Gramps in Wynwood hosts various karaoke nights to unleash your inner diva, as well as funky drag queen shows and gay-themed events on a weekly basis. Smack dab in the heart of Wynwood, the low-key facade and open terrace is a local favorite for beers and a good show.

2. Basement

Nightclub, Bar, American

A neon-lit ice-skating rink & bowling alley add to the perks found at this trendy nightclub. Located in the Edition Hotel, Basement also boasts a funky nightclub with special lighting and effects designed by the legendary Patrick Woodroffe. The club is seatless, however, so you’d better be prepared to dance.

3. Twist

Nightclub, American

The steamy nightclub in Miami Beach is the place to go for a hot night out with plenty of opportunities to meet someone new. Club Boi hosts various themed parties from “Naked” to “Pajama Lingerie” night, playing a mixture of music genres from Latin to hip-hop. (This spot is not for the timid.)
