ABOUT LAS VEGAS LGBTQ Las Vegas For a city that bills itself as the nation’s adult playground, the Las Vegas gay scene has a surprisingly small-town feel. There are a number of fun gay bars and clubs here for all types. While bars are sprinkled throughout the city, there are mainly two groupings. The “Fruit Loop” on Paradise is basically a collection of three strip malls around gay bars and a bookstore. The Commercial Center off Sahara is a little more rough around the edges. Attached to Planet Hollywood Casino is Krave, the only gay club on the strip.
