Miami's Six Best After-Hours Clubs

Page 2 of 2

4. King of Diamonds. It might be the most famous strip club in the world. Rappers can't stop name-dropping this fat-ass palace, and it's right in our backyard. Sunday is the night of stars, or so the lyrics say, where you might run into Rick Ross, Drake, Lil Wayne, or Nicki Minaj. Yes, even Justin Bieber comes through, and Floyd Mayweather makes it rain, and so can you. KOD has a boxing ring where strippers fight and giant poles where dancers do death-defying acts of assy-ness. And, hey, it's open till 6 in the morning. 17800 Ipco Rd., Miami; 305-999-9500;

5. Floyd Miami. This cool nook goes all night thanks to a shared liquor license with its sister, Club Space. Its music programming is also run in tandem with Space's, which means you're in for Grade-A local, national, and international talent. Floyd carries a jazzy feel, but it also caters to the electronic lovers who seek deeper experiences. It's an intimate setting with a capacity of about 200 in a beautiful, dimly lit bar setting serving craft cocktails 24 hours. It's easy to forget the time inside its golden walls — you might just find yourself stumbling into the sun, wondering what happened to 8 a.m. 34 NE 11th St., Suite B, Miami; 786-618-9447;

6. The Corner. During the day, it's any other beat-up downtown storefront. But come around when the sun goes down, and the Corner will be crawling with dirty hipsters and cool street types sippin' delicious cocktails and turning the bathroom stalls into private party lounges. It's located on the literal corner of North Miami Avenue and NE 11th Street, adjacent to Space and across from E11even. That makes it perhaps the perfect hangout in all of the city for your late-night adventures, when you're tired of titties and dance music, of course. The Corner stays open until 8 a.m., so there's no rush. 1035 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-961-7887;
