Setai Grill
Be lulled into the sumptuousness of dark wooden panelling and pearl that cocoons the Setai and prepare for a feast. 
Amethyst Couture
A fashionista's find; Amethyst Couture has everything a gal needs for a night on the tiles.
Prime One Twelve
Excellent steak, a prime location and the type of clientele that the paparazzi loves.
Barton G
Barton G is one of the quintessentially OTT South Beach restaurants, lavish decor, beautiful people, over-inflated egos and great popcorn shrimp...
Blackbird Ordinary
The perfect opportunity for the hidden hedonist to let loose and release that mid-week bender.
Buck 15
The bar with the coolest graffiti art and flea market sofas in Miami.
The Cypress Room
A timely reminder that fine dining still has its place and starched table cloths and buttoned-up waiters aren't just the reserve of period dramas.
Delano Hotel
A new version of South Beach's original icon.
Ortanique
You'd never guess that co-owner and chef Cindy Hutson was self-taught; the menu at Ortanique is to-dine-for, fusing together cuisines from South America, North America, Asia and the Caribbean.
AG Adriano Goldschmied
Denim is king at AG Adriano Goldschmied, which houses premium jeans in a sleek, sexy setting.
Bass Art Museum
The Bass has a well-deserved reputation for being a top art museum.
Spire Bar
A hide-away roof-top bar, lit by The Hotel's Tiffany spire.
Alessandra Gold Concept Store
A concept store so cutting edge it should come with a safety warning.
Affliction
Get the Miami look at Affliction, where a graphic tee is sure to pack a punch.
The Electric Pickle
Ignore the pretentious air of their blurb but take their own words as a hedonists call to arms - an intimate, liquor fuelled love machine - need we say more? 
The Raleigh
A regular photo shoot location and a hang-out for locals. Stylish, and it knows it...
The Shore Club
Everybody wants a piece of the Shore Club. It is one of the pillars of Miami decadence...
Florida Yacht
You're nobody in Miami until you're whizzing along the ocean in a suitably powerful boat. After all, in this town size is everything.
The Vagabond
Three stages keeps a seemingly endless supply of global DJ's, cool bands and quirky acts the pick of the cool bunch. 
Twist
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
Art Center South Florida
Make time to stop by this small art centre, where some of Miami's most interesting young talent work; you might just find the perfect piece for that space above the fireplace.
The Regent Cocktail Bar
Step back in time and settle down in this charmingly old-school and suavely elegant cocktail bar for some serious alcohol-appreciation time...
Ola
Ola's cerviche's hit the spot.
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp. 
Khong River House
Sublimely authentic Thai food with a gin selection to match.

The largest collection of political propaganda from both world wars, and an extensive selection of items from the U.S. and Europe in the modern era; prepare to be impressed.
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
Skyline
Joining the Mile High Club at Skyline is much easier than in the confines of a cramped toilet 30,000-feet up; with its entire concept based around air travel, it's frivolous Miami fun at its finest (and most ridiculous).
Art Basel
Unless you've been living under a culturally-devoid rock, you'll undoubtedly have heard of Art Basel Miami Beach; it's here that artists and galleries exhibit their creative wares for the world to see.
