Miami Beach LGBT Hot Spots

September 02, 2016

Whether you can recall the days of Birdcage camp, or showing off your hairless ripped body on 12th Street’s gay beach is more your style, there are endless things to do in Miami for local and visiting gays when the sun goes down.

The main gay beach is on Ocean Drive at the end of 12th Street. You can't miss the rainbow flag high above the white sand. Nude sunbathing is only allowed at Haulover Beach, north of Miami Beach. It will take you half an hour to get there by car, but it is worth it.

South Beach has an interesting and happening gay nightlife for those who spend a long weekend. Some bars have themed nights every day and gay (friendly) parties happen frequently at some specific nights at one of the normally straight clubs. And be sure you look at your best...

Here are some of the best Miami Beach gay clubs:

Palace Bar at 1200 Ocean Drive

Palace is the only gay bar on Ocean Drive and located very close to the gay beach. It opens in the morning for late breakfast or lunch, and later serving after beach cocktails. This place is usually very popular.


While some gay clubs have come and gone, Twist remains the place for any gay man in town to end his night. It features two levels and seven bars that way you'll be sure to never get bored. Also, don't forget to stop at the back Bungalow Bar to experience the go-go boys with dark skin and bulging pecs! As they say at Twist: ”Never a cover, always a groove!"

Score Club

When people ask you about gay clubs in Miami, the very first one they'll mention is Score. The drinks are a bit pricier than you'd like, and you might not always be happy about paying a cover, but a night at Score is almost always worth it. You'll have an experience unlike any other in the Magic City, and more importantly, you'll have plenty of new stories to tell. Party people from near and far come to this for-the-boys nightclub. Score is located on Espanola Way and Washington Avenue just across the Street from El Paseo Hotel!!

Bar at Hotel Gaythering

If you are looking for a laid-back bar with delicious and well-crafted cocktails you will definitely find them at the Bar at Hotel Gaythering. This bar also offers a wide selection of quality craft beers as well as themed nights to add a little extra to your bar-going experience. Wednesday nights is trivia night, enjoy 90s tunes on Thursday evenings, and find your share of bears on Fridays for Bears and Hares night.
