No relation to its Ibiza namesake, Space Miami is every bit as central to Miami's club scene as the Playa d'en Bossa superclub is to the White Isle. Located downtown on 34 NE 11th Street, Space Miami shares the same legendary history of terrace raving too.
But there is one crucial difference. Whilst the terrace at Ibiza's Space has long been covered (and more recently thumped with Draconian licensing restrictions), the Miami experience continues uncovered and unrestricted to this day.
As Toolroom's Mark Knight states: "There aren't many clubs left in the world where you can start playing at 6am and finish at 4pm, let alone in the sunshine."
And it is that unbeatable feeling of dancing outdoors amongst the palm fronds, looking out across the backdrop of Miami's iconic skyline, that makes Space Miami the clubbing experience it is.
"The Space terrace is the best dancefloor in the world," believes Desyn Masiello from SOS. "It's been going on 'til the sunshine hours of Sunday afternoon every weekend for the past 10 years.
"The Dynacore soundsystem there is as good as it gets, the owner of the club is also an expert in sound and lighting and ensures it is always perfectly tuned... playing or dancing there in the daylight just cannot be beaten."
It's high praise indeed but to lay all the credit for Space's magic on the terrace alone would be an injustice on the heritage of the Miami house scene.
For it is in the steaming hedonistic abyss of the dark Space main room where the legendary Oscar G has embarked on his famed 10-hour marathons of dark grooves, tribal funk and insistent basslines since joining as resident back in 2001. One half of seminal production outfits Murk, The Funky Green Dogs and Liberty City, Oscar goes down in the books as one of the architects of what was once so renowned as the 'Miami sound'. To this day, he remains a vital institution at the club. At least twice a month, Oscar can be found leading Space's main room on a journey through funk and bass.
Of equal legend, though, are the many WMC marathons that Danny Tenaglia has taken the Space main room on - classic nights that turned into lost days they remain renowned as the ultimate Tenaglia experience, a clubbing medal that many talk about but few can claim to properly own.
Big hitting guests like Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli and Mark Knight have also all appeared.
