Mega Clubs

LIV

When it comes to an epic party in Miami, there’s no place like LIV nightclub in Mid Beach. Located inside the legendary Fontainebleau Miami Beach resort, the 18,000-square-foot megaclub boasts a domed ceiling, impressive light show and VIP tables lining the dance floor and mezzanine. World-class DJs such as David Guetta, Steve Angello and Tiësto are regulars here, laying down the beats that make the crowd bounce. That’s when the confetti starts flying and glow sticks come out. Bring your A game and dress to impress – this is one of the toughest velvet ropes in town.

Story

A sister club to LIV in South BeachStory is even bigger and has an emphasis on the electronic underground. Their Saturday night parties play host to subversive artists like Guy Gerber, Dubfire and Lee Foss, but mainstream DJs like Skrillex, Steve Aoki and Calvin Harris are also regulars here. The enormous space features a massive DJ booth, pulsating lights and live entertainers to complement the beats.

E11EVEN Miami

One of Miami’s wildest nightlife hotspots, E11EVEN Miami is situated inside a massive entertainment complex in Downtown Miami that's open 24-hours a day. A self-described “immersive” experience, E11EVEN is part cabaret and part night club, featuring dancers, DJs and other performers as the main event. The club also boasts a rooftop restaurant and lounge.

Club Space

For afterhours revelers not ready to call it quits at 5 a.m., Club Space is your refuge for dancing in a warehouse-style space in Downtown Miami well past the break of dawn. Hosting world-class DJs at all hours, the dance party at Space takes you to another dimension.

Ultra Lounges

Basement

A hip hangout inside The Miami Beach EDITION hotel in Mid Beach, Basement takes nightlife to another level. There’s a place to dance – after all, it's dubbed Discobox and inspired by Ian Schrager’s legendary Studio 54 (he’s also the mastermind behind the hotel). And there are a couple of novel concepts too: a four-lane bowling alley and an ice-skating rink. Discobox’s sound skews towards nu-disco, and they host a variety of themed parties throughout the week with both visiting and local DJs on the decks.

Hip Local Hangs

Sweet Liberty

Tucked away off Collins Park, Sweet Liberty is a favorite South Beach hideaway for locals. The airy industrial space boasts a kitschy, tropical vibe with exposed rafters and palm tree wallpaper set against a bar lined with glittering bottles. Sweet Liberty boasts a killer cocktail menu complemented by delicious snacks like cauliflower nachos. The vibe is low-key yet spirited with a great lineup of live musicians and indie DJs that keep the dancing going late night.

Bodega

At Bodega in South Beach, tacos come with a twist. The food truck-like façade is a front for a secret speakeasy dance club. Specializing in tequila cocktails, this club has an approachable yet high-energy vibe with late night dancing to live DJs. And remember, when hunger strikes, the taco stand is right outside!

Latin Clubs

Mango’s Tropical Cafe

On legendary Ocean Drive in South Beach, Mango’s Tropical Cafe is one of those Miami experiences everyone has to experience at least once. Step inside to the sounds of salsa and flamenco music and, chances are, a woman bedecked in ruffles and a full headdress will be tangoing on the bar with a man in skintight sequin pants. Order a piña colada and enjoy the show, or hop on the dance floor to try out your own moves.
