Miami’s newest hotspot, M2 Nightclub, opens its doors with world-class talent, including David Guetta with MORTEN for grand opening night.
M2 Miami is Miami’s latest nightclub to open its doors – and it’s just in time for the start of Miami Music Week 2023. Taking over the legendary venue located at 1235 Washington Ave. in Miami Beach, the spot has entertainment embedded in its DNA. Formerly Prince’s Glam Slam, Club 1235, Paragon & Mansion, just to name a few, M2 is a modernized rendition of a classic, historic theater turned nightclub. Bringing a main stage festival experience to South Beach, the historic theater is now filled with LEDs and top-quality sound equipment.
Grand opening week for M2 is slated to host some of the world’s top DJs across five nights. Some of the top-tier talent to grace the decks of the newly renovated M2 space include 30+ acts, including Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Charlotte de Witte, Sasha & Digweed, and last night’s grand opening party with MORTEN, which included a special appearance from his Future Rave partner, David Guetta. Partnering with Ultra Music Festival and its acclaimed RESISTANCE, check out the full by-day lineups for M2, below.
