Meet Icon, the Miami nightclub that moved into Mansion’s landmark mansion in 2015. At 11-years-old, Mansion was in its sunset years by nightlife standards and closed its velvet-roped doors in September. But as a South Beach staple and notorious VIP playground, it meant Icon had big dancin’ shoes to fill... and fill them it has. Not to be outdone by prior standards, Icon fills the historic, 30,000-square-foot space with art-deco inspiration courtesy of Miami firm Thirlwall Designs.
Much like its predecessor, Icon’s staple buffet of international superstar DJs will continue to dazzle bottle poppers and EDM lovers alike. The club’s January grand opening featured Ruby Rose, and the weeks following have seen the likes of Borgore, Deorro, Kyroman and DJ Mag’s 2015 Top 100 winners Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Mansion was a staple on this very Top 100 Clubs list for more than half its own life, showered with happy praise from diehards and angry Twitter rants from Deadmau5. There’s no reason to believe that the formidable Icon won’t be just as popular.
