A Handy Guide to Miami Nightlife

Miami has been one of the top tourist destinations in the United States of America for decades now. There are lots of breathtaking experiences in the city that will make you wish to come back, and the nightlife here is one of those experiences. Miami is simply one of the rarest cities in the United States where the nights just won’t cool off.

The life and energy here could be even more than you’ve ever asked for. And with the sultry conditions of the day sticking around for the after-party, you will enjoy the night even more. For a hands-on experience of the nightlife in Miami, here’s what you may want to do:

1. Take Advantage of the Happy Hour Deals
If you want to experience some of Miami’s best and most expensive bars and restaurants on a budget, you may want to try your hands on the Happy Hour deals all around the city. You can try the Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina at Miami Beach, or try cocktails from Bodega Taqueria y Tequila at the South Beach.

In South of Fifth, there is an amazing classic American cocktail bar known as The ScapeGoat. Here, you can enjoy beers, cocktails, and wine at an amazing price. With the happy hour deals all over Miami, you are guaranteed to get a deal that will meet your preference. 

2. Art walks
To experience the Miami culture and nightlife in one of the most interesting ways, you can opt for night walks. The most famous one of these walks is the Wynwood Art Walk, which is held on the second Saturday of every month. The event takes place in Wynwood and features DJs, live street and mural art, drinks, special art activations, food trucks, and more. 

There is also Viernes Culturales (Cultural Fridays), which is held on the third Friday of each month in Little Havana. This event is ideal for persons of all ages, and there is art, music, food, domino games, dancing, and more for you to enjoy. 

You can also enjoy the Coral Gables’ First Friday Gallery Night that takes place every first Friday of the month. The event is sponsored by the Coral Gables Gallery Association and features more than 15 art galleries, free trolley rides through the different galleries, complimentary refreshments, and more. 

3. Enjoy Concert and Movie Nights
With the warm weather in Miami, outdoor concerts and movies are quite common. One of the best sites for this is SoundScape Park, close to the New World Center. Here, you can enjoy WALLCAST® concerts and movies. The same spot also offers free movies some nights. 

4. Enjoy a Different View of Miami from a Rooftop Bar
One of the major drawbacks of Miami is that it is quite flat. There is no naturally-elevated spot where you can go to have a view of the city. But that’s not the huge problem you may want to think it is, since the East Hotel serves as the best artificial vantage point. Forty floors up the hotel, you will find Sugar, an Asian garden with amazing cocktails and a large view of the city, from the Everglades to the South Beach. 

5. Try LED Paddle Boarding
What better way is there to see the city’s transformation from day to night other than taking a SUP tour? The 90-minute tour starts at sunset, allowing you to appreciate the effect of sunset on the city. You can recreate your daytime experience with a board that comes equipped with LED lights for an even brighter experience. 

In conclusion, there is a vast assortment of activities in Miami that will help you appreciate the nightlife here like you never had before. With the thrill of the day extending into the night, you can be sure to enjoy the nights just like you enjoy your days, if not more. Be sure to enjoy your nights in the best ways possible because they never seem to last enough.
