Mark's List's curator insight, August 14, 2013 4:29 PM

Score is located in the heart of South Beach, in the thriving and world famous promenade, Lincoln Road. For over a decade, Score has remained the quintessential, gay nightclub experience for both locals and visitors. No other club offers so many variables; people watch on their outdoor terrace while trying their potent frozen drinks or lounge in their ultra chic, modern lounge and chat with friends. Enthusiastic club revelers experience state of the art lights and sound as some of the world’s most renowned DJ’s visit and draw hundreds to the dance floor. Muscle boys, trendy fashionistas, Latinos and even polo clad boys, find their own niche among the other beautiful people.

 

 Score's art of reinvention has kept them relevant, which is a phenomenon in the transient world of the nightclub industry. Finding consistent and creative forms of entertainment is of the utmost importance. Having a courteous and attractive staff only enhances Score's appeal and keeps the locals loyal. Community is important to Score and so the club hosts yearly Winter Party, White Party and Miami Beach Gay Pride fundraising events; being part of the scene is being at Score!

Discotekka and Mekka are located in Miami's downtown entertainment district where beer, wine and liquor are legally served 24 hours a day. The nightclub features drag talent like Poison Ivy. The club is hosted by Milancita Rodriguez. Discotekka in downtown Miami is terrifically decorated, nicely lit and huge with a friendly staff — and that’s not always easy to find anymore. The patrons are generally young, attractive and not at all formal. The music is Latin house, classic house and hip hop and the drinks are fantastic. If you’ve never heard of a Blue Long Island Iced Tea, try one at Discotekka. This place is gay clubbing at its best.

Mark's List's curator insight, August 7, 2013 9:49 AM

Wilton Manors (affectionately referred to as WilMa) is a city within the larger city of Fort Lauderdale. Wilton Manors is home to one of America's largest year-round populations of Gay and Lesbian residents. Wilton Manors was the second city in the country (after West Hollywood, California) to elect a Gay-majority city council.

In the past decade downtown Wilton Manors has evolved into a nearly one mile long corridor of Gay and Lesbian owned, shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The main street, Wilton Drive, is closed several times a year for LGBT festivals and events that are sponsored by Mark's List. The larger of the events are Stonewall Street Festival in June and Wicked Manors, a Halloween event that attracts tens of thousands of costumed revelers from all over the world.

Broward County is home to over 4,100 restaurants and over 120 nightclubs (1/3 of them are Gay or Lesbian oriented). Several of the nightclubs are located in downtown Fort Lauderdale's Arts & Entertainment district, but most LGBT establishments are located in Wilton Manors, the "Gayborhood of South Florida."
