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.

Great atmosphere right on Ocean Drive. People watching is a must, especially on weekends. Drinks are good, but pricey. Food is acceptable and even good for a beach place. Music is fantastic.

The Groove Cruise used the Clevelander Hotel as their official host hotel this year and the pre-party for the cruise was held at their pool / bar area on-site. The pool is loosely based as no one is really going to go into it but it's more for decoration. Most of the pool has been covered by the dance floor.... More

The music is loud and there are often gogo dancers scantily clad on small platforms dancing. There is an outdoor pool in between several of the bars.... More

It's a fun place with bikini clad bar tenders and huge TV's. It's a magnate for pretty people coming off the beach. Fun spot.

We went to the Clevelander for a quick drink and apps after laying out on South Beach. The vibe is fun and upbeat, its spacious, there are tv's to watch sports and a DJ keeping the party live. The drink prices are reasonable - get a pitcher if you're there with a bunch of friends. The food looks great -... More
