Exciting places for great Miami nightlife

Be chic in Downtown Miami and Brickell

Nestled between condominiums and office buildings, these two neighborhoods, separated by the Miami River, offer plenty of nightlife options. The neighborhood is a meeting place for young professionals. This vibe makes downtown Miami and Brickell a hip place for partiers. In this area, you can enjoy a happy hour special in Area 31, hit the hip local spot Lostboy, and then hit the funky E 11 EVEN nightclub.

Letting go in South Beach

South Beach is the party hub in Miami. This is ground zero for clubbers as this area is lined with many mega-clubs that are open seven nights a week. The South Beach scene is full of international DJs, pop stars, and celebrities throwing VIP parties in its many nightly entertainment venues. In South Beach you can dance in the megaclub LIV, enjoy a cocktail in the bodega or chill out in Sweet Liberty.

Feel romantic on a sunset cruise

The sunsets in the Miami area are breathtaking and quite romantic. A great way to start your evening is to watch the phenomenal sunset from a cruise. On the cruise, you can snap photos of the spectacular Miami skyline and cruise through landmarks like Biscayne Bay, Port of Miami, and Millionaire’s Row, and more.

Immerse yourself in Miami’s Miami jazz scene

Miami has a vibrant jazz music scene. If your nightlife is more of a live jazz concert than a dance club, then Ball & Chain is a great show for you. At Le Chat Noir, you can drink wine and nibble on cheese while enjoying the live music. On the last Friday of the month at 8:00 p.m., North Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art hosts free jazz concerts in the square.

Enjoy the colorful Art Deco district

This district is steeped in history, brimming with over 800 Art Deco buildings. As you stroll down Ocean Drive you will notice the fabulous pastel colored architecture all around. When the sun goes down, the excitement rises in this neighborhood. Here you can chill with a cocktail by the pool on the roof of the Highbar or dance all night in the Story, where legendary DJs and famous artists like Justin Bieber have performed.
