Few cities offer the wealth of evening entertainment options that Miami does, so if you're looking for things to do at night in Miami, you're in luck! Miami is more than beaches, shopping, and nightclubs (though there are plenty of those), and we're here to give you a run down of the many choices.
The American Airlines Arena is one Miami's favorite entertainment centers. The arena opened its doors in 2000, and since then it has been a hub of activity in bustling Downtown Miami. As the home of the Miami Heat, the AAA is packed most nights from late fall through spring and even summer if they make it deep enough into the NBA playoffs. The arena is also the site of numerous concerts and events that come to Miami.
If you like adding a little culture into your routine, the Perez Art Museum Miami may be the place to spend an evening. Designed by award-winning architects, the museum is one of Miami's true crown jewels. In addition to its art and variety of exhibits, they also play host to a variety of weekly and monthly events.

Come for the tacos and stay for the turn up, or vice versa. Either way, you can't go wrong with swinging by Bodega. On the surface, Bodega appears to be another hole-in-the-wall, but that food truck serves up some of Miami's best tacos, and just behind a nearby door disguised as a bathroom lies one of the best bars and lounges in South Beach.

E11even is Miami's only 24-hour bar, so you could really come here at any time of day, but we recommend visiting at night or, better yet, after hours when things really get popping. E11even is a bar, lounge, club, and cabaret show all in one, so stop by, have a drink, and take in the atmosphere.
