is one of those sites that seems to be endlessly generating best-of lists that other people then write about, thus creating an endless Internet circle-jerk. Mind if we join? Oh, it's of some local interest. The site has released its 2010 list of the "top 10 nightclubs in the world,"
and two are in Miami, and both are in hotels: LIV
at the Fontainebleau, and Wall
at the W.
The AskMen surveys have always displayed an interest in uber-scene-y side of nightlife, so of course these places get points for their eye candy, perceived exclusivity, and overall expensiveness. Here's what the site had to say about LIV:
Set inside the legendary Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, LIV is 30,000 square feet of unadulterated fun. Fusing the concept of a luxurious lounge with a high-energy dance club, LIV is rumored to be the highest-grossing club in the world, and not because it is big, but because people there spend big. LIV is the definitive Miami nightlife experience -- there is nothing like it.
And about Wall:
It's a town known for its nightlife, so you have to do something big to get noticed in Miami. Wall at the W in South Beach did just that: It brought together more than a few legendary Miami club owners and set out to build the hottest dance club on the strip. Mission accomplished. Since its opening, the Wall has risen to the pinnacle of the Miami social scene, and this dark and sexy locale is on a meteoric rise to clubland-legend status. Don't expect to get in there cheap, though: the emphasis is placed squarely on the table-holders.
The others on the list include a couple of celeb-heavy bottle-service joints in Manhattan, a few Western European clubs, and exactly zero in central or Eastern Europe, or anywhere in Asia. Seriously? We do co-sign on the awesomeness of Paris' Rex Club, though. Click here
