More than a Halloween party, the Reel Horror Ball IV’s Night of the Living Dead bills itself as a cinematic production replete with movie-worthy decor, roving zombies, and a dance-crew performance. LMNT’s gallery space hosts the multiple-room event, where costumed partygoers take to a dance floor electrified by 15 DJs, including DJ Irie and Lazerdisk Party Sex. Between songs, guests can refuel at the full bar, pick up snacks from food vendors, or suck the souls of their enemies to keep up their energy throughout the night. Electric Beach MP: As a massive winter gathering of the world's brightest EDM luminaries, the Winter Music Conference warms up its already-balmy South Beach surroundings with slick synths and thumping beats issuing forth from its global cadre of DJs and performers. Not content with simply holding court in light-strewn clubs, the dance masters also hit the sand and surf during Electric Beach, an all-day rave-up held at Nikki Beach, a surfside night spot renowned for its posh perch along the whispering Atlantic. There, revelers move seamlessly from sand to dance floor as more than 20 acts, including Harry Choo Choo Romero, Starkillers, and Miss Nine, keep beats dropping and records spinning from noon until 5 a.m.
Taking shots at the bar is already a performance: the dramatic tossing back of the head, the struggle not to make a puckered, that-was-rough face. Shots MIAMI’s bartenders embrace that theatricality by creating a show around each of their handcrafted shots, outfitting drinkers with silly props like oversized sombreros and sunglasses. The goofy costumes complement more than 150 cheekily named libations, such as Fruit Punch to the Face, a watermelon-flavored vodka shot. SHOTS Miami’s crew mobilizes its liquor, props, and glassware for private and corporate events, where they happily adapt their concept and drinks around each soiree’s specific theme.
Like its imaginative cocktails, Ricochet Bar & Lounge's décor mixes a wide variety of distinct elements to create an alluring final product. Tufted walls, purple marble accents, and reclaimed wood swirls around a 90-foot triangular bar that serves as the lounge's centerpiece. Rotating installations of video art flash across TV screens, and curated drink coasters designed by local artists offer a hip place to rest glasses or elbows during arm wrestling contests. Ricochet's food menu adds to the artistic ambiance, mollifying pangs of hunger with mini paninis, guava and lime lollipop ribs, and other innovative small plates.

Since 1989, The Miami Symphony Orchestra has mimicked Miami’s cultural diversity with concerts and events that act as a melting pot of musical influences.
