In total, nine Miami nightclubs made the 2012 Nightclub & Bar Top 100 nightclubs in America list released by industry publication Nightclub & Bar.

LIV Miami Nightclub at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach has an extra reason to party down this week. LIV ranks among the top five highest-grossing clubs in America. 5th-place LIV raked in as much as $45 million last year.

Mango’s Tropical Cafe ranked No. 14 and Clevelander at No. 22 followed by Mansion Miami at No. 26.

SET Nightclub came in at No. 32 and Wall at W Miami Beach came in at No. 54 and Space nightclub ranked No. 65 followed by Cameo at No. 68 and Dream Nightclub at No.92

The Top 100 ceiling was raised yet again with No. 1-ranked Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub in Las Vegas reporting 2011 revenue in excess of $70 million, a record-breaking figure for the club in its first full year of operation.

Altogether, the Top 100 venues generated $1.4 billion, up 9.2% from the 2011 list total. Overall, the top clubs continue to generate growth well in excess of the overall bar and nightclub segment, which grew 1% in 2011.

High-grossing nightclubs and bars around the country experienced another banner year, and the 2012 Nightclub & Bar Top 100 roster reflects the ongoing success of numerous established clubs and the outstanding performance of several newcomers.
