Perhaps the Magic City is better known for its pristine Miami beaches or its wild South Beach clubs, but strip clubs in Miami have gained major popularity. Adding to the excitement is the talented crop of exotic dancers whose acrobatic moves rival anything you'll see on the dance floor. Think you know Miami nightlife? It's time you explored the other Miami clubs that have changed the late-night game, pole by pole and twerk by twerk.
Best strip clubs in Miami
Options abound at this spacious club with about seven stages and female dancers of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. Come early and you might be disappointed as it's mostly a late-night crowd that visits Scarlett's—things don't really get going until after 2am and don't wind down until 8am. There's a $20 cover at the door but groups who purchase bottles can often avoid the fee. It's a casual spot but be wary of the dress code: only those in proper attire (dress shoes and pants for men) will be allowed in.
This up-and-coming hot spot in South Beach is already making waves. Even R&B singer Trey Songz has put in a surprise appearance. In this combined sports bar and strip club the dancers aren’t nude (due to local regulations), and they don’t need to be: Many are beautiful talents from King of Diamonds and already well known. Whether you want to smoke the hookah or watch football or basketball on one of the many TVs, the club offers areas to do both inside and outside. Plus, it has a secret back room where guests can buy bottle service, listen to the DJ and enjoy a private dance.
Miami's most popular male strip club lives up to the hype: the men are hot, the dance moves on point (expect some Magic Mike-style action) and the crowds friendly. Lap dances are available off and on the stage (perfect for a bachelorette party) and tend to be more fun and playful than rowdy and raunchy. Beyond the beautiful bods, LaBare offers groups of ladies added incentives, such as a complimentary bottle of champagne when you celebrate your birthday at the club. The club also has a second location in Fort Lauderdale.
With world-class exotic dancing talents swinging from ceilings, dropping to poles and sliding into splits, King of Diamonds (or KOD as the usuals call it) regularly outdoes the field. A full bar offers top-shelf liquor like Hennessey, Cîroc and Crown Royal; the menu brings the likes of satisfying quesadillas, chicken, burgers, steak and shrimp. When you visit, don’t be surprised to come across Rick Ross and other celebs.
Its name is not hyperbole—Wonderland is a place full of wondrous surprises. It's not unusual to see ladies getting lap dances from other women (you'll even see them chatting each other up sometimes) or to find co-ed groups gathered around one of the many big-screen TVs to watch a title boxing match or basketball game. It's not just about the exotic dancers here, although they are stunning and talented. Admission is free on Tuesday nights when you sign up online.
Tootsie's has it all, from a 400-square-foot mainstage to private rooms to a full-service restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner (regulars swear by Tootsie’s lemon pepper chicken wings). The former warehouse space is one of the largest gentlemen’s clubs in Miami and nearly every inch of this colossal venue is covered in plush red velvet. The upstairs area is best suited for customers interested in a quiet meal (it’s free to enter before 7pm) while the large main area is busy and bustling. The upside to sticking with the crowds? You won’t feel pressured to splurge on a lap dance. Tootsie’s is around the corner from a church, but nobody judges you in Miami.
Floppy Rooster is Florida’s only all-nude gay strip club. And to be certain, not all the roosters in the room will be floppy after eyeing the beefcakes on display. Whether you like twinks, muscle men, frat boys, bears or lanky dudes, there’s a man here you’ll welcome onto your lap completely. Not only are they all studs, most have Magic Mike-like dance moves, and all are hung like donkeys. If you want to take it up a notch, get the VIP treatment—either a booth for 15 of your besties or a private room for solo time with your new dream guy for an hour. A friction dance is a mere 10 bones! This joint is also perfect for those who had one too many bloody Marys on their flight in—it’s right by the airport.
Expect to rub elbows and other body parts with more than just the dancers at the quaint, boutique-like establishment, especially on weekend nights when it draws the largest crowds. A full kitchen and bar provide your pick of cocktails, food. The real reason you're here: the chance to appreciate some of the city’s most talented dancers who regularly break it down to songs by Miami’s Uncle Luke— the rapper famous for the best booty-shaking music there is.
The state-of-the-art sports and adult entertainment complex is among the most versatile in the city: it will host your bachelor party, divorce party or corporate meeting. In part, it’s the friendly service and inexpensive drinks that make this place appealing to all types of crowds. An even bigger draw is the range in facilities, including six stages across three levels, as well as VIP areas and a sports lounge. In the heart of Hallandale Beach, Cheetah also has sister clubs Cheetah Palm Beach and Cheetah Pompano Beach.
Offering a valet and corporate-looking exterior (don’t let that fool you), Dean’s hosts bachelor parties for those celebrating their last night being single and a VIP network for loyal customers. While watching talented, sexy dancers, you can enjoy happy hour daily from 3 to 8 pm. One of the most sought-after strip clubs in Miami, it sold recently for more than $23.5 million to new owners who plan to redevelop the 2.2 acres of land it sits on.
