Global fare, drinks and hookah are offered at this Monday-only establishment amid water walls and DJ sets. It is considered the place to party in Miami on the first night of the week, so sign up for bottle service and bask in the red velvet vibes.
This Alton Rd eatery's got some of SoFla's best craft brews on tap. With organic eats and happy hour specials, this gastropub has plenty of local character.
Contrary to what you might think, Baoli is a club that'll actually feed you something other than vodka. The outdoor space may be the main attraction, but the food isn't half bad, and once it hits midnight things go off completely.
From a couple nightlife/restaurant veterans and actor Olivier Martinez (aka, the dude who banged Diane Lane in a hallway), comes Villa Azur: a stately-but-relaxing French eatery aiming to capture the "glamour and allure found in the French Riviera" by hiring a ketchup-hating Franco-designer to dress up the sprawling indoor/outdoor space with vintage chandeliers, mod leather couches, and antique wood fixtures.
Amnesia wasn't Neverending, so now it's Story, which employed the help of David Grutman (LIV, Arkadia) to add even more purple lights, stadium-style leather lounges, and half-naked bottle-service chicks while the massive venue rotates big-name spinners like Tiesto and Kaskade.
Oh, you thought you knew all there was to know about SLS? Well now you need to learn yourself on Hyde, the LA superlounge whose infinitely more low-key Miami version basically looks like a swank rec/sun room complete with cushy orange couches, hula girl lamps, a tile-lined patio and pool, plus a foosball table whose players are princesses and punk rockers.
Burlesque performances? Check. Big-name DJs? Yeah. LED screens, a stage with a (cough, cough) pole, plus straight-off-the-carving board eats like pulled pork sliders 24 HOURSA DAY?! Miami's hottest dayclub, E11EVEN, is delivering all of the above, plus bottle service, and scantily clad dancers who are wayyy more likely to hang out if you buy said bottle service and post up in one the leather booths lining the dance floor/balcony.
This over-the-top club is located in a multi-story warehouse, and comes complete with live DJs and a rooftop terrace. Thanks to its 24-hours license, lots of lasers, and pretty lights, the after-after-after-hours club is Miami's greatest freak show, and likely the only 10+-year-old club that can lay claim to such subsisting fame.
Chic European decor and modern French fare make this a trendy spot for jet-setters to flock to. They host one of the best brunch parties in Miami, with towers of seafood and champagne served by girls dressed in an endless variety of costumes.
Terrazza at Shore Club offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner in both indoor and outdoor spaces that overlook the club’s infamous pool. The Italian menu is comprised of handmade brick oven pizzas, homemade pastas, fresh salads, and wood-fired, dry-aged steaks and chops. Opt for the Bufalina pizza with San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, grated Parmesan, and basil, or the branzino with sautéed kale, cannellini beans, bacon, garlic, and salsa verde.
Part of the 'Bleau's Vegas-style resort, LIV is a massive, 18000-square-foot vaguely amphitheatrical club laid out in a multi-layered, nearly circular design that presents zero obstacles to voyeurs, performers, and DJs -- Calvin Harris, Steve Angello, and Sander Van Doorn -- from seeing and being seen from from almost anywhere. And since “getting a table at LIV” is basically Miami for “my weekend’s gonna be way cooler than yours,” the two-story megaclub in the Fontainebleau is definitely a top contender.
