There are plenty of places to party in Miami, but when it comes to the most fashionably crème de la crème, there are only a few that run center stage. For the ultimate night out with VIP seating, A-list elbow rubbing, and hard-to-get-through velvet rope settings, here are the top five best nightclubs to strive for.
1 LIV at Fontainebleau Miami
Inside the historic Fontainebleau, where greats like Frank Sinatra used to play, there’s LIV, the ultra sexy exclusive lounge mixed into a vibrant, celebrity packed nightclub. Noted as the model nightspot for diverse musical genius playing four nights in a row and complimented by some of the most beautiful people in the world, this lavish space is one-a-kind with privates skyboxes and three elaborate bars to add.

The South of Fifth Street is no stranger to the elite crowd, and the 27,000 square foot Story nightclub fits in perfectly with its modern, sexy circus theme. Fully furnished with advanced Infinite Hybrid Sound System and impeccable lighting found only in concert-style venues, this space is stylishly unique. Their premium bottle service is offered with 60 VIP tables, but guests can also order cocktails from any of the five full-service bars.

3 WALL at W South Beach
While other nightclubs offer massive layouts to get lost in, WALL at W South Beach prefers to keep its parties small inside its alluring intimate space. With its signature gold and black decor, distinguished gold leather couches, and the back bar that shines with LED backlit picture fames, this nightclub is all out chic, especially with the 35-inch spherical Raimond chandelier, that has replaced the original disco ball hanging in the center of the room.

With world renowned DJs and signature cirque de Mansion acrobats, there’s a reason why Grade A celebrities like Jay-Z choose Mansion nightclub for their party destination of choice. Once a previous theatre, the custom ceiling is one of the noted attributes of this venue, allowing for three different illuminating effects, along with an original chandelier that dates back to the 30s. While the main room is where the dancing takes place, the second floor in the open mezzanine section provides the ultimate VIP experience with leather sofas, beds, and private bar.
1235 Washington Avenue (305) 695-8411
As a nightclub that shines on only allowing the most “famous and fabulous” crowd, they not only permit paparazzi inside, but they’ve also earned a reputation for the “tightest door policy” for most in the city. Many A-list celebrities can be found sipping champagne behind the velvet rope here, but its not just the photographer turn-away that makes this club sought out. Staying true to keeping its space up-to-date, Mynt renovates every summer, with the latest touch up costing about $1.2 million just to ensure that its fabulous guests get the most out of their experience.
