrive in May and October for a free holiday and the rest between those months.

Many of the older Spanish men also try a little "life on the wild side" and there are also local younger men with sultry dark looks after them. The Spanish older men do tend to be short if "perfectly formed" and it helps if you can speak some Spanish in order to have fun with the locals but much can be accomplished with eye contact and body language!

Bars

Incognito
Avenida Uraguay
Open 10pm until late
Just up the hill from JJ's.
This bar is run by Pepe (Ex JJ's) a
nd very popular with the older Spanish crowd and silverfox holiday makers. Much the same layout as JJ's- TV lounge, video room, darkroom with private cabins, etc. Large dance floor where the older Spanish couples show just what good dancers they are and which is also used for a hilariously bad drag show on Friday and Saturday nights. Great atmosphere, very welcoming. Drinks slightly cheaper than JJ's. Has dreadful Spanish drag shows which are sometimes so bad they're funny! Airconditioning tends to be switched off dring week days which can mean it gets very smokey.
Gray 90%, Admirer 10%, Rent 0%, Music 6, Cruise 6, Elegance 5,
Smoke 7(9) 

JJ Private Bar
Avendida
Uraguay (under Hiper-Condor)

This leads into a large open darkroom with private cabins for you to get acquainted with a new friend.
Fairly busy during the week and v
ery busy at the weekend until about midnight when everyone seems to drift up the hill to Incognito.

Granada
The Tic Tac

Horno de Haza 19 (near to the Plaza de los Lobos)
Has a reputation for being very cruisy. The clientele is largely male, and of all ages from late teens to much, much older men. The atmosphere is a little seedy, beginning with the two sets of padded doors and doorbell at the entrance and revolving crowd passing through the velvet curtains to check out the scene in the dark back room.

El Angel Azul
C/Lavadero de las Tablas no. 15 (near the Plaza de los Lobos)
The "Blue Angel" is around the corner from the Tic Tac and similar in its clientele and offerings, though a little more upscale and a little less seedy.

Ibiza
Ibiza is an Island resort in the Mediterranean which tends to attract the younger crowd but also has a big gay following. The ramparts of the old fort are very cruisy.

Madrid
The gay nightlife is much easier to get to than Barcelona. There is a neighborhood called "Chueca" (the same named tube station takes you to the main square in it) where you could find 90% of the gay places of the city. It's mainly for younger people, but there are also mature people.

Dumbarton
c/Zorrilla 7
Tel: 429 8191
Small, friendly bar on two levels, thoroughly to be recommend. Good mixture of ages, but mostly mature 50-75. The big bonus of Dumbartum is that it is busy early, around 9pm, so you do not have to wait until midnight for the crowd to arrive. Don't be shocked if someone asks you to go downstairs to get to know them - - there are "love seats" there for you to get better acquainted as well as porno videos to view.

Rick's
Gran Via Clavel, 8 (Metro: Chueca)
Tel: 91-531-91-86
Open daily from 11:30pm "until sometime in the early morning."
The bar has an all-black exterior adjacent to a luminescent hotel entrance. It has a friendly atmosphere that attracts an older local crowd. Unlike most of the bars in the area, this is a classy joint -- based on the fictional Rick's in Casablanca (including the cigarette smoke!). It's decorated with Bogie paraphernalia, including marble floors and gilt columns. The only thing missing is a piano player singing "As Time Goes By". Open daily from 11:30pm "until sometime in the early morning." Drink prices are inexpensive but there is a weekend cover charge of Ä10.

Probably the best sauna for older and admirer. It works everyday from morning to 10 pm, but is best after lunch (3-6pm)

Internacional
C/ Jose del Prado y Palacios (Metro Vinateros)
It's a little bit hidden, at the ground floor of a building of apartments, close to a gym. It's far from the city centre, but it worths a visit too. Less clean than Príncipe sauna, but totally different people (many married people, and less queens). Open monday to friday, from 4 pm to 8 pm.

Sitges

Sitges, one of Europe's famous gay resorts, is only busy in the summer months, July/September. The end of August/September is the best time to go. Just sit in on of the terraces and what the mostly gay crowd walk past. Thoroughly enjoyable.

More sophisticated and picturesque than some other Spanish resorts, Sitges has been a gay venue for many years. Barcelona is only half an hour away by train and has enough sights to keep you occupied for days, as well as an extensive gay scene of its own.

Increasingly attracting a more mature crowd and offering places for them to go and meet the younger crowd, although these tend to be on the small side and for mixed ages.

Beaches
There are basically two choices of gay beaches: the main one in town is just in front of the Calipolis Hotel. It's a pleasant, clean sandy beach with sun loungers available for hire and other facilities such as showers. The beach shelves gently into the sea so it's okay for paddling as well as swimming. This beach is mainly (not exclusively) gay, with the proportion of gay to straight varying according to when in the season you visit. You can tell it from the rest as it is the only one with a rainbow flag on the beach sign.

The other (nude) beaches are a couple of miles south of the Town. Walk or get the bus to the Terramar Hotel (looks like a wedding cake) and then walk on along the coast past the golf course and over the top of the railway tunnel. There is now a regular service bus, but I found that, like the private service that preceded it, this did not seem to run to time. Catching it was a matter of luck. There are two nudist beaches, the second one more exclusively gay. Cruising goes on in the woods behind, but if you cross the line, watch out for trains! We didn't visit these very often: the stunning bodies on the main beach were enough.

Bars
Bear's Bar
Carrer Bonaire, 17
Following the cheeky neon arrow on the sign outside, you'll find a busy bar for Bears, Cubs, Chubs and their admirers and a resulting slightly older crowd. Lots of saucy films going on over the screens and there's a dark room. Open daily at the usual bar times.

New Comodin

Older gentleman's bar. Also has drag some nights - tacky but quite fun.

Dark room is through an archway and the back bar shows blue movies on the telly.
