Club Prana. This is hands down the best place to go. Walk in on the red carpet and pick which kind of vibes you want to have. The multi-level venue offers different music on each of its floors, so it appeals to pretty much everyone. You want hip-hop? They’ve got it. More into reggae? No problem. If beautiful views and people, and electric lights and sounds, are your thing, this is where you want to be.
Jackson's Bistro Bar & Sushi. Yes, this is a bistro/sushi bar during the day. But it’s also a poppin’ nightclub when the sun goes down - specifically on Saturdays. There are three different rooms to choose from: the Top 40 toom (mostly hip-hop), the Latin/International room and the House/Techno terrace. The waterfront view, cabanas, go-go dancers and live performers are great bonuses too.
The Kennedy. If Latin music is what gets you movin’ you’ll definitely want to check out Spanglish Saturdays, where a mix of Latin classics, Latin-American Remixes and Latin house & club music rotates. In the hospitality business? Make sure you go on a Monday where you’ll get in free all night. The music on Mondays is so good its broadcasted live on 94.1 with Buckwheat. Speaking of which, the Kennedy also frequently features hot hip-hop artists and recently had Migos and Future in the building.
AJA Channelside. If you’re looking for a very Miami-esque vibe, this beautiful venue delivers. Located at the base of the Towers of Channelside, you can imagine the ambiance to be experienced. The music is a mix of hip-hop and house/techno and the like, and AJA often features world-class DJ's and performers alongside an eclectic experience of sights and sounds for its guests.
Club Skye. The music isn’t very diverse, but if you’re looking for a hip-hop/reggaeton filled kind of night, this is where you’ll want to go. Some of the hottest DJ's and MC's make their way here, planned and unplanned, so you may be in for an exciting surprise. The 18+ club features two levels, a VIP balcony an exclusive private champagne room and an outside tiki bar.
The Honey Pot. Two words. HIGH. ENERGY. The Honey Pot is a vibrant, upscale LGBT nightclub in the heart of Ybor that features the best in top 40's dance music. Put a cherry on top of all the dancing you’ll be doing with DJ's, drag shows and Las Vegas-style burlesque dancing for a night you surely will not forget.
Dallas Bull. If country music is your thing, you’ll want to go ahead and head on out there. With a vast line dance floor, ten bars (yes, ten!), a mechanical bull and pool tables, each month the Dallas Bull sees over 20,000 people and often hosts renowned guests such as Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn and Luke Bryan. Yeehaw!
