The Clevelander is bringing the adult playground experience back to the beach. A 70-year tradition of fun is now enhanced more than ever thanks to a complete renovation of its boutique hotel featuring 60 cozy rooms and Rock Star Suites, the ground floor poolside bars and new Clevelander Café, the Game On Sports Bar, and the new additions including the C-Level Rooftop Terrace and SPF4 Sundeck, and the property's first indoor nightlife venue – 1020 Music Boxx.

As other reviewers have said, you can't help but notice this place as you walk down Ocean Drive. We got lured in and were enjoying our slightly overpriced dinner when a fight broke out at the table in front of us - literally less than 2 feet away. Surprisingly, the staff were more concerned with watching the fight than making... More

Two words. GO HERE! The atmosphere is electric, the staff is great and the music will have you dancing in no time. I would recommend anyone visiting Miami to come here during the day or night! I will be back!

If you are walking down Ocean Drive in South Beach you can't help but to notice this place. It's a loud beach club right on the strip. Worth a stop and a fun time, but like others have said, it's very expensive.

Right on Ocean blvd. Loud dancing and music. Has a great happy hour 1/2 price drinks and appetizers. Had a full lobster dinner ...not fancy..but it was lobster, sweet and tastey! Looks like most people got burgers, pizza and huge combo plates...it all looked wonderful. Not a place to go if you want to relax and converse! It was perfect... More

I wish I could have videotaped out visit because the people watching was simply priceless. The drinks are RIDICULOUSLY priced way too high but it is a very fun party scene with great music and lots of fun. Don't go upstairs~it is lame and we stayed for about 2 minutes.

Just took a trip to South Beach and had the best time when we stopped in at the Clevelander. The bartenders were friendly, the music was fun and loud. They had a festive crowd and a live DJ. It was a great time.

DJs start early in the morning and they are terrible. I have partied all over the world from Rio to Greece to Vegas and these might have been the worst set lists i have ever heard. I don't know whether the DJs were free to mix it up or if they had a list to play, but it was terrible.... More
