Basement Miami

2901 Collins Avenue | Miami Beach, Florida |  786-641-7119 |

It’s not the music your dad listened to or the stuff your mom played in the car on the way to school. It’s not about Saturday Night Fever, although we don’t mind a bit of hairspray and spandex. It’s about taking back the nightclub experience. It’s about inclusivity rather than exclusivity. It’s about dancing like nobody’s watching. Above all, it’s about contributing. We want you to be involved; we want you to express yourself; we want you to have fun.

Developed by the legendary Ian Schrager of Studio 54, we’ve got a lineup curated by NYC nightlife impresario Nicholas Matar, branding and vibes from Miami veteran Ben Pundole, and a whole bunch of local swagger from Josh Wagner. Come to dance, come to bowl, come to skate on our mini ice rink. Come dressed up or dressed down, keep it classy or behave badly, just remember: the greatest crime is to be boring. #GiveSomeGetSome

Here is what the locals are saying:
“Oh yea, it’s a fun place and a very “Miami” and “South Beach” to go to. ”  –Monica G. via YELP | Miami, FL
