Space is an OG Miami club that opened in 2000. It hasn’t always had the most favorable reputation, but new ownership, some sprucing up, and great music bookings have made it cool again. Unlike most clubs, it isn’t too claustrophobic, and thanks to all the plants and a semi-open roof, the air feels fresh even if the person next to you is smoking. These days it’s both a club for people who actually care who’s behind the DJ booth and people who want to dance until the sun hits them in the face. Just know that headlining DJs often don’t come on until 3am at the earliest, so go ahead and have that espresso after dinner and grab some breakfast on the way home.
