Successfully finding a gay club in an unfamiliar city can be trying. That's why 10Best has sought out the top candidates in Tampa, detailing their clientele, music, and atmosphere. Many of the top options are located in Tampa's GaYBOR district, a section of historic Ybor City where many businesses friendly to the LGBT community are located. There are also a smattering of bars and lounges in other locations throughout the Tampa Bay area.
To tap into one of the most popular clubs in the area head to the Honey Pot. The spacious dance floor features a premium light show and sound system to strut your stuff. Featuring Steam Fridays with drag shows for the men and Tease Saturdays that cater to women, there is something for everyone. Frequently host to special events and great guest DJs.
If you're for somewhere a little more upscale and laid back, check out the City Side Lounge in South Tampa. Catering to a slightly older, professional crowd, City Side features a main bar, sports bar and outdoor patio area for lounging with modern and contemporary decor. There is also a games area with pool, darts and arcade games.
