Cover at South Beach varies from $2 to $3 during the week to $6 most Fridays and Saturdays, and $3 on Sundays. If you go on your birthday, you can get in with no cover (must have proof of your birth date). There are no exceptions to this rule; you must go on your birthday, unless it's on a Monday or Tuesday when the club is closed. In this situation, you can use the birthday special on the preceding Saturday. Cover prices may be higher (up to $20) for special events. Also, on Fridays and Saturdays, cover is free from 10:30 to 11:00 PM. If you are trying to get in without paying cover, show up right at 10:30, as the line builds quickly. Finally, if you like Latin music, Wednesday nights are Cafe con Leche nights at South Beach, with a mix of salsa, meringue, and other Latin beats. The club is usually packed with Hispanic guys on Wednesdays.
