Best of Miami 2009 Readers' Poll: Best Dance Club, Best DJ, Best Local Band and More

Quick reminder that the Best of Miami Readers' Poll will be closing soon! If you haven't had a chance yet, vote now. Our choices for this year's winners are already in the books, so to speak, but there is still time for you, the reader, to tell us what you think are some of the best bars, DJs, clubs and bands in Miami.

Our choice of Love Hate Lounge as Best Dance Club was probably one the more highly contested winners, with one commenter saying, "So did they give you a free shot to make this pick?" Ouch. But it's reasons like that why the Readers' Poll exists.
