Miami's 8 best Labor Day parties

W Ft. Lauderdale

Miami Waking up at noon, hitting the beach, and then going to your quote/unquote job is hard work, which is why Labor Day is so important in Miami. We need a break from our brutal schedules full of strip clubs and pool parties to go to... more parties, like these eight that’ll top your Labor Day list.

Friday, August 29th: Churchill's Pub celebrates 35 years of being “that place in Miami where you can go and actually watch live bands” -- and being one of Miami's best dive bars -- by hosting 60 bands on three stages starting Friday and going through Monday. There's no cover and they'll have plenty of pretty good food. Continue Reading


Saturday, August 30th: Bob Sinclar is bringing his Paris by Night party back to Wall, so in addition to chain smoking, complaining about everything, wearing a scarf, and these 20 things Parisians do, you should probably also buy advance tickets here.


Saturday, August 30th: Everyone will think you’re a gourmet grill master on Labor Day, thanks to BLT Prime Chef Dustin Ward's class and tasting . He'll teach you how to make tuna tartare, grilled skirt steak with veggies, and panna cotta with grilled peaches -- just like they do at one of Miami's most underrated steakhouses. $50 lets you eat all of it, too.

Saturday, August 30th: It’s time to  grab your inflatable Spongebob raft! Floatopia is back at South Pointe Park. And if you wanna post a pic of yourself and tag @MarriottStantonSobe on Instagram or @SoBeMarriott on Twitter, you’ll get a free daiquiri with a… waitforit… FLOATER at the Marriott Stanton on 2nd St.


Monday, September 1st: There’ll be absolutely no cover at all to hit up the WET pool deck at the W Ft. Lauderdale for a Noelle Vazzano swimsuit fashion show, plus the usual Grey Goose and Bacardi poolside party with DJ Kevin Graham will be happening from noon-sunset.


Monday, September 1st: Uncle Tom’s Barbecue -- the Gables' best new summer restaurant -- is having a cookout with live music , $1 beers, $2 mile-long hot dogs, and $4 quarter chickens that they promise were NOT taken from the streets a couple miles East.


Monday, September 1st: Boozy Brunch shouldn’t be limited to Sunday, like, ever, but especially not when you’ve got Monday off. So down $20 bottomless mimosas with some Korean chicken & waffles at OTC in Brickell from 11am-3pm.


Monday, September 1st: The Mayfair in Coconut Grove knows this holiday is about giving hard working people a day to relax, so they’ll be giving out free petit massages at their rooftop pool, plus ladies get free Champagne too, regardless of whether they work hard or don’t work at all.

Summer is almost over... hopefully you did all 13 of these things
