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.

Looking for the hottest bars & clubs in Miami? See upcoming events sign up for guest list and book table service directly on the free Discotech Mobile App. Or reach out to our help line directly at 4157356716 – we can help you pick a spot for your next night out in Miami.

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.

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.

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.

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

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’.

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.

Floyd Money Mayweather Drops Stacks at E11EVEN

They don’t call him “Money Mayweather” for nothing.

Floyd Mayweather lived up to his nickname by throwing $5,000 into the air at Miami hot spot E11EVEN, and then threw down even more dough on bottle service for his VIP crew Wednesday morning, an insider told Page Six.

We’re told the boxing champ, 41, arrived at the club around 3 a.m. in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter dressed in a Nike hoodie, matching shorts and his headline-making $18 million Jacob and Co. watch.

Accompanied by a large crew of about 20 people, Mayweather was ushered in through the VIP door and seated at a secluded table in the club’s party pit.

“Within minutes of walking in, Mayweather started flooding the club floor with bills,” our insider said. “Clubgoers were going nuts realizing who it was after it happened.”

While the former fighter is known for not drinking alcohol, our source says “He didn’t mind spending his funds bottle service at e11even for his friends,” and ordered multiple bottles of Grey Goose, Don Julio 1942, Moët Nectar Rose and Hennessy to his table.

After settling in with pals, Mayweather made money rain down on clubgoers once again.

According to our source, with the money he tossed carelessly into the air, plus his $6,000 bottle service bill, Mayweather shelled out $11,000 for an epically expensive night out on the town.

Also at the club was former FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho, who arrived just after Mayweather made his exit at about 6 a.m.

What Cities in the US Have Nightlife Past 2 AM?

While quite a few cities across America have nightclubs and bars that are open past 2am, Las Vegas, New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami are the four nightlife capitals of the U.S., if not the entire world. Each of these cities boasts nightlife venue variety for all kinds of musical, ethnic, and socioeconomic tastes numbering in the several hundreds, with new ones popping up every day.

It is true that most L.A. nightclub venues stop serving alcohol at around 1:30am and close at 2am, but there are few that stay open past 2am until 3–4am – specifically, Academy, Exchange LA, and Avalon. In Las Vegas, New York, and Miami, most nightclubs stay open well past 3am, with the hottest and most popular ones going until 5–6am. There are a couple venues in each city that stay open til dawn, such as Space Miami, and Drai’s After Hours.

For those of you night owls visiting a major U.S. city to do some partying, the Discotech app is an essential planning tool for seeing how late your selected clubs will be open. You can use our app to browse club and pool party events by specific days of the week, holidays, or dates you’ll be in town.

The app event info refreshes daily, pulling from various entertainment online resources including the official websites of the clubs themselves, so it’s always current, accurate, and in the know. We are live in the four aforementioned top-tier cities and six other second-tier markets in the U.S., and we work with nearly 200 nightlife venues, including every one of the Top 10 nightlife venues mentioned in the Forbes list and 95% of the list’s Top 100.

Best Memorial Day Parties in Miami / South Beach 2018

Memorial Day is the time we honor the men and women who have lost their lives serving our country. Our soldiers are gone, but not forgotten. Yet it’s no secret we use this holiday weekend to go all-out in true Miami fashion. From poppin’ bottles on yachts to going buck wild on South Beach, this town will be raging for at least four days straight. It’s a guaranteed Tuesday-crawl-into-work sort of deal. Who’s ready? Things are about to get crazy. Here are the ten best Memorial Day weekend parties.

Rock the Yacht All-White Party. Most days, we’re rockin’ the 9-to-5. But on Memorial Day weekend, you can rock the yacht and your best white outfit aboard the South Beach Lady, a fancy, four-level luxury vessel. The 3.5-hour floating party will offer sounds by DJ Prince, a light buffet, bottle service, and other swanky fixings. At the time of this writing, the site warned there were only 19 tickets left, so act fast. The yacht will depart from 401 Biscayne Blvd. at 11:30 p.m. sharp. Forget your problems at sea, and party in luxury. 10:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday, May 25, aboard the South Beach Lady, 401 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 347-581-4943. Tickets cost $75 to $1,000 plus fees via eventbrite.com.

Best of the Best Music Fest. Best of the Best will return for a 12th year when it takes over Bayfront Park Sunday, May 27. The Memorial Day weekend fest, self-described as the “biggest reggae festival in North America,” will feature Mavado, Aidonia, Capleton, Masicka, Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, Kerwin Dubois, Hood Celebrityy, Romain Virgo, and many others. If the revelry on South Beach has left you broke and unable to toke, you can still win tickets to the fest here. Friday, May 25, be sure to pass by the Best of the Best preparty at Fate Nightclub. 2 p.m. to midnight Sunday, May 27, at Bayfront Park, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-358-7550. Tickets cost $52 to $499 plus fees via bestofthebestconcert.com/tickets.

Trina at Studio 23. In 2017, New Times declared Trina “The One and Only Queen of Hip-Hop,” and the sentiment stands. Trina is a staple of Miami music, and the Magic City will forever be indebted to the Diamond Princess’ contributions. Her 1999 track “Da Baddest Bitch” was recently dubbed by New Times as one of the 15 songs that made Miami. Have we driven home how important Trina is, people? Watching her perform live is the epitome of what we call a “Miami dream.” And if you haven’t experienced one yet, here’s your chance to see the rapper in action. She’s set to kick off Memorial Day weekend with a free show (if you arrive by 12:30 a.m.) at Studio 23, so don’t you dare miss it. 11 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, at Studio 23 Miami, 247 23rd St., Miami Beach; 305-401-5438. Admission is free before 12:30 a.m. and costs $20 plus fees after 12:30 via eventbrite.com.

Memorial Day Weekend All-White Party With Ashanti. If there’s any way we would want to spend our Memorial Day weekend, it’s with Ashanti while looking fly in our all-white ensembles. Self-described as the “biggest and sexiest all-white party ever,” the bacchanal will feature sounds by DJ Tight and DJ Q305, as well as a special performance by Ashanti. 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, May 26, at Sport of Kings Theatre, 501 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale Beach. Tickets cost $24 to $620.05 via eventbrite.com.

Pool Parties. On Memorial Day weekend, there’s bound to be a party wherever you turn. Thousands of revelers will descend upon Miami Beach for the holiday weekend in search of a good time. And some of the best times are spent poolside. If you’re not partying in your bathing suit, you’re doing it all wrong. You have a few options: There’s the Aquafete Miami pool party, the Miami Nice 2018 Soak-n-wet Mansion Pool Party, or the Wet & Juicy Pool Party. Crowds are said to be heavy at the Clevelander South Beach Hotel & Bar, which can mean only one thing: It’s probably your best place to start.

Islands Fever. Getting liquored up at no cost is a rarity. If you play your cards right, you can find a few spots offering free drinks. The Islands Fever Memorial Day weekend foam fete will offer free drinks until midnight, three foam machines (but if you’re not down with that sort of thing, there will be a dry side), live DJs, and one hell of a time. 11 p.m. Friday, May 25, at Mana Wynwood Convention Center, 318 NW 23rd St., Miami. Tickets cost $10 to $30 plus fees via eventbrite.com.
