Ten Best Gay Bars in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach

2. The Manor Complex
2345 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors

If you just got some new shoes and want to dance with your "girls," there's pretty much only one option in Broward: the Manor. This dance club and restaurant is gigantic. There's a smaller room  for hip-hop on some nights and salsa on others. In the main room, there's traditional dance music with shirtless men dancing and singing in sync to some Rihanna song, and everyone looks happy and determined to get laid. More than at Ramrod, these people are dtf, if you know what we mean.

If you don't feel like dancing, you can always crash at the smaller lounge area that serves craft beers and ciders, in case some customers wander over from Gaysha.

1. Rosie's
2449 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors

Sunday Brunch to a gay is like Sunday Mass for Catholics. And if you get there too late, your seat at your friend's table is gone, and the next time you try to tag along, you'll get a neurotic: "You can't sit with us."

Rosie's brunch happens to be the best of the best -- although their regular menu served daily isn't anything to turn your nose up to either -- gay or straight. Their bloody marys are also unbeatable, and for $3, you really can't say no.

The bar advertises itself as "the place to see and be seen." So don't drink too much on Saturday night at the Manor. You wanna look good when being seen.
