Gay Life in Malmo Sweden

There seem to be few places on this planet that someone on this board has not visited. I'm hoping that someone can give me some suggestions on gay life in Malmo.

Most of the standard guidebooks, and even some of the Swedish gay web sites, suggest that most people go across the Oresund Bridge to Copenhagen. That's probably true, and I'll do that a couple of times.

But my trip in November will be semi-business. I'll be dining with straight friends and/or business associates most nights. The 45-minute-plus trip each way makes little sense when I'm just looking for a couple of hours of socializing. There's bound to be something in Malmo, just like there are pleasant places in Chicago's suburbs.

Sorry to say that there is not much in Malmo. There is a club called The Wonk, which I believe is only open on Saturdays: http://www.wonk.se/

I looked into it once, but did not wind up going. I will ask my friend in CPH if he has any insight.

There are a few other clubs listed in other places, but not sure how accurate the info is:

- SLM Malmö, Ystadsgatan 13 (fetish club Saturdays and Wednesday or Friday)
- G-bar at Mando, Skomakaregatan 2 (mixed bar Wednesdays)

Even though Sweden is very accepting, there is a small gay scene, even in Stockholm. The gay folks have largely assimilated into the mainstream...

Not sure how up to date it is (it has been a few years since I lived in Sweden), but qx gaymap at least used to be quite comprehensive http://www.qx.se/gaymap/?country=185&city=50

Follow up to my last post, my friend in CPH confirms that The Wonk is still going and is a fun place if you want a night out.
