the hottest and longest running gay club in Miami.
a South Beach "must do" as it has continuously redefined
its concept for 29 years!
TWIST was founded in 1993 by Richard Trainor as a friendly and welcoming environment where people from around the world could meet and have a great time. From its first day, appreciation of the customer and exceptional service has been central to TWIST’s concept. Professional bartenders, world class DJ’s and the absolute hottest dancers you’ll find anywhere make TWIST a ”must do” in South Beach. TWIST’s motto is its mantra - Never a Cover - Always a Groove, means just that. TWIST never charges a cover while offering two levels of entertainment indoors and out, three dance floors and the absolute best time you’ll have on South Beach. But, it truly is our loyal locals and international tourists that make TWIST unique and always happening. Without them, TWIST would not have received awards as the best gay bar in South Florida, year after year for the last quarter century.
Right next door the authentic 11th Street Diner at 1057 Washington Ave.
We’re also two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and the popular 12th street "gay" Beach. TWIST 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.
Outstanding DJs, hot dancers, friendly bartenders and outrageous female impersonators, combined 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.
