Miami Beach’s LGBT Friendly Events and Hotspots

girls-460x460Miami Beach is among the most LGBT friendly cities in South Florida, frequently hosting events throughout the year and offering a number of restaurants and hotspots for men and women looking to experience an exhilarating night on the town. At the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, we encourage you to celebrate your individuality and experience the barrier island’s many attractions. Here are a few attractions and events to explore this weekend.

The recently renovated Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason Theater is always hosting some kind of show, whether it’s the latest platinum selling musical act or a famous comedian, you’re bound to find something worth watching. The theater itself features stylish décor and plenty of food and drinks to enjoy, which could mark the beginning of a great night out on the town with your partner.

If you’d like to enjoy a little sunbathing and work on your tan, Miami Beach is the perfect spot for you. Although every beach in this city has an incomparable beauty and is each equally enjoyable, there is a popular LGBT friendly beach located on 12th Street. Make some new friends and then enjoy a meal at one of the several restaurants located near the sun-kissed sands.

Once the evening comes, you can visit the Palace and Basement Miami for drinks and dancing, respectively. The Palace in South Beach is a gay bar famous for its delicious burgers. If you decide to visit at an earlier time on Sunday, you can experience “Brunchic”, a fusion of brunch with a highly entertaining drag show. As for Basement Miami, it’s a club experience unlike any other, boasting an ice skating rink and a bowling alley in addition to its dance club, which will bring you back to the days of Studio 54 but with a cutting edge sound system that will make you want to dance all night long.
