Score strikes a move! Here's to bigger and better bashes.

For the past decade and a half, Lady Gaga, Paulina Rubio, Macy Gray, and divas of the 305 have stormed their way through the black doors of Score.

But after 15 years, Lincoln Road's legendary nightclub is taking its 'tude, perfectly chiseled and coiffed men, and hardcore party rep to SoBe's main stretch, Washington Avenue.

"We've been open for 15 years because we've been moving with what's happening with society," explains partner Luis Morera. "I feel this was our next step, what we needed to do."

Come October 11, Score will officially take over the former Liquid Nightclub space.

The once popular lounge, owned by the infamous nightclub impresario Chris Paciello, made headlines back in 1996 when Paciello smashed a beer bottle against the face of Michael Quinn, the former Mr. Universe, after the bodybuilder called a patron the N-word.

"We're one of the only clubs that's kept the same name and owners, so I definitely dare to say, yes, I think we're the perfect fit for this venue," Morera claims.

Unlike the Lincoln Road watering hole, which will continue running till October 1, the new Score will be divided into two venues: Score Bar and Trade Nightclub.

"The first thing you encounter [at Score Bar] is a brick wall with graffiti, main bar on the left side with an old post office look to it, and a seating area," explains Morera.

"There's also a mezzanine with couches for whoever wants to chill, bottle service, crazy LED light-colored mirrors on the ceiling, and another bar. It's kind of a glam rock look."

Write a complaint to the city manager and the mayor, keep pounding them with complaints... this obnoxious dangerous police behavior is becoming way too common in South Florida.

Wow so Hollywood is the same now... Unbelievable. Yeah, South Florida police do not want anything else to do but to harass people and obsess about drugs... I know, it's insane, the cops in Miami Beach are very violent and sadistic too. Same happened to me... I thought they were gonna kill me. Someone needs to treat the mayor this way so they learn that their nany rules make this country worse than Nazi Germany... these attacks by police are worse than any terrorist, drug dealer or user out there. I would rather be surrounded by drug addicts than some overpaid mentally unstable lunatics with guns... Cops are more dangerous than criminals in South Florida today.

Hollywood beach is closed at night as well. I was just sitting out on the catwalk on one of the lifeguard stands and a cop comes driving past on the broadwalk and questions me for 10 minutes threatening to arrest my friend and I. We are both mid 30's and professionals. He actually asked if we were doing drugs up there on the lifeguard stand, asked us for ID, what we did for a living. Bizarre. What kind of country is this when you can't go out on the sand and just watch the waves under the moonlight and have a conversation? WTF?

The city now can hand Lincoln on a plate to the corporate sleaze... Baby Gap or another Starbucks anyone? I am sure the city can't wait to close the road at night just like they did the beach... the only beach in South Florida that is closed at night, so stupid. Oh, and if you walk near parks where playgrounds are installed and do not have a child with you, this city managed to have an ordinance for that too and you will get arrested. Talking about creating jobs for lazy corrupt police... Lets just create a bunch regulations and harass people!! Yey! Even the most conservative cities have less nazi nany laws... but, yeah, it's gonna be a corporate take over on Lincoln. Another squeaky clean corporate theme park that will close at 9p and 6p on Sundays lol.

It's the finals phase of the evil plan: corporate take over on Lincoln, wow... first the city attacks and intimidates gays with it's corrupt brutal police, then they pay everyone off  and hire a bunch of corrupt gay liaisons to hush hush everything, throw a gay pride with nothing but corporate logos and city police in it... and now the Lincoln is handed on a plate to some corporate sleaze... Watch, they gonna now open Baby Gap or something and close the road at 9pm... The city did this to the beach too. When Bower became mayor they issued an ordinance to close the beach at 12 midnight and now police violently attack unsuspecting tourists... it wants to be squeaky clean corporate theme park with police controlling every step you make. oh, by the way, besides having the only beach in South Florida that is closed at night, the city of Miami Beach now has an ordinance where adults can not be at a park or a playground where children are present, unless you are with a child... The most conservative republican cities have less regulations than this corrupt cesspool of so called public servants.
