arkadia miamiArkadia, from the creators of LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau and LIV Sun Life, opened this past weekend in the underground space formerly known as Blade restaurant at the same iconic resort. Saturday night rap sensation Drake held his private birthday bash, sponsored by Grey Goose, at the space and among the guests were Alex Rodriguez of the N.Y. Yankees, LeBron James of the Miami Heat, model Elle Macpherson and actor Ed Norton. Sunday night the club’s founders, including David Grutman of MMG and hotelier Jeff Soffer, celebrated with a private party.


The space has now become an ultra-modern lounge with an intimate space for just over 300 people, 25 tables for your favorite bottles, two bars and couch seating that all have perfect views of a DJ booth that is double in size and covered in mirrors. The speakers in this place even have grills, so we expect a lot of ladies holding on and dancing to the beats.


Speaking of beats, the musical format for Arkadia will primarily be house music (think Deep Dish, Robbie Rivera and Cedric Gervais) highlighted by the new Thursday night Subliminal and Friends parties hosted by DJ Erick Morillo. For the opening night on Oct. 28 The Martinez Brothers will be spinning, along Mednas and Antranig.


Saturdays, with house music already dominating the lineup at sister space LIV, the music will be open format featuring DJ Ross One. On Sundays, expect some of those same house music masters who played at LIV on a Saturday night to head over to the Arkadia pool and start the show when the doors open at 6 p.m. Then the party will move inside for the rest of the night.


Pool? You read correctly, and we’re not talking about the pool table inside Arkadia. The space also encompasses the small swimming pool space that was outside Blade. Expect a new set of furniture here (think Mondrian-esque) and a 21-and-over crowd.


And why the name Arkadia? The space was actually the old arcade for the Fontainebleau resort back in the 70s and 80s and in tribute to that era the walls leading into the men’s and women’s bathrooms are plastered with copies of old magazine articles, photos and memorabilia.


Looks like house music in Miami has found a new spot to play.
