Gramps Bar and Music

176 NW 24th St, Miami

Gramps Bar features tons of live entertainment: Karaoke, comedy shows, live music, and a bingo-drag hybrid show. There’s also a dance party hosted every last Thursday of the month called Double Stubble that’ll definitely get you up and on your feet. Ask the bartender for a Hula Girl or a Whiskey in The Garden and you won’t be disappointed. Or, you can opt for the beer and shot combo for $10.

Hotel Gaythering

1409 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach

The bar at Hotel Gaythering (one of the best LGBT bars in Miami, FL and the entire South Florida region) has repurposed vintage dental chairs and what seem like fireman poles. It may confuse you a bit, but it’s all part of the charm of this place. Get classic drinks like a gin and tonic or a mojito for $5 during happy hour, or beers like Miller Lite or Stella for $3, which runs from 5PM to 8PM. Come back for trivia night every Wednesday, or ‘90s music night on Thursdays.

Vagabond Hotel

7301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Looking to party it up poolside? On Sundays, The Vagabond Hotel hosts a pool party with cute bartenders and dancers galore. Local DJs like Lumin, that spin tunes to get you off your lounge chair and on your feet.

Jamboree Lounge

7005 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Jamboree Lounge is a LGBT-oriented dive bar in Miami. There’s no liquor, and it’s cash-only, but you will be able to get glasses of Pinot or a PBR for only $4. Stay long enough for the drag show they put on at 2am and you’ll be in for a real treat.


1057 Washington Ave, Miami Beach

No gathering in Miami would be complete without a trip to the legendary Twist. This place has been around for almost 20 years. There are seven bars on two floors, but start at the Tiki Bungalow bar or the Main Room, which has music blasting for the speakers for you to get down to the whole night. You could even check out the Garden Area on Sunday nights, where you get the chance to compete in the underwear contest for a cash prize of $100.

H.G Roosters

823 Belvedere Rd, West Palm Beach

H.G Roosters is a great neighborhood bar, and it’s even better if you love karaoke (which happens nightly). On Sundays you’ll find a barbecue on the patio starting at 5pm, then male dancers at 6pm. On Mondays there’s drag queen bingo, and on Saturdays you’ll find talent showcases. Get buckets of domestic beers like Miller Lite or Budweiser for only $7, and $3 Long Island Ice Teas on Saturdays.


1508 NE 4th Ave, Fort Lauderdale

Stiff drinks for $4, eye candy, and a friendly and spacious environment for people to enjoy the leather scene is what Ramrod offers. Events like Battle of the Bulge on Thursdays or Caged Hunks on Saturdays make this place all the more intriguing. The dance floor will have like-minded people looking for a good time, and the DJ will definitely make that happen.

J’s Bar

2780 Davie Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

The clientele at J’s Bar is so varied you probably won’t even notice it’s a gay bar initially. The entertainment ranges from  karaoke and the occasional live band on Thursdays to spoken word poetry on Fridays. There are also darts and plenty of pool tables to keep you entertained. 

G Spot Bar

G Spot Bar is one of the newer spots in South Florida to cater specifically to ladies.

There are two-for-one drink deals on Thursdays, in addition to karaoke, and always plenty of lemon drop shots to go around.

Rumors is a double whammy that serves up both great drinks and tasty food. The late-night menu features dishes like Southwestern egg rolls, crab fritters, or truffle fries, and more wings than you could ever hope for after a night out.
