Despite Miami's rep for being one of the most gay-friendly cities in America (okay, we've got nothing on San Francisco, but we're still gayer than, say, Tuscaloosa), finding a good gay bar here can sometimes be a complicated dance. There are, of course, the usual haunts. The ones that have been around for decades, that everyone knows (even all our straight friends). Places like Score and Twist, both on South Beach and both with a reputation for being prime party spots for men who love men.
But if you're just visiting, or even if you just came out and want to finally check out a few LGBTQ-friendly spots, it can be difficult, especially if you're searching for something a bit...different. That's why 10Best has scoured its resources for info on all the best places for the queer men and ladies (and gender non-conforming) folks who just want to go out and get a drink with other folks with whom they might have more in common. Gay bars for men are definitely easier to find than lesbian bars (to the point that we felt the need to include events like Aqua Girl in order to have more for the ladies), but whatever your flavor, we've got something here for you.
