Below we have the top picks for this Sunday, experience the best of Miami nightlife with our dusk-till-dawn guide to the best clubs, bars, dance, and more.
Havana D’ Primera en Miami @ North Beach Bandshell (Miami Beach) – Habana En Miami & Asho Productions in association with SeaRock Entertainment present the Miami Return of acclaimed Cuban Timba & Salsa rockstar & Latin Grammy Nominee: Alexander Abreu & Havana D’Primera! Music and Opening Set by DJ MELAO / Dance Performance by Casino D’Primera. Doors 6PM, show starts 7PM.
Havana D’Primera is the Cuban Timba band directed and founded by Alexander Abreu in 2008, widely recognized as one of the greatest trumpet players of his generation – enriching most of the musical productions on the island.
The band was formed by a collective of the best musicians and Cuban-All-Stars artists in the current Cuban scene, including not only revolutionary dominating musicians in the ’90s but also the most talented musicians of the upcoming years. Alexander has established himself as a dominating vocalist and renowned songwriter.
His highly sophisticated melodic voice has made him remain as an outstanding vocalist with the added melodic sophistication of a skilled instrumentalist. He is considered one of the most versatile Cuban musicians, who has made his music a fascinating rhythmic and musical fusion of Salsa, Jazz, Funk, and Afro-Cuban.
Before he became the founder and musical director of Havana D’ Primera, Alexander Abreu Manresa worked his way up through the timba ranks. He started playing trumpet when he was 10 years old and studied music at a small conservatory in his native Cienfuegos. He moved to Havana to study at the Escuela Nacional de Arte (ENA).
After graduating in 1994, he spent the next six years playing trumpet with Paulo FG y Su Elite and recording with Klimax, Isaac Delgado, Pachito Alonso, Mayito Rivera, Manolín, Los Van Van, Irakere and too many others to name here. In 2000, he was named Best Trumpet Player of Timba music by the influential Timba.com website. The following year his participation in the compilation La rumba soy yo won him a Latin Grammy award.

LOUNGES, BARS & PUBS:
Bodega South Beach (South Beach)
When you first show up at Bodega, you could easily mistake it for a popular neighborhood taqueria. Look around for a guy with an earpiece at the back of the room and tell him your friend sent you, and you might just get directed to a back door that looks like an entrance to a Porta Potti. Pass through here and you’ll enter a graffiti-filled men’s washroom. It’s only after passing through yet another door that you will enter one of South Beach’s hot hidden nightclubs. The mixologists have an extensive menu that relies heavily on “illegal” mezcal, and the DJ keeps the room pumping all through the night. It caters to a friendly, over 21’s crowd and makes for a good introduction to the South Beach scene minus the cover charge and lineups that you’ll find at clubs closer to the beach.
Bodega South Beach – Monday – Sunday from 12PM – 4AM.

In a city that changes like an indecisive chameleon, an island always for sale to the highest bidder, Mac’s joint has remained a pristine, neon-lit paradise untouched by outside forces.

This off-the-beaten-path bar has the beer-hall vibe of a street corner hook-up joint with a touch of South Beach strut.
