Pro Shop Pub
840 Cleveland Street
Tel: FL (727)447-4259
A Clearwater Institution. Located in downtown Clearwater,
Pro Shop, where you can always find a friendly face, is
the oldest and most known bar in Pinellas County. Friendly
bar tenders pour generous drinks to a consistently small
crowd of chatty regulars and the daily random stranger.
Small bar with pool table and Juke Box.
Fort Lauderdale has more
nice places for mature men and their admirers than any
other gay resort. It doesn't have the frenetic atmosphere
of Miami and is generally more upmarket and relaxed. Excellent
gay hotels and a nice selection of gay and non-gay resturants
make it the Grayde Award winning resort for the US region.
Most of the Gay Guest Houses
are near the beach between Los Olas and Sunrise boulevards
but the gay bars and restaurants tend to be spread around
the ctiy - although a number are concentrated in the Wilton
Manors area. For this reason, having a car is a big asset
if you are planning to stay near the beach. If you don't
have a car, consider staying in the Wilton Manors area
to be nearer the bars.

in-room electronic safes and luxury lines, robes and towels
-- along with marble baths and lots of tile. Guests have

A nice restaurant and piano bar which attracts the older
crowd and admirers. Does start to get business earlier
in the evening from 4:30 - 5:00 PM. It had a major refit
over the last few years and expanded into the next property
and is much improved as a result. Excellent piano bar
and a huge fishtank add to the ambiance. The daily lunch
buffet is a great deal (and good quality); nightly dinner
specials also make this an affordable alternative for
locals and tourists alike. The drinks are affordable and
a full pour.

Key west was THE
gay mecca for those seeking some winter sun but over recent
years this has been changing . Faced with the onslaught
of thousands of cheap cruises dumping their load of equally
cheap straight tourists, a number of gay business have gone
and the character of the place has changed.
