Few pursuits tap into the pleasures of nightlife more than dancing. Giving yourself over to the rhythms, the lights, and the energy is a total release. When you want that feeling, look into this list to find the best dance clubs in Miami. World-renowned (or just plain amazing and local) DJs get the crowds moving, and other patrons ensure that there's plenty to see along the way.
If you're looking for something with a more tropical flavor, check out Mango's right on Ocean Drive. It's the type of place you've seen in tourism commercials for South Beach, full of color and professional dancers and salsa and cha cha cha.
If you want the full-on SoBe celebrity treatment, you'll have to make your way to a place like Story or LIV. Both of these have had the likes of P.Diddy, Jay-Z and Brittney Spears in their midst. These are the tough to breach velvet rope-type joints that will not allow you to walk in if you just stepped out of the ocean (unless of course you're supermodel Giselle Bundchen).
Places like Purdy Lounge and Electric Pickle bring dance club nights to the more laid back hipster masses of Miami. And if you're looking for a truly unforgettable but wholly unpretentious good dance time, there's nothing quite like Hoy Como Ayer in Little Havana.
