Laid back lounges, hip restaurants, cool clubs and fancy bars - it's all about nightlife in Miami. Here is our compilation for your night - and your day - out.

  • Joe’s Stone Crab

    Heads of State, Oscar winners, sports stars: They’ve all been here, and they keep coming back! Opened in 1913 the restaurant employs now some 400 people. “But we are still a family business”, says restaurant manager Brian Johnson. The eldest clan member, Madame Jo Ann Bass, drops by daily to keep an eye on things.

  • Bodega Taqueria y Tequila

    Every evening people flock to this inconspicuous side street in Miami Beach, where rugged men with perspiring foreheads hand out tacos from an Airstream truck. It seems like all of Miami meets here: tourists off the beach, the local kids before heading off to a party. A fake toilet door leads to a hidden bar used as a venue for some great concerts.

  • Tap Tap Restaurant

    Opened in 1994 by Haitian film-maker Katherine Kean, this place is a restaurant, gallery and cultural centre all in one, and an important meeting place for the local community. As piquant as the spices are the works of art – all by Haitian artists – which decorate the walls and tables.
