Concierge.com's insider take:
Bella Rose's Sunday-night bash is a more locals-driven alternative to Nikki Beach's tourist-heavy scene. The dark South Beach lounge is filled with transvestites, models teetering in vertiginous heels, and a "murderer" on the loose to make for a glam goth vibe. Party producer Lex Mincolla is on a mission to "kill" one club-goer every week, with all the gory (fake) action filmed in stop-motion animation in the club's bathroom and turned into a cult phenom on YouTube the following week. Thursday nights are themed Thuggery (think old-school hip-hop and 32-ounce beers), while Friday and Saturdays are more straightforward with dancing to '80s hits. And even though it's in the midst of South Beach's high-rolling club scene, this is definitely not the place to go for bottle service.
Open Thursdays through Sundays 11 pm to 5 am.
