An LGBTQ+ party every single night of the week.

It can be almost impossible to choose where to go first, but there is no doubt you will find the perfect experience for every night of the week. Here is a little tour of some of the most enticing gay and gay-friendly bars and nightclubs in Miami.

Get your groove on at Twist


Twist, known as the one of the best gay clubs in South Beach for many years, attracts loyal locals and international tourists. Located on Washington Avenue, their motto is their mantra, "Never a cover, always a groove, 7 nights a week, every week of the year". This Sobe staple is home to 7 different bars, each with its own different feel so you'll never get bored. Add in friendly bartenders, world-class DJs spinning blistering beats and some of the hottest dancers around and it makes Twist a go-to for at least one of your weekly nights out, if not more.

Come as you are for craft cocktails & fun

Bar Gaythering

When it comes to gay bars, don't even think of passing up the opportunity to check out Bar Gaythering located inside the Gaythering Hotel, just two blocks from Lincoln Road. Hang out at one of Yelp! 2017's top 10 gay bars in the United States while enjoying meticulously crafted (and very reasonably priced at only $11) cocktails like the "Milton Coupe" or " Alexander Beaverhausen" in either your swankiest or in beach shorts - you decide. There's something different going on every night of the week, from Karaoke Monday's hosted by Fantasia to Bears & Hares Fridays @ Gaythering. You will have to join in to appreciate it all.

Live drag queen fun at The Palace

The Palace

Now with a lot more outdoor seating for even larger crowds and a beautiful indoor bar and lounge you will have to make your way to the edge of the beach to spend an evening on Ocean Drive because as they say, every Queen needs a palace and this is it. World-renowned for its live drag shows, The Palace is the veteran establishment of the Miami LGBTQ+ community. Don't miss out on this night of entertainment and their renown weekend drag show brunch that will cure any Twist related hangover you may have.

Dance all night with the DJ's at Gramps


If you decide to make your way to the colorful Wynwood Arts District, Gramps is a gay-friendly and hip Wynwood dance spot to enjoy delicious local beers and fantastic cocktails. They play a variety of music ranging from rock to EDM. You can sit inside with the cranking AC or you can enjoy the natural breeze outside on the patio on a cooler night.

So many talented drag divas at RHouse


Every Sunday, RHouse holds its famous Drag Brunch hosted by Athena Dion named "Miss Ultimate Miami Drag Queen 2017" with performances by some of Miami's most talented drag divas. With a variety of brunch packages, you can choose to feast on not only a magnificent show but their brilliant brunch menu with optional bottomless mimosas or sangria – oh, who are we kidding – bottomless anything is a necessity!

Casual vibes at gay-friendly Wood Tavern

Wood Tavern & Brick

A few other gay-friendly places to note near Wynwood Walls are Wood Tavern and Brick. These two are notorious gathering grounds for the LGBTQ+ community because they are a safe-haven to party and enjoy a drink or two. Next to Wood Tavern (and created by the same owner) is the Miami Mojito Company Pop-up. This place is a real hidden gem — a tiny tiki hut that only serves mojitos. You'll feel like you're at a beach bar instead of the heart of Wynwood art central as you sip a classic, passion fruit, tamarindo, blackberry or raspberry mojito, all made with fresh squeezed sugar cane (guarapo). Insider Tip: Many events in Miami have cover charges but you can always get in contact with a promoter. Humans Alike is a group of people who help promote upcoming events at Heart Nightclub and provide promotional codes to save money on the events. Who doesn’t want to save a few extra bucks? Don’t forget that most clubs have dress codes; make sure to call to find out and remember, always dress to impress.
