Find the answers to your Miami nightlife questions
Miami is known for having some of the best nightlife in the world. It has huge clubs holding thousands of people, famous DJs flying in from around the world to play at them and the city hosting the yearly Miami Music Conference in March, known as the opening party for the season of clubbing. People arrive expecting to party with sexy models and celebrities and Miami does not disappoint. Here we answer some of the top questions about going clubbing in Miami
I’m looking for a more stylish, upscale club. Where can I go?
Back in South Beach, Pearl nightclub in Nikki Beach at 1st and Ocean is both a restaurant and club and there is always a glamorous crowd to be found partying there, especially on a Sunday night. Mynt on 18th and Collins and The Wall at the W Hotel are both small lounges with no dance floor, but are considered some of the most exclusive clubs in South Beach.
What’s it typically cost to go out to an upscale club?
All clubs in Miami offer bottle service. This is when you have your own private table in a VIP section. It waives your cover charge, and will get everyone in your party into the club. Bottle service includes your chosen bottles of alcohol, juice mixers and ice, and a place for only you and your friends to hang out with your very own hostess looking after you. The average bottle price starts at $350 - $400 and goes all the way up to over $10,000. The club quotes you a price that does not include tax (7.5%) and gratuity (anywhere between 18-20%), so try and ask for the total price in advance.
Bottle service is fun but an expensive way to party, and if you are in a bigger group the clubs will ask you to purchase more alcohol. Typically 1-4 people are asked to buy 2 bottles, any more people than that and you will have to purchase more.
I typically listen to Hip-Hop music, is that what I should expect to hear in the clubs too?
Are there any places to listen to rock music, or watch bands play live?
What’s the dress code policy at nightclubs for guys? Can I wear jeans and tennis shoes?
How do women dress at the clubs?
Is there any way to avoid the lines at some of the clubs?
Contacting club promoters can help as they can get you on their guest list and walk you in. This means getting there at a certain time and dressing as we mentioned earlier. No promoter can help you get in if you do not look the part.
Groups of girls can usually catch the doorman’s eye. Clubs like groups of sexy girls so they will usually allow you straight in. Don’t forget to say thank you!
Guys or couples who don’t want to pay for bottle service can get in faster by tipping the doorman.
Just remember, turn up early, dress the part, and you may get lucky and get to skip the line.
Are there any underage clubs in Miami?
Miami is an adult playground and anyone 21 years or older is welcome in the bars and clubs. If you have come to experience the fantastic Miami nightlife during your vacation, we hope we have helped answer your questions for your night out, so go enjoy yourselves and have a great night!
