Guatemala City’s small gay scene is mostly underground and concentrated around a few (almost entirely male) venues; “in” places change quickly: consult w gayguatemala.com for the latest info. After parties are frequent after the 1am curfew.

Black and White

11 C 2–54, Zona 1 w blackandwhitebar.com; map. In the heart of the city since 2006, this bar-club is an intimate space with classy decor and attracts a lively crowd with themed nights, go-go dancers and strippers. Wed–Sat 7pm–1am.

Eclipse

13 Av 4–39, Zona 1; map. A long running gay club where DJs spin house and latin music. Arrive early and the happy hour all-you-can-down drinks specials (US$6) certainly get the party started. Thurs–Sat from 7pm.

Genetic

Vía 3 & Ruta 3, Zona 4; map. This is the city’s largest (mainly) gay club with three floors and a VIP section, and plays pumping trance and house music. There are themed nights and go-go dancers. Thurs–Sat.
