The Vagabond Miami: Five Classic Memories From the Fifth Anniversary Party

A canopy of black and white balloons welcomed ladies in headbands and coral and purple tribal-printed dresses, and men in blue plaid button-downs and straw fedora hats as they made their way through the doors of the Vagabond Miami.

Celebrating its fifth birthday, the 30 NE 14th Street watering hole threw a two-day bash overflowing with free booze, live music from local bands, Burlesque dancers in black corsets and matching top hats, and a woman walking around with white, pink, and black body paint canvassed all over her frame.

Sure the Vagabond has seen plenty of weird nights, indie acts, and wild parties, but its down-to-earth vibe is what gives weight to it's name.

In the spirit of the club's five-year anniversary, here are five classic Vagabond memories, according to the party animals at the Downtown hot spot.
