On Thursdays, the spotlight turns to some of Miami’s fiercest drag performers at laidback Wynwood watering hole, Gramps. From well-seasoned mainstays to emerging talent and more experimental characters, these eclectic queens serve. The always vivacious Karla Croqueta hosts while resident DJs Hottpants, Mystic Bill and Zehno keep the bodies moving in between sets at this well-attended, free weekly party.


This monthly gay party at Shelter Wynwood recently celebrated its 15th edition. As the name suggests, music is the highlight at these scene-y dance parties in an industrial lodge-style space where you’re likely to run into every Miami gay you’ve ever met. Mike Trotter, Camila di Marzo and Discofuturo are a few of the DJs who regularly grace the decks. 10 NE 27th St

As the self-proclaimed “gayest bar in Miami Beach,” this hotel watering hole regularly hosts packed events like karaoke, Pictionary and bingo. Set in an intimate, rustic space not unlike a boy scout camp cabin, the vibe here is friendly and frisky, with a healthy mix of locals and out-of-towners.
