Have a wild night out at these best strip clubs in Miami

Miami’s best strip clubs prove that we are definitively the booty-shaking capital of the world

By Ryan Pfeffer

September 2019: Miami’s sheer abundance of strip clubs—from full-nude to male cabarets—makes maintaining this particular list of utmost importance. Since our last update, hip-hop themed VLive Miami on South Beach sadly shuttered its doors for good. Luckily, another joint along the Miami River has emerged as a clear fan favorite, boasting the rare combination of inexpensive drinks, a discrete location and top-notch talent. Read on find out what else is new when it comes to Miami’s best strip clubs.

Strip clubs in Miami are serious business and part of this city’s identity. They go hand in hand with the 305’s proud history of 2 Live Crew and Miami Bass. Down here, dancers don’t just dance—they perform, swinging from ceilings and twerking with literal fire. The stakes are high, the competition is fierce and it is a sight to see. Luckily, there are no shortage of places to witness such things. So if you want a comprehensive tour of Miami nightlife, don’t just stick to the South Beach clubs and the best bars in Miami. No, if you want to see the 305 in all of its down and dirty booty-shaking glory, then you’ve got to hit up a strip club.

1. E11even

Nightlife Clubs Park West

What is it? So, E11even is technically not a strip club. But the 24/7 nightlife juggernaut has enough characteristics of a strip club that it's also technically not not a strip club. For example, there are topless dancers—many of them—swinging around on poles, collecting dollar bills in thongs that leave little to the imagination. Private dances are available upstairs too.

Why go? Because E11even is much more than a strip club thanks to huge music bookings, crazy lights and live aerial acrobatics.

2. Scarlett’s Cabaret

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs

What is it? Seven stages of some serious twerking talent. The late night crowd here is strong on the weekends (thanks to the 8am closing time on Friday and Saturday). Brace for what’s normally a $20 cover fee at the door and a dress code that forbids shorts and sandals for dudes.

Why go? Every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday certain bottles are $150—which is actually a good deal for strip clubs

3. Tootsie’s Cabaret

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs Miami

What is it? A classic Miami strip joint that’s known to serve some surprisingly tasty food. Tootsie’s features a full-service restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner (Rick Ross apparently loves their lemon pepper wings). The club itself is absolutely huge and also quite impressive with four bars, over 300 TVs and a 400-square-foot main stage.

Why go? $5.95 prime rib every Monday, if you’re brave enough.

4. Cheetah Gentleman’s Club

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs

What is it? Strip club aficionados have been going to Cheetah for years. The sizable club has six stages, three different levels, a cigar selection and—of course—a small army of talented dancers.

Why go? Get this: the club does free lunch every day from 11:30am to 3pm.

5. Gold Rush Cabaret

Nightlife Cabaret and burlesque Little River

What is it? The second coming of an infamous Miami strip club that used to live in Downtown. Gold Rush 2.0 offers only a small sampling of the mayhem that used to go down there, but this club still knows how to party.

Why go? The weekly Taco and tequila Tuesdays offers up $5 tacos and $3 shots of tequila all night long.

6. LaBare

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs Doral

What is it? A strip club where the fellas get on stage and shake it for some cash. This place is a favorite for bachelorette parties or anyone trying to bring their Magic Mike fantasies to life.

Why go? LaBare offers some not-too-shabby party packages for groups of four to seven guests, and all parties receive a bottle of free house champagne just for showing up.

7. G5ive Miami

Nightlife Cabaret and burlesque Miami

What is it? You will see some insane things at G5ive, where the dancers perform wild stunts on a nightly basis. It gets buts here, and if you want a night that feels like a rap video, well, this might be your best bet.

Why go? One time we saw a video from G5ive where a dancer shot fire from a, uh, certain area.

8. Bellas Cabaret

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs Hialeah

What is it? A cabaret on Miami Rivers that hits just the right balance between classy and divey.

Why go? Devotees rave about the laid back vibes, nice looking (fully nude) women, cheaper drinks and substantial cigar menu. Plus, Pink Pussycat and Booby Trap are right next door, meaning you’re bound to find something you like.

9. The Office

Nightlife Strip bars and clubs Doral

What is it? A slightly smaller strip club, but this place still has a full kitchen and bar. Things get pretty cozy on weekend nights, when the place usually gets packed with a standing room only crowd.

Why go? It’s only a ten-minute drive from Hard Rock Stadium if your crew is trying to get rowdy after watching the Dolphins lose.
