The Stage

A casual Design District hangout that's hosted many of Miami's finest, The Stage's actual stage is pretty small, but that just gives performers an excuse to occasionally wander into the crowd. There's always bands rocking out here, and Miami musicians have named it as one of their favorite places to play. National acts, like Ghostface Killah and St. Vincent, often hit The Stage when looking for a more intimate venue for their most dedicated fans. There's a huge dance floor, couches to get your rest on, and an outside area to catch your breath.
