How tight are the velvet ropes at Miami Beach megaclubs?
So unyieldingly snap-stiff that not even Justin Bieber can get the VIP treatment.
That whole JB drama was a public relations mess for the Opium Group-owned Lincoln Road club. So when the pop star showed up this past weekend, looking to reserve tables and buy bottles at LIV, Story, and Adore ... He was rejected.

Officially, Bieber's in town for some recording sessions with Uncle Stunna (AKA Cash Money Records founder Birdman) and the rest of the YMCMB crew.
But during some downtime, he decided to go clubbin'. And naturally, being the Biebz, his nightspots of choice were LIV and Story, the No. 5 and 8 clubs in the nation, as well as Miami Beach's newest megaclub, Adore.
He was refused VIP reservations by all three clubs to avoid any unflattering and unnecessary JB drama.
But the main reason is really the most obvious of all.
"They did not let him in," a rep for Adore tells Crossfade, "since he's not 21 years old."
