Miami’s Top Hip-Hop Clubs

Let’s face it, when it comes to music in Miami, it’s primarily known for two genres, electronic dance music and hip-hop (more so rap). While on Saturday nights EDM seems to rule the DJ booth, Friday nights in Miami are all about hip-hop. But with the endless nightlife venues in the city, it can be daunting at times to decide where exactly to take your entourage, that’s why we here at Clubplanet have decided to whittle down the list to only the TOP hip-hop clubs in Miami. Be prepared to take notes and fill in your itineraries, you’re definitely going to want to save these.

 

SoBe Live
1203 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139
 

If you’re a fan of the all-around hip-hop party, then look no further than SoBe Live on South Beach’s infamous Washington Avenue. Pass by on any given Friday or Saturday night, and you’ll see a line out the door or patiently waiting fans. Inside you’ll find one of the best sound systems in the city, a Dynacord that will have the bass from songs like “Blame It” blasting you in the chest. SoBe Live prides themselves in bringing in the best hip hop acts, and last New Year’s Eve they threw a stellar bash featuring the Ying Yang Twins. Three 6 Mafia, D. Woods, Juvenile, you name them and chances are they’ve come through SoBe Live for a special event, and that’s exactly why it’s made our list as one of the best hip-hop clubs in Miami.


 

Mansion
1235 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139
 

If you’re going to write an article about the best hip-hop clubs in Miami, then you have to include one of the hottest nightlife venues that South Beach has ever seen, Mansion. When Diddy comes into town, this venue is without a doubt one of his favorites to host one of his signature club parties. Their Friday night weekly party, We Rock Hip-Hop, is one of the best in the nation, and has hosted the likes of Redman, Rick Ross, DJ Tony Touch and the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff. This place is really special when it comes to the hip-hop. The music is always on point, and the crowd is as lively as it can get on South Beach.


 

Space
34 NE 11th Street
Miami, FL 33132
 

We already know what you’re thinking when you came across Space on our list of best hip-hop clubs, “That place is nothing but house!” Well, that’s where you’re wrong. DJ Radamas, the legendary hip-hop resident at Space, delivers memorable sets every Saturday night, and the main floor is always slammed with rap connoisseurs. This place does have the best sound system and set up in the city, and if you can definitely feel it from the moment you walk in until the second you step out. So next time you’re thinking of going out to a hip-hop club, don’t rule out Space off the bat. If you don’t believe, you’ll have to go for yourself and thank us later.


 

Purdy Lounge
1811 Purdy Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139
 

Located on Purdy Avenue, Purdy Lounge is probably the most appropriately named venue on this list. This venue hosts some of the best musical acts in Miami, from the Spam All Stars to Rachel Goodrich, but when it comes to their Saturday night party, it’s all about the hip-hop. Ranked #7 on the ‘World’s Best Bars’ top 100 list, you can already imagine what a full-fledged hip-hop party would be like.  The lighting is always perfect, the service is always on point, and there’s a pool table…may not seem like much, but after a few drinks it’s always good to get your game on. Best part is, you’re in South Beach, so the view is pretty nice once you walk out the door.

 

 

Pangaea
5711 Seminole Way
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33314
 

Although this venue isn’t technically in Miami, everyone from Magic City doesn’t mind making the drive up to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to pay a little visit to Pangaea. Although it’s connected to Gryphon, Pangaea stands alone as one of the best hip-hop clubs in South Florida. The aesthetics all around the club give it an intimate feel, but when the lights come on and the music blasts, this is one of the best places for hip-hop. Thursday and Friday nights are best, so if you don’t mind making the 20-minute trek up north, we definitely recommend checking out one of the best hip-hop clubs in your area.


 

Dream Nightclub
1532 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139
 

Dream Nightclub is located in the heart of all of the fun in South Beach, Washington Avenue.  Not too big, but definitely not too small at all, Dream will always have people anxiously waiting to get inside. Once you’re in you’ll definitely be pleased with what you hear and what you see. This is definitely a great venue if you want to bring your significant other out. Although there are a lot of singles, there are a lot of couples as well so you’ll have a nice time mingling in. The staff at Dream love getting their party formatting on point, so when they say it’s going to be a good hip-hop party do take their word for it, that’s why it’s in our list of top hip-hop clubs in Miami.


 

Cameo
1445 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139
 

There are two words that you should know about when it comes to this venue; Flash Fridays. The infamous hip-hop party that takes place every Friday night features the sounds of the one and only DJ Irie, THE best hip-hop DJ that Miami has. From the start of his set to the end, he delivers quality hits that you’d expect, but at the same time wouldn’t expect. The man knows how to read his crowd, and that’s exactly why they love him so much. The sights and sounds of Cameo give Mansion a run for its money, but the two each offer their own distinctive vibe.
