When you're headed to Miami, make sure you don't pass up on the amazing nightlife. There are so many things to do when the sun goes down. Are you looking for a booming party, or do you simply want to sit back and relax with a delicious drink and great music? Either way, Miami has what you want.

The Bar

If you're looking to mingle with other professionals, head to The Bar. This classy hangout has everything you're looking for. Fridays have an awesome Happy Hour Extravaganza, meaning ladies drink free. On Saturday, the club brings in a live band for your listening pleasure. The rest of the week, you can choose your music from the well-stocked Jukebox. Using Gogobot, you can easily make sure the hotel you book is close to The Bar, so you don't have far to go for a great evening out.

If you're looking for a fun, Latin-themed place to go when the sun heads to bed, check out Mango's Tropical Café. Here you'll get an awesome Latin vibe, as well as a fun night. The waitresses dance on the bar regularly, delicious drinks are the norm, and the food is some of the best in the area. If you're looking for something interesting and new, Mango's offers dance shows and live music. The club is a great option any night of the week, but you'll see the most action on the weekends. If Latin music is the theme of the night, Mango's is the place to go.



Are you in the mood to sing your heart out? Head to Lips for some of the best karaoke in the city. Not only that, but on Tuesday nights, you'll get to experience a fun drag show. Lips is not the stop for you if you or anyone you're traveling with is shy. However, if you're ready to stand up and sing, Lips is the perfect spot. On top of this, you don't have to worry about cutting your evening short because you're hungry – Lips offers a delicious gourmet menu.



When you're in Miami, it's not uncommon to spot celebrities. One of the best celeb-spotting clubs is Mansion. Even if you don't see the stars, you'll feel like one inside the club. The design is ornate and the staircases are gilded. Regularly huge names in music will host the evening, giving you a unique experience that will make your trip memorable. If you feel like paying extra, you can even get a private room for you and your group. In total, the club can hold approximately 2,500 people, so you're going to be one of an elite crowd when you get into Mansion.
