Just as Miami's coastal areas are endangered, so are the city's evolving nightlife spaces. As gentrification has encroached on areas once considered undesirable, nightclubs that once took advantage of few nearby residents are now finding themselves threatened by noise complaints. Nowhere is there a better example of this phenomenon than in Miami's once-thriving Park West neighborhood, home to the city's 24-hour nightclub district. For 19 years, Space has been a pioneer of the area, and parties continue every Saturday. In 2016, the club went under new ownership led by veterans Davide Denese, Coloma Kaboomsky, and David Sinopoli. The trio has been able to inject new life into the grande dame of Miami nightlife, bringing with it a refreshed sound that focuses more on what's bubbling up from the underground. They also rechristened the downstairs room as the Ground — a live-music venue — while Floyd acts as a space for alternative electronic sounds that perhaps aren't yet ready to be heard upstairs. Hours are 11 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday and 11 p.m. Saturday to Sunday afternoon.
