It then became an indie-film theater, and in the early 1990s, the dark, underground (figuratively and literally - it's in a basement) space became a quite popular gay adult theater and sex club. More recently, it's been closed at different times, but it was spruced up at one point and now continues to be a gay sex club. Page 6.

The Unicorn has long been known for its significant selection of blue movies as well as its private video booths. It's a bit sleazier in feel than its 8th Avenue neighbors, which can be good or bad depending on your outlook. Page 45.

Discovering St. Petersburg's Stunning Sunset...
It takes a little effort to find it, but the gay beach on Treasure Island in greater St. Petersburg is one of the loveliest stretches of sand in the region. Years ago a gay nightclub along the beach, called Bedrocks, drew revelers to this narrow spot backed by dunes. The club closed eons ago, but this area now generally known as Sunset Beach remains popular with gay guys and lesbians, especially on weekend afternoons. Here's how to reach this beautiful spot.

Blue Store, a sex-toy and erotica shop on 8th...
Another of Chelsea's rather garish sex-toy and porn stores, the Blue Store (206 8th Ave.) has garnered its share of bad press since it opened nearly a decade ago, first stirring the ire of neighbors who complained about its relentless blue-neon facade and the neighborhood's seeming excess of such establishments. Then a couple of years ago cops shuttered the place for following a prostitution sting. The store has cleaned up its act some and is now a great source of gay erotica, lube, and such. Page 17.
Max's Private Club, a gym and gay bathhouse on...
If you're looking for a sure-fire gay hookup in Honolulu, your best bet is Max's, a private club set on the upper level (4th floor) of an innocuous plaza of shops and offices in western Waikiki, near Ala Wai Canal and Ala Moana shopping mall. Max's has two distinct parts, a well-equipped gym that caters pretty much exclusively to gay men, and a separate bathhouse/sex club that has the usual array of video channels airing gay porn, private cabins, and steam room and sauna.

Phoenix gay bar, East 13th Street (just off...
If the East Village has an all-around, much-loved, go-to gay bar, it's the Phoenix, which opened a few years back and takes its name from the long-ago Phoenix gay bar that used to be a few blocks away and was never anywhere near as popular. Part of the bar's lure is that it's relatively large as EV gay bars go, with a main bar area (pictured here), a pool table in back, decent-size bathrooms down a flight of stairs, and a small conversation nook around the corner from the main bar. Page 8.

The Cabaret, Pensacola, Florida
Although by no means strictly a gay bar, the charming and friendly Cabaret is very much a fixture in Pensacola's GLBT community, drawing a mixed bunch each evening for happy hour, karaoke, videos, comedy shows, live music, and all-around hobnobbing and socializing. The warmly decorated bar is in one of the city's most historic areas, a short walk northwest of historic Seville Square's lively restaurants and cafes, and right next to the famed Saenger Theatre.

No matter what time of year you visit Pensacola, the long-running (and recently remodeled) nightclub Emerald City is the premier gay bar. But this downtown dance club with an 18-over admission policy, extremely entertaining drag shows, and great music is especially fun during the famed Gay Memorial Day Weekend celebration that descends on Pensacola each year. Emerald City is the host venue for the weekend's top parties, and it also presents other cool parties all year, including Halloween. Page 39.

White Horse Inn, Berkeley, California
For more than 75 years, the very convivial White Horse Inn bar has served the gay and lesbian community of the Bay Area, catering to college students from nearby U Cal Berkeley, visiting queers from across the Bay Bridge in San Francisco, and regular Janes and Joes in the grittier city of Oakland. The still-festive bar is in Oakland, right by the Berkeley border. These days it keeps busy by holding a variety of cool theme nights. It also has a delightful patio area, perfect on a warm evening.

Delux Cafe, Boston, Massachusetts
Tiny, offbeat, and easily missed if you just happen by its nondescript exterior, Cafe Delux has become a stalwart of the South End dining scene, to the point of having a cult following. This is bad news if you show up on a busy evening (Delux doesn't take reservations), because the entire dining room is about the size of a Hummer. Hipsters, both gay and straight, descend on this kitschy little spot for its reliably inventive comfort food, buzzing bar scene, and late hours (it's open till 1 am). Page 14.
The Barracks, Cathedral City, California
Does Palm Springs have Gay Bathhouses and Saunas? Not exactly - you will find that many of the city's gay, clothing-optional men's resorts permit (or at least turn a blind eye to) sexual activity around the grounds. But in nearby Cathedral City, where laws and zoning are considered more lax, you will find the region's closest thing to a gay sex club, The Barracks, which is a cruising-encouraged fetish and leather bar and hangout will a hugely popular following.

H.G. Rooster's, West Palm Beach, Florida
Gay bars have come and gone in West Palm Beach and the surrounding county, and these days the GLBT nightlife options are down to just a few spots, but H.G. Roosters has been going strong since the early '80s and remains the most popular gay nightclub in the region. It's an attractively decorated spot just a short drive southwest of downtown, just off Exit 69 of I-95 and close to U.S. 1. Popular events include Monday bingo, male dancers on Friday and Sunday evenings, and karaoke on Wednesdays. Page 64.
Lafayette Gay Bars Guide
A primer on the gay nightlife scene in Lafayette, Louisiana, plus gay-friendly lounges, restaurants, and coffeehouses in and around the area.
The Watergarden, San Jose, California
San Jose's Watergarden bathhouse and men's club is also very well-liked - fans praise the beautiful outdoor garden patio, solicitous staff, and attractive layout. It's a bit more inviting and cheery than the other gay bathhouse in the Bay Area, more industrial-looking Steamworks in Berkeley, but each estbalishment has its adherents, and Steamworks is more convenient to San Francisco. The Watergarden is in an attractive part of town, near the Billy DeFrank LGBT Community Center. Page 88.
Hawks Gym, Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas has both a gay gym-sex club, Hawks Gym, and - in the same rather bizarre and shopping center - a slightly more lavish bathhouse called Entourage. Hawks, pictured here, is beside the Vegas LGBT Center along the same strip of buildings that includes the Badlands Saloon gay bar. It's all part of the Commercial Center, a seedy and rather downcast shopping center a couple of miles east of where the Strip bumps into downtown. Page 9.

Artichoke Basille's Pizza, on East 14th Street
Serious pizza aficionados and ardent gay-nightlife goers both join the long lines throughout the day and late night at Artichoke Pizza, a simple-looking storefront at the north edge of the East Village that turns out simply outstanding pies. It's a simple concept, and just four types of slices are available: artichoke, regular (margarita), Sicilian, and crab. There's also beer, canned sodas, and bottles of Boylan soda. Page 9.
Ybor Resort and Spa, Tampa, Florida
An attractive, well-designed, and clean private gay men's club in Tampa's most historic neighborhood, Ybor Resort and Spa (1512 E. 8th Ave., 813-242-0900) is one of Florida's premier gay saunas and bathhouses, and following the closing of Club Tampa Baths, it's the only such facility in the Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg region. But beyond being a traditional - although unusually nice - bathhouse, Ybor Resort is also a gay hotel with very nice overnight accommodations and reasonable rates. . Page 62.

This downtown establishment has a large gym with first-rate equipment, a nicely decorate pool area and with a sundeck, and plenty of well-decorated lounges and common areas. Page 5.

Nowhere gay bar, on East 14th Street
Although prominently located along busy East 14th Street, the northern border of the East Village, Nowhere has sort of steadily mozied along beneath the downtown gay-bar radar since it opened in 2006 or so. Some (tall) boys lament the low ceilings and find it cramped, and the crowd - by most reports - here varies a lot from night to night, from cute and sexy in that East Village ironic-hipster way to dour and stand-offish.

Fiesta Room Lounge, Panama City, Florida
A fun, welcoming gay club in downtown Panama City, the Fiesta Room Lounge occupies a vintage redbrick building with tall windows, decorative ironwork, and a fantastic old neon sign - it feels a bit like something out of the New Orleans French Quarter. Inside is a colorful bar with drag shows many nights, friendly-priced drinks, and a mixed crowd of gay men, lesbians, and a fair number of straights. It's about a 30-minute drive from the area's other gay club, Splash Bar, in Panama City Beach. Page 36.

Tampa's Rainbow Cabaret and Playhouse Theatre, a gay adult porn and sex plex a few miles north of downtown near Tampa International Airport, is one of the most popular men's cruising grounds in Florida. The club is especially popular during Sunday at the Rainbow, a lively gathering on the club's patio, and the theater shows adult all-male movies 24/7. Similar to a bathhouse (Tampa is also home to the excellent Ybor Resort & Spa gay sauna and hotel), the Rainbow Cabaret also has a large video. Page 58.

Queen's Surf gay beach, Waikiki
By far the most popular gay beach in Hawaii, and one of the most scenic and well-known in the world, Queen's Surf Beach is a relatively secluded stretch of sand in the heart of Waikiki, but along a section with no direct hotel frontage - this accounts for the fact there's more privacy and fewer families here than to the north or south. The beach here draws a mostly gay-male crowd, although certainly not exclusively so, as plenty of lesbians and straights seeking seclusion tan their hides here.
