Nightlife in Miami

Posted by admin on July 14, 2017

Nightlife – it’s one of the things Miami is famous for, right? Just like Miami’s reputation for beautiful beaches and vacations, the nightlife scene is legendary. 

However, it’s not all about nightclubs where the rich and famous party. Miami’s nightlife does offer something for most tastes and budgets. The first thing to do is to ask yourself what you want – is it to dance, listen to live music, enjoy a cocktail with a poolside view or rub shoulders with the jet set?  Here’s a quick guide to give you more information on what to expect from the nightlife in Miami:  

1. Nightclubs.

Miami’s South Beach nightclubs gave Miami its legendary nightlife status. If you want to, you can party through the night with tunes laid on by world class DJs. This is the place to see and be seen. Perhaps the most well known club here is LIV – a mega club where you’ll find celebrities and stars on the other side of the velvet rope. It is mostly bottle service, so you’ll need to bring cash.  

Basement is another popular haunt – complete with an ice rink and bowling alley in the basement for when you need a break from the dance floor. 

Twist, on South Beach is a haven for those who love to dance. Primarily a gay club set across two floors – everyone is welcome. 

In Downtown Miami, E11EVEN is full of entertainment – you’ll find performers, dancers and DJs here 24 hours a day. 

You’ll also find world class DJs and partygoers at ClubSpace  - a warehouse type venue in Downtown Miami which is usually still partying well past dawn.

2. Cocktail bars.

For something a little quieter – there are some fantastic cocktail bars in the Miami area. 

The Corner is a really distinctive cocktail bar in Downtown Miami. It’s open into the wee small hours and the cocktails are a mix of classics and classy new recipes. 

If you want to experience early days Miami chic then head to The Regent Cocktail Bar in South Beach. Everything about it is vintage! Given Miami’s Art Deco reputation, it’s an area that’s made for cocktail bars – don’t you think?

 3. Rooftop bars.

Miami’s rooftop bars are a really great way to experience the city’s nightlife and its amazing views. 

For a more laid back approach to rooftop dining and drinking, the Mayfair Hotel and Bar in Coconut Grove has a lovely view of the Grove and the Bay. On Miami Beach itself, many of the hotels will have some sort of rooftop bar. There, you’ll find stylish venues like Clevelander and Dream South Beach.  There’s also a daily happy hour at the Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami’s pool and restaurant. 

In Downtown Miami, one of the most fashionable locations is Epic Hotel’s Area 31.

4. Live music venues in Miami. 

Jazid is a South Beach live music success story. Upstairs you’ll find DJ sounds and downstairs you’ll hear local musicians performing Latin and Jazz. It’s a simple formula that seems to work. 

The Mango’s Tropical Café is a legendary bar, you’ll find good music and dancers here every night of the week. 

Check out what some of the hotels have on their bill, too. Some of them will host live music at various times of the week. 

Also, the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach hosts live music performances – from well-known artists to musicians who are just starting out. You might find a hidden gem, who knows?!
