The downtown-based club surprises their public with the sudden news.
After a series of successful nights hosting several well-attended Miami Music Week events, Heart Nightclub announced they will be closing the club’s doors after losing a city’s legal strife and neighbors’ continuous noise complaints.
According to Michael Slyder the club’s financial director, “During this past year, the clubs in our 24-hour entertainment district have been constantly attacked by new condo developers, residents and the City of Miami,” Slyder wrote in the statement. “We have fought a good fight and spent a great deal of money on lawyers but now it’s time for us to throw in the towel. It is quite obvious that our neighbors don’t want to compromise to resolve the issue, that real estate agents and developers want clubs closed as they think by doing so property values will increase, and that the City is less interested in protecting nightlife and its businesses than in the past.”
Heart owners have not communicated yet if the club will move to another location or if its closure is definitive. Some outsiders commented the final date will be April 16th.
