FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
WHY IS ‘THE MIAMI CRAWL’ DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHERS?
A great question! The fact is ‘The Miami Crawl’ is actually a different experience than all the others that operate in Miami. We feel it is because we originate from outside of Miami and brought a Global Crawl tradition to SoBe. The difference is that all the others offer is merely the Miami-typical ‘hosted walk-in’ service to the venues. Although this is a fine service, we take great pride in the fact that WE throw a party, and WE PARTY WITH YOU at some of the best venues in the world! We staff sometimes as many as 10 guides, compared to the others 1 or 2, whose sole purpose is to break the ice with the other crawlers, show you what the amazing venues have to offer, and get the party started. At ‘The Miami Crawl’ we start the party!
WHAT IS A ‘HOSTED WALK – IN’ ?
A ‘hosted walk – in’ is a popular service in Miami that can cost a great deal of money. It is when a host or promoter for a venue meets you outside, and for a hefty price on top of the cover charge, walks you in. This, in essence, is what the other Crawl style companies provide in Miami. A single guide who hustles you in and waits to do it again at the next spot. It can be a great experience, but not what we offer. Don’t be fooled, many of these other companies are Miami style promoters dressing up as a tour. These are unlike us in the sense that we were trained in Australia and Europe and have brought a culture that is less about the venues and more about YOU, and getting YOUR party on! Don’t believe us? Compare the reviews!
WE SAW A CRAWL ONLINE, IS THAT THE CRAWL WE WILL BE GOING ON?
The simple answer is… ‘Maybe’. We do not own or control any of the bars, clubs, or nightclubs that we go to… we simply work with their management teams to put a program together that we feel will be one amazing night out. The decision to visit certain venues depends on many factors, some of which we do not control. Therefore the tour does change. Most of the time the venues inform us of necessary schedule changes months/weeks in advance. However, sometimes it can be the day before…and yes, sometimes when we arrive! But we are very well connected and our promise is to you, that regardless of last minute changes, the schedule for the night will be the absolute best possible! An unforgettable night in the entertainment capitol of the world!

HOW OLD MUST I BE?
According to Florida, you must be 21 years of age or older.
WHAT’S THE AVERAGE AGE?
The average age of people on the crawls is about 30. That being said we have had daughter, mother, grandmother combos dominating DB’s flip-cup tournaments!
I’M OLDER THAN 50, WOULD I HAVE A GOOD TIME?
YES! We’re sure you would love it! As long as you’re ready to meet people, enjoy the establishments we attend and spread good energy.
WILL I BE THE ONLY PERSON OVER 50 THERE?
IS THERE A BUS?
99.9% Nope, it’s all walking distance. On the odd occasion, busses or limo’s will be arranged which is included in the all-access ticket price. The busses are hired from one of a few great transportation providers in Miami, and are not directly affiliated with us. If you are interested in finding out who these are, just drop us a line.
SHOULD I WEAR MY HEELS?
The longest walk we have ever had is a ten minute slow walk. Most clubs are closer together though. The crawl lasts at least 5 hours. You be the judge.
WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?
No shorts. No Caps. No Sandals. No tank tops.
Gentlemen: No dirty running shoes; some clubs have issues with white running shoes or shell toes, a nice pair of chucks is usually okay – but not always. We recommend a collar. Jeans are ok as long as they have no rips. When in doubt, dress it up.
Ladies: Look nice No flip-flops. Heels are preferable.
Dress code is usually enforced at the last two or three venues of the night. The early venues can be a little bit more relaxed with our group. If you are borderline, they will look at you as a whole (and your behavior) to make a decision. Better safe than sorry.
WHAT TIME DO YOU START?
The Crawl starts at different times each day. The odd time we will change the start time, but very rarely. Check on the Where-We-Go section of our page for changes to start times.
DO I HAVE TO START RIGHT AT THE START TIME?
No. Ultimately you are just out and about in Miami on your own accord. Your ticket is for the access to the schedule of venues we have organized, and therefore time-sensitive. Keep this in mind, if you miss parts of the crawl, you’re missing out on what you paid for. For example food is usually provided by the first venue within the first 30 minutes of the start of the crawl. If you miss that, then you are out of luck. We recommend that you arrive at the start time specified for that day to get the full experience. If you don’t arrive with our group to each venue, you run the danger of having to wait in line and paying a cover charge.
HOW LONG ARE YOU AT THE FIRST VENUE?
We are usually there for about 80 minutes. Don’t worry about calling us at 7:04pm to tell us you are ten minutes behind.
CAN WE JOIN MUCH LATER?
Of course you can, your ticket is access for the schedule of venues for the night. Though a lot of the fun, fun, fun stuff happens at the starting venues for the night, we are happy to work something out for you if you are late. If you want to join us at a later venue but not sure where to go, that is not a problem, just call us and let us know. 702.891.5001.
I’M A VEGETARIAN / VEGAN / KOSHER / HATE YOUR FOOD, CAN I STILL EAT?
We’re pretty good about working things out for you. Just ask us and we’ll see what we can do. Keep in mind, your ticket is access to the venues, and we don’t make the food – they provide the treats, but if it’s not ok for you, and the venue can make it, we’re happy to arrange it for you.
HOW MUCH FOOD IS IT?
Typically it’s chicken nachos or french fries. We also sometimes get pizza and potato skins. It is appetizers though, not a 4 course meal. Make sure you grab something before you start
CAN WE GO BACK TO THE CLUBS WE ALREADY ATTENDED?
Yes. 95% of the time. Sometimes (if a venue has a concert or special event) it becomes harder to return and places are always subject to capacity. But your wristbands are good so you can re-enter a club. Make sure you GET A STAMP to return to the club. You won’t have to wait in line, or pay cover.
CAN WE LEAVE THE CRAWL, MEET YOU AT THE LAST VENUE AND SKIP THE LINE?
Yes and No. You can leave the Crawl at your leisure. There is no roll call, you are out in Miami on your own accord. The Crawl is a schedule of great venues and access with your ticket is subject to entry with the group. Simply put, we have to skip the line together. This means to receive the benefits you must, at the very least, be with us at the scheduled entry. If you arrive 30 minutes after everyone from the crawl has already gotten in, you will have to wait in line… You may even have to pay cover. If you’re 5 minutes late, that’s not a big deal, usually, but it’s up to the door staff at the venue, not us. So we recommend stay with the group! Remember – your ticket is a scheduled access pass to the venues
WHERE DO WE START?
Read your ticket please. It’s written on your ticket. If you made a phone or email booking and are on the will-call list call 702.891.5001 to find out.
CAN I RESERVE TICKETS?
To reserve tickets, you must put a deposit of at least one ticket down. If you purchase your tickets online and send us an email explaining that you would like us to set aside another 5 tickets, we’re happy to do that, provided you confirm you still need them prior to the crawl.
IS THERE A PLACE IN MIAMI WE CAN PICK UP THE TICKETS?
Yes, though, once again, please make sure you have reserved tickets prior to arriving in Miami (see above). Please call us and we will direct you.
