Stay at a Hotel that Offers VIP Passes
Some hotels, including most of the Top 7 Cheap South Beach Hotels, offer their guests VIP access to the hottest clubs. They can put you on the club guest list for much faster entry. Even if your hotel does not offer VIP passes, you should still talk to the concierge. They are very knowledgeable about this subject and may have some insider information to share.
Arriving early - at about 11 pm - means there will be less people in line. Of course there will be less people inside too, but just wait a little while and the crowds will soon join you.
Dress to Impress
Doormen are looking for people who are attractive, and who look like they are going to spend money inside. Men should look classy and cool, perhaps in designer jeans and a somewhat dressy shirt. No shorts, ill-fitting clothing, or casual shoes. For ladies, tight and sexy clothing is your ticket, but try to keep it on the chic and sophisticated side.
Respect the Doormen
Confidence is important - you should look like you know you belong here â€“ but donâ€™t appear boastful or give attitude to the doorman. Also, do not try to tip the doormen. They will consider it an insult, and there are usually off-duty cops nearby for added security.
Arrive in a Mixed Group
Mixed groups have a better chance of getting in, so try to arrive in a group with equal numbers of men and women, or more women than men. Even if you are not traveling with such a group, try to make friends with other people standing in line and enter together. A large group of guys is a turn-off, so split off into smaller groups before presenting yourself to the doormen. A large group of attractive women should not have much trouble, but they may let a few guys join their group if you offer to buy them a drink once inside.
