Miami Beach Best Nightclubs

Top 10 Best Nightclubs in Miami in 2020

Along with New York City, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, Miami sits on the top tier of nightlife cities in the U.S., if not the entire world. For these top-tier cities, a diverse array of out-of-towners visit specifically to partake in late nights out, and so the nightlife scene is crazy on the weekends and does not let up much during the week. Since there are so many options, out-of-towners often ask where are the best nightclubs in Miami.

That being said, as you would expect, your pool of weekday options is smaller, the hotspots are less obvious and always changing, and you’re more apt to be surrounded by locals (who are less likely to be interested in meeting and mingling with tourists). In addition, Miami’s glitterati and socialite circles prefer to go out Mon/Tue/Wed to enjoy a higher degree of privacy/exclusivity, as do the local working-class twentysomethings who spend their weekends toiling within Miami’s massive service & tourism industries.

Miami’s beautiful sunny weather will keep the good vibes going all day long, but the nights are where this city really comes to life. Some of the best and craziest clubs in the world are located here, and they keep the party going until sun comes up. Whichever club you decide to check out in Miami, you won’t be disappointed, but let us direct you to our top 10 best nightclubs in Miami.

There are tons of fun places to party when visiting Miami! Luckily, we’ve pulled together the best clubs to party in Miami. If you’re looking for bars or lounges, we strongly urge you to first check out the top clubs in Miami, as Miami is home to some of the best and most fun clubs in the world.

There are numerous nightlife options featuring a wide array of music styles – electronic, hip-hop, Brazilian/Latin – at Miami’s numerous traditional dance nightclubs. Note that most clubs that are open on weekends also have one signature weeknight for which they are known to draw bigger crowds, e.g. Mokai or Rockwell on Mondays, Do Not Sit on Wednesdays, and Ora on Thursdays.

Apart from traditional dance clubs, the most crowded mid-week spots to party will be where the locals hang out: happy hour bars in Brickell and Coconut Grove, restaurants and hipster/artist lounges in up-and-coming Wynwood, and of course Miami’s famous (infamous?) strip clubs: Tootsies, King of Diamonds, G5ive, and E11even, the latter of which is actually a hybrid strip/dance club concept worth checking out on any day of the week. And of course, during high tourist season (March through June), even the South Beach tourist trap bars will be as packed with college kids and European and South American visitors during the week as they are on the weekends.

Top 10 Bachelor Party Cities in US

Today, we’re going to look at some of the best cities for you bachelor party. Unlike the other lists we’ve written about, this one will be a ranking and we will be start at #1 because why not. I’ve never been a big fan of scrolling all the way down to the bottom either. But what makes a great bachelor city? Is it the people? The food? The options? The clubs? Today we’re hoping to answer all these questions and more. So grab your favorite suit, extra cash and all the alcohol you can carry, and strap in. Here we go!

So how do you take advantage of the Top Bachelor Party Cities? Discotech has made finding your next wild night out easy and simple. Now you can see upcoming events, sign up for guest list and book table service directly on the free Discotech Mobile App. Or reach out to our helpline directly at 4157356716 – we can help you pick a spot for your next night out!

#1. Las Vegas

If you don’t think Las Vegas is the best bachelor party location possible, you either have never been to Las Vegas or have been there with a bunch of losers who don’t know how to have fun. Las Vegas offers anything and everything you could want or need in a bachelor party.

There are plenty of nice hotels in Vegas, but you generally want to be in one on the strip. Just don’t completely cut your budget on hotels. It’s much harder thank you think to convince a girl to come back with you to a place like Planet Hollywood or Paris. Locations off the strip just make your life a pain in the ass. Traffic along the strip sucks and the less time you waste in the back of a limo, the better.

The pool parties in Vegas are second to none. Here’s a word of advice when dealing with the pool parties and later the clubs, always pay to cut the line or sign up for Guest List. It’s totally worth spending an extra $50 a man with a VIP host to not spend an hour or more on line. If you don’t know a guy, I’m sure your friend knows a guy, or your friend’s coworker knows a guy. There are plenty of those kinda “guys” in Vegas that can help you out in this situation, but why bother. Click the online Discotech app and avoid the stress and hassle.

Once night hits, you’ll need some good food. Prime Steakhouse is my favorite of all the Vegas steakhouses because it’s specific to Vegas. Stack in the Mirage is a step down from a steakhouse, but all the waitresses make the name of the restaurant proud. In ‘N Out is reachable by taxi if you just want to stuff your face. Then you’re off to the club, where you should be getting table service at Marquee or XS (the two best clubs in Vegas). It’s really hard to find regular bars to go out to in Vegas. The best you’re going to do is something the Chanderlier Bar at the Cosmpolitan, Ghostbar at the Palms, or Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay.

Or just get drunk while you gamble because that doesn’t hurt either. We know Vegas has you covered when it comes to table gaming. It’s also the only place you’ll find a sportsbook in the United States, so you can throw down on a horse race, a championship fight, or an NFL game without having to worry about too much. Grab your clubs and fit in a morning round on your first day out there or else you won’t have the energy to do so by the end of the weekend. There’s also a good chance you end up at the Spearmint Rhino to check out some of the hottest strippers in the world.

#2. Miami

First, lets talk about location. You are going to want to stay on South Beach. Brickell is a nice area if you’re living full-time in Miami, but South Beach is where you need to be for a wild bachelor party weekend. Brickell and other areas of Miami are farther away from South Beach and you don’t want to waste your time and money going back and forth. Also, don’t overpay on the hotel. You won’t be in your room much anyway, so why spend big bucks on an elite hotel? Hotel location is important, but classiness not so much.

Now for food. When it comes to food, you want to be stuffing your hungover face with anything breakfast/lunch on the menu at Big Pink. There are plenty of renowned New York restaurants that have opened up new locations in Miami like the Dutch, Scarpetta, and BLT Steak, but if you’re not grabbing a nice steak and a big Kobe meatball at Prime 112, you’re doing yourself a disservice. You can’t forget about local favorite Joe’s Stone Crab either. If you’re drunk and looking for late night munchies, now is the time to head over to the mainland and hit up La Moon for an arepa burger.

The nightlife scene is on par with anything you’ll get in the world. A night with bottle service at LIV should be on top of your list if you like clubbing. Club Space is the place to roll to at 5 a.m if you don’t want to stop raging. Places like the Clevelander, the Delano, and Nikki Beach (specifically day party) offer plenty of fun as well.

Lastly, the weather is great but avoid Hurricane Season as it rains a lot in Miami during that time. There are also plenty of places to golf, women galore and romance at the clubs. Those are all a given when hearing the word Miami obviously. The only thing you’re missing is gambling, but you won’t care when your eyes are fixed on your computer screen on Monday morning and you’re just thinking about how awesome your weekend was. Check out the Discotech app to see upcoming events in Miami.

#3. Montreal

Montreal is not technically in the US but it’s easy enough to head north of the border if you want to hit Canada’s party town. Montreal’s basically got you covered for anything bachelor party related. Perhaps the most notable thing in Montreal is the strip clubs. You can do the regular man’s thing on Saint Catherine Street by hopping around to Club Supersexe, Chateau du Sex, or Club Super Contact. If looking for something a little higher end, head to Kamasutra for a one of a kind show. They also take things a little further if you head down towards Old Montreal on Saint Catherines and ask the right people. If gambling is another activity you wish to indugle, you can head to the Montreal Casino, which isn’t too far away. It’s just smaller than you’d want in terms of available table gaming.

Trust me, you are really going to want to be on Boulevard Saint Laurent when searching for a place to drink. A place like Tokyo satisfies all your needs with good looking girls, multiple themed rooms, and a roof area. If bottle service is more your thing, Montreal has a scene where restaurants turn into a Club/Lounge atmosphere once it starts getting late. Make sure to download or click the Discotech App to check out what’s popping in Montreal. It’s a little different than what you’re used to in America because people tend to rage out by their tables and there’s usually not one main dance floor, but that doesn’t mean you can’t meet a nice local girl to party with for the night.

#4. New Orleans

Ah, New Orleans. Home to the infamous Mardi Gras. But fourth place? Yes, fourth place. The obvious reason is Bourbon Street, which, beleive it or not, is a lot more fun on something like a big sporting event weekend than it is during Mardi Gras. While you will miss out on seeing your share of naked ladies if you pass on Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street becomes much easier to manage.

There are still plenty of people during a big sporting event weekend to keep the fun up. Plus Bourbon Street has its share of strip clubs to get your fix there as well.

The food is also top tier. You can get anything pig-related at Cochon and it will be fantastic. You will not be disappointed, whether it’s pork ribs, smoked ham, fried boudin balls, or cochon itself. Johnny’s Po-Boys will get you your po-box fix.

Need some gambling? Harrah’s Casino is conveniently located near the water and open 24 hours a day, which may or may not be a good thing. Head to the Old New Orleans Rum distillery to make a nice day trip if you can wake up in time. New Orleans is one of the most fun places to be. Make sure to click Discotech to check out all the upcoming events in New Orleans!

#5. Charleston

Ah, number five. There are a ton of things to do in Charleston. For one, there are a lot of great restaurants in Charleston because of the large migration to the area from New Orleans’ best chefs after Hurricane Katrina. Places like Husk and The Ordinary are well recognized as some of the best restaurants in the country with Oak Steakhouse recently making a best of U.S. steakhouse list as well.

Golf and beaches are also two of Charleston’s finest qualities. You are truly lucky if you can somehow get a round of golf on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. If you can’t, you’ll still be able to find another great looking course to swing your clubs. The beaches get plenty of life, since the weather is generally good for most of the year.

There are plenty of fun bars on Bay Street and Market Street near the water or you can hit up King Street for bars closer to the University of Charleston’s campus. Neither area will disappoint.  The fun doesn’t stop when the bars close either. Thee Southern Belle strip club has a tremendous reputation and is a great place to go after hours in Charleston because you can BYOB. Regular girls even go there to hang out.

#6. Austin

One of everyone’s favorite Southern cities, Austin has a lot to offer for a bachelor party. We’ll start with the obvious – the women. There are few cities in America that can compete with Austin in terms of great looking women. Right behind the beautiful women is the barbecue, which is arguably as good as you’ll get anywhere in the country. Franklin Barbecue was recently voted the best barbecue in the country, so it’s a must-see spot on your trip.

With food and women out of the way, let’s focus on drinking. The bars on 6th street will have you satisfied or you can head over to the Warehouse District and Fourth Street if you’re looking to not hit the same spots all weekend. Need a good hangover omelet in the morning? Magnolia Café has got you covered. If music is your thing, Texas has two major music festivals that can give you your fill and are a fun thing to center a weekend around. Throw together with the generally warm weather, the potential for a University of Texas sporting event, plenty of local golf courses and you have the formula for success. Click here to see upcoming events in Austin!

#7. Nashville

There’s a good reason Nashville has the nickname of NashVegas. It’s a loved destination for travelers in the South and Midwest because it’s easy to get to and has lots to offer. The good thing about a place like this is the people you meet are for the morst part carefree and the visiting girls are very fun. I’d also recommened you get some good barbecue at Jack’s, a one of a kind meat and three or the Nashville specialty of hot chicken.

There are two main areas to get to drinking. There’s the well-known strip of bars on Broadway and a couple streets close by in the downtown area. You can also head out to the Midtown area near Vanderbilt and find plenty of places there.

I highly suggest checking out the Nashville Pedal Tavern, which is a unique and fun way to do a bar crawl and meet random chicks to hang out with. If your into shooting guns, you can do that too. The good thing about Nashville is that it’s weather-resistant, so it doesn’t really matter what time of year you check it out. The one downside is that basically every bar is country music heavy. If you’re not a fan, you might just have to bit your tongue and bear down the whole weekend. Click upcoming events in Nashville to see what’s going down!

#8 Phoenix / Scottsdale

When looking to throw it back to your youthful college days in bachelor party fashion, heading to Arizona is the best place for this type of experience . While there are a lot of scientific establishments and other boring things awaiting the average tourist in the state of Arizona, we’d not suggest those to you. Instead, you should be taking a road trip to Phoenix / Scottsdale for some brotherly bonding at adult clubs and open-till-late entertainment centers there.

Phoenix is ideal for those who do not mind getting tan and are craving a boyish road trip that would take them to wild nightclubs and unforgettable street parties. Some cool things to do while visiting include partying, golf, and river tubing. The food scene is also fantastic, as celebrated barbecue served by local restaurants and bars keep tourists coming from all over America. Click Upcoming Events in Phoenix / Scottsdale to see see what’s happening this weekend!

#9 Denver

For those who don’t know, a Colorado bachelor party is a different kind of bachelor party entirely. No clubs, no strippers, and possibly not even any women. So what’s the appeal? Depending on your group dynamics, a rugged three-day weekend of rafting, skiing/ snowboarding, hiking, beer drinking, weed smoking, outdoor adventuring and manly-bonding can actually be more memorable than the typical club-scene.

However, if you want to squeeze in the nightlife scene, Denver is home to some excellent steak restaurants and bars. However, the natural beauty and seemingly endless things to do in the gorgeous outdoor environment is really the highlight of this location. Although not known for a wild nightlife scene, Denver does host epic events and concerts. Hit the slopes or a hiking trail in the morning and then finish the day partying at one of the many bars / venues featuring your favorite musician, is not a bad way to spend a day. Click Upcoming Events in Denver to see upcoming events and concerts!

#10 New York

Last but not least, New York City. NYC certainly does have its positives. For starters there’s every type of bar imaginable and you can drink until 4 a.m. We recommend Brother Jimmys, then rink some good brews at the Standard Beer Garden, or hit a club like SL or 1Oak. The restaurants offer any cuisine a bachelor party can want whether it be pizza , burgers, barbecue, or steak.

For all the positives, this fine city has its downfalls for bachelor parties. It’s expensive, specifically with hotel rooms. You can’t do anything in New York between September and December because hotel prices will be through the roof. It also isn’t the best for strip clubs (yes, we know those matter too).

Best Rooftop Bars in Miami

As we head Southeast to the beautiful city of Miami, one wonders how it is possible to soak up all the city has to offer. Although many enjoy running around finding clubs and bars, few actually know some of the hidden gems scattered around the city. Rooftop bars. Yes, scenic views, calm breezes and stunning crowds, rooftop bars will not only provide you a playground for fun but also impress your friends as you guide or show them what Miami has to offer. None of our lists are ever in ranking order.

Altitude at SLS Brickell

The idea behind this 20,000 square foot pool deck and bar was to provide party goers a pool bar where you can lounge and hang out throughout the day and into the night. Here you can take gorgeous pictures of the sights around Miami Beach and Key Biscayne, while drinking a margarita and pondering a dip in the pool. The deck is free to the public — with the purchase of a day pass or cabana rental — so you don’t need to pay out for a room to enjoy an afternoon here.

Area 31

There perhaps no better feeling than standing at the edge of this bar on the 31st floor of the EPIC. Of course, going here on a Friday night means you’re sharing that feeling with a couple hundred other people, but who cares. Truth be told, I prefer a bar where everyone’s in a great mood. That’s nothing new in this city so grab whatever you enjoy drinking on a lovely night out and hang poolside, while appreciating that you’re living this good in February.

Vista

Unknown to many, the Buena Vista neighborhood was founded and named far before there were “rooftop bars” where people like you and me go to take in the “vistas.” The foreshadowing name comes to fruition as when arriving you’ll notice this terrace on the second floor of Vista Italian restaurant. Here you are able to survey the neighborhood, or enjoy Upper Buena Vista’s iconic ancient oak tree, tapas and a menu all with live music in the background.

Watr at the 1 Hotel

When your pool is known as having one of the best hotel pool views in the world, of course you need to be shooting some serious beverages to go along with it. Although this spot has quieted down, the bar still remains one of the most scenic spots on the beach.

When taking in the views, your treated to the Atlantic, while in the other you’ll see the expansive Miami skyline, blending the feel of an urban rooftop, oceanview, and trendy pool bar in one sun-soaked patio.

C-Level

When hittting Ocean Drive, an afternoon spent at the Clevelander’s rooftop bar is a must for new comers to the city and for the locals, a visit to this bar is sure to remind you why you live in this gorgeous city. As you stare out at the inviting blue-green waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Art Deco hotels, and the city behind you, you are taken back to the enchantment that first drew you to this wild beach city.

Juvia

The restaurant found on the top of the 1111 garage in South Beach is one of the great date-with-a-view spots in Miami. Not only is it one of the top date spots, but bewarned, the place is expensive and will quickly burn a hole in your wallet if you let your friends order multiple rounds of drinks and entres on you.

If looking for romance and a much lower bill, head over to this place for drinks. Relax and unwind by the ivy-covered walls outside, and relish in the award-winning design layout and views of the ocean.

No. 3 Social

With Wynwood building being what it is, a second-floor bar qualifies as a top tier rooftop establishment on its own. So rather than waiting for an elevator, you’ll just ascend a flight of stairs surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and come towards this big, purple space where you are reminded to “Socialize.” Perhaps no greater debate has ever existed, as one struggles between posting the perfect picture or following the rules that have been told to you. Good luck finding a healthy balance.

E11even

Perhaps nothing is quite as enoyable after spending all your money at E11even than making a quick retreat to the bar upstairs. You can gaze out towards Downtown, feel the cool breeze blowing upon you from down NW 11th Street, and savor an ice-cold beer or fancy cocktail. E11even also has fantastic bottle service availiable for those looking to drop real money. Then, once you’ve regained your composure, you have the option of enjoying some food or going back downstairs and to continue with your bad decision making. Click here for upcoming events at E11even so not to miss out!

Sugar

Way atop Brickell’s swanky East hotel rests one of the city’s premier rooftop bar, Sugar, with perfect views far out beyond Biscayne Bay to the east, north to Downtown, and south to the bright lights of Brickell. Completely encompassing this Balinese garden exists a mysterious but alluring feeling that makes you more than happy to be here. And if it’s raining, nothing to worry about. The party’s not ruined, make sure to head inside to the not-so-secret room to keep enjoying all the views without the rain.

Mr. C Coconut Grove

While you’re pounding shots at Sunday brunch or sipping mimosas, there’s a pretty good chance you’re enjoying yourself while doing it if doing it here. Mr. C’s bar provides a gorgeous view of Miami and hosts a elegant and sophisticated atmosphree while also staying light and upbeat. The latest sits atop the Mr. C hotel in Coconut Grove, where the nautical Cipriani décor gives way to a huge patio with sights that stretch far out over the lush, tropical landscape.

Astra

Although not the very first rooftop lounge in Wynwood, Astra is the very first to bring the garden styled view feel to Miami’s art district. This Greek-inspired scene has a west facing patio, ensuring you and your friends see the beautiful sunset. You’ll additionally notice the large trippy pink walls and pink butterflies that litter on the ground. The sunsets seem particularly heavenly when matched with what is possibly the best selection of Greek wines in the city.

Bloom Skybar

The bar located at the top of the Langford Hotel boasts one of the most divine panoramic views from the middle of the Miami skyline, provding partrons with spectacular drinks in inventive containers. If you find yourself looking for a great view or maybe an escape from the typical bar-on-a-curb scene, this is your place.

Miami Music Week 2019 Party Guide

The Ultra Music Festival or “Ultra” is Miami’s outdoor electronic dance music (EDM) festival that takes place every March.  As EDM has surged in popularity worldwide over the past decade and a half, this ubiquitous festival and global multicultural gathering has grown from a one-day concert for the first eight years of its existence into a two-day affair, and then in 2017 became a three-day morning-to-midnight event. The 2019 version of UMF is to millennials what Woodstock was to Baby Boomers: a music-infused touchstone that defines an entire generation, as well as one of the premier party destinations for Spring Break college kids and wealthy foreign travelers alike (attendance for this year’s event is expected to top 200,000+ revelers).

Notably, this year’s UMF – scheduled for 29-31 March – has moved location from Bayfront Park adjacent to downtown Miami, where it was held since 2012, across the Biscayne Bay to Virginia Key (cue Brickell’s exasperated local residents nodding and clapping furiously).  Above and beyond the handful of official events organized by the UMF planners and the WMC planners, the rest of the city’s local hotspots and businesses join in on the party, with performances by over 1,000 artists in over 200 events held in various venues from nightclubs to bars to restaurants to hotel pools to public areas such as Lincoln Road and the Miami beaches.

Discotech is your one-stop shop for discovering events and getting VIP access not only to the Ultra Music Festival itself but to all of the hottest 2019 Miami Music Week side-piece parties happening in and around the Magic City.  In homage to Australian DJ Fisher – one of 2018’s breakout music artists and a favorite among the Discotech team – here are the biggest EDM sea creatures swimming in Miami’s waters this week that you humble fishermen (or fisherwomen) should set your nets and cages to catch. And, if you’re willing to dive down into deeper waters, there are also plenty of great underground acts playing all around town at smaller venues, with reasonably priced tickets still available.

BIG KAHUNA:

Firebeatz & Friends @ Mokai

When Miami Music Week swarms into town, even the city’s renowned hip-hop community steps back and defers to the global electronic dance music scene. Such is the case with Mokai, one of Miami’s flagship hip-hop nightclubs that recently rose to notoriety via some memorable rap artist performances and a handful crazy marketing stunts, including a wayward VIP bottle presentation involving a live horse. Mokai opens it doors for the early arrivers to MMW 2019 to get their quick-and-early EDM fix through a special headline performance by up-and-coming Dutch artists Firebeatz.

Time: 11:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Mokai (Address: 235 23rd St, Miami, FL 33139)

BIG KAHUNA:

Dmitri Vegas & Like Mike @ Hyde Beach

Hyde Beach was the scene of a memorable Ultra afterparty in 2017 featuring Dmitri Vegas & Like Mike rocking the house to an epic confetti shower paying homage to Miami’s infamous spring thunderstorms.

Dirty South @ Treehouse Miami

It has been an amazing ride for the Grammy Nominated DJ/Producer Dirty South aka Dragan Roganovic. Born in Belgrade, Serbia, he relocated to Melbourne, Australia when he was 13. When he started his musical journey, he couldn’t even afford turntables, but he managed to improvise with used NEC Hi-Fi and tape decks. By steady hustling, he was able to graduate to a computer, audio software, and keyboards, and his first official production was released in 2004. Fifteen years later, he is a staple at electronic music festivals worldwide, and in the biggest festival of the year he returns to his simpler roots with an open-to-close set at Treehouse, one of South Florida’s best underground electronic venues.

Time: 11:00 PM – 6:00 AM

Venue: Treehouse (Address: 323 23rd St, Miami, FL 33139)

Set Times / Lineup: UMF Website

Claptone’s Epic Masquerade @ Kimpton Epic Hotel

Blurring the line between dreamscape and reality, The Masquerade events have seen Claptone take his inimitable soiree to all four corners of the world, selling out world-class venues along the way. Shrouded in intrigue, the masked figure behind the decks keeps his focus firmly on the music. As he invites the wildest partygoers to unlock their minds and experience a world like no other, crazy ideas will materialize out of thin air and grand dreams will come to life. One thing is for sure – Miami will never be the same after Claptone’s Masquerade has stopped by.

To ensure that this is an event not to be missed, the masked crusader has assembled a suitably heavyweight line-up to keep the magic flowing from start to finish. Up first is New York’s finest, Dennis Ferrer, who will be bringing his unique blend of house and techno to proceedings; UK house aficionado Weiss will be delivering tunes to match the sun-kissed vibe. One of the scene’s hottest names, Franky Rizardo, will no doubt have a few tricks up his sleeve, while Berlin’s Mat.Joe complete the line up with their inimitable brand of ‘crispy urban house’.

Time: 12:00 PM – 11:00 PM

Guy Gerber @ WALL

Anjunabeats Pool Party @ Delano Beach Club

With two days of Ultra in the books, the Sunday hotel pool parties will be packed as revelers running on fumes seek to soak in some sun and recharge their batteries from the night before… or just go straight from last night’s fiesta to grab some gasoline in the form of Cuban coffee and then wheel on over to the next venue.  A ten-hour set at poolside at the Delano by Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label squad – a rainbow coalition of top-shelf progressive house talent including Andrew Bayer, Grum, and ilan Bluestone, will be just what the doctor ordered to wind the party down… or perhaps to turn the party up, depending on your MMW sleep schedule.

Time: 12:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Venue: Delano Beach Club (Address: 1685 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139)

Lineup: Andrew Bayer | Gabriel & Dresden | Grum | ilan Bluestone | Jason Ross | Sunny Lax | Oliver Smith

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.

Ultra Miami Changing Locations in 2019

South Beach’s flagship electronic music event, Ultra Music Festival, has lost its bid for a five-year contract with the City of Miami and will be forced to move from its iconic Bayfront Park location.

Having set up shop in the Downtown Miami location for nearly two decades, the internationally recognized music festival was thwarted by The City of Miami Commission today after they voted unanimously against the bid.

According to The Miami New Times, Commissioner Joe Carollo led the charge in denying the renewal of Ultra’s bid, citing the fact that downtown residents are sick and tired of the chaotic and loud festival.

When pro-Ultra speakers brought up the point that Bayfront Park has been Ultra’s home for 18 years, Carollo sniped back, saying: “That was a different Miami. The kind of music that Ultra plays is not the same as other venues where the music changes… It’s thump, thump, thump.”

The Commissioner organized a petition back in July of 2017 to stop the city from throwing massive music events in the park.

The campaign was aimed at giving the park back to the local community rather than have it designated as a “cash cow for the city” that is “destroying the park’s environmental elements” and bringing “alcohol/drug-related violence” to the downtown area.

Following its eviction, it remains unclear as to where Ultra Music Festival plans to locate next. Tickets for the 2019 edition of the festival went on sale the day before the decision was reached.
