* ''TimeSquad'' had a robotic version of a gay bar on the season two episode, "Day of the Larrys." Yes, you read that right: a kids' show [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar had what was a pretty obvious depiction of a gay bar]] (though it was more disco than bar [there was a disco ball and disco music playing], the implications were still there).

* Averted in an episode of ''{{Roseanne}}'' in which the main character and her sister visit a lesbian bar with a gay friend. Most if not all of the patrons are regular people having a fun night out at a bar; Roseanne dances with her friend, and the one person who does hit on an uncomfortable Jackie is simply a conventionally attractive woman who sees Jackie sitting alone at the bar, and backs off without incident when told that Jackie isn't interested.

* Babylon in ''QueerAsFolk'' is one of the more well known examples, which follows every bit of this to a "T". Note: Babylon is this to a T for a reason - this was an accurate portrayal of gay life in Manchester at the time. Although this was most certainly not the case for the Americanized show set in Pittsburgh. The city's and the state of Pennsylvania's fairly strict regulations for bars and clubs would not allow anything like the fictional bar to stay open. This led to some very confused and depressed visitors. Not to mention that Pittsburgh's gay community would not be large enough to support a club the size of Babylon. To clarify, there's a very big difference between the two versions of Babylon; one simply being a huge (if flashy) club while the other had even set up at back room for the more intimate dancing and, from time to time, featured elaborate show and strippers. Male strippers of course.

* GayBarReveal 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.

* ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' had two gay bar appearances. They were relatively tame though, one suffering only from high-camp values, and the other having quite a lot of crossdressers, but otherwise mundane.

* ''Film/BellBookAndCandle'' has a scene in a bar that you don't realize is coded as a gay bar until about halfway through.
** That whole ''film'' can be seen this way, as can [[{{Series.Bewitched}} the tv show it inspired]].

* Surprisingly subverted in a first-season episode of ''{{Cheers}}''. Rumors of a growing number of gay patrons lead the regulars at Cheers to worry about it becoming a gay bar, with the obviously underlying but unspoken fear that it will turn into this trope. The episode ends with the revelation that several of the [[RecurringExtra long-term background patrons/extras]] are the feared gays, and that they've been there all along.

* There's an episode of ''WillAndGrace'' where the titular duo go into what Grace insists is a gay bar. Will isn't sure, until "I Will Survive" starts playing. The signature drink is the Penis Colossus.
* In an episode of ''{{Taxi}}'' Alex finds himself in a gay bar dancing with a man against his will and ends up disco dancing with all the patrons.
* ''TheWire'': the extremely homophobic Lamar is trying to track down {{Gayngster}} Omar Little by scouting out local gay bars. One of the gay bars he looks through features shirtless patrons, guys coming on to Lamar, a thumping bass track playing through the speakers and gay porn playing on the monitors.
