With White Party Party Week hitting town from November 26 to December 1, we’re sharing the best of the LGBT community here in Miami Beach. While the sunny beaches are always an option, we’ve found a few places worth checking out after you’ve spent the day lounging out in the sun. A tight-knit community in Miami Beach, the LGBT presence is huge and is always open to welcoming newbies. Spend some time taking in the scene here in Miami Beach, but be sure not to wear yourself out before the White Party festivities!

Expect to spend a few hours perusing the classic vinyls and the rest of the very cool collection at Base in Miami Beach. Co-founder Steven Giles, who you can catch at the shop, knows a thing or two about what it means to be effortlessly cool. Did we mention he is also super charming as well as dashing?
