Miami’s known for a lot of things: Art Deco, Dan Marino, Chicken Kitchen; but most notably South Beach and the debaucherous, world-class nightclubs that it’s famous for. Typically, when one thinks of these nightspots, a few things rightfully and historically come to mind: beautiful, wealthy, statuesque people rubbing elbows with celebrities who all arrived in Ferraris, bathed in the lights and excess of the best nightlife outside of Ibiza.
South Beach’s nightlife is legendary for all of the right reasons of course, but there comes a time in every Miami audiophile’s life when they want to hear great music and enjoy a world-class party without having to make the trip over the causeway. The Vagabond
in downtown Miami is a different breed of nightclub, with its roots firmly planted in the East Village bar scene all while keeping a firm grip on Miami’s expectations and flamboyance; The Vagabond
exceeds these with flying colors every night, and every party, weather it be hip hop, house, electro, or even the weekly Friday night party that includes live indie acts from around the nation.
The strongest attribute that The Vagabond
has going for it are three separate rooms that boast three completely different atmospheres and music choices at the same time, every single night. The front bar generally gets the party rolling with an easily accessible bar, as well as ample room to collect yourself and relax a bit; a DJ spinning an eclectic mix of electro, Euro pop and '80s dance favorites to get you in the mood. Upon walking into the back room, the atmosphere completely morphs into a hardcore, state of the art dance floor that plays some of the best electro and house in Miami. When the time comes to relax and enjoy a great social atmosphere, the open air patio bar supplies ample space to grab a smoke and a cocktail and enjoy a bit of socializing before last call.
is the perfect spot for anyone who craves the dance party and a hip crowd but wants to keep it casual without sacrificing the Miami nightclub experience in the name of comfort.
