February 2020: Miami Music Week is a few short weeks away, and while the epic Ultra fest is always a solid option (especially since it’s making a return to Bayfront Park this year), most savvy club kids know it’s all about the after-parties—and Miami definitely does not disappoint in that area. While we’ve had to say goodbye to two longtime nightlife institutions, Purdy Lounge and the Electric Pickle, the city has fortunately birthed a few new options in their stead. Read on for our new picks, from a reggaetonistas dream club to a massive, multi-level rave playground.
Locals are quick to remind folks that there’s much more to this city than the best clubs in Miami. And—sure—that’s true. But there’s a reason so many folks talk about our clubs: they’re pretty sweet. Some are downright amazing too. And, for better or worse, nightclubs are still a big part of Miami’s identity. So, yes, explore the best museums in Miami, make your way to the best Miami attractions and chow down on the best Cuban sandwich along the way. But at the end of the night, find a dance floor. Also, a quick tip: most of these clubs won’t hit their stride until well after midnight, so take a nap and grab a coffee.
