    Fan Elliott Simhon, who got to party with the team inside the club, said the celebration libations were flowing.

    "Seeing LeBron walk in here just bathing in champagne, the vodka, and just saying that nothing else matters, he's a regular guy from Akron, Ohio, just a regular kid and everyone's trying to put him down because after he made the decision to come to Miami but he's proven everyone wrong," Simhon said.

    Local rapper PrimaDonna was another lucky fan who was inside the club and described the festive mood.

    "It was the bomb," she said. "You hear LeBron, you would have thought Lil Wayne was in the building, he said 'Look me in the face, I ain't got no worries.' I said woooo, we won a championship!"

    "The coach surprised me, he was pumping bottles. It was just crazy," she added.

    The club officially closed sometime around 6 a.m. At 6:17 a.m., Wade tweeted: "We ain't go no worries...2013 champs!!!!!"
