Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Setai Grill
Be lulled into the sumptuousness of dark wooden panelling and pearl that cocoons the Setai and prepare for a feast. 
Cavalier
A charming restaurant with adventurous Italian fare - just don't try to understand the waiters.
Joe’s Stone Crab
Joe's Stone Crabs are where it's at if you are a crab fanatic.
Sagamore
Not even Hercule Poirot could find a stray finger print here. The Sagamore is immaculate...
Doral Golf Resort
Argyle-clad golf fans can't get enough of The Doral, which boasts no less than five championship golf courses across 34,000 yards.
Colony Theater
A range of performance arts can be enjoyed at the Colony Theater, an Art Deco gem that stands proud on Lincoln Road.
Ferrari
There's only one thing cooler than owning a Ferrari - and that's owning a Ferrari and all the goodies that go with it. Stock up on said items here.
Uncle Sam’s Music
DJs stock up on new (and old) tunes at Uncle Sam's Music, where vinyl is God and the customers nothing but local subjects.
Delano Hotel
A new version of South Beach's original icon.
Lowe Museum
With 13,000 pieces on show, many from the ancient world, Lowe is a must-visit museum for the discerning art-lover.
The Forge
Scarface would have eaten here, Scarface wannabes eat here now. The wine cellar is enormous and the food - a mixture of meats and seafood - is verging on the outstanding. Book well in advance for your Wednesday night thriller.
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...
Ziff Jewish Museum
A museum and former synagogue that represents the history of the large Jewish community in Miami.
Miami Hurricanes
As Florida's favourite sports team, the Hurricanes can do no wrong - unless they lost (which they don't do often).
Art Deco
The awe-inspiring Art Deco that lines South Beach is one of Miami's defining features, so be sure to take it all in - camera in-hand.
Dolce Italian
Drag yourself off the beach and into this haven of Italian refinement for the finest Italian on the landmark Collins Avenue. 
Little Havana
Come to the Cuban capital of Miami to soak up some local culture, deliciously strong coffee and observe the cigar-puffing elderly men play a laid-back game of chess. As authentic as they come.
Caffe Abbracci
While its interiors could do with a style overhaul - the décor is more Miami Vice than Miami Nice - Caffe Abbracci has succeeded where others have failed through good service and a reliable menu of Italian favourites.
Whitelaw Hotel
The Whitelaw has the most electric 'we know we're here to party' feel of any hotel on SoBe...
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...
Wolfsonian-FIU
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.
Miami Dolphins
Go Dolphins! Take in a game at the Sun Life Stadium, complete with foam finger.
Jerry’s Famous Deli
Open 24 hours, Jerry's will always be there for you. With a mind-boggling 250 item menu, there is something for everyone, especially if you're craving piled-high pastrami.
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
The Victor Hotel
Jaques Garcia's jellyfish-themed boutique hotel draws in the celebs and their followers...
Club Deuce
The authentic Miami dive bar 'The Deuce' caters for every fetish.
Fly Boutique

The Stage
Some of the best live music in Florida served with a chilled Southern vibe. 
Casa Tua
Extortionately priced food but it is out of this world.
National
The National talks a big SoBe game with perhaps the best-looking pool in town...
Vizcaya Museum
Boasting antiques from the 16th to 19th centuries, this stately home is a stunner; if you're craving a bit of glamour away from South Beach, Vizcaya is the place to be.
Kill Your Idol
Kitschy-dive bar aesthetic is an refreshing South Beach antidote...
Passage to India
Passage to India sells bohemian trinkets to hippies with an eye for style.
Fisher Island Club
Take your time to zone out on your own little island...
Maximo Gomez Park
Watching chess is not a fun experience, unless the Cuban dudes are playing.
Astor Hotel
The classic Art Deco design oozes understated style and draws in an exclusive crowd...
Romeo’s Café
Romeo will take your breath away in his darling little café.
Café Prima Pasta
Lionel Richie says it's the place to eat, but the food really is of high quality.
News Café
Beginning life as a bookstore, News Café is now a fully-fledged lunch spot with a patio flanked by umbrellas and a menu that stretches way beyond simple sandwiches.
