Globally, Miami is synonymous with music and escapism. It’s the beach city in which to let your hair down, party at the best clubs, and sip cocktails by the pool. But for those who want to experience a little more beyond the famous nightlife, here’s our guide to the best alternative hotspots the Magic City has to offer.
Stay at the St Regis, Bal Harbour
Located in the perfect position – in its own exclusive enclave, just minutes from lively South Beach and directly opposite the renowned Bal Harbour Shops – is Miami’s version of the famed St Regis outposts. An added bonus is its proximity to the bustling Collins Avenue area, while being just far enough away for guests to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. With a private beach, two ocean-side pools, a 14,000-square-foot spa, four restaurants and a free cocktail of the day for all guests during happy hour, you may find it difficult to leave. Be sure to sample a Greek sharing feast at Atlantikos and the newly launched Rosé Sundays in the Ocean View ballroom, a brunch offering bottomless rosé wines, champagne and bloody Marys alongside a full menu of breakfast favourites.
