Where to eat.drink.party repeat in Miami
Miami has long been the destination for fun in the sun and all night partying. Here you’ll rub shoulders with celebs as you’re sunning yourself on Miami’s picturesque sandy beaches or sipping on cocktails at a beachside bar.
But there’s more to Miami then sand and sun, here’s some of the Magic City’s hot spots and neighbourhoods you won’t want to miss…
Hanging out in iconic South Beach will give you a true taste of Miami life. One of the city’s top tourist spots, ‘SoBe’ is truly worth all the hype. Cruising along the beachfront here is truly a feast for the senses with all the delightful stereotypes from rollerblading bronzed bikini clad girls to models and reality TV stars amongst the golden sands and trendy bars and clubs. South Beach is also where you’ll find Miami’s famous pastel coloured Art Deco architecture, which gives a quirky edge to the glitz and glamour of South Beach. Wander along Ocean Drive and stop in at the Art Deco District Welcome Centre where you can get your hands on a self-guided audio tour. After all that sightseeing, head to The Abbey, one of the oldest bars in the city, for some unique brews, before hitting up much-loved dive bar and SoBe institution, Mac’s Club Deuce.

If you’re in need of a swift antidote to SoBe’s excesses, head to the art district of Wynwood to immerse yourself in the Miami hipster scene. Located just north of Downtown Miami, Wynwood is a heavily Puerto Rican influenced suburb, bursting with over 70 galleries, museums and art studios, as well as an abundance of street art. Every second Saturday of each month, Artwalk takes place, with the galleries and private art studios opening their doors to the public. Wynwood is also well-known for its super trendy cafe and bar scene. Visit the Wood Tavern for craft brews and cocktails, great garden session space and an oh-so-popular Taco stand.

For a true taste of multi-cultural Miami, Little Havana is a wonderful experience. One of Miami’s oldest neighbourhoods, Little Havana is a little slice of Cuba, with Cuban influences of music, cooking, coffee and art all around. Head to Calle Ocho, the main drag, where you’ll find the ‘Walkway of the Stars’ featuring famous latino names. To mingle with the locals stop in for a delicious desert at Versailles Restaurant and Bakery on SW 8th Street and listen to the local Cuban-American community debating political and cultural affairs over a strong Cuban coffee.
