Once a dilapidated yet sprawling one-story warehouse just off of Biscayne Boulevard, the original Club Space has come a long way since its 2003 inception. Emphasizing an egalitarian, no-nonsense approach towards the customers, as well as the then-unheard of 24-hour operating permit, Club Space promised an exciting, over-the-top club experience for the discerning dance-music enthusiast.
Space of March 2016 bears only a passing semblance today yet holds the same ethos. Having undergone several changes in theme. Mother Nature inspires a bamboo-decorated DJ booth situated like a lion's throne on the terrace.
Spacious VIP tables line the perimeter of this house jungle, while go-go dancers show off their most titillating moves and still, unlike South Beach's pretentious and pricey mega clubs, Space is for foot-shuffling patrons who are there simply and purely for the music. The 25,000-square-foot downtown dance oasis is a must-visit, especially during after-hours.
While the lower room caters more to the EDM crowd, the real club magic happens upstairs in the iconic Space terrace and loft. We could start rattling off the names of the DJs who spin here, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a decent DJ who hasn’t. From Miami locals to electro A-listers, rap heavyweights to techno titans and everything in between, this Space is where you want your night to end and your morning to begin.
