Gay Miami

Beaches, Bars, Bodies


Gay Miami Miami Beach, South Beach, SoBe, or however you choose to call it is a major gay getaway, with a number of gay establishments around its famous Lincoln Road and Collins Avenue. Everything is thankfully within walking distance, with the gay beach running parallel to Collins. Perhaps the best part of coming here is for a trip to Key West, arguably even gayer. It's the southernmost point in the U.S. with a strong gay community which is a major player in the annual Fantasy Fest every October. Winter is actually a great time for a visit, as temperatures are still warm and you can always stay at the Island House Men Only Resort, and the ladies can always go on the Lesbian Champagne Sunset Cruise.
Walk down Duval Street in Key West between Fleming Street and Duval Square for a concentration of gay-friendly bars and restaurants.


PALACE - 1200 Ocean Drive, South Beach
For some gay atmosphere in the afternoon, head to the welcoming Palace on Ocean Drive. Grab a drink, have a snack, and stay for the evening when you'll see plenty of other tourists. The gay section of the beach is right ahead.

Crême
Located above the famous Score (see below), Crême is a lounge with leather sofas and soft lighting welcoming gay men of all ages. The music is also varied, usually a mixture of hip hop, house, and trance.

JADE LOUNGE - 1766 Bay Road, South Beach North
This two-level club known for a certain decadence. The crowded first floor is where all the action takes place, while the lounge and bar is for chilling out on the cushions, sofas, and beds.

Score
Well, from the name you know what this club is all about. It's an afternoon drink destination, but also a night time bar and club for men to meet other men. Stand at the bar that overlooks the dancefloor and watch one of Miami's most famous gay parties. This is Miami's gay hotspot.

Twist
This long running gay club has an outdoor lounge and a rooftop bar for when you wish to escape the crowded dancefloor. There's something going on every night of the week, and often, well-known guest DJs.

Aqua Key West
Key West's largest gay dance club always has a special party going on. It's open every day and there are happy hours every afternoon.

GAY-FRIENDLY RESTAURANTS


Balans
This is the place for a late afternoon or early evening drink. Gays make up a large percentage of the mix of people who fill the place. The staff also seems to be pretty gay, serving Asian or Mediterranean dishes throughout the day and drinks in the later hours.

Da Leo Tratorria
Sit outside and enjoy the sun and Tuscan/Italian specialties at this very gay-friendly hotspot right on Lincoln Road.

FOR LESBIANS


There isn't a major lesbian club in Miami, but there are a few fun night time parties for the ladies. To find out where they're at, check out the Icandee Productions and Pandora and Ultra Events websites.
