Miami nightlife impresario Chris Paciello to open Rockwell nightclub in Miami Beach

Miami Beach nightlife icon Chris Paciello announced that he will be opening Rockwell, a new nightclub, in late fall 2015. Paciello has partnered with Mio Danilovic, former Vice President of Nightlife for the sbe hospitality group to create a nightclub that plans to combine “LA cool, New York music and Miami energy” to 743 Washington Ave. on Miami Beach.

Rockwell will open in the space that formerly held exclusive hotspots such as Les Bains and Chaos. The boutique club designed by François Frossard will offer an intimate setting for up to 450 partygoers.

“I’m excited to be opening a nightclub in a space that holds so many memories for me.” Paciello said in a release. “I plan to recreate the energy and atmosphere that lived in the space, while making a little magic of our own on a street that helped put Miami and myself on the map.”

Paciello and Danilovic said they “plan to bring the art of hospitality back to nightlife” as they recognize the shift in nightlife where the experience is more important that the DJ. Open format music and live performances will take center stage at Rockwell.

“Following a successful career in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas, I am truly thrilled to be welcomed into such a close-knit nightclub community in the competitive market that is South Beach,” Danilovic said in a statement. “With our synergy and aligned vision for Rockwell, Chris and I are looking forward to opening ourdoors to a great party.”
