Miami Nightlife: TOP 12 Bars & Nightclubs

Published on Feb. 7, 2017 by

Miami has the most vibrant bars & best nightclubs in the USA. This is my ultimate Miami nightlife guide featuring the Top 12 bars & nightclubs which I carefully selected including Sugar, E11EVEN, LIV, Ora Nightclub, Ricky's, Bodega and the outrageous pool parties with wild American girls.

Tips & Advice
  • Why: Most vibrant nightlife in the USA
  • Last Call: Big clubs close at 5:00am, E11EVEN is 24/7
  • Accomodation: Stay either downtown Miami or South Beach (high budget required)
  • Tips: ID control is strict in Miami, in some cases you will be required to show your passport

For this Miami nightlife guide I created a detailed map listing all the top places in town so you can easily navigate your way around. Also, the places are listed from the early evening until the late hours.

  • 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.

  • 3. Sylvanos

    Great Italian restaurant with afforable dishes and drinks, especially before going clubbing.

  • 4. NiaYaRa

    Voted best restaurant in Miami with incredible dishes that will satisfy every taste-bud, make sure to order a slice of Ootoro sashimi.

  • 5. Bagatelle Tuesdays

    Bagatelle is a supper-club that moves from being a restaurant to a full blown after-dinner-party.

  • 6. Sugar

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 9. Ora Nightclub

    Another brand-new nightclub in Miami, upscale with great music. A solid spot for a party.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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 send you.

When midnight hits drop by the epic local bars Bodega & Ricky's (next door) or take a short Uber ride to downtown Miami for the most epic rooftop bar; Sugar on top the EAST hotel.

End your night at one of the most popular nightclubs in the USA; LIV for its gigantic dome dance floor, alternatively check out the brand-new ORA nightclub. 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.
