* One episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSVU'' had a rather awkward, painful version of this trope where it happened the day after going there. A male teenager who'd come in from out of town had told a taxi driver to take him to "the nearest bar" and wound up horrified when one of the regulars tried to pick him up. He started a bar fight and had to have it explained by the officers arresting him that he'd been dropped off at a gay bar.

* ''TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' - Fat Freddy goes home to Cleveland and stops for a drink in what he realizes is "a honky bar", inadvertently angers the blue-collar clientele, and gets booted out. He heads to what appears to be a young person's bar which is full of vicious bikers who beat him up. He staggers to a place called "The Gilded Lily" and thinks "Well, this looks like a nice clean place. At least I won't get assaulted here."

* The spinoff series ''TheClevelandShow'' has an episode where Cleveland and his friends accidentally go to a gay bar, oddly one of the "signs" is fat chicks. It's also where Cleveland discovers that his co-worker Terry is gay.

* ''FilthyRichAndCatflap'': Richie and Eddie enter a typical British pub looking for 'working class costermongers' to kill Richie's father for him. When they are unable to interest the two men at the bar in the job, they start insulting their bravery and masculinity with homophobic slurs, concluding:
--> '''Richie:''' ...Bloody fairies! That's what you are, isn't it?
--> '''Men at bar:''' Yes.
--> '''Landlord:''' This is a gay pub.
--> [Cut to Richie and Eddie being hurled out of the pub]
* An episode of ''{{Coach}}'' had this. The title coach (of American football; guess his attitude) ended up concerned that one of his players, Terry, was less than heterosexual. He ends up in a peaceful bar talking with the student, and everything is fine. A slow dance tune comes on, and two young people go to have a quiet dance on the floor behind Coach Fox. They have a gender in common... It's played surprisingly straight considering the premise of the show and the time it was made, and still managed to be funny. The bar patrons in the reveal are just regular guys, not an assortment of stereotypes. Coach Fox is uncomfortable with the situation, but not freaked out or horrified. He agrees to treat Terry like any other player on the team. For starters, a player in training is not allowed to stay out late, so Coach offers to drive Terry home. A couple of other players recognize Coach Fox leaving with the young man:
-->'''Players:''' Coach! What are you doing there?
-->'''Coach:''' ''(awkwardly)'' Oh...uh...I'm just taking Terry home. (Realizing how that sounds) Damn!
* Played straight on ''TheParkers.'' When Nikki and her friends investigate Professor Oglevee's shady new girlfriend, they track her to the bar where she works and comment on the lack of men there. When the bar's manager informs them that yes, the girl in question is gay and yes, it's a lesbian bar, Nikki and her friends act like it's the fifth level of Hell, though they do stick around for awhile.
* Parodied on the UK sketch show ''GoodnessGraciousMe''. Two underage boys want to be served drinks in a pub, so to look older, they wear glasses (and can't see a thing.) When they remove the glasses, they realize it's actually a gay bar full of VillagePeople lookalikes, and run away screaming.

* A version occurs in Creator/StephenKing's ''{{It}}'', where the landlord of a failing bar, the Falcon, is relieved when business picks up, in the form of quiet, youngish men who start patronizing his establishment. It takes him weeks to work out that his bar has become the unofficial gay bar of the town.

* In an episode of ''{{In Plain Sight}}''. While helping Mary clear one of her witnesses of a murder, Marshall visits the victim's favorite bar and talks with the bartender, who mentions that the victim always stood by his people. After wondering what that means, a confused Marshall looks around and realizes that all the patrons were male and many were holding hands...

* In the ''MurphyBrown'' episode "The Anchorman", Jim Dial fulfills his dream of opening a classy English-style pub, and it quickly becomes popular among the gay crowd. The trope is averted in that the customers are never shown as oversexualized leather daddies or weird crossdressers; Jim only realises what's happened when someone points out to him that all of his customers are men, and some of them are holding hands. Otherwise, it's just another spot where businessmen go to socialize after work.
