Located in the heart of South Beach on Miami’s colorful Washington Avenue, anytime the venue is open for business it seems to light up the entire street. With hundreds of people anxiously waiting outside, it’s no wonder why everyone seems to flock to what used to be the French Casino in 1936. Mansion is by far one of the hottest nightclubs in the nation, and it definitely holds its own in a hotbed of partying like Miami. Named as ‘Miami’s hottest club’ by People Magazine, Mansion’s is constantly hosting A-list celebrities from both the music and acting world. Whether it’s another big bash by Diddy, or a table reserved for Gerard Butler, there’s no telling who’s going to walk past that velvet rope at any time of the night. The stage has already been graced by performances from some of the best, including Britney Spears, Velvet Revolver, and the one and only Prince. The vibe inside the club is like none other, but this is primarily because of the work by world-renowned design firm, Francois Frossard Design. From the lobby with its original 1936 chandelier, mirrored glass panels and LED lit archways, to the main floor’s famed dance floor towering ceiling, leather and suede seating and ornate fireplaces, there is nothing like Mansion. Many consider it South Beach’s pulse when it comes to nightlife, but we here at Clubplanet think of it as a true gem that many other venues should aspire to be.
