Miami Beach is known worldwide for its exciting nightlife scene. People from all over the world visit the area to experience such unparalleled fun and glamour all night long. Some of the city’s favorite hot spots are found in hotels and lounges right in the East of Collins community. Here are some suggestions on where to go on any given night.

Mondays at DiLido Beach Club at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach
On weekday evenings, people in the know hit the DiLido Beach Club, the sandy oasis behind the swank Ritz-Carlton South Beach Hotel where happy hour prices span four luxurious hours from 4-8pm. Master Mixologist Ramsey Pimentel crafts tropical cocktails like watermelon and peach sangria and the chef’s Mediterranean light bites are just $8.

Tuesdays at Setai Hotel Pool & Beach Bar
At the end of a busy work day from 8-11pm, the stylish and elite slip into something boho chic and stop by the Setai Bar & Courtyard where $12 gets you a chilled flute of champagne or a specialty cocktail and a variety of complimentary canapés that will carry you over until dinner. The crowd is quiet and cool and the atmosphere is more sophisticated than the usual South Beach hotel bar. Designed with an elegant Asian influence, the vibe here is relaxing and serene as you sip on your bubbly, nibble, and watch the sunset sparkle over the surface of the gleaming swimming pools.

Wednesdays at FDR at the Delano Hotel
What used to be the highly desired Florida Room has now transformed into FDR at Miami’s famed and iconic Delano Hotel. Beautiful people lurk flawlessly at this underground club, which feels much like an exclusive hideaway with an alluring dark and sexy feel. The dance floor tends to get crowded quickly, so it is advised to reserve a VIP table for bottle service. Music differs every night, but there is never a shortage of crowd-pleasing tunes emitting through this freshly revamped club. From up-and-coming artists to mainstream club staples, this two-room venue showcases top talent in an intimate environment.

Thursdays at MYNT at the Shore Club
Infamous for their strict door policy, Mynt can be spotted from the infamous strip as they carefully select patrons from the crowd gathering along Collins. The list of celebrities that have made it to this club reads like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, so dress to impress when you venture here. Mynt is redesigned every summer to provide a fresh experience and to keep attracting the famous and fabulous guests they strive to please; and gorgeous go-go dancers mingling with the crowd adds a unique twist.

Fridays at LIV at the Fontainebleau Hotel
The party picks up tempo at the Fontainebleau Resort, a major destination for Miami’s trendsetters. And LIV nightclub is where it all happens. The club was recently honored by Reuters as one of the world’s top 10 nightclubs thanks to its state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment, top-notch DJs and ravishing clientele. Awe-inspiring architecture surrounds the interior dance floors, while grand staircases lead to different levels and exclusive VIP cabanas. While the original hotel catered to wealthy snowbirds, the new resort is all about Las Vegas glam. LIV has a strict door policy so dress smart and be prepared to wait at the door (or at the hotel’s Bleau Bar) unless you’ve booked bottle service with the club’s VIP concierge.

Saturdays at Wall & Wet Lounge at the W Hotel

The trendy W South Beach is an upscale adult’s playground-by-the-sea featuring WET—an outdoor poolside lounge, and WALL—a laid back boutique dance club that keeps things moving all night long. Created by the nightlife impresarios behind some of South Beach’s hottest clubs and restaurants, WALL offers a more intimate and upscale ambiance than most of the South Beach scene along Washington Avenue. This is the place to work that little black dress!

Sundays at The Betsy Hotel

In addition, The Betsy dedicates certain months in the year to gratitude-related themes. Kick back on one of the overstuffed sofas in the hotel lobby and sip on colorful cocktails while sharing in something positive for the world.
