For a Fiesta, Remember San Antonio

Deep in the heart of Texas, you’ll find cuisine, culture, and a little bit of camp.



LGBT Nightlife

San Antonio offers ample LGBT-centric places to party. Downtown is the Bonham Exchange (pictured above;; it’s a dance club in a historic building with daily drink specials and a weekly comedy contest. Farther afield, there’s a concentration of gay clubs along North Main Avenue. They include Heat (, a hopping video and dance club that also has drag shows; Sparky’s Pub (, with a mellow, British-style atmosphere; and Pegasus Nightclub (, four bars in one, with karaoke, video, leather, and country venues. A bit farther north, on Coachlight Street, is the new and popular SA Country Saloon (visit its Facebook page). These clubs all have a mostly gay clientele, but they’re welcoming to lesbians, trans and straight folks, and everyone else.
