Pass-A-Grille LGBTQ History:

This area of Pass-a-Grille was the gay beach long before Bedrox and the popularity of Sunset Beach. The Hurricane was an open-to-the-beach gay bar called Jack's 809. On 8th, around the corner was the Lighted Tree (earlier Georgia's) and a gay guesthouse.....the area became more difficult to visit by the imposition of permit-required parking on all the streets except the metered spaces on Gulf Blvd.

PASS-A-GRILLE BEACH (PAG) TODAY:

Pass-a-Grille is a pet friendly neighborhood at the southern end of St. Pete Beach in Pinellas County, Florida. The beach community includes the Pass-a-Grille Historic District, Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, and Pass-A-Grille Beach. The small beach town includes inns, hotels, restaurants, retailers, and waterfront areas on the Gulf of Mexico as well as the intercoastal waterway. It is located on a barrier island just south of the famous Don CeSar Hotel (The Pink Hotel)
