What to know about Sizzle Miami 2019

Memorial Day Weekend in Miami Beach is always smoking hot, but since 2002 it sizzles! Sizzle South Beach, “America’s most celebrated and anticipated urban gay event” is the brainchild of Dwight Daniel. This weekend long party will take over the National Hotel from Thursday, May 23 through Memorial Day Monday on May 27, for what are sure to be the hottest parties on the beach this holiday weekend, with the skimpiest, tightest, sexiest swimsuits Miami has to offer!

What started as a one-day party in Miami during Memorial Day Weekend in 2002, has blossomed into five full days of events. From pool parties at the host hotel (National Hotel Miami Beach) to beach parties at Miami’s famed Haulover Beach - one of the best naturist beaches in the world - you know this holiday weekend is going to be on fire!

Before we get down to the “get down,” let’s take care of some business first. A few room packages at the National Hotel remain but they are going fast, so act quickly before they are gone. Don’t worry, if they are sold out there are tons of other options in Miami Beach. Take a look here.

As far as event tickets are concerned, many of the events are expected to sell out, but at some events, tickets will be available at the door. Because some of the events will sell out, Sizzle organizers offer Ultimate and Club Express Cards that guarantee admission to the events as well as VIP Experience and No Lines/No Waiting. Take a look at all ticket options, but basically both Ultimate and Club Express Cards come in three- or four-day options. The Ultimate Card includes all the day events as well as the evening parties. The Express Club Card ONLY includes admission to the evening events, as well as VIP Experience and No Lines /No Waiting.

South Beach will be “sizzling” and drinks will be flowing all day long. If you are a night owl on the prowl, don’t worry; there’s plenty of options for you too with parties that don’t end ‘til the sun comes up the next day!

Everything gets off to an early and very chill(y) start when, on Thursday, May 23, The Welcome Party lights the spark at Drinkhouse Fire & Ice Bar, across the street from the host hotel. You won’t get too cold though because faux fur coats, gloves, and a welcome cocktail are all provided to help keep you warm. Things really get heated up later that night at the Mega Jump Off at Studio 23 Nightclub just up Collins Avenue at 23rd Street.

The daytime parties start Friday afternoon with the annual Yacht Party, which is hosted by Prince from Love and Hip Hop Miami. The party goes from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. but boarding is 1:30 p.m. Who’s ready for a wet, wild and freaky ride on The Biscayne Lady? Enjoy free food, tasty drinks, high-energy crowd, great music, and loads of fun in the sun.

Friday evening starts with a Pre-game party at the National Hotel, a free event with complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Later, the party moves uptown to Trade Nightclub for Circuit Noise, the Friday evening party that will last until 5:00 a.m.

After all night at the club, get Saturday started at the incredible pool of the National Hotel, where the Sizzle Pool Party will last from noon until 7:30 p.m. The event promises to be Sizzle’s largest pool party ever and will feature a hot body contest as well as a fashion show. You won’t want to miss this party.

Saturday night’s party, Miami Live, is the main event of the Sizzle lineup and this night will be electrifying. The venue, Teeehouse Miami is one of the newer spots in Miami Beach and it is sure to dazzle the senses. Things kick off at 11:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Spend Sunday relaxing on the beach at Haulover State Park for Sizzle’s Haulover Takeover. Haulover Beach is one of the worlds best “naturist” beaches so feel free to let it all hang out for this event! The beach is open to the public so there’s no official party or ticket needed. Just show up ready for a sexy day of fun in the sun! Metered parking is available at Haulover Park but it does fill up sometimes by mid-afternoon!

Save the best for last right? Sunday’s closing party, the mother of all parties, is Insomnia and it doesn’t end ‘til the sun comes up Monday morning. Head over to Club Space in Miami for the party to end all parties at one of the most iconic nightclub spots in Miami. “Everyone that knows knows that there's no party like the Sizzle party at Club Space.” Metered parking and parking lots are plentiful nearby. (Pro tip: download the Miami and Miami Beach parking app to make parking less painful.)
