Here in Miami, it feels like a club is born and dies every week. Regardless, the party-hopping frenzy continues when a new neighbor takes over the space of the old one. Here are some fresh paint jobs and fixer-uppers to rattle your party panties.
1439 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
No website or phone number yet
The 400 Club has been busy tweeting about this new nightclub in the former Snatch space. The grand opening June 18 featured dancing goddess Ciara and hip-hop hostess Lala Vasquez. The-Dream also recently hosted his official album-release party there, and Keri Hilson paid a visit soon thereafter. It looks like the 400 Club is trying to go head-to-head with Headliner Market Group after Club Play swapped promoters.
66 SW Sixth St., Miami
This cabaret-style club is located right around the corner from Tobacco Road and officially opened June 25. The grand opening and the launch of its Friday-night party, D'Moda, took place July 9. This space used to be home to Bricks Nightclub before it, well, hit the bricks. Let's hope the awkward location doesn't leave the exotic dancers eating dust, because Brickell is in need of some nightlife.
Alba Lounge at Sole on the Ocean
17315 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach
Sunny Isles Beach doesn't exactly seem like the ideal place for a lounge, but after Kitchen 305's success, other hotels in the area seem to be taking note. Sole on the Ocean opened Alba Lounge June 11 with the same promoters (Text to Party) that made K305 noteworthy. Alba hosts networking events every Thursday and promises to be a safe haven from the South Beach ruckus.
