Dresden Nightlife, Music, and Gay Scene

From: Dresden, Germany

Kneipenviertel Weisse Gasse

As people who who equate "nightlife" with "Netflix," we're hardly qualified to comment at length on what Dresdners do after dark. Instead, we'll defer to the Dresden tourist office:

"A sheer endless diversity of clubs, events, and locations have contributed to the fantastic reputation of the Dresden party scene. Whether house and electro, or R&B, soul and hip-hop, whether dance, rock and pop, Gothic, or even mainstream evergreens, every conceivable musical direction has its own permanent place."

Gay scene

The Dresden tourist office reports that "In Dresden, the gay life blends quite naturally and unobtrusively into the general nightlife of the city. The subculture is best explored on a tour through the Neustadt quarter."
