TWIST is the longest running gay club in Miami - and has become a South Beach "must do" as it has continously redefined its concept for 18 years.




TWIST is the infamous South Beach gay club, known throughout the world for its great music, friendly staff, and always being packed with hot tourists and locals alike. TWIST is actually seven bars in one with each bar having its own unique atmosphere and décor. You can literally "bar hop" without ever leaving this two story club. TWIST is open seven days a week from 1pm to 5am. Its motto is its mantra - Never a Cover - Always a Groove. Its reputation as a "must do" when in Miami is well deserved.

The first bar that you encounter when entering TWIST is the "Video Pub" which artfully combines an English gentlemen's club décor with the audio and visual of current music video. Then outside enter a quieter "Garden" area with plantings, mood lighting and a bar that features tropical drinks. Step just off this garden and into the tiki, tropical "Bungalow Bar", which is best known for "Gaiety", a collection of erotic men dancing for your pleasure. On upstairs the ocean breezes flow through the veranda style "Patio Bar" As the night thickens past midnight, the size of the crowd is growing in equal proportion to its intensity. The "Main Room" DJ is setting the bass and the beat to cutting edge tribal house rhythms.  Next door in the more upscale (but equally) packed "Frolic Lounge" take in a short show or step back and observe the latest pop video's on over a dozen screens.  Then head back downstairs and into BarFive for hot Salsa and Latino beat.

TWIST is located in the popular Washington Avenue nightlife district in the heart of South Beach (which is the southern portion of the city of Miami Beach). It is next door the authentic 11th Street Diner at 1057 Washington Ave. It is two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and the popular 12th street "gay" Beach. The club is within easy walking distance of major hotels, shopping and restaurants and sits in the middle of the city's "National Art Deco Historical District." Miami Beach is gay friendly and the South Beach portion of the city is home to a large gay population. As required by ordinance, entry to TWIST is limited to ages 21 and over.

TWIST is staffed with personable and attractive professionals that truly understand customer service and care about your satisfaction. TWIST continues to embody the same innovative ideals as envisioned in 1993 by founding partner Richard Trainor. Outstanding DJs, hot dancers, friendly bartenders and outrageous female impersonators, combine with thousands of loyal and first-time customers to make TWIST a "must do" every night out on South Beach. For the last two decades, TWIST has regularly updated its concept to become known throughout the world as the club to be at in South Beach. Never a cover, always a groove… only at TWIST!
