A Miami Nightclub for Every Occasion – 2018 Edition!

wall-miami

Wall – This is the perfect venue for all of you trying to be up close and intimate with the DJ, they are literally within a hands reach from you, if you can make it through the crazy crowd of Miami locals. Famed for their Tuesday night Brazilian Favela parties, you can get a taste of Miami’s sin and fun here.

The Downside: Their table service is great… unless you’re put in one of the tables in the front of the club, if you are here you are not fully in the crowd and don’t get to experience the real insanity.

LIV – From the second you walk into this world famous hot spot, you will feel like a celeb and most like be dancing the night away right next to them. When you look down at the crowd from the top of their lavish staircase and see thousands of people partying and popping bottles, all your inhibitions will melt away. They also just went through a multi-million dollar renovation ensuring that you will have the most up to date tech and LED lights for the perfect snaps!

The Downside: Basically, no matter what time you get there you will be 6 feet deep in a crowd of people trying to talk to the same bouncer.

rockwell miami

Rockwell – Opened by famed nightclub manager Chris Paciello, this new hotspot on Washington Ave opened during Art Basel week of 2016 and has been making waves since. This smaller scale lounge/club is known for its hip hop night on Mondays, and has seen celebs like Khaled, Rick Ross, Lenny Kravitz, and many more. The layout of the club is reminiscent of a New York lounge mixed with some Miami energy, plus new and old school hip hop to satiate every group! The ceiling is littered with neon lights, the bottle girls are beautiful, wearing next to nothing and carrying bottles topped with sparklers parading through the crowds like your very own VIP show.

The Downside: You need to be either model status, or have the best connections in the world because the doorman that holds the clipboard and entrance is usually an asshole.

eleven

11even – Put your cameras away, and get your wallets out. It’s time to eat, drink, dance, and see some titties. This also happens to be our cities first 24 hour club, so you can do this in 20,000sq feet of space at any time of day you please! We recommend this as an afterhours club, drink the night away in the SoFlo area of your choice and then lose your inhibitions here until the sun comes up.

The Downside: Sorry ladies, the dancers are for the boys, not a male stripper in sight. If you are getting a table for a specific DJ you want to see make sure it is in the pit or dancefloor, you can’t see much from the outer surrounding tables.

story miami

Story – Owned by the same people as LIV it’s no surprise that this venue has the best line up of any club here. Not only will names like The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Tiesto spinning here regularly blow you away, but their light shows will have you tripping without the molly. This massive 27,000- square- foot space is different than many of the Miami clubs because of its vast size, there are lots of areas to hang out without being thrown around like a rag doll in the crowd. The hanging disco balls, complement the circus-style setting perfectly, so you can let loose. In the words of Britney Spears all eyes on you in the center of the ring!

The Downside: You will most likely have to take a cab from almost anywhere because Story is in SoFi and not surrounded by other clubs, so no chance of bar hopping here. BUT they do have Big Pink, the iconic Miami staple late night eatery for all your drunk munchie needs.

basement

Basement – Ice skating, bowling, and clubbing, Oh My! You can find these activities in one convenient location on the beach. Ladies, don’t forget to go on Wednesday night to partake for free.

The Downside: It is a little bit hard to find as it is literally in the basement of the Edition hotel, so you must go through a bit to get there but, so worth it!

doheny

Doheny Room – Situated inside of the famed Delano Hotel, Los Angeles’ hotspot Doheny Room has come to Miami. They take the chic Phillipe Stark decor and incorporate it into the design of their stylish and sophisticated new hotspot. They describe themselves as the “anti-club” playlist with classic, Indie rock, 80’s jams, and old school hip hop flow effortlessly through the speakers. They have affordable tables that aren’t burning a hole in your wallet, and a small loungey vibe with all the fixings of a Miami nightclub.

The Downside: Unlike almost every other place in Miami, this bar closes at 2AM instead of the typical 5AM, so plan this as a stop on your night and not your entire plan.

mynt-dancers

Mynt – Either you’re a business man with a night off, or a hot frat boy from UM with a trustfund and daddys credit card, this is the place to ball out. With millions spent on yearly renovations, you will never get tired of this club no matter how many times you go.

The Downside: Unless you are purchasing a table, these door men are not very friendly and will leave you out in the cold. We would definitely recommend having BTK reserve you a table to ensure a successful night.

space

Space – They say you haven’t lived until you see the sunrise from this 15+ year old legendary EDM scene. Open after hours Space is definitely somewhere we suggest on your trip to Miami, although we do suggest showing up at around 3 or 4AM, almost every local has been there at least once. So grab your glowsticks, pick your vice of the night, and rave until the afternoon. P.S. On Heat game nights, we love to people watch all you walk of shamers.

The Downside: It is really grimy, and savage, not what you would be used to in an average Miami club. Then again, this is definitely not your average SoFlo club, think way more drugs, less class, and all of the fun.

hyde beach

Hyde Beach – Bikinis. Katsuya. Champagne showers. Do we have your attention yet? SBE has done it yet again, they have brought the West Coast magic to Miami to provide us with one of the few places where you can drink all day, and keep it going throughout the night. Their name got them started but they have branded themselves by their awesome weekend pool parties. They go all out to ensure you have the best time and forget where you are. The pitchers of signature cocktails will make your taste buds explode while getting you nice and drunk along the way. Embrace the endless amounts of champagne being sprayed at you, wash it off in the pool, and prepare yourself for dancing the night away without ever having to go anywhere.

The Downside: If you’re coming with a group you will probably need some kind of bottle service, the reason why it is a downside is because of the pricing, it will cost quite a bit, but your ratchet memories will last forever.

Our BTK tips to surviving Los Angeles!

Don’t:

Be embarrassed by your love of celebrities, take advantage of all the celeb spotting fun. We tried the TMZ tour this time, and it was wonderfully cheesy. The open-air bus is the ultimate sighting machine, the guide tells stories, makes jokes, sings songs, and includes you in on every part of this interactive tour.

TMZ

Do:

Try and see one of your favorite shows live in person… for free! Whether it is Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen, Jeopardy or so many others this is your opportunity to be part of the audience that you are so used to watching from home!

Don’t:

Skip the Venice Beach Boardwalk, it is one of the coolest areas to see, basically the “hippie” part of LA, real hippie though, not skinny white girls on a vegan/yoga diet ”hippie”. This area is always buzzing with street performers hyping up their crowds, people working on their fitness in Muscle Beach, graffiti artist leaving their mark on the beach, and tons of vendors selling      unique handmade crafts. Plus they have a lot of easily accessible weed here for all of your over 21’s!

venice venice walk

Do:

go to 1OAK for a night that is one of a kind, plus this place goes down in hip-hop history.

Don’t:

spend too much time at the Santa Monica Pier. Santa Monica itself is very beautiful with tons of cute boutique shops, delicious restaurants, and views of the ocean that are awe-inspiring, but the pier is run down, overcrowded, and expensive. Unless you’re going with kids that are interested in the rides, skip it.

Do:

Take the Warner Brothers Studio Tour if you are a huge TV and movie buff. You get to discover 110 acres of studios, backlots, props, and everything that the fangirl in you would melt for. They have something for everyone of very generation here. Set your eyes on the different Batmobiles throughout the DC franchise, become a wizard like Harry Potter, or sit on the set of one of the most famous shows, FRIENDS and enjoy a   coffee at Central Perk to name a few.

Don’t:

miss out on a walk, or bar hopping excursion through the Sunset Strip, with Whiskey Go Go, The Viper Room, The Roxy, and more being there it has many personalities on its 1.5 mile stretch and is home to the beginning of some of the coolest music careers in history.

Do:

go and see the rooftop bar, Spire 73 at the Intercontinental in Downtown Los Angeles, they have the highest place to grab a drink on the western hemisphere giving you views for days!

rooftop

Do:

Take a walk through all the major LA streets for your dose of celebrity life. Granted, this may be more of a window shopping type thing unless you’re making serious money moves, in the words of Cardi B! So, explore the glam in Hollywood Blvd, and spend your day as a “Pretty Woman” on Rodeo Drive, if you don’t, BIG.. MISTAKE, BIG.. HUGE.

Don’t:

forget to find your favorite celebrities star on the Walk of Fame.

 Do:

Take a drive up to Nobu Malibu while watching a west coast Sunset and  Splurge on at least one of your meals. Los Angeles, or California more generally is home to some of the most famous and drool worthy restaurants in the world. We have tons of recommendations but it would take a page full just to list them so you’ll have to ask and find out!

Don’t:

underestimate that L.A. traffic, it is a very real thing. Plan and leave extra time for everything because it will hit you no matter the time of day or part of town you’re out.

Do:

go experience a game at the Staples Center, either in the seats or in their ultra chic, Hyde lounge located in the arena, where you can pop bottles and snack on some apps while watching some of the greatest franchises in history.

Don’t:

try to drive up to the Hollywood sign, that is not a thing. Very illegal actually, but if you have the stamina and endurance you can make it up the 8 mile walk to the sign and die happily with those views of LA.
