The global art scene descends on Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach with world-renowned galleries, cutting edge artists, deep-pocketed collectors and a slew of celebrities and socialites buzzing through town. That means one big party. From secret pop-up nightclubs to A-list VIP fêtes, Art Basel is an exciting week for Miami nightlife.

If you’re after a buzzy scene, South Beach’s trendy hotels are always a good place to start. From lobby bars and chic restaurants to onsite art installations, you can’t go wrong ducking into Faena, W South Beach, Soho Beach House or Nautilus by Arlo, while you’re out and about during Miami Art Week.

If you’re looking to rub elbows with the “it” crowd during a night on the town, here’s your guide to some of Miami’s hottest nightlife destination during Art Basel Miami Beach 2019.

Miami Beach

Basement at The Miami Beach EDITION

Basement at The Miami Beach EDITION promises to be a hotspot for late night Art Basel after parties. The subterranean club-lounge is home to the intimate Discobox dance club, which has hosted everyone from Questlove to Soul Clap. It also boasts an ice-skating rink and a four-lane bowling alley. Basement knows how to throw a serious party with a light-hearted, wild spirit.

LIV at Fontainebleau

For art lovers in search of the megaclub experience, all roads lead to LIV at the Fontainebleau. Going strong for a decade and fresh off a multi-million dollar overhaul, revelers can expect a star-studded Art Basel Miami Beach 2019 lineup with A-list DJs like David Guetta, Tiesto, Kaskade and Calvin Harris.


In recent years, South Beach nightclub Rockwell has hosted the 1OAK pop-up club during Miami Art Week. If this year is anything like the last five, we expect a slew of A-list celebrities to attend the ragers, including Lenny Kravitz, Kendall Jenner, Lebron James and Diddy with performances by the likes of Rick Ross or Gucci Mane.

Broken Shaker

Broken Shaker is the ultimate spot for a chill party by day and night in South Beach. Set inside The Freehand hotel’s shaded courtyard with mix-and-match patio furniture and overhead string lighting, it’s full of subtropical charm. Founded by Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi, it’s also home to some of the most creative cocktails in the city. During Art Basel Miami Beach 2019, expect a slew of hip parties and a cool crowd.


Mana Wynwood

Occupying a 100,000-square-foot warehouse on the outskirts of Wynwood, Mana Wynwood has become the ultimate cultural event space hosting concerts, art shows and creative happenings, including III Points music festival. In years past, they’ve staged everything from a Kendrick Lamar concert to celebrity-hosted bashes and the HIVE pop-up lounge featuring a skate park, sculpture garden and live art installations during Art Basel Miami.


Wynwood hotspot Racket promises to be a high-energy scene during Miami Art Week. The indoor-outdoor, two-story cocktail bar, lounge and nightclub offers a wide variety of spaces and scenes to explore where DJs spin everything from hip-hop to house. The club hosts a monthly Art Walk party that draws a fun crowd and last year during Miami Art Week, DJ Jazzy Jeff took to the turntables.


Lost Boy

Downtown’s nightlife scene is heating with the opening of locally-owned Lost Boy, a sprawling den for tippling that feels like an eclectic ski lodge, complete with a pool table, dartboards and plenty of cozy spots to lounge. With a solid locals scene and a late night food menu, we suspect that many Art Week nights out will end here.

Mama Tried

Located around the corner from Lost Boy, Mama Tried provides retro-glam vibes in Downtown Miami with a central bar and golden globe lights overhead. The energy amps late night with a DJ and a hip, artsy crowd fills the space ready to party. You can’t go wrong stopping by on a night out during Miami Art Week.

The Anderson

You have to be in the know to find this hip little hideaway off the beaten path near the 79th Street Causeway and Little Haiti. And when you do, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with The Anderson’s retro 80s vibes, a chill outdoor patio and a DJ-fueled dance floor. The crowd is hip and local and out for a night of craft cocktail tippling and delicious grub. Expect fun alternative parties during Miami Art Week 2019 featuring underground DJs and artist collectives.
