Miami is one of the world's top party destinations, and like any such city, it's filled with bars and nightspots. In fact, the 305's got so many sweet nightclubs that it's almost impossible to know which club to go to, and when, unless some sweet lifestyle site hooks you up with a list of Miami's sweetest clubs for every night of the week. Oh, wait...

Mokai Lounge

Mokai Mondays

Mokai (address and info)
Mid-Beach
When: Monday
Bite Me. Spank Me. Tease Me. That’s not a bad motto. And the high woman to man ratio isn't bad either, which makes it worth the effort to get past the strict doorman into the Asian-inspired space dominated by oversized leather couches.

Wall Lounge

Favela Beach

Wall Lounge (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Tuesday
Hit it up to see the finest honeys in their LBDs dancing to Rio-inspired beats at this intimate club that feels like you’ve stumbled into a VIP section (it’s that small). The tighter, the better, right?
 

Slap & Tickle

Bardot (address and info)
Midtown
When: Tuesday
Whether you’re making out on the couches, playing pool in the back, or dancing to the sounds of Pirate Stereo and Santiago Caballero on The Carpet, just make sure you leave with someone up for a little... um, well, you know...

EDITION

Basement on Wednesday

Basement (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Wednesday
Miami may not be known for its basements, but this one is a decidedly cool addition decked out in Studio 54 swag. The basement features a bowling alley, a skating rink, and a nightclub that are all interconnected. Did we mention the giant disco ball hanging from the ceiling?
 

International Wednesdays

Mansion Nightclub (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Wednesday
All the clubbing will most likely leave you broke, but it doesn’t mean you can’t “travel” with music and all the international babes that come with it. This all goes down inside Miami’s most famous mansion outfitted with everything you’d need in one -- gaudy chandeliers, plush everything, two levels, and eight bars. In true Miami fashion, you can end the night at a strip club; Club Madonna is just a few blocks up the street.
 

My Boyfriend is Out of Town

Bâoli (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Wednesday
Guys, feign sickness and head straight to this French-inspired restaurant cum lounge where you can also totally pretend your girlfriend is out of town. There’ll be more than sparklers going off.

Rec Room

Rush Rush

Rec Room (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Thursday
This intimate underground basement-like space is way cooler than That '70s Show ever was. Funk music rounds out the flashback experience. But because it’s Miami, you may run into Fez from time to time.
 

Your Move Thursdays

Hyde Beach (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Thursday
Miami prefers to get turnt-up on Thursdays; it’s almost the weekend! Whether you’re getting down to hip-hop inside or chilling outside, it’s your move at this West Coast transplant.

Jake Pierce for Grand Central

Peachfuzz

The Garret at Grand Central (address and info)
Downtown
When: Friday
This hipster-style club within a club that’s actually a converted train station promises to take you back to the days when you rocked the peach fuzz without all that awkwardness. DJ DZA provides the hip-hop beats.
 

Story on Fridays

STORY (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Friday
Wild weekend ahead? This is THE place to kick it off. With a phenomenal sound system and lighting that rivals LIV’s, this 27,000sqft SoFi spot brings in the world’s best DJs from David Guetta to Kaskade to Cedric Gervais, and of course, Steve Aoki.

Blackbird Ordinary

LIV on Saturdays

LIV (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Saturday
This is the holy grail of nightclubs in Miami. If you manage to get into this two-story architectural wonder of a mega-club, you’re cooler than cool. Just be prepared to drop a lot of dough while you're LIVing it up.
 

Space on Saturdays

Club Space (address and info)
Downtown
When: Saturday
It’s time to scratch off #15 from our list of the things you need to experience before you’re officially a Miamian. It doesn’t even matter if you don’t enjoy EDM music; it’s all worth it for that rooftop sunrise view.
 

Recess Saturdays

Blackbird Ordinary (address and info)
Brickell
When: Saturday
Recess is a hell of a lot better as an adult. The music doesn’t involve large purple dinosaurs, juice has booze in it, and no one is left out, at least not at this rare kind of place where folks from all walks of life can hang out together and party to hip-hop and reggae. Don’t forget to order a couple of London Sparrows.

Purdy Lounge

Chocolate Sundays

Purdy Lounge (address and info)
Miami Beach
When: Sunday
There’s something to be said about a place that is still relevant a decade and half later. Drinks are cheap, old-school hip-hop blasts from the speakers, and most importantly, there’s never a cover or a line.

E11EVEN

Bonus Spot

E11EVEN (address and info)
Downtown
When: Every night of the week
This is a place where many late nights turn into early mornings and vice versa 'cause it’s open 24/7. With scantily clad, flexible dancers, a daytime buffet, and a rooftop restaurant, it may be hard to leave.

1. Mokai 235 23rd St, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

Mokai's space is adorned with cherry red leather couches, Asian-ish lattice work on the walls, and plethora of delicious Asian-inspired eats.

2. Wall Lounge at the W Hotel 2201 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

A collab between The Opium Group (Opium, Prive, Mansion, SET) and the guys who helped create Mynt before moving on to Mokai and Quattro, the Wall, cloistered in the back of South Beach's new W Hotel, distills both teams' acumen into a boutique-sized club that makes no bones about the fact that it's small enough to already be VIP, and therefore doesn't need a VIP room -- the same logic Mini-Me uses to keep from jumping into a river with rocks in his pockets.

3. Bardot 3456 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Whether you’re making out on the couches, playing pool in the back, or dancing to the sounds of Pirate Stereo and Santiago Caballero on The Carpet, just make sure you leave with someone up for a little... um, well, you know...

4. EDITION 2901 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140 (Miami Beach)

This hotel has a bowling alley, one of the best restos around (Matador Room), a club, AND an indoor ice rink. Yup, you read that right.

5. Mansion Nightclub 1235 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

This Miami nightlife mainstay is one of the most over-the-top clubs in South Beach... and probably, like, everywhere else. State of the art sound system, multiple levels, and performances from artists like Britney Spears, Skrillex and more make this club the place to see and be seen.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
6. Bâoli 1906 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

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.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
7. Rec Room 1685 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

A subterraneous lounge with a retro, '70s kitch vibe, Rec Room is one of the few places with a lax door policy and a genuinely nice door staff. The relaxed attitude is reflected in the tracks as well: DJs spin LPs to crowds of 20- and 30-somethings, giving fair play time to everything from electronic to Hip Hop.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
8. Hyde South Beach 1701 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

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.

9. The Garret at Grand Central 697 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33136 (Downtown)

This hipster-style club within a club that’s actually a converted train station promises to take you back to the days when you rocked the peach fuzz without all that awkwardness.

10. STORY Nightclub 136 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

With a phenomenal sound system and concert lighting that rivals LIV Nightclub's, this 27,000-square-foot SoFi spot brings in the world’s best DJs -- from David Guetta to Kaskade to Cedric Gervais, and of course, Steve Aoki -- to light up the dance floors until the wee hours. 60 VIP tables are also on offer to accommodate spenders, with manicured bottle service accompanying the over-the-top circus setting.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
11. LIV Nightclub 4441 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

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.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
12. Club Space 34 NE 11th St, Miami, FL 33132 (Downtown)

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.

Previous Venue Next Venue Venue Description
13. Blackbird Ordinary 729 SW 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33130 (Brickell)

The Blackbird Ordinary offers wine, beer, shooters, and cocktails that are anything but its name. Get all that with tasty "street food" every Friday at the bar's weekly pop-up, Hidden Kitchen.

14. E11EVEN Miami 29 NE 11th St, Miami, FL 33132 (Downtown)

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.
