The Adrienne Arsht Center, home to Broadway musicals, opera, and tributes to Nat King Cole, might be an unlikely setting for a pop-up nightclub featuring specialty cocktails -- but then again, this is Miami, the land of fantasies, palm trees, sunsets, and glittery people. So why not have a club in an opera house? Short Order decided to check it out.

The doors haven't even opened yet at Club Oberon, Miami's liveliest new hot spot, and already there's a scene. Mr. Oberon and his girlfriend, Tytania, arrive with none other than Harry Wayne Casey, better known as KC (of the Sunshine Band), and some disco diva on a white horse.

Once the doors open, we're greeted by the hostess, Pepper, who welcomes us and asks if we might want to check our bags. All the better for dancing, she informs us. And yes. Everyone is expected to dance.

If we're going to dance, we need some liquid courage, so we head to one of the bars set up. Watch out, our bartender warns us -- you never know when a fairy might drop in.
