The Road is rubble.

Last month, the infamous century-old boozing establishment at 626 S. Miami Avenue slung its final beer and a shot. The Last Call Closing Party ended with bleary eyes and empty glasses at 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning.

Over the weekend, Miami's Oldest Bar celebrated its 102nd anniversary.

And today, it was demolished.

Meet South Beach's Ten Best Club Dancers

Working as a nightlife entertainer seems like a pretty sweet job.

Getting paid to wear extravagant costumes, dance alongside world-class DJs, meet celebrities, score free drinks... It's like a dream come true.

Yes, there may be an endless list of perks. But truth is, having a career in the nightlife biz is no joke, especially if we're talkin' about the dancers.

Most of the ladies you see dancing in pleather bras and neon wigs are trained professionals who've been perfecting their craft for most of their lives. And aside from working the club, many of these women also juggle college classes and full-time day jobs. They aspire to open up their own businesses and even publish a book one day.

Meet South Beach's ten best club dancers.

Little Havana's Ball & Chain: "Our Goal Is to Make It Authentic"

Photo by Laurie Charles

The neon sign for the "World Famous Ball & Chain Bar and Lounge" sits above a green-and-white striped awning, illuminating SW Eighth Street, much like it did nearly 80 years ago.

"The concept of Ball & Chain was to keep it as if it had remained open throughout the years," explains Bill Fuller, who owns the Little Havana gem with his childhood buddies Zack and Ben Bush.

"That if the Ball & Chain wouldn't have closed, this is what it would look like today."

Sidebar: A Photo Tour of Brickell's New Favorite Hangout

Categories: Nightlife, Photos

Sidebar in Brickell might be your new favorite hangout.

Tucked away beside I-95, Sidebar promises to be a haven for those who think nightlife hoods like Wynwood and downtown have seen better days.

But Brickell? Yes, places like Kukaramakara, Fifty, and Blue Martini already exist in the area, but they tend to serve the occasional weekend warrior who needs to blow off some steam after a long work week.

Sidebar is more akin to nearby joints like Blackbird Ordinary and the now-defunct (temporarily?) Tobacco Road, in that this is more of a neighborhood watering hole meets music venue. And walking through the space, it has an aesthetic that you see more often in neighborhoods like Wynwood and Park West. (One that you might see popping up more often around western Brickell and eastern Little Havana as creatives flee looking for cheaper rent.)
