Mova Lounge Closes: South Beach and Brickell

Sorry, gents. It's time to say goodbye to Mova Lounge.

The 305's nightlife scene is notoriously fickle.

Since last year, more clubs than ever before, specifically in Miami Beach's Lincoln Road and downtown's Brickell neighborhoods, have relocated to other parts of town or closed their doors.

Places like Score, the Van Dyke Café, and now Mova Lounge have all moved or shut down.

On June 21, one of the Magic City's best gay clubs (and New Times' Best of Miami Reader's Poll finalists) will be closing its Brickell and South Beach locations, marking the end of "sexy bartenders and hot shot boys," and parties like Foreplay Fridays and Shout! Karaoke.

"A couple of weeks ago, we were told that the property had been purchased," club owner Babak Movahedi says about the Brickell lounge.

"We didn't have any idea this was gonna happen," especially since he opened the second Mova location last summer, "but it is what it is. Things happen."

I should've known from the picture why I had never heard of this club. Not that their's anything wrong with that.


Landlord of the Miami Beach location probably go sick and tired of getting noise violations.  Question is did the Mova owner get to preside over his own noise cases as a special master and paid employee of Miami Beach?
