Justin Bieber was seen checking in Tuesday The Villa Casa Casuarina (formerly the Versace Mansion) before heading to WALL where he gave a surprise performance. Bieber left that club with fifty--yep, 50 people-- and brought them back with him, partying until 8 a.m. Wednesday. The Biebs lounged it off all day at the pool before heading to sceney steakhouse Prime 112 for lunch around 3:30 p.m. A waiter said Bieber "seemed to be intoxicated, most likely from the night before." Ya think? Following lunch he went back to Casa Casuarina to nap before hitting LIV Nightclub, where he showed up just after midnight and spent the majority of the evening singing along to his songs and dancing to them from the DJ booth.

Terius Gray, also known as Juvenile, was living up to his rapper name when he was arrested at 4 a.m. today at LIV for disorderly conduct. According to the police report, a large fight broke out inside and a "large crowd (approximately 100) had gathered in front of the valet ramp. The crowd was yelling and screaming and some were pushing each other . . . Mr. Gray was visualized heading toward to Collins Ave. to enter his vehicle to exit the property," but was arrested on scene and taken to MB Police for further processing. The arrest brings up an interesting point made by one of our Twitter followers, Mark Alhadeff: "Has his name made it impossible to try him as an adult? If so tha's a brilliant move."

Snatch makes a comeback on South Beach! Nightlife vet Mark Lehmkuhl resurrecting randy rock 'n' roll bar
As much as nostalgic nightlifers would love to see the return of Liquid, some will also be elated to hear that the somewhat shortlived Snatch Rock 'n' Roll Bar housed in the same space from 2006ish to 2008ish will be returning, only this time it's taking over the dingy, divey and for some of us, ahem, beloved space formerly known as Studio, the karaoke bar in the belly of the Shelborne. As for what you can expect in the new and improved, er, Snatch: "signature debauchery and true rock 'n' roll," says Vanessa Menkes, senior VP of communications for The Opium Group, yep, that one of Mansion, SET, Cameo and Mokai DNA. The same company for whom Snatch creator Mark Lehmkul works. And while the original Snatch had a mechanical bull, it became more famous for being the place where mechanical, animatronic insta-couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes made their Miami debut as a couple. Such fun was had with those headlines! Expect the new and improved Snatch to open sometime in the Fall. We can't hardly wait for the puns and games.
