Gay Clubs, Parties and Events in Milan

Keep in mind that some of the clubs and parties in Milan have closed in summer, some only in August, some from mid-June to mid-September.

Some gay partys and clubs in Milan require a membership card. Often that is the ARCO (Anddos) card. If you don't have an ARCO card yet, you can usually acquire it at the entrance of the venues that require the card. (5 € for three months, 17 € for one year.) When you acquire the card you need to show your photo ID, after that you only need the membership card.

Important note: Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, many places are closed or opening hours may have changed. Please check the websites and Facebook pages of the respective venues for the latest information.

Update October 2020: From 22 October, Milan will have a curfew from 23:00 to 05:00.
