Top Nightclubs in Miami

Miami weather can be hot, but the nightclub scene is even hotter. So leave the shorts and sandals at the hotel and always dress your best!

To make the most of your time, get information or help from nightlife ambassadors, which have become a necessity for many nightclubs to build and maintain a steady flow of patrons through their doors. Your hotel concierge makes a great nightlife ambassador or will know great locals nightlife ambassadors. Always arrive early and try to reserve a table ahead of time, so you can spend more time celebrating and less time waiting.

Boys Night out

Roll deep in Miami and check out these awesome places to hang with your crew.

Duffy's in North Miami Beach is a perfect place to catch the most important game of the season or just a good game with one of your favorite teams. Great drink specials, indoor area and outside pool for those hot days, and the best part is you can pull up in your boat, jet ski or yacht in their spacious dock.

If your crew has vocal style, Tuesdays at Blue Martini in Downtown Brickell is the place to show off the pipes. Normal karaoke is for the old, Karaoke with a Live Band...now that's interesting! Take your chance at a weekly cash prize for belting out with a Live band! Then stay for the after party.

Then end the night at Story nightclub on South Beach. This place should not be missed with its state of the art sound, gorgeous dancers and jaw dropping light show. Expect typical Miami prices but the experience is worth it. Don't leave Miami without paying a visit to Story.


Girls Night Out

There are lots of options in Miami to make a girls’ night out an unforgettable night no matter what night of the week it is.

Wednesday nights at Blue Martini in Kendall is a popular destination for Miami locals and where the ladies come to enjoy a great 1/2 off the menu all night long. A great choice for bachelorette and bachelor parties with free bottle specials.

On Thursdays, spice it up with Latin Ladies Night at Taverna Opa – Dolphin Mall. It's never a dull moment when the ladies can drink mojitos and shots at the bar for free till 1 am! A Greek restaurant by day, an exotic Latin atmosphere by night, Taverna Opa hosts one of the sexiest latin crowds in Miami. It's a great place to cut a rug if you can keep up with a Salsa loving crowd too.

Some other great places for a girls’ night out are Waxy’s on the River and Spazio.
