The most prevalent form of Miami Beach nightlife is nightclubs. These clubs attract the biggest DJs on the planet and the hottest celebrities to dance the night away. While some clubs stand the test of time, nightclubs in Miami Beach can come and go as quickly as the latest fashion trends. This is why it pays to do a little research before your trip to Miami.

Clubs in Miami are their own breed of nightlife. One way to secure entry is to call ahead and reserve a table and bottle service. This way, you won't have to wait at the door and pay a hefty entrance fee. If bottle service isn't in your budget, be prepared to wait in a lengthy line. While clubs come and go quickly in Miami, some staples include Mansion and Nikki Beach .


Another form of Miami Beach nightlife is lounges. For the nights when you would rather sit by a pool than hit the dance floor, lounges are the perfect solution. They still require a similar dress code as nightclubs, but offer a more relaxed environment. You are just as likely to see celebrities at these lounges as at the biggest clubs.

Just like clubs, it can pay to put your name on a list for lounges. This is especially true on the weekends when all of Miami nightlife can get crowded. If you're interested in checking out the beautiful people of Miami, check out lounges such as the pool at the Delano and the pool at the Sagamore .

Lincoln Road

Another hotspot for Miami Beach nightlife is Lincoln Road. This pedestrianized road is great for shopping during the day, but takes on a different atmosphere by night. It is perfect for a late night dinner, some cocktails, and people watching. As the hours pass, jazz clubs fill up and some people head off to the clubs while others linger in cocktail bars.

Visitors looking for concentrated nightlife should check out Lincoln Road. Between the restaurants, bars, and music venues there is always something going on during any night of the week. Some of the best spots on Lincoln Road include Gemma Lounge and Eno's Wine Bar .


For the nights where you don't want to hit the club scene, that doesn't mean you have to stay home either. Miami is also known for its fantastic restaurants, and these restaurants offer just as much of a celebrity culture as the nightclubs. If you're looking for a memorable meal, check out Miami popular restaurants including Prime 112 or Joe's Stone Crab .
