The Most Expensive Nightclubs in Miami

The Most Expensive Nightclubs in Miami

If there’s one nightlife scene in the U.S. where it’s really hard to try and have a cheap night out, it’s Miami. There are those places in Miami that won’t have you spending too much money, but if you’re looking to have a memorable night out at a popular place, you’re definitely not going to find yourself at those spots. While some of us like to avoid an expensive night out, there are those who have a different philosophy when spending money on the weekend. We’ve put together a little list of the most expensive clubs in Miami, and believe it or not, they’re all located in South Beach.

SET
320 Lincoln Road
Miami Beach, FL

While at other nightclubs in Miami, many people often worry about the cover at the door, things are a little different at SET. Rather than hoping you don’t have to pay much at the door, the main concern is actually getting in. After you manage to get past the velvet ropes, you can expect to pay top dollar at the bar. They do have the best bottles on the market at this place, but expect to pay well over what you’d get it for at your local liquor store. Expect your average cocktail to run you about $15 a pop, and if you really are worried about the door price, don’t expect to pay anything under $20 on an off-night. The plus side is, if you are willing to pay, this is the nicest and most exclusive club in South Beach.

Mansion
1235 Washington Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Finding the most popular nightclub in South Beach shouldn’t be too difficult, just ask anyone in the area and they’ll point you directly to Mansion. With Paris Hilton, P. Diddy, and other celebrities frequenting this club throughout the year, you really shouldn’t expect this place to be a big money saver. Cover will run you at least $20, and although it’s not really a mission to get in this place (considering they're trying to go for more of a "concert" mentality) the drinks at the bar will definitely set you back a bit. The experience at Mansion for electronic dance music fans is what really sets this place apart, that’s why they don’t mind coming to their Saturday night party and spending away.

Nikki Beach Club
1 Ocean Drive
Miami Beach, FL 33139

So we know that Nikki Beach Club isn’t your typical "nightclub" per say; however, it is a club, and it is one of the most popular nightlife venues in Miami. That said, it’s also one of the most expensive clubs to party at in Miami, whether it’s at night or during the day. Unless you come during their happy hour, drinks here are not cheap, and their signature mojito will run you about $15. That may not be a lot to you, but when you’re trying to get your drink on, you’re talking a lot of money. Many enjoy coming in the day for lunch/dinner and drinks. The food here is insanely good, but be ready to shell out some dough for that as well. Nikki Beach’s reputation is global, but for the locals who have it in their backyard, they prefer their visits to be on special occasions.

LIV
4441 Collins Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139

When it comes to the end all be all of expensive nightclubs in Miami, you really can’t compare to LIV. The Vegas-style nightlife venue located inside of the Fontainebleau Hotel is the biggest and most lavish nightclub in the city, but its door is notorious and the prices at the bar are unheard of. If you’re looking to get table service at LIV, then you better be willing to spend at least $2,000, because if you aren’t then you can just walk your ass to the bar every time you’d like a drink (not to mention there’s a rocks fee here. Yep, $2 for ice). The cover here is $30 for guys and $20 for girls, and that’s on off-nights, meaning the chances of you knowing the DJ that night will be slim to none. However, if you’re looking for the premier night in Miami where many beautiful people like to go and true Miami ballers like to shell out cash, then there’s no place better than LIV.

Louis
2325 Collins Avenue
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Out of our list of most expensive nightclubs in Miami, we think that Louis may be the most attractive venue here. SET may have a bit of an edge on it, but when it comes to creative décor, you really can’t beat Louis Bar and Lounge located inside of the Gansevoort South hotel on Collins Avenue in South Beach. This Opium Group venue can be quite pricey, with drinks running for at least $15, unless you're ordering a soda (and that soda will run you about $7 by the way). If you’re smart, we suggest taking out some cash before getting to Louis. If you only have plastic handy, there’s a $50 cover, so be prepared to drink… meaning have three drinks which will then get you to your minimum limit.
