GaYbor might be the best known local district for LGBT drinking destinations, but if you're looking for something a little quieter and laid back, duck into the gay bar (but definitely straight friendly) Azalea Lounge. It's a beautiful old building with a comfy, closed-in back patio. Just pace yourself on the mixed drink intake. Azalea serves some of the strongest beverages our Barfly columnist has ever tasted. Seriously, their rum-n-Cokes might literally be flammable.
