Club Maze

  • Events
Club Maze, among the largest nightclubs in South Beach, will shutter its doors after next month's Winter Music Conference. The 22,000-square-foot club at the corner of 18th Street and West Avenue, once home to the wildly popular Salvation nightclub, opened 1 years ago. Office Depot has leased the space but has not yet set an opening date, according to company spokesman Brian Levine.The club's website,notes that all Maze equipment will be on sale after April 1. The Winter Music Conference, an electronic music conference that draws upward of 10,000 music industry executives and fans, will take place March 6-10. Co-owner Stacy Gallowhur cited several factors for the club's demise. For starters, Gallowhur said, he underestimated the amount of work that went into running the nightclub.It was also hard to crack the monopoly other nightclub promoters had on the Beach, said Gallowhur, and as such it became difficult to generate a continuous buzz for the club. ''It was just an impossible situation,'' he said. ``We put in a great sound system, had no cover and had an open bar until 2 a.m, that did not sit well with other nightclubs.''Even worse, said Gallowhur, was navigating the maze of bureaucracy at City Hall that comes with running a club in Miami Beach.
