SOUTH BEACH — Dubbed as Miami’s first ever "all-inclusive nightclub,” Copa Room boasts aerialists, acrobats and Las Vegas-style shows, plus a premium open bar all evening long. Tickets start at $80, but once you get in that’ll give you all the drinks and entertainment you can handle from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Copa Room is open Wednesday to Sunday at 1235 Washington Avenue (formerly Mansion/Icon spaces). Call 786-216-7785 for more details. 

SOUTH BEACH — A new mega club has arrived to South Beach.  Called ORA, the 10,000-square-foot, multimillion dollar space features artwork by Banksy and Murakami amongst others. If dancing the night away isn’t your speed, then head to its upstairs “Anti-Social Room,” which is decked out in leather seating and boiserie paneled walls, with craft cocktails by industry vet Rodger Gillespie like cocktail flights that serve three mini versions of classics like martinis and Collins. ORA is now open at 2000 Collins Avenue. 

MIDTOWN — Making its debut during Art Basel last month, Midtown’s Bitter Truth is the brainchild of some of Miami’s favorite bartenders including Bryan Canales, Teddy Collins, Sarah Porter and Ryan Alfrey. The space features a full bar with seasonal craft beers and cocktails, plus “steampunk” decor like unfinished hand-cut Dade Pine bars that even sport the original bark. The space is now open Wednesday to Saturday from 4 p.m. to 5 a.m. at 3252 NE 1st Avenue, Suite 124.

SOUTH BEACH — Falling in the more low-key category is newcomer South Pointe Tavern. Housed in the South of Fifth neighborhood it claims to have the largest selection of whiskeys and tequilas on the beach, plus a beverage menu created by Rob Ferrara featuring takes on classics like Negronis and Margaritas. A small food menu is also available with items like flatbreads, charcuterie, salads and paninis. South Pointe Tavern is now open daily Monday - Thursday 11 a.m. - midnight, Fridays & Saturdays 11 a.m. - 2 a.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

SOUTH BEACH — Debuting inside the AC Hotel is its newest bar Gin + Collins. The highlight of the menu is — no surprise here — gin, with a menu of variations of the gin and tonic being the star. Other types of craft cocktails are also on hand, along with a Mexican-inspired bar bites. Gin + Collins is open Sunday to Thursday from 5p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 5 p.m. to midnight at 2912 Collins Avenue.
