After nearly 16 weeks in action, South Beach's $10 million Vegas-style nightclub Adore has shut its doors.
"They closed about a week ago," confirmed a representative of the Boulan South Beach, the hotel where the posh nightclub was located.
Vegas nightlife impresario Cy Waits announced he was opening the 12,000-square-foot nightclub back in December, but due to delays, the date was pushed back to March, just in time for Winter Music Conference.

According to Page Six of the New York Post, Waits handed over the club to KNR Hospitality, the same Miami Beach nightlife group behind local party spots Wall, the Living Room, and Cavalli. But three weeks later, KNR backed out of the deal.
"They realized it would not be a welcome addition to their portfolio," a KNR spokesperson told the Post.
Adding fuel to the fire, a lawsuit was filed against Waits' partner Amit Raizada claiming Raizada mismanaged the club's funds, the Post reported.
"We were over budget in construction, delayed in opening, and have not been generating sufficient business to even cover costs," an Adore spokesperson wrote in an email sent to the Post.
"With [. . .] no clear path to long-term success, OFG Management [Raizada's company] has resigned as the management company. Since all of you are employees of that company, I regret that we must part ways."

In its short lived time in the Magic City, Adore has hosted some of the wildest parties of the year with some of the biggest names in the uhntz-uhntz biz, including Diplo. It even made the cut on Crossfade's pick for Miami's Five Best New Dance Clubs.
But, as always, every good thing must come to an end. Some things, however, end sooner than anticipated.
Crossfade has made multiple attempts to contact Adore. We'll keep you posted on the situation over at the club.
