Thereโ€™s something about Miami that makes you want to dance. Weโ€™re not sure whether itโ€™s the high levels of Vitamin D, or thereโ€™s something in the water here. Luckily, you wonโ€™t be the only one with the urge to unleash hell on the dance floor, and thanks to the cityโ€™s huge Latin American community, there’s no shortage of places for you to ramp up your moves. Take a look at just some of the best Latin Clubs in the city to get jiggy.ย 

1. Ball and Chainย 

The Historic live music venue Ball and Chain sits in the Cityโ€™s famous Little Havana. It was opened in 1935 and has hosted many notable musicians from Ella Fitzgerald to Duke Ellington. The venue is still a firm favourite with Miami’s night owls and is a great spot to sip on a mojito whilst enjoying a great mix of live music from jazz to salsa.

3. El Patio Wynwood

If you want to gyrate those hips whilst drinking a bucket of beer or two then this is the place for you. If youโ€™re not into beer, then sip on their selection of cocktails – preferably during happy hour. Thereโ€™s a good mix of events too, like the Salsa v Reggaeton night and chilled Sundays with live music and homemade sancocho (a Latin American broth).ย

โ€‹4. Botecoย 

Discover the Brazilian heart in Miami at Boteco. A โ€˜botecoโ€™, in Brazil, is a relaxed bar where patrons can enjoy drinks in a welcoming atmosphere. Unsurprisingly, this is exactly the kind of vibe Boteca gives off: unpretentious, friendly and a source of comfort for homesick Brazilians for the past ten years. Gatherings consist of samba, football and feijoada – the three quintessential Brazilian components to a great night.ย

5. Club Tipico Dominicanoย 

Nestled in the up and coming Alpattah district, ย Club Tipico Dominicano is considered one of the best Latin Clubs in Miami. It was opened in 1985 by Dominican native Luis De La Cruz and provides a crash course in how to live like a Dominican, a lesson you can wash down with one of their many cocktails – a Guava Rita perhaps?ย

7. El Palenque Night Club

A standard weekend here consists of salsa, bachata and merengue with some Mexican music thrown in. If you think you’ve got some moves, dance contests are held every night (the winner takes home $150), and every couple of months a Mexican music-fueled fiesta breaks out.
