Today, the bar is one of Miami’s most popular, and a hub of consistently lively LGBTQ+ revelry.

A veteran of Twist, Miami’s longest-lived gay bar, Smith infused Nathan’s with his love of popular culture, including sitting areas themed after TV shows like Friends, The Brady Bunch, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Nathan’s offers six themed micro table sections plus a small amount of terrace seating, creating a pub that is as eclectic as it is rowdy. The bar is long, narrow, atmosphere that is diverse as it is raucous. Featuring performances from local and international drag talent, the bar is a must-visit for any gay traveller in Miami seeking live shows, for fun creates the perfect party atmosphere.

Nathan’s cozy, relaxed atmosphere is a welcome complement to Miami Beach’s nightlife culture, which is driven by spectacle and opulence.
