Fodor's Expert Review Palace Bar

South Beach Bars/Pubs

South Beach’s gay heyday continues at this fierce oceanfront bar where folks both gay and straight come to revel in good times, cheap cocktails, and great drag performances. Everyone's welcome, and there's no formal dress code. So for many, Speedos, tank tops, and two-pieces will do. The bar gets busiest in the afternoon and early evening; it's not really a late-night place. For out-of-towners, the Sunday Funday drag brunch is a must. It's a true showstopper—or car-stopper, shall we say: using Ocean Drive as a stage, drag queens direct oncoming traffic with street-side splits and acrobatic tricks in heels.
