Although Miami is much more than partying, shopping and beaches, there is a reason why a good part of the world associates this region with these three concepts. Some of the best known nightclubs on the planet existed and still exist in Miami Dade, particularly in the resort area of Miami Beach. Among them, the iconic Mansion club located on Washington Avenue in South Beach.

Mansion was for eleven years one of the most famous nightclubs in the city, where the most renowned DJs on the planet performed. It was run by the Opium groupwho during the peak of their success controlled the clubs SET, Cameo, Opium Garden, Prive and Mokai, as well as Mansion. But the boom times came to an end, and Mansion closed in 2015.
On the 15,000-square-foot property there were two other nightclubs of short life, Icon and Copa Room. Recently, the property was acquired by the Resistance franchise, the successful group behind the Ultra music festival(which takes place in March in Miami).

Resistance invested several million dollars in renovating the property and making it ready to host the famous traveling techno music party that the group has taken to various places on the planet. According to a statement from the group Resistance, the party is a “fully immersive Ibiza-style experience” which they call M2.

M2 will have parties from time to time, so it will not function as a normal nightclub opening every week. The next opening date will be early May , after the week of music in Miami. From there, M2 will have parties every week during the fall.
As expected, these types of parties generate a lot of anticipation in the public and tickets are sold out in advance. Those who want to purchase them can do so from now on through the M2 Miami website.
