Bar Gaythering

The bar in Hotel Gaythering, the self-confessed gayest hotel in Miami Beach, is the best place in town to go for a more stylish night of cocktails. There's something going on pretty much every night of the week, from bingo and karaoke to “bears and hares Fridays”, and there are regular happy hours and drinks specials too. The bar serves craft cocktails and beers in an upscale space but at prices you'd expect from your neighbourhood pub.

Nathan's Beach Club

The place to go for a bit of nostalgia, Nathan's offers an experience that's truly unique within the South Florida gay scene. The space is safe and accepting of everyone, so you can sit back and relax into another world. 6 specially designed sections have themes including Stranger Things, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory, so pick your favourite! Alternatively, enjoy your drinks outdoor on one of the patio tables.


Founded in 1993, Twist is a must-visit destination in South Beach. It describes itself as “the hottest and longest running gay club in Miami”, bringing people together for a party on three huge dance floors across two levels in the heart of the gay scene. There's never a cover so you can visit at any time to meet the friendliest bartenders, most talented DJs, and the hottest dancers in the city.

On the Rocks Bar

Inside this dark and dingey bar you'll find a charming and truly Miami atmosphere. A quirky collection of lights and decorations hangs behind the bar, and the whole space is completed with wall art and statement pieces. It's designed to be homely, serving traditional beers as well as your favourite cocktails and classic American bar food. Drinks are affordable, there's always a game on the TV, and karaoke and bar games are not to be missed.


Palace is the first and only LGBTQ+ bar and restaurant on Ocean Drive, in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco district.

A host of talented drag queens keep the party going 7 nights a week, so kick back, relax, and enjoy a super camp show.

Azucar NightClub

The hub for LGBTQ+ Latin nightlife is Azucar, a place full of energy and great music.
