The REVOLT Music Conference (RMC) is sure to keep you busy during its multi-day run at the Fontainebleau Hotel in South Beach from October 15-18. But if and when you find some down time to venture out into the city, we want to make sure you spend that time wisely.

Earlier this week, we presented you with a list of the top 10 places to eat in or around Miami Beach. Today (October 7), we give you 10 places to visit while you’re there, including the best places to shop, top places to party and even where to get some impromptu ink for an all-around good time.

Get your itineraries ready!

Wet Willies

This venerable beachfront bar serves some of the most notorious frozen drinks on the strip, including marquee items like Call a Cab and the Superman. Chill at the upstairs deck or at the bar for some guaranteed fun.

King of Diamonds

This gentlemen’s club not only has some of the most voluptuous and talented strippers in the M-I-A working their poles, but it’s also the preferred strip joint of many a famous face. Come here to rub elbows with a few rappers, to make it rain on the dancers, or a little bit of both.

Shoe Gallery

Founded in 1979 by Cuban immigrant Abram Wassertein, Shoe Gallery got a facelift in the year 2000 when his grandson, Danny Wassertein, took over the reigns and made SG a one-stop shop for the latest and dopest urban gear and kicks.

Love Hate Social Club, Home of the Famous Miami Ink

Owned by Ami James, Love Hate Tattoo Studio is home of the famous Miami Ink artists from the TLC show by the same name. Though a little on the pricey side, the ink these artists create is said to be worth every dime.

Villa Vizcaya/Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Located on Biscayne Bay on Miami’s south side, Villa Vizcaya is an Italianite mansion that once belonged to industrialist James Deering (of Tractor fame). The 34-room mansion was built in the 1910s and is surrounded by acres of gardens and an ornamental breakwater that sits right in the bay.

LIV Nightclub

Located right inside the Fontainebleau Hotel, LIV is a favorite of tourists, celebrities and locals alike. World famous DJs like Stevie J, among others, are mainstays so a good time is guaranteed.

Nikki Beach

Nikki Beach hosts a sexy, upscale day-to-evening party that allows partygoers the opportunity to eat, drink, sunbathe and dance all at once until the wee hours. We suggest you camp out on an outdoor bed or cabana during the all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch.

Versace House

The five-star Miami mansion once owned by fashion designer Gianni Versace recently reopened as a boutique hotel. The 23,000-square-foot property features a 54-foot mosaic-tiled swimming pool lined in 24-carat gold and houses 10 bedrooms that are not only outfitted in Egyptian cotton linens, but also have their own private balconies and Italian marble bathrooms. If you can afford the luxury, we say splurge.

Little Havana

Take a day trip to Little Havana for a slice of Cuban culture. A landmark of the vibrant Cuban neighborhood is Calle Ocho, the main strip of Little Havana where Cuban restaurants and cigar shops line the street leading up the Avenue of the Stars, where Latin American artists like Gloria Estefan and Celia Cruz are honored.


Sister store to Atrium NYC, Atrium’s Miami location is a hotspot for all designer clothes and shoes at designer prices. The unisex hub carries items by top fashion houses and, as a result, is frequented by celebrities that can easily dish out the cash for such luxury pieces. So if you can’t afford the shopping, go for the people watching.
