From Cuban Coffee to 200 Types of Beer-The Top 5 Miami Nightlife Hotspots

Miami’s nightlife is known worldwide for its extravagance, exclusiveness, and extreme excitement.  It is impossible to say exactly what the best hotspots are, as they are consistently shifting. 

Yes, much like Los Angeles, there seems to be a new “it” club weekly in the Miami nightlife scene.  Just like luxury rental cars, there is a desire to try the next best thing in the club scene, yet there are still Miami clubs that remain list-toppers through it all, like the following, who offer something for all tastes:

    •    The Wall at W Hotel South Beach
    •    LIV at Fontainebleau Hotel South Beach
    •    The Florida Room, Delano Hotel South Beach
    •    Abraxas South Beach
    •    Bongo’s Cuban Café, Owned by Gloria Estefan

Wall Lounge W Hotel South Beach

The Wall, W Hotel.  Located inside the new W Hotel South Beach luxury hotel, this steamy Miami nightclub is still a must on many a celeb’s list of faves.  Some of the best DJ’s from around the country provide pulse-racing entertainment for partygoers and guests of this Oceanfront luxury hotel.  Note that the majority of the music throbbing from the speakers is hip-hop, and while the attire is causal, the labels are definitely designer.  An exotic or luxury rental car is recommended for this see and be seen club, and prepare to be judged!

Ask Imagine: Luxury Hotel Vs Standard Hotel

Dear Imagine Lifestyles,

I travel infrequently, and often stay at the Holiday Inn or the Hilton Double Tree.  I find these places to be clean and sufficient, and am curious what the difference is between a standard hotel and a luxury hotel?  I know that compared to a Motel 6 or other rattrap the Hilton is pretty much a luxury hotel.  What defines a 5-star hotel and am I missing out?  Is it just another way to separate people from their money just for a label or place to sleep?  I am curious.

Sincerely,
Bill, New York

Hello Kyle,

Thank you for being a fan of our website and blog, we appreciate that.  We also appreciate that you have chosen us for advice on a luxury Mansion rental Miami! 

I will recommend either Pinetree Drive Mediterranean mansion, or a luxury hotel condo rental at the W Hotel South Beach or Setai South Beach.  Both luxury hotels Miami offer 2 bedroom and 4 bedroom condos, and are ideally located on the strip where the best shopping, international dining and beaches are.

Ask Imagine: Labor Day Residence Rental Miami

Dear Imagine Lifestyles,

I will be in Miami for a week to celebrate Labor Day with a group of friends.  I do not think a traditional luxury hotel will suffice, and would prefer a residence rental Miami style to ensure that all of my guests are comfortable.  What luxury hotel also offers residence or condo rentals?

  I would also prefer that it be located within proximity of South Beach’s nightclubs, restaurants, shopping and hot spots. 
 

 

Thanks,

Scott, Manhattan

South Florida Hotel Industry on the Upswing

It seems that South Florida has something to feel good about, other than the constant sunshine and marbled Atlantic coastline!  The local hotel industry is reporting increases for the first time in a while, which should help to bolster the economy.

The economic downturn, depression, however you prefer to label the financial catastrophe that has rocked the entire globe and changed so many lives seems to be retreating somewhat.  The South Florida Business Journal has reported that local hoteliers are experiencing higher occupancy rates, figures that are surely needed.

Recent national events deserve a nod of gratitude for this increase, such as the Pro Bowl, Super Bowl, Food Network’s South Beach Food & Wine Festival, FASHIONmiami and other luxury events that attract guests to our sandy shores and into our plethora of hotels, residences and luxury condos.

Ask Imagine: Concierge Concerns

Dear Imagine Lifestyles,

I will be coming to South Beach soon for a business trip, and assume I will be left to my own devices often.  I am free to stay where I please and would really like a luxury accommodation with a concierge who is knowledgeable of Miami.  I feel that the last time I visited I missed out on much of what Miami has to offer.  Do you have any suggestions?
