Best Places for Nightlife in Miami
1. Lincoln Road
Stroll along the famous shopping street of Miami packed with bars & restaurants.
2. Ocean Drive
Famous for its neon lights, 80s feel, restaurants and popular bars like VooDoo, Clevelander and Mangos.
Great Italian restaurant with afforable dishes and drinks, especially before going clubbing.
Voted best restaurant in Miami with incredible dishes that will satisfy every taste-bud, make sure to order a slice of Ootoro sashimi.
Bagatelle is a supper-club that moves from being a restaurant to a full blown after-dinner-party, go on Tuesday evening.
Brand new rooftop bar on the new EAST hotel building with some of the best views of downtown Miami.
Start off your night with a stroll through the neon lit streets of Ocean Drive and pickup a few drinks at the brand new VooDoo rooftop bar with great views of the street level or pay a visit to the famous Clevelander bar.
Large bar with local people and good music, this is a great secret place to meet people but go extremely early, lineups are very long.
Next door to Bodega you'll find Rickys, my favorite bar in Miami with lots of fun arcades and indoor restaurant, large bar, amazing band and great local people. A must-visit jam in Miami.
9. Club Space
Massive nightclub downtown Miami with often popular EDM DJs playing on Fridays and Saturdays.
10. LIV Nightclub
Considered the best nightclub in Miami with its large dome dance floor, many celebrities and lots of sexy people but very pricey.
11. Hyde Beach
We ended up celebrating New Year's here, upscale club with lots of good looking people.
The most ridiculous nightclub-stripclub in Miami, this place has everything, money cannons, sexy ladies and shows on stage, this place is especially pricey but an insane way to end your night.
Next grab dinner at Sylvanos for some great afforable Italian dishes, try to avoid the super touristy Ocean Drive & Lincoln Road if you can. Alternatively, drop by NaiYaRa, voted the best restaurant in Miami with some of the most amazing dishes I've ever tasted.
For the most ridiculous dinner party make resevervations at Bagatelle Tuesdays, which turns into a mad party after the dinner service. Watch my video above to get a good impression of the atmosphere. If you are considering a big night out in Miami with a group of friends make sure to contact my buddy Dan at AlphaLifestyle, Dan is the guru of Miami and will hook you up with great deals, just tell him Reformatt sent you.
End your night at one of the most popular nightclubs in the USA; LIV for its gigantic dome dance floor. If you still have energy after all these parties than drop by e11even, the most outrageous nightclub in town but keep in mind that these places are very expensive so come prepared. Unless you do not want to plan out all the logistics, I recommend you join the Miami Party Crawl for just $74 USD on South Beach.
