  • 6. Sugar

    Brand new rooftop bar on the new EAST hotel building with some of the best views of downtown Miami. (map)

  • 7. Bodega

    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. (map)

  • 8. Rickys

    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. (map)

    Massive nightclub downtown Miami with often popular EDM DJs playing on Fridays and Saturdays. (map)

    Considered the best nightclub in Miami with its large dome dance floor, many celebrities and lots of sexy people but very pricey. (map)

    We ended up celebrating New Year's here, upscale club with lots of good looking people. (map)

  • 12. E11EVEN

    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. (map)

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.

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.

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 Pub Crawl for just $30 USD on South Beach.
