Grab your plutonium, rev that engine to 88 mph, and hang on tight: Best of Miami 2015 is almost here! Here's a preview of one of the winners, but check out the entire issue when it goes online tomorrow and hits newsstands Thursday, June 18.
Do Not Sit on the Furniture
423 16th St.
Miami Beach 33139
From the ashes of Bella Rose and the Boom Boom Room rose the littlest club that could, Do Not Sit on the Furniture — or as it's more commonly known to Miami clubbers, Don't Sit. The name is a mouthful, but it's also an apt reminder of the club's M.O.: Whatever you do, keep on dancin'. The people behind the mini nightclub in the heart of South Beach include San Francisco DJ/producer Behrouz and Electric Pickle's Will Renuart. And since 2013, Don't Sit has been packing the space thanks to smart bookings like Nic Fanciulli, Seth Troxler, and Josh Wink. As reliably great as the music is, Don't Sit's best attribute is its relaxed vibe. For once in SoBe, worries about being pushed aside by bottle-service demands or dealing with overly packed dance floors go out the window. A simple but hypnotic disco ball revolves over the flood, while a sound system capable of rearranging your internal organs pumps out the bass. Drinks are moderately priced (for the Beach, anyway), with beers going for around $8 and well drinks ranging from $8 to $10, depending upon the night.
