Where Cheaper is Better

by Colleen Clark

Nightlife in Miami

South Beach's over-the-top after-hours can be a blast—if you don't mind shelling out $400 for a bottle of Absolut or waiting in line for two hours while overly tan ladies in less than clothes scoot past the velvet rope. Head away from the beach, boob jobs, and bros gyrating to Kelly Clarkson remixes, and you'll find the grittier, cultural side of Miami, the Miami that birthed events like Art Basel. Trade bottle service for beers and barbecue with the creative types that congregate at Bar, a divey spot from the guys behind influential gallery OHWOW. Live bands and big-name alterna DJs rock venues like the Vagabond, where musicians and gallerinas congregate around an outdoor firepit, and Grand Central, a train station turned music club. All of these culture clubs channel the anything-goes rowdiness of South Beach—without the $40 door fee.
