Maybe it's the flashy vibe we've got going on or the renowned DJs who make the 305 their second home or the celebrities and models who are constantly spotted on the beach... Whatever it is, we've got it.
So get out and live up to our hard-core party rep with the six best parties going down on SoBe this week.
