The Gale's retro basement lounge will push it with high effectiveness, as the song goes, by having Salt-N-Pepa's Spinderella (wo)man the turntables tonight. And just to ensure that everyone gets The Message that they're awesome at getting throwback DJs, they're locking down Grandmaster Flash to spin Saturday.
1. Rec Room
1685 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
A subterraneous lounge with a retro, '70s kitch vibe. Floor-to-ceiling shelves hold over 3,000 vinyl records, but they'r not just decor -- DJs spin LPs to crowds of 20- and 30-somethings, giving fair play time to everything from electronic to Hip Hop. Rec Room is one of the few places with a lax door policy and a genuinely nice door staff. Stress less, dance more.
