Downtown’s club scene has taken great strides from a desolate warehouse destination to a thriving hipster scene now that the nearby Wynwood Arts District has a burgeoning gallery, restaurant and bar circuit attracting Miami’s monied crowd. While the early devotees of Club SPACE see this gentrification as the death of cool, there is little room to argue with the increased traffic, sophisticated nightlife and additional security currently in place in the now popular (and populated) area.
SPACE comprises a multi-room mega club with different formats indoors and out. Originally a desolate warehouse, the venue features state of the art lighting and sound equipment and a permit to do business around the clock – something completely remarkable on the nightlife scene where the city government often battles with promoters over noise levels late at night. Parties that start in the lounge gradually work their way out to the Terrace where the after-hours crowd dons sunglasses to shield them as they dance into the Miami dawn.
SPACE attracts the biggest names in world music who join an evolving cast of talented resident DJS who included Oscar G, Edgar V, and Ivano Bellini who over the years have warmed up the night for Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha & Digweed and Deep Dish Danny Tenaglia. With recored-breaking attendance levels set at the WMC and Ultra events, SPACE remains at the top of its game for large format clubs in the roster of nightspots all across the world. Visitors to South Beach should plan at least one night exploring the alternate universe of Downtown Miami’s most exciting warehouse dance venue – SPACE Miami. More at www.clubspace.com.
