Miami’s nightlife and bar scene cater mainly to the 21 and over crowd, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun in the Magic City without an ID. Here are five spots where you can have a great time if you’re at least 18.
1. Club Space
A cornerstone of Miami’s club scene, Space in Downtown Miami has served as a rite of passage for clubgoers for nearly two decades. The two-level club is also 18-and-over for ladies (sorry fellas!).
34 NE 11th Street, Miami
Believe it or not, you can be underage and still turn up on a Tuesday – at a strip club, no less! Head to King Of Diamonds for their College Night, aka Tuition Tuesdays. Admission is $20, and you don’t have to be 21 to enter.
17800 Ipco Road, Miami
If you’re under 21 and living in the Broward area, head to Arabica on a Friday or Saturday night. Despite its lackluster facade, this Davie hookah bar is the weekend turn-up spot, featuring a live DJ, a dance floor and some of the best people watching you’ll ever find. Must be 18+ to enter.
9054 W State Road 84, Davie
4. The Bend
While you must be 21 to drink at this retro-inspired Hialeah watering hole, you can still participate in a game of darts or brave the stage during The Bend’s Saturday night karaoke sessions – no ID required.
6844 NW 169th Street, Hialeah
5. Just The Funny
Up for a laugh? Check out Just The Funny on Coral Way. The comedy club hosts shows every Friday and Saturday, running from 9 p.m. onward.
3119 Coral Way (2nd Floor), Miami
