From Brickell to South Beach, in Miami the day begins when the sun goes down and then just keeps on going.
Miami’s nonstop nightclubs are as alluring as the city’s gorgeous beaches.
Lines form around the block at Bodega (305-704-2145), the Alton Road–adjacent lounge with a secret entrance and taco stand. The party can start with Mexican food and end eight hours later with bottles of vodka—or vice versa, depending on your mood.
LIV IT UP
For the biggest DJs and wildest party crowds, LIV (305-674-4680) at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is the go-to destination. You can sip Champagne and dance under falling confetti on the lavish dance floor, while top spinners like Tiesto or Zedd are working just steps away.
AN INTIMATE AFFAIR
Though the quarters are close at Wall (305-938- 3130), the celebrity-studded lounge packs a mean nightlife punch. With some of Miami’s sexiest dance parties and performances, Wall is an intimate spot where you can let loose with friends and rub elbows with A-listers.
SOUTH OF FIFTH SOUNDS
With its world-famous DJs, Story (305-538-2424) is a must-see for any vacationer. Private tables next to the DJ booth or near a recognizable celebrity can run over $100,000 on special occasions. But any view of Calvin Harris at 4 am is sure to be a good one.
In a category all by itself, the “showclub” E11even (305-829-2911) is where the party literally never stops. You can stumble in at 5 am to find it packed with people dancing, or just watch the in-house talent perform their moves—often including an acrobat dangling from the ceiling.
SOUTH BEACH CLASSIC
Delano South Beach (305-672-2000) offers unparalleled attractions, including the Delano Beach Club’s weekend daytime poolside parties. Relax on the sophisticated deck, sipping exquisite cocktails in a private cabana, or lounge by the infinity pool until sunset. After dark, head to FDR, the Delano’s nightclub, and dance the night away.
NEW IN TOWN
Amidst the colorful buildings in the Art Deco District is the recently renovated Nautilus, A Sixty Hotel (305-503-5700). You can unwind by the heated saltwater pool at the Cabana Club during the day, dine at the stunning Driftwood Room in the evening, and enjoy sublime libations in the Lobby Bar before a night on the town.
TO THE NORTH
Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails (954-699-0901) in Hallandale Beach offers the perfect dining experience for those who are heading up north but still crave a taste of South Beach. This oceanside destination serves heavenly cuisine and cocktails.
