New Years Eve in Miami: Our Top Party Picks
If you’re planning on spending your New Year’s Eve in the Magic City, don’t miss these top party picks!
Few nightspots in Miami carry the level of notoriety as Space, and that’s probably because none have been open as long as the two-and-a-half decade-old venue has. So of course, we’d expect nothing short of a mind-blowing New Year’s Eve party lineup from a club that has for so long commanded so much respect and been the site of so many great musical memories. This year, the two-story nightclub in Downtown Miami will host trance legend Markus Schulz and techno legend Loco Dice as it’s NYE curators, ensuring a night perfect for any kind of music lover.
Those looking for a NYE celebration that’s low-key yet still up-scale will find satisfaction at Miami Beach’s opulent Haven Lounge. The masquerade-themed party will feature Miami legends Niko Javan and Shaunduval, an open bar for $100 if you want it, and no cover at the door whether or not you purchased tickets. Located near Lincoln Road, it’s the perfect place to start off 2015 in subtle style.
Still one of Miami’s best kept secrets, Basement is the disco-loving-club-kid’s dream. Small and intimate, the club brings a very Paradise Garage feel with its eclectic blend of deep house and modern remixes of disco classics. Every bottle order comes with a party tray full of candy, and you can snag giant smiley face lollipops with your Old Fashioned at the bar. Oh, and there’s a bowling alley and ice skating rink within the venue as well, in case you tire of dancing. This NYE, Basement will host sounds by Soul Clap, Pillow Talk, Navid Izadi and more.
Intended as sort of a f*** you to bourgeois mega-clubs with three-figure cover charges on NYE, Treehouse has a different kind of party atmosphere in mind. This New Year’s Eve, they’ll be keeping the cover charge low and the energy high as longtime resident and Clock Recordings label boss Hugo Bianco joins forces with Terrace Room legend Patrick M as PH+. Leave your stilettos at home and get ready for a long night of techno and good vibrations at this no–frill, all-about-the-music event.
