When Nathan Smith began formulating the idea for the eponymous Nathan’s Bar over 20 years ago, he had little idea of the huge success that his nightclub would find.

Today, the bar, which briefly closed for renovations, has reopened as Nathan's Beach Club and is one of Miami’s most popular, and a hub of consistently lively LGBTQ+ revelry. Featuring performances from local and international drag talent, the bar is a must-visit for any gay traveller in Miami seeking live shows.

The bar is incredibly inclusive and visitors will find a welcoming atmosphere that is diverse as it is raucous.
