Like a chameleon, Miami's nightlife exists in a variety of forms. There are neighborhood bars in every corner, and roped-off nightclubs where celebs and those who wish to be mingle in the dark. Then there are dimly-lit dives--perfect for lonely hearts and anyone looking for a good story to tell. And then of course we have the laid-back lounges of the Magic City.
These lounges are frequently composed of comfortable seating, stellar drink menus, and crowds that are a blend of sophisticated and alternative. The music at such joints is always miles above other drinking venues, and while some dancing does often go down, it's never required. Plush seating is almost always present.
Folks who have been on the scene a while know places like Purdy Lounge--a late-night venue for hip hop and latin flavors that's as Miami as it gets. Joints like Cafeina and Bardot, both popular Wynwood spots, have also been keeping crowds happy for some time.
There are plenty of newcomers, too, though. Bodega, for example, has only been buzzworthy since late 2014, but has manages to build a strong following since. And Nina's House has less than six months under its belt, but folks are already flocking to it.
If you're wondering what other lounges we think are 10Best worthy, we've got you covered.
