The rest&nbsp;are straight female hangers-on though the management claim lesbians show up on occasion. Loud and proud, you might find your ears ringing when you leave.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Bars__Clubs/11644/Sobear.html"><strong><span>Sobear</span></strong></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>A dedicated, niche gay bar, Sobear mostly attracts a male crowd though lesbians also drop by in smaller numbers. The &lsquo;bear&rsquo; in the bar&rsquo;s name gives a clue as to the demographic of this hotspot&rsquo;s honey-seekers.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Thursday offers KTV night&nbsp;and on weekends DJ Pony (also the bar owner) plays house and electronica.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Clubs/9398/Alfa.html"><strong><span>Alfa</span></strong> </a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>This gay-friendly bar boasts a stylish main area furnished with tables positioned over pools of water and separated by a screen or curtain. The bar gets very busy on Fridays, Alfa&rsquo;s regular gay night, as does the dance floor. The gay night attracts a mixed&nbsp;crowd but, again, men are in the majority.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Look out for Alfa&rsquo;s one-off gay nights, including events aimed at lesbians.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Bars__Clubs/12266/Mesh.html"><strong><span>Mesh</span></strong></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>A chilled-out lounge bar that welcomes all, Mesh boasts a&nbsp;stylish&nbsp;gay night&nbsp;every&nbsp;Thursday. Men and women&nbsp;turn up&nbsp;for fruity martinis and sophisticated company.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Food__Drink-South_American/9603/Terra.html"><strong><span>Terra</span></strong></a></div> <div><strong></strong>&nbsp;</div> <div>Terra is a restaurant rather&nbsp;than&nbsp;dedicated bar. Fridays see an LGBT night, PINK,&nbsp;drawing in&nbsp;a mixed crowd of trendy gays and gay-friendlies, however.&nbsp;With electro beats, jazz and a variety of other international tunes, their daily happy hour (5-7pm and 10pm-midnight) also applies on PINK nights.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Bars__Clubs/13458/The-Lala-Salon-Activity-Centre.html"><strong><span>The Lala Salon Activity Centre</span></strong></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Not actually a bar, this community&nbsp;centre offers an oasis for&nbsp;lesbians&nbsp;to get away from gay events teeming with testosterone (though people of any sexual leaning are welcome). There is a small bar offering limited free wine and tea &ndash; though visitors are encouraged to bring their own. The centre hold regular talks and social activities, including cooking salons and an English corner.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Karaoke/KTV/13459/Jujiao-Yanyi-Bar.html"><strong><span>Jujiao Yanyi Bar </span></strong></a><br /><br /></div> <div>Located on the first basement floor of the Golden Sun Hotel, this gay bar is very much for the (male) locals with loud KTV, the smell of popcorn and drag queens&rsquo; perfume filling the air. Drag shows are on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10pm. Wednesday afternoons see 'U-bear' parties for the heavily set from 2-6pm.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><br /><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Bars__Clubs-Bars__Clubs/13473/Share-Club.html"><strong><span>Share Club</span></strong></a><br /><br />Opened in September 2011 in the landmark Zhongyu Plaza, Share Club boasts an outdoor patio area for conversation and an an escape from the dance tunes inside.<br /><br /></div> <div><a href="http://www.timeoutbeijing.com/venue/Food__Drink-Cafes__Teahouses/12068/Vinyl-Caf%C3%A9.html"><strong><span>Vinyl Caf&eacute;</span></strong></a></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Striking for its tell-tale rainbow shop sign, Vinyl Caf&eacute; is a large, well-kempt space. The theme fits the name with framed album covers dotting the walls - there&rsquo;s Queen&rsquo;s Greatest Hits, Leon Russell, Spanky and the Gang (for real!) and other funky, big-hair seventies music greats.</div>
