Beyond The Ballroom

Miami hosts the hottest parties and events year-round, so if you’re planning a traditional event, there are hundreds of ballrooms to choose from including modern, tropical and luxury styled rooms and venues, but if you’re looking to get out of the traditional four walled space – read on.

Some of the most memorable events happen in places and spaces that are unexpected, extraordinary or just plain strange. Looking to really make a mark? Think about having your event in a space that will surprise your guests from the moment they open their invitation.

Start thinking of great paces you love as movie sets – that parking garage could be your dance floor, that football or baseball field or basketball arena could host your cocktail hour, an arcade can be the backdrop for your fun fiesta, a racetrack or casino can keep all your guests entertained and attractions otherwise filled with animals will bring out the party animal in your guests.

Miami’s nightclubs throw killer parties every night, why not book a room and let them do the rest of the work? Want to make more of a statement? Book the whole club.

Museums, Galleries and Performance Venues

Many of Miami’s arts venues, from museums to theatres and arts centers, are available as rental spaces. Some spaces have private rooms for events and others open their full facilities as an event space in their off hours.

Have a catered reception in the lobby area, a corporate function in an outdoor space, or an elegant seated event in a private salon. Have cocktails on the lawn followed by a private performance on a stage large or small, a screening of a film, art exhibit, press conference, award ceremony, concert or seminar. These flexible venues host events of their own year-round, including fundraisers and gallery openings. They’ll probably have connections with rental companies and other event specialists that already know their space and can make setting up a breeze.

Be sure to ask about any services they’re familiar with when you call them for more information.

Historical Sites

Host your event at a historical site and ensure that your party will be a part of history. Miami’s historical sites range from splendid deco architectural spaces on Miami Beach to sprawling estates in Southwest Miami Dade. Travel a bit off the beaten path or have your party in a landmark site in the middle of all the action.

From Coral Gables’ romantic 1920’s Venetian Pool, the only swimming pool on the National Register of Historic Places, to Coconut Grove’s Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and The Barnacle Historic State Park, to Key Biscayne’s bohemian Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, and Palmetto Bay's Deering Estate at Cutler, an estate filled with virgin coastal tropical hardwood hammock, to a mysterious Coral Castle, the quaint and secluded Cauley Square Historic Village, or even the oldest building in the Western Hemisphere, an Ancient Spanish Monastery are available for you.

Outdoor Events

Take advantage of Miami’s bright and sunny weather year-round; while the rest of the country bundles up, winter is a lovely time for an outdoor event in Greater Miami and Beaches. The beach is often considered the go-to venue for outdoor events in Miami, but any local in the know can tell you the venues extended far beyond the sand and surf.

Think of National Parks, poolside courtyards, palm lined patios, botanic gardens, exotic fruit parks, golf courses, tropical terraces, a winery, an open air live music venue and much more.

Adventurous Events

Take your guests out on the open seas in a yacht, sailboat, catamaran or even an airboat and let your event be more than just a party but an adventure! Get up close and personal with animals like alligators, monkeys, dolphins, whales and more.
