Location: Miami, FL, USA

Florida is one of the only states that didn’t go into a complete lockdown during the pandemic, and while the rest of the globe slowed right down, Club Space in Miami barely skipped a beat. The one-of-a-kind venue that put Downtown Miami on the dance music map almost two decades ago, is one of North America’s original superclubs, as well as being one of the few places with a late (read: 24-hour) license. You can easily escape from the world within Space’s confines, while still taking advantage of being outside on the venue’s beautiful outdoor terrace. Making nature part of its interior is one of Space’s signature design features, with hanging plants and a ceiling designed to look like the sky.

Space has been through a few different management groups, but its latest iteration has been a boon for the city and the dance music community worldwide. Space has hosted its usual top-shelf talent over the last year, including Claude VonStroke, Gorgon City, and Green Velvet. The club continues its non-stop festivities with Loco Dice, Moon Boots, Nicole Moudaber, Seth Troxler, and the return of Sasha & John Digweed — which sold out months in advance.

A four-room paradise built for the wild ones, Club Space Miami is America’s only 24-hour nightclub. During the annual Winter Music Conference and Art Basel events, its outdoor terrace becomes a happy refuge for vacationers evading winter weather.

But even on a standard Saturday, when artists like Marco Carola, Solomun and Amelie Lens helm the decks, tropical feels permeate the interiors, where verdant hanging vines and a custom-designed directional d&b audiotechnik soundsystem transform the main floor into a steamy, musical jungle. “We also have the pleasure of maintaining a beautiful aerial garden above the dancefloor and have watched it flourish, becoming more vibrant and filling the terrace with life,” says advertising director, Ricardo J. Mogollon. The clear rooftop ensures that lingering club-goers see the sunrise, but that never means the party has to end.

Poll Clubs 2019: CLUB SPACE

Location: Miami, United States

Capacity: 2,500

Miami’s Club Space has undergone a number of changes since it came under new ownership in 2017. Although it’d gained a reputation as a spot solely for the EDM-inclined, the club — now guided by local promoters Link Miami Rebels and members of the team behind III Points music festival — has now become a de facto hub for forward-thinking music in Miami. With four rooms and two clubs within the venue (Floyd and the Ground), Space plays host to everyone from techno titans such as Ben Klock, house heavyweights including Honey Dijon and The Black Madonna, and even the likes of goth godfather Peter Murphy. With the help of resident DJs Danyelino, Ms Mada, Hardline, Bakke, and Thunderpony, Space has truly become a place where anything can happen — where else can you catch Wu-Tang’s RZA MCing over a Call Super set?

Location: Miami, Florida

A longtime Miami staple — and fixture on our Top 100 Clubs list — Space Miami has been under new ownership for a little over a year, and the 24/7 club now feels like a fresh, inspired reboot of the iconic Ibiza outpost we all knew and loved. Space's new parents are a trio of locals who have been passionately pushing Miami's underground electronic music scene for years: Davide Danese, Coloma Kaboomsky and David Sinopoli know how to bring the world's greatest underground and indie acts to town. A highlight of 2017 was the addition of a new live music venue on the club’s ground floor (aptly named The Ground), which has already hosted the likes of HVOB, Front 242, r&b starlet SZA, and an Anjunadeep label showcase.



Poll Clubs 2016: CLUB SPACE MIAMI

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.
