Love it or hate it, everyone knew about Will Call. The hybrid music venue perched at the doorstep of the American Airlines Arena for the last four years was many things to many people. But now, Will Call Miami is officially closed down, its doors shut, bar emptied. Modeled to be a great rock & roll venue, Will Call served the needs of many a folk. Some of the best bands in town, including an eclectic mix of occasional national acts, played there. Some legendary late night sets that could have only happened in the Magic City happened on its stage. 

Miami Heat games were both celebrated and lamented at that bar. It’s 24-hour liquor license and all-night DJ sets brought together elements of Miami that few had the opportunity to experience. 

However, construction for Miami's Worldcenter project means there will be soon be five square blocks of downtown Miami that nobody will recognize. And unfortunately, Will Call was in the Worldcenter's way. Currently Will Call is locking down a new secret location, according to management. Earlier this month, the beloved Miami institution Fox's Sherron Inn closed as well to make way for construction. But like a monster too tough to quit, it appears the beast known as Will Call will rise again. Or, at least, that's the plan.
