South Beach

Great nightlife, beautiful people, exotic foods, great shopping..... lets go to South Beach! Stay in a hotel located inbetween most of the nightlife and you won't even have to rent a car! (Chances are you shouldn't be driving anyways). Stay between the 5th and 14th blocks on Ocean, fly into MIA and pay the $32 cab fare and enjoy your stay! On my last trip here I did notice a huge increase in college kids and an overall cheapening of the scene. I hope this is not a trend that continues. Lets keep this place for the fashionable and the tasteful, even if it is materialistic. South Beach also offers an exciting number of events year round, my favorites are the huge Hip-Hop scene during Memioral Day weekend and the forever fun Winter Music Conference, this South Beach-exclusive venue is surrounding by so many amazing parties, you won't have time to sleep!!

Exotic people!

Sex appeal is a universal appeal, and in any language South Beach's girls (and guys, I suppose, for the ladies) are the hottest around. You will see some of the most exotic people walking the streets of South Beach, with so many cultures having the time of their lives in this energetic party paradise. Frumoasa, bella, bonita- beautiful in any language!


The nightlife in South Beach is some of the mose intense in America. It is full of the same exotic people you'll see on the streets, it is very fashionable and chic, and there are no boundries other than simply getting in. You have to dress to impress, its always good to bring some of your top Italian clothing, these are not your neighborhood sports bars. My favorites are Mansion, Prive at Opium Garden, Cameo on certain nights, and Nikki Beach. Do not go into these clubs on a budget. Walk down Washington Ave. and you will find the clubs for those trying to save a buck, and there's always the outdoor spot at the Clevelander.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Exotic people and foods, an entertainment mecca
  • Cons:Getting too commercialized, college kids go to Daytona, please!
  • In a nutshell:24-7 party, bring energy, and your credit cards!

    Great pages on a great city. Wonderful tips on the clubs and cafes, also you did not confuse Miami Beach with inland Miami as many people do on this site. Bravo!

    Sounds like you nejoyed your stay on SoBe. Clevelander and Mango's can be fun, but the best places, in my opinion, are on Washington and Collins. :)
