How not to act in a nightclub: Miami’s biggest clubs ban Justin Bieber
If you’re looking for guidance on how to be popular in a nightclub, maybe don’t make Justin Bieber your mentor. The vainglorious rascal has attracted his fair share of bad press in recent months after trying to get into a punch-up with respected prog DJ Michael Woods in a South Korean club, and then being arrested for DUI and drag racing after a night at Miami superclub SET. And it seems his hell-raising has come back to haunt him: TMZ reports that three of the biggest nightclubs on Miami’s South Beach – LIV, Story and Adoré – have refused to allow Bieber back in.
According to TMZ’s “club sources”, last Friday night Bieber’s camp asked for reservations at all three clubs and promised to spend big on bottle service, but were comprehensively refused, with the sources citing Bieber’s bad behaviour and the fact that he’s under 21 (a restriction usually lifted for performers) as the reason for banning Bieber and entourage.
The three clubs recently hosted some epic parties for Miami Music Week – including events with Laidback Luke, David Guetta and Steve Aoki at Story, Tiesto and Kaskade at LIV, and Morgan Page at Adoré – but it seems they bear no love for Biebs.
