The Palace, a South Beach gay bar of legend, notoriety, debauchery, and giddy fun is closing its doors at its current Ocean Drive locale because its new landlord is renovating Palace's home of 20 years and wants the bar out. With an uncertain future ahead, the owners of Palace are currently looking for a new home.
Last weekend, in honor of the victims of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando, dozens of buildings around Miami and Miami Beach were lit up for the gay pride weekend. The Freedom Tower, Betsy Hotel, Miami Tower, and 1111 Lincoln Road, all showed their rainbow colors with great pride.
