You could spend your entire vacation in Miami beach eating drinking, and clubbing, but if you’ve got a soft spot for live music, you’re in the right place too. The diverse blend of cultures that call Miami home gives an international flavor to the Miami Beach live music scene, and add the fact that countless national and international acts swing by Miami on their tours, and you have one of the best live music scenes in the world. These are just some of our favorites:
Mango’s Tropical Cafe: Mango’s has been a famous South Beach destination for years now. It combines a nightclub and a restaurant infused with a non-stop “Havana” style rhythm. If you prefer things a bit more ‘reserved’, Mango’s is the wrong place for you! If you don’t mind letting your hair down however, this is where you need to be! The entertainment and live music ranges from the exotic and sensual Mango’s dancers, Samba, Mariachis, Conga, and Salsa shows. As for the drinks themselves, Mango’s is famous for their Daiquiris and Mojitos. It is possible to start at lunch and eat, drink, and dance the night away until about 5 AM. Check out their upcoming schedule on their own website or make reservations.
Jazid: Jazid may have started out with just live jazz, but in the past decade, it has branched into everything from Latin reggae to Hip Hop DJs. If the Mojitos are going to your head and you fancy yourself quite the singer, every Mondays is karaoke night. You can check their live music schedule out right here.
Sazon: Every Friday night there’s live music at Sazon, giving you a chance to relax after a hectic week of partying in Miami. Rock up between 8 and 10pm for a laid back atmosphere, a full bar, and a plate of what was recently voted as the best Cuban food in South Beach.
Lapidus Lounge: Looking for something with a little more sophistication? If you want to enjoy champagne, wine, and cocktails in a great atmosphere, then the Lapidus Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach is the spot for you. There’s usually a live DJ spinning lounge music until midnight. For a truly upscale vibe, this is the place to go.
