Reddit users list the names they’d give a gay bar, and puns abound

Gay bar

We can never have enough gay bars in the world, and any would-be proprietors out there could consult Reddit users’ list of names for gay-male-friendly establishments.

The users submitted their punny bar name ideas in a recent thread in the r/AskGayMen subreddit after one Redditor asked, “If you could name a Gay Bar, what would you name it?”

Here are just some of the 150-plus comments:

  • Bangers
  • Beards on Tap
  • Bears on Tap
  • Better Bones Bar
  • Bottoms Up
  • Buddies
