Gay Daddies on Vacation: Las Vegas

December 6, 2013

In the new movie Last Vegas, Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline prove that having a blast in that rollicking, high-rolling town isn’t just a young man’s game. In fact, we enjoyed watching those four silver-screen silver foxes celebrating in Sin City so much that it got our devilish daddy selves itching to book our own trip. But what’s a daddy to do in the 702? Turns out plenty! Here’s just a few daddy-approved points of interest we’re adding to our itinerary.

Leave those overcrowded hotels on the strip behind and feel at home at Blue Moon Resort! This three-floor, all-gay destination boasts modern accommodations and plenty of great amenities, including a lagoon-style pool, multiple sundecks, a private Jacuzzi grotto, complimentary breakfast, free WiFi, and more. No wonder it’s received a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor the last two years running and been voted the best place in Vegas for gay men to hang out. Owner John Hessling also deals out a number of special events throughout the year, including the Las Vegas Gay Sports Festival (January), Big Horn Rodeo (May), Lucky Bear Weekend (September), and their popular weekly Boys and Burgers party (Sundays, April through October).

Sure, the abundance of all-you-can-eat establishments might be one of LV’s biggest attractions, but if you’re a true foodie, step away from the buffet and book a reservation at Mingo Kitchen & Lounge. Located in the burgeoning Arts District of downtown Las Vegas, this LGBT-owned restaurant serves up a menu full of naughty but very nice dinner favorites seven days a week. Be sure to grab one of their risqué signature cocktails—anyone care for a Jack My D?—at the smoke-free bar before settling into one of the comfy booths for a truly decadent dining experience.

There are a lot of reasons Las Vegas has become one of the top destinations in the country for LGBT travelers, not the least of which is the jackpot of bars and nightclubs that cater to gay men of all ages and interests. If you’re into younger guys and muscle studs, you’ll definitely want to check out hotspots like Piranha  and its next-door neighbor, 8 ½ Ultra Lounge, which get the party started wild-child crowds and bartops full of go-go boys. Looking to for a slightly more relaxed atmosphere? Place your bets at Charlie’s Las Vegas, a local cowboy bar where you're sure to find fun, friendly guys dancing the two-step and cold, frothy beer on tap 24/7. More of a leather and Levi’s kinda guy? Head for the Fun Hog Ranch, where happy hours are extra frisky and fetish wear is strongly encouraged.

Still have some party left in you? Check out these recommendations from some of our Las Vegas members!

See y'all at SMOKEOUT 2014!

Damn! Just this minute got home from Vegas and this is what I find when I get here? Talk about poor timing. Thanks for the ideas--will remember them for my next trip.


There are more than one world class gay bathouses there also. Woof! Be safe.

I'll be moving to Vegas next year!
Thank goodness there's more gay life there than I expected.
