Gay and Lesbian Nightlife
UPDATE – Currently all indoor bars and nightclubs are closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Provincetown has been a mecca for gay and lesbian visitors for decades and the fun-filled nights are a big part of the allure.
The early evening starts at the Boatslip Resort for their world famous daily Tea-Dance. Enjoy dancing and drinks with your closest 1000 friends on their large deck overlooking the bay. Tea-Dance goes from 4:00pm to 7:00pm but the crowd doesn’t start to appear until 5:00 or 5:30pm.
Either pre or post dinner we recommend our favorite bar, the Harbor Lounge, for a relaxing drink or two in their chill-out lounge overlooking the Ptown harbor. Barman Liam oversees a friendly establishment where both locals and visitors interact and have a great time up to their 11:00pm closing hour.
Then dance the night away at either the Atlantic House, better known as the A-House, or the Crown and Anchor. Not into dancing, then there are many bars catering to every interest from drag to leather.
Bars close early at 1:00am but for those still ready to party on, the local tradition is to congregate in front of Spiritus Pizza where the party continues.
