29 Apr Miami Entertainment
In a city with so much to offer its guests, it goes without saying that the nightlife in Miami is pretty impressive. Like the restaurant scene, the influence of so many different cultures on the music and entertainment in the city means that it is second to none.
Music and dance clubs playing a vast and varied selection of sounds, comedy clubs, theatre opera and of course the movies – you really have it all to choose from so all you have to do is decide. Well, it is recommended that you stock up on energy too as you are certainly going to need it. With the majority of clubs staying open until 5.00am every night, it is something that takes quite a bit of getting used to for those of you who have traveled from less fortunate social scenes.
And in a city where there’s so much going on you are probably wondering how you are going to keep up with everything. Well, fear not. There are numerous excellent sources which provide up to the minute details on all things entertaining in Miami. Check out the Weekend section of the Miami Herald on Fridays or the Lively Arts section of the same paper on Sundays for reviews and listings. The New Times, a free weekly magazine which comes out every Thursday is also very informative for those of you who are into the arts. Finally, to find out what’s going on among Miami’s vibrant gay community try to get your hands on David, Miamigo or Scoop which are widely available coming up to the weekend.
Finally, if you’re curious as to where the particularly hot spots are located look no further than the Art Deco District and CocoWalk in Coconut Grove among others. But, the reality for those of you staying in South Beach is that there is absolutely no need to go so far afield. You will have ample venues within minutes of your hostel but remember that regardless of the establishment or the location the legal drinking age in the state of Florida is 21 and this is strictly enforced at all times.
