Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Base
With everything under one roof - from clothes to music - Base in a one-stop credit card-punishing stop.
Flamingo Park Tennis Center
Improve your ball skills at Flamingo Park Tennis Center, home to no less than 19 clay courts.
Purdy Lounge
Purdy Lounge is not a mantle-piece bar but it has a certain element of style.
Rose Bar
Lobby bars don't come much more luxurious than the Rose Bar at the Delano; expect an ultra-chic crowd of razor-thin models sipping overpriced cocktails. But that's half the appeal.
AllSaints Spitalfields
Ridiculously popular Brit chain, AllSaints Spitalfields finally comes to the US in this fabulous outpost on Lincoln Road.
Tequila Chicas
Tequila Chicas has that Caribbean straw hut feel to it, and the mojitos to match.
Finnegan’s Way
Get your sports bar hit at Finnegan's Way with lager and greasy fries.
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
I Strada
Tired of Miami's flashy fashions? Then check out I Strada, which is all about comfortable, casual clothes for the more sensible Susans among us.
Holocaust Memorial
A desperately sad, moving and powerful experience.

Hop in a high-end supercar from Excellence Luxury Car Rental and dazzle the ladies with your pistons.
Escopazzo
Highly rated authentic Italian cuisine in an unlikely location.
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
Michael's Genuine Food and Drink is a rarity among Miami restaurants: simple, snazzed-up comfort food based on green, 'slow food' credentials, that doesn't cost the earth.  
Automatic Slims
Picture a room full of America's Top model contestants and a lorry load of randy jocks.
Tarpoon Lagoon
With so many manmade wrecks along Miami's coastline, there's plenty of life to see beneath the water; take a dive with Tarpoon Lagoon.
Swine Southern Table and Bar
As Homer said, 'Mmmm......bacon'. 
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp.

Spy a celeb or two with Jet Ski Tours, which allows those who rent out its Yamahas to get as close to Star Island as is legally allowed.
La Moon
Colombian style diner with a large selection of foods to satisfy those stomachs.
Actors’ Playhouse – Miracle Theater
Watch both original and Broadway productions come to life at the Art Deco Miracle Theater, courtesy of the super-talented Actors' Playhouse.
Armani Exchange
A/X Armani Exchange needs little introduction - especially in Miami, when designer labels are clad to everyone who's anyone.

The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
