Daer Dayclub & Nightclub to Open at the Hard Rock Fort Lauderdale

The exuberant Guitar Hotel at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino opened last week, and it did not skimp on any detail. The $1.5 billion expansion includes a new “dayclub” and nightclub. Set to debut on Halloween, Daer South Florida will offer partygoers a club trifecta.

Hard Rock Hollywood’s Daer is the concept’s second outpost; the original is located at the Hard Rock in Atlantic City. But South Florida’s Daer will offer two clubbing experiences and a rooftop bar. The dayclub and adjacent nightclub offer their own styles and flair.

“We are trying to bring an elevated day and nightlife experience, and we want world-class service,” says Matt Minichino, the Hard Rock’s corporate vice president of nightlife/daylife. “We want a daylife model that may not exist currently in the market or even in the state.”

The 21,000-square-foot Daer dayclub offers three pools, cabanas, daybeds, and hot tubs. The DJ booth is equipped with a 40-foot LED screen for guests partying amid tables of bloody marys. The VIP area boasts bungalows that provide amenities such as private pools and bottle service.

“The number-one thing people have said to me is, ‘I can’t believe South Florida is finally going to have a real dayclub,'” Minichino tells New Times. “Not that I’m downgrading, but we have the ability to have a full-on experience that clubs on South Beach might not have.”

Daer’s nightclub venue is slightly smaller (18,000 square feet) and features an enormous LED centerpiece and a convertible indoor/outdoor space. The attached rooftop bar overlooks the lagoon and pool areas. Both clubs are equipped with Function One speakers, a touch that aims to please audiophiles.

Daer will kick off its opening week with EDM royalty: This Thursday, Halloween, the nightclub will open with DJ Five and a “sexy costume contest” offering more than $50,000 in cash prizes. Friday will bring Dillion Francis. The following day, guests will get their first chance to experience a proper dayclub vibe with Tiësto at 1 p.m. Closing out the weekend will be a Sunday-afternoon set by the Chainsmokers — the duo’s second South Florida show in less than a month.

Minichino was tight-lipped about future bookings, but he suggested that previous shows at the Atlantic City locations might serve as a guide. Perhaps, then, South Florida can look forward to seeing Alesso, Drake, J. Cole, and Marshmello. Minichino promises a lineup announcement for November and December will be out soon. “South Florida will be the blueprint moving forward,” he adds.

General admission to both clubs will cost about $35. The dayclub’s hours are Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The nightclub will operate Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. till “late.”

Inside DJ Khaled’s $26 million Miami Beach Mansion

Epic mansions are nothing new to rap game luminaries, but DJ Khaled might have just taken things to another level. According to Architectural Digest, the We the Best Music Group boss recently copped himself a Miami Beach, Fla. mansion that cost him $25.9 million.

Khaled’s new limestone pad, which was previously owned by marketer Michael Lerner, stretches 12,750-square feet and includes a home theater, an outdoor shower, an 80-foot swimming pool and a gazebo. There are 10.5 rooms in total.

While Architectural Digest says Khaled’s Cesar Molina-designed crib was furnished by Holly Hunt & Christian Liagre, there’s a chance he’s going to add some items from his own recently released luxury furniture brand. There’s no word on that, but it’s pretty cool he has that option.

This purchase is just another sign of Khaled’s winning ways. Over the last couple years, the Florida-based DJ has helped concoct some of the biggest hits in the rap game, including tracks like his Chance The Rapper, Quavo and Justin Bieber-assisted 2017 single, “I’m the One.” The song has now gone platinum a few times, while the album it was released on (Grateful) went platinum. Khaled is frequently seen on the decks at several high end Miami nightclubs, including Liv, Story, and Rockwell.
