Where to Party in Miami?
Looking to find the best nightlife on your upcoming Florida holiday? Look no further than the sunny, sand-powdered shores of Miami. As you might have noticed from TV commercials, Hollywood films or Will Smith videos, Miami has a bit of a reputation for having some of the finest nightlife in the world, but where is the best place to soak it up?
Everyone’s first port of call should probably be the pretty iconic South Beach. Home to one of the world’s largest collections of Streamline Moderne Art Deco, over 150 clubs and an awful lot of sun kissed beach-blondes wearing very, very little, it’s no wonder that South Beach attracts revellers from all over the world.
One of the best places to start with is Mynt Lounge. The post-modern name is appropriate for the futuristic lounge frequented by actors, models, rock stars and, presumably, some normal people too. Although, unless you are famous, married to someone famous or are exceedingly wealthy, you might struggle to make it onto the exclusive guest list – you can always sign up to their online guest list, though, and see if that helps.
OK, so maybe, you’re not Paris Hilton and you don’t need the validation that comes with getting into a ridiculously exclusive club, where should you go then? South Beach also offers the slightly less exclusive venue of the Nikki Beach Club. It’s situated right under the palm trees, atop the sandy shore of South Beach and transforms from an upscale restaurant during the day into a rather hot and heavy dance club at night. OK, so it’s not exactly easy to get into either but who doesn’t like a challenge, right?
Nightlife has slowly spread from South Beach to other areas of the town too. In downtown Miami you can check out Space – not to be confused with Club Space, though the same team are behind both. Here, you’ve got light shows, a VIP lounge and bar, the latest in video technology and a whole lot of high-energy people ready and willing to party the night away.
Not all clubbing in Miami is of the high-energy variety; in fact some of it positively yearns for a bit of rest and relaxation. Take the club BED, for instance. It features, as the name ever so subtly hints at, lots of plush king-size beds in the place of actual tables. Although, don’t be fooled by the duvet covers they’ve got, Bed still likes to heat things up a bit as the night progresses. You can feast your eyes on the Erotica Dinner Theatre or dance to the various sounds of funk, hip hop and R&B that flow from the club otherwise known as Beverage, Entertainment and Dining.
This is only a tiny trace of a flavour of the incredible wealth of dance-based venues Miami has to offer. From the world famous Club Madonna to the legendary Cameo, Miami has a little something to suit all energetic party goers the world over.
