When the sun goes down in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, the night lights up with entertainment, bars and other venues. Kick back and relax or dance the night away—the choice is yours. Gay-friendly destinations range from hipster havens to drinking dives and offerings include everything from cocktails and high-end cuisine to jukeboxes, pool and drag shows. Most LGBTQ+ nightspots are concentrated west of downtown in the Grand Central District, but others can be found in the beach communities and nearby cities of Clearwater and DunedIn. Expect to find a full range of ages, styles and orientations.
