Remember Bar?

It was the nightlife spot on NE 14th Street that became one of the city's most infamous watering holes until it closed in July 2011. A lot of people were involved with it, but the main contributors were Raul Sanchez (now of Peachfuzz fame), Pres Rodriguez, and the onetime Miami gallery OHWOW (which has since relocated to Los Angeles).

Well, surprise! It's back -- sort of.

Go hard at The Garret with Mr. Pauer.

Gather up tu gente and get ready to go hard at the Cultura Dura Tour.

On Thursday, October 30, Mr. Pauer (AKA Toto Gonzalez) and his amigos at Mike's Harder and Remezcla will be bringing electrópico beats to The Garret at Grand Central for a night of baile, rumba, and lots of spiked lemonade.

Electrópico, as Pauer explains, is "the new sound of Latin music," the next wave on the urban scene.

"It's mixing together trap, moombahton, and everything the new generation of Hispanics listen to, and creating this new fusion."

The Void in Wynwood: "Everything From Porn Stars to A&Rs"

Resident DJ Betty gets the party poppin' at The Void.

Have you seen Enter the Void? It's probably the head-trippiest movie on Netflix. And while most people react with an "ohmahgawd wut?," Miami hip-hop booker, DJ, and nightlife host Sean Bang was inspired to throw a monthly party.

The film revolves around kids in Japan who get themselves into a lot of trouble after some conversations at a Tokyo nightclub called The Void. After watching this flick, Bang decided to capture that conversational vibe in a unique nightlife setting, so he started The Void at Wynwood's LMNT.

He says it's about bringing good music and people together to bridge the cultural gap. At least it's not as scary as the movie.

Oh, Halloween.

A night when bloodsuckers rockin' red pasties and fishnet stockings fist-pump with flesh-eating zombies, when half-naked camo girls grind up on shredded Top Gun pilots, when sexy superheroes down candy corn jello shots alongside evil villains.

The Dancers of Mansion Nightclub: A Video Interview

Dangling from the ceiling in diamond-studded pasties, flirting their way through the drunken crowd with snazzy props, and dancing atop the DJ booth with neon lights wrapped around their waists... these ladies are the dancers and aerialists of Mansion Nightclub.

Bardot Miami's Fifth Anniversary: "Still Fresh, Still Exciting, Still New"


It's tough to say what the greatest show at Bardot has been over the past five years, but that time Dwayne Wade rented out the Wynwood lounge in 2012 for Gabrielle Union's 40th-birthday pajama jam was one for the books.

"Doug E. Fresh played," recalls David Sinopoli, the guy responsible for booking all of Bardot's shows. "He's like, 'Yo, I've got a friend in the crowd, and he's gonna come spit a couple bars.' It was fuckin' Will Smith. He surprised Gabrielle Union. He had a mask on, took the mask off, and we're like, 'Wait, what?'"
