When we were in Istanbul a couple of years ago, we spent what seemed like hours hunting through the winding streets trying to find a gay bar. We had no idea that an experience like Club XLarge was hidden among the crowded streets. It is worth the adventure.

We first discovered Hula's Bar & Lei Stand several years ago when we were in Honolulu to support our friend in his impressive efforts to not only raise money, but also run his first marathon with the AIDS Marathon charity. We ended up spending a fair amount of our time at Hula's meeting great locals, chatting with the staff, and enjoying the beautiful views as we drank sitting along the expansive open front of the bar. There's no better gay bar in Honolulu.

June's featured bar of the month is a local favorite...literally one of our local favorites. The Hillcrest Brewing Company is walking (and crawling distance) from the I Heart Gay Bar offices in the gayborhood here in sunny San Diego. We here at IHGB are beer drinkers and were ecstatic when the country's first gay brewery opened 2 years ago down the street from us. In celebration of Pride month and the kick off of summer, we're so thrilled to feature the HBC as June's bar of the month. A shout out to all of our favorite staff members for the awesome service and fun attitudes (Matt, Margo, Ken, and so many more).

May's Bar of the Month is Paradise Bar and Restaurant, located on the Broadway Corridor in Long Beach. Pride season is here and Long Beach Pride is one of our favorite for its great parade, friendly atmosphere, beachside location and local area parties. Long Beach Pride is the weekend of May 16th. It's the perfect weekend to stop in and check out Paradise.

Friends is one of our absolute favorite dive bars catering to LGBT in the United States, so we are thrilled to help them celebrate their 10th anniversary this year by featuring them as April's Bar of the Month. If you live in the Atlanta area, you undoubtedly already know about this eclectic little watering hole just off the BeltLine on Ponce de Leon Avenue, but if you are visiting Atlanta, you should definitely make sure this spot is on your must-visit list. Congratulations Friends on 10 years of serving the community!
