Craig disclosed that men in other bars usually get into fights when they see him in a bid to prove points hence his decision to chill out in gay bars where it is more calm.
"I've been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember. And one of the reasons - because I don't get into fights in gay bars that often. I just got very sick of [it], as a kid, because it was like I just don't want to end up being in a punch up. And I did, that would happen quite a lot." the actor revealed.
Speaking in an interview with Bruce Bozzi on his SiriusXM podcast, Lunch With Bruce podcast, Craig, 53, said he felt gay bars would be a good and safe space for him to go to.
"Everybody was chilled. Everybody, you didn't really sort of have to state your sexuality, it was okay. And it was a very safe place to be," Craig added.
Apart from just the peace that came with gay bars, Craig said he enjoyed visiting the sites because he could ''flirt'' with women frequenting the gay bars who were there for the same reasons he was there for.
"I could meet girls there because a lot of girls were there for exactly the same reason I was there. So I was, there was kind of, you know, there was an ulterior motive," Craig noted.
This, however, came quite as a surprise to many who know him as a married man who is indebted to actress Rachel Weisz whom he married since 2011.

In an earlier report filed by YEN.com.gh, the actor who appeared on the Apple TV documentary Being James Bond, disclosed the impact that taking up the huge role had on his personal life.
According to Daniel, who took up the 007 franchise role in 2005, he first went to the internet to check for the reactions of fans to him being named as the next secret service agent.
He said he found it tough because he read nearly everything, and it was filled with a lot of hate, but he knew that the film would be a hit.
The thespian said the fame that came with it affected his personal life, and he ended up locking himself in the house and drawing all the curtains to avoid publicity.
He said he was "physically and mentally under siege" because he did not like the newfound level of fame.
Daniel said X-Men actor Hugh Jackman was integral in helping him come to terms with his new celebrity status, adding he did not feel "cool enough" for the role.
