Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

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.
Rainbow
Children and women first is the general rule of thumb when a ship is sinking, and it's also the case at Rainbow, a store specialising in little people and their stylish mothers.
Dash
Dash needs little introduction; as the boutique belonging to the crazy Kardashian clan, it's had more than enough exposure across hours of reality TV footage.
Patagonia
South American flare abounds at Patagonia, which offers all the usual grilled meats expected of the region without a hefty price tag; wash everything down with a bottle from its well-stocked wine cellar.
Azul
Needing little introduction, Azul at the Mandarin Oriental is one of Miami's hottest tables; the M-Bar, at the other end of the hotel, adds to its allure.
Dolphin Mall
The Dolphin is a colossus of a mall that could easily consume an entire afternoon of your holiday.
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.
Books & Books
Think you're well-read? Think again, as the sheer volume of tomes at the Lincoln Road branch of Books & Books will prove otherwise.

Kung Fu Kitchen
Housed inside the Catalina Hotel, Kung Fu Kitchen offers lipsmackingly good dishes from all over Asia; be sure to get here early to snag a table.
Score
Score reminds SoBe that this is still gay-friendly town; follow the large black and red target logo and do as the name suggests.
Sanctuary
An oasis of calm style, the Sanctuary is a stroll away from the sexy fun of Collins Avenue...
Peter Lik Gallery
Find magnificent landscape photos for show and for sale at the Peter Lik Gallery on Lincoln Road.
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
Monty’s
A pool-side watering hole that explodes on a Friday afternoon.
Garcia’s Seafood Grille
A pleasing local restaurant which runs alongside it's sister fish market which means this is about as fresh as fresh gets when it comes to seafood.
Kidrobot
Take the little 'uns to Kidrobot; a stylish shrine to toys and clothes for luxury-loving kids.
Tootsies Cabaret
Not the kind of place you would tell your family about, Tootsies leaves very little to the imagination. 
Crandon Park Tennis Center
Watch how the pros do it at Crandon Park Tennis Center, home to the annual Sony Ericsson Open.
Baru Urbano
Boisterous Baru Urbano is the place to come for a snack between shops, or indeed a drink or three at hour happy hour every evening.
C. Madeleine’s
You may need to call your bank and warn them before you step foot in this wonderland of fashion. 
Urban Outfitters

As you'd expect from the Mandarin Oriental Spa, this three-floored wonder is spectacularly well-equipped with every treatment you could possibly dream up.
Blue Moon
A tranquil, picturesque hotel located in the heart of Miami Beach, just seconds from the beach...
Miami Beach Parasail

The Stage
Some of the best live music in Florida served with a chilled Southern vibe. 
World Erotic Art Museum
Sex sells, as they say, and that was certainly the case when Naomi Wilzig started snapping up erotic artefacts more than 20 years ago; her collection can be found at the World Erotic Art Museum. Try not to blush.
Treehouse
Treehouse is a slightly stripped-down version of the Miami clubbing experience, with a mix of lounge bar, dancefloor room and outdoor garden to choose from.
