Club Space, today the name is synonymous with dance music in the United States. The go-to venue for any nightlife enthusiast in the nation, the club is proudly marching on into it’s second decade of operation. Inhabiting a “fixer-upper” of a sprawling one-story warehouse just off of Biscayne Boulevard, the original Club Space was a serious gamble. With a concentrated marketing push emphasizing an egalitarian, no-nonsense approach towards the customers, as well as the then-unheard of 24-hour operating permit, Club Space promised an exciting, over-the-top club experience for the discerning dance music enthusiast. With state-of-the-art lighting, sound, and visual systems, the venue rapidly set “the” standard for clubs not only in the Miami area, but throughout the country. With original residents such as legendary DJ/Producer Oscar G, trance maven Edgar V, house stalwart Roland, and local favorite Ivano Bellini, the gauntlet had been thrown down. Coupled with a sudden influx of guest DJs such as Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, John Digweed, Sasha, Deep Dish, Danny Tenaglia (who played a record 20-hour set during the 2000 WMC), and a then-unknown Dutch fellow named TiÃ«sto, the nightlife landscape of the area, and the nation as a whole had been shaken up.
