Located on the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, Score touts itself as being South Beach's largest gay club, offering a multidimensional nightlife experience.
Not in the mood for a smoky club environ? Score's outdoor seating area is great for people-watching and sipping on the bar's famous frozen cosmos (they're strong, so watch out).
On Fridays, kick it on the dancefloor to the sounds of local DJs who play a gambit of house music and pop mashups at Score's Filthy Gorgeous Fridays party. DJ Abel (of Alegria fame) has been known to spin sporadically on Saturdays. Tuesdays feature Planeta Macho, a Latin night that brings all the Latino boys "to the yard." On Thursdays, enter through the lounge's back door for Score's Creme Lounge, with DJ Pride mixing house music with an accompanying beat of a Cuban conga drummer. Wind down Sundays with karaoke night starting at 9:30pm in the front bar.
Cover: Charges vary. Thursdays and Sundays are free, but Fridays and Saturdays always have a charge. The outdoor patio area is free. If you want to get on the guest list for Flithy Gorgeous Fridays, go to www.pennybackboyz.com and sign up.
