G/F has a series of bars and restaurants starting with the BAD.TW gay shop and ending with the busy Sol bar. Between these you have a dozen rainbow establishments. And don't overlook the venues on 2/F. It is mainly al fresco and can get cold and wet in the winter, so wrap up well if you visit then. Some of the bars have no toilets and this means a walk to public bathrooms. Lively most nights and packed on weekends. The partying runs into the wee hours.
