Be Scene: The Haute 5 Nightclubs in Miami

From luxury hotels with chic lounges to swanky piano bars graced by celebs, we’re pulling back the velvet rope on the most beautiful locales in Miami to gain access to at night.

If exclusivity could have a name, it would be Mynt. During its seven-year reign, this lounge has earned a reputation for the tightest door policy and most beautiful crowd in the Magic 

The list of celebrities that have passed through Mynt’s doors would fill a dozen Blackberries, but regulars include Ricky Martin, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, 
Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz, Mickey Rourke, Sean Penn, Jennifer Lopez, Colin Farrell, and Jamie Foxx-sans the paparazzi, as the lounge enforces a strict no-entry policy. Check out this exaggeratedly beautiful lounge on Thursday, Fridays, or Saturdays.

Mynt is located at 1921 Collins Ave. For more information, call (305) 695-1705.

Located inside the plush Fontainebleau, Wednesdays and Saturdays at LIV never disappoint. With more than 18,000 square feet of premier entertainment and top notch service, LIV aims to bring in the best artists to entertain their A-list crowd. Be ready to be amazed by the aesthetics located all around this stellar nightlife venue. LIV is open well after normal last call, so you can keep the vibe going well into the morning.

LIV is located at the Fontainebleau Hotel Miami, at 4441 Collins Ave. For more information, call (305) 538-2000.

Tucked inside the oceanfront W South Beach Hotel on Collins Avenue is yet another premier South Beach venue by Opium Group who brought us Mynt, Hotel Astor, Quattro, and most recently, Mokai. The Wall lounge is an exuberant option to meet with friends, colleagues, or to impress a date. Check it out on Thursdays or Fridays. An oversized gold sofa with room for 32 serves as this swanky club’s centerpiece, and its gold and black patterned walls, lacquered bar, Cappellini stools, and copper mesh ceiling provide the flash and glam.

Wall is located at the W Hotel South Beach, at 2201 Collins Ave. For more information, call (305) 938-3000.

Florida Room
The irresistible allure of mid-century Miami Beach nightlife returns to the city in The Florida Room at the Delano. A dazzling collaboration between Morgans Hotel Group and Kravitz Design, The Florida Room is a modern-day piano lounge inspired by a classic period of South Floridian glamour.

The focal point of The Florida Room is a Lucite grand piano, which has already been played by the likes of Lenny Kravitz and Jamie Foxx. Sparkling subtly beneath the smoky-bronze mirrored ceiling and custom-designed chandeliers, the piano sets the stage for live performances mid-evening and premier international DJ talent into the late night hours. Check out this musical locale on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The Florida Room is located at the Delano Hotel Miami Beach, at 1685 Collins Ave. For more information, call (305) 672-2000.

If you’re looking for high-energy, this is it. Louis is inspired by a royal Parisian palace, featuring color schemes of black lacquered surfaces juxtaposed with eye-popping flashes of bright fuchsia, hot pinks, and canary yellow. French antiques are modernized with brilliant, high gloss facades, while modern lighting fixtures are coupled with vintage crystals and traditional shades. Check out this exclusive and eclectic venue on Tuesdays where you’re sure to spot a celeb or two.

Louis is located at the Gansevoort South Beach, at 2377 Collins Ave. For more information, call (305) 604-1000.
