Where Miami - - WHERE NOW -

Miami is syn­ony­mous with nightlife. The leg­endary stretch of beach is renowned as one of the long­est established nightlife scenes in the coun­try but it’s also one of the fastest-grow­ing. A new breed of mil­len­nial partiers is trans­form­ing the his­toric trop­i­cal play­ground of the rich and fa­mous into the go-to dance des­ti­na­tion for those who pre­fer both clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary.

1 This DJ- driven quin­tes­sen­tial nightspot fuses the ap­peal of an ul­tra- ex­clu­sive lounge and a high- en­ergy night­club. With a strik­ing ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign and lav­ish decor, this celeb-loving hotspot sets the stage for the de­fin­i­tive nightlife ex­pe­ri­ence. Dance till dawn to a va­ri­ety of hip-hop, house and rock riffs from some of the world’s top DJs. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.674.4680


2 De­signed by leg­endary in­te­rior ar­chi­tect Fran­cois Frossard, this club has a big­ger and bolder con­cept than other night­clubs on the beach, with an even greater em­pha­sis on the elec­tronic dance mu­sic un­der­ground. Satur­day night par­ties are epic when up-and-com­ing DJs drop the beat along­side Skrillex, Steve Aoki or Calvin Har­ris. 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.538.2424


3 Nightlife in Miami can be quite fickle, with busi­ness clos­ings and new clubs opening reg­u­larly, but WALL Miami, in­side the W South Beach, has been de­fy­ing the odds host­ing South Beach’s long­est run­ning par­ties. But what makes WALL Miami unique is its smaller and more in­ti­mate venue, a wel­come change for Miami Beach. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.938.3130


4 Miami’s first 24-hour ul­tra- club presents an “im­mer­sive” ex­pe­ri­ence that’s part- cabaret and part-night­club fea­tur­ing dancers, DJs and aeri­al­ists in Cirque-style per­for­mances and ex­otic acts. One of DJ Magazine’s Top 100 Clubs, E11EVEN also boasts a rooftop restau­rant and lounge with small plates, pizza and spe­cialty cock­tails. 15 NE 11th St., Miami, 305.570.4803


5 Ocean Drive’s high­en­ergy spot that of­fers en­ter­tain­ment like noth­ing else. This Latin mu­sic venue is known for its cabaret­style en­ter­tain­ment and the fa­mous Mango dancers. Come for din­ner and stay for the show with mu­sic of all gen­res (salsa, bachata, samba, merengue) played nightly from 8 to 11 pm. 900 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, 305.673.4422


6 For a late-night li­ba­tion or a night of en­ter­tain­ment, head to the Elec­tric Pickle in Miami’s Wyn­wood Art Dis­trict. Described as “an in­ti­mate, liquor-fu­eled love ma­chine,” this dance­hall is the spot to groove to un­der­ground dance mu­sic from DJs spin­ning un­til the wee hours. 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami, 305.456.5613


7 This hip, retro down­stairs lounge at the Gale South Beach Ho­tel is a cool, sub­ter­ranean lounge with wood-pan­eled de­sign, var­i­ous knick-knacks and stacks of old records. A wel­come con­trast to glit­ter­ing South Beach, the sound­track here is a re­fresh­ing mash-up of 1980-90s clas­sics and house mu­sic. 1690 Collins Ave., 786.975.2555


8 Calle Ocho hotspot in Lit­tle Ha­vana that once played host to Bil­lie Hol­i­day, Chet Baker and Count Basie. Newly re­stored to its for­mer glory, the Cuban-style Lati­nand-jazz-joint fea­tures live mu­sic, bar bites and cool cock­tails. 1513 SW 8th St., Miami, 305.643.7820
