Gay Lille

Lille, Nord-Pas-de-Calais

Lille, France.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Lille is France's fourth largest city and boasts a sizable gay scene just two hours from London. The city is steeped in history from real-life musketeer d'Artagnan to General de Gaulle and from Louis Pasteur to the Battle Fields of Flanders. It houses a library and research institute called GKC for the study of gender pluralism and currently 42% of Lille's population is under 25, so if you're over thirty you're in a minority!

Lille has a good selection of gay and gay friendly hotels, inns, guesthouses and traditional bed and breakfast accommodations. Prices and amenities vary from budget to deluxe so there is plenty of choice for even the most discerning gay and lesbian traveler.

Just a ten minute walk from the Gare-Lille Europe, where Eurostar glides in, Lille's beautiful Grand Place. Then it's just another five minute jaunt north into the Vieux Lille, the Old Town, and the gay cluster around the rue Royale and the rue de la Barre.

Lille has a vibrant gay scene including restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. Good food and wine are synonymous with Lille, the reason why the city is a magnet for gay and lesbian lovers of fine cuisine. Amongst the many culinary specialties three stand out, Carbonnade flamande (small chunks of beef stewed in beer), waterzoï (poultry or fish in a creamy sauce, served with baby vegetables) and potjevleesch (literally “small potted meat”, a white meat terrine in aspic). There’s also rabbit with prunes for lovers of sweet-and-savory dishes, and the famous “moules-frites” (mussels and chips).

All of Lille's gay bars are extremely friendly, and that goes for both staff and patrons. Most have a long bar and DJ decks which stretch back from the entrance towards an extra upper loft area for drinking and gazing down on the main action below.

With its narrow, cobblestone streets lined with lovely Flemish houses, Old Lille is the ideal place for gay and lesbian shoppers to find the great names in luxury goods, fashion and design. There are plenty of antiques shops and art galleries and a pleasant market on the Place du Concert every Sunday morning.

So for a gay friendly destination with style, culture and fine cuisine, Lille, on the French/Flemish border has much to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
