Edmonton Gay Bars and Nightclubs

 

The Junction - Closed


Buddy’s Night Club  http://www.buddysedmonton.com/

11725 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton.  Ph [780] 488-6636. 

Entrance to Buddies Night Club is off Jasper Avenue and is easy to find because of its bright rainbow flag above the door; parking is on the street and metered. The club is open 7days a week and from 9pm to 2am – 3am serves and has draught beer. The layout of the club is centred around the main bar with another small bar at the back. There are three pool tables, a small stage that is also a dance floor, a variety of Video games, TV monitors and an ATM if you run out of cash. There are plenty of seating throughout and reasonable amount of barstools, washrooms are clean and more that two. Entertainment is varied with plenty of fun promotions including male strippers and the bar staff are friendly and informative. The friendly clientele is mostly men with a young following and on the weekends quite a few straight women.

 

Woody’s Pub

11723 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton. Ph [780] 488-6557

Located above Buddys right on Jasper Avenue, Woodys Pub is a great spot to relax after work for a few drinks while watching the world rush by on the street below. Sometimes the atmosphere is quite smoky and this can be annoying. Woodys has a long run of happy hour prices before merging with Karaoke Sunday – Wednesday. Open 7 days/week at Noon

Accommodations

 

Northern Lights Bed and Breakfast

P.O. Box 515, Edmonton, Ab. T5J 2K1  Ph. [780] 483-1572  

Northern Lights B&B has been operating for several years and I have stayed many times and found the hosts friendly, informative and helpful. The house which is a single story is around 30 years old and is located not far from West Edmonton Mall. In the summer the outdoor swimming pool is available and is quite private and guests are welcome to be themselves. The guest rooms are comfortable though not large and either have ensuite bathroom or private bathroom, all rooms come with TV/VCR. Breakfasts are great and well presented.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Northern Lights B&B for your gay and lesbian accommodation while visiting Edmonton
