We all want to let loose and dance the night away from time to time, but where can you go without dealing with the hustle and bustle of South Beach? The options may seem limited, but, luckily for you, the best dance clubs in Downtown Miami are on par with the best in South Beach.

Heart Nightclub

Heart may not have the notoriety of some of Miami's other dance clubs, but it's definitely one of the best in downtown, which is no surprise since its a sister club to Club Space, one of Miami's best dance clubs. While a bit smaller in space, it still boasts three levels of activity, and it opens midweek, catering to the midweek crowd Space misses out on.

Club Space is only open on Saturdays, and for good reason because people would never leave if it were open more than one day per week! You don't simply visit Club Space to party, you're taking your evening from wind sprints to an overnight marathon at Miami's original overnight dance club.

E11even may not be Miami's original overnight club, but it certainly took the concept to another level. E11even is part-night club, part-cabaret show, and easily one of the best dance clubs in Downtown Miami. You won't be the only one dancing the night away here, though. There are Cirque du Soleil-style dancers here to entertain you if you're not in the mood to get out on the dance floor yourself. 

Blackbird offers thrills similar to Downtown Miami's other best dance clubs but with a different energy. It has two rooms: the first is more of a dive bar than a dance club, but the second is an outdoor party that forgoes Miami-chic sensibilities by playing diverse music and offering unadulterated good times.

Floyd has a similar vibe to Blackbird Ordinary in that it's more intimate and does not cater to the stereotypes of what Miami nights encompass. You can also sip on finely-crafted cocktails rather than your standard rum and Cokes. Like Blackbird, there's a bit of diversity in the music this dance club's DJs spin as well.
