South Beach is an extremely expensive place for nightlife. The ultra rich party there so get ready for long lines, high cover, and pricey cocktails, with only a few exceptions. Hell, I hope you have hundreds to throw down on a bottle when you go because you will be expected to spend lots of money. Now outside of South Beach, the rest of Miami (like any other place) has pockets of high end all the way down to your neighborhood dive bar. I am not saying you have to be made of money to party in Miami, however, if you wanna be in the walkable, quintessential Miami you speak of, you better be prepared financially. There is no better place in my opinion than DT Orlando for most walkable, and most diversity in nightlife options in the state.

Is it possible to live dowtown without a car? I mean if you worked downtown, it it walkable enough and is there everything you need there to be able to get by without a car? How is the public transport?

I agree...the Miami lifestyle is extremely expensive, and I can't imagine dating the women there would be easy on the wallet either. While not Miami, Orlando has very attractive people that live and go downtown. I prefer DT Orlando myself, and it is also way more walkable than South Beach which really isn't as walkable as people think outside of the main shopping area. All the clubs are spread out, but if you cab it's not a big deal. If you like local rock music, Orlando is better than Miami. Most of the national talent will go to Tampa, but Orlando gets some of those.

You can live downtown and have access to many things like a very good grocery store, restaurants, bars, library, arena, etc. However public transportation to get to a job outside of downtown would be a pain. The bus system here is not very good. I would not live here without a car. Maybe if SunRail gets built it will be more viable to go that route in Orlando.
