Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

El Palacio de los Jugos
El Palacio de los Jugos is a firm family favourite in the Flagami neighbourhood, serving up authentic Cuban food and fresh, natural juices.
Pérez Art Museum Miami
Housed in an eco-friendly, multi-million dollar space, the Pérez Art Museum Miami showcases 20th and 21st century international contemporary art.
The Townhouse
The Townhouse pulls off the homely feel with chic aplomb...
Charlotte Bakery
A mouth-watering array of South American pastries that taste that good you know they can't be good for you....
Chelsea Hotel
Stylish yet ever so slightly budget, this hotel is a favourite of young models.
Aventura Mall
Everything you would expect: a bucket load of shops in which to burn your hard-earned cash.
Bebe
If anywhere knows what women want, it's Bebe; its cool clothes are perfect for sultry SoBe nights.
Miami Kite Boarding
Take off with Miami Kite Boarding, which will have you flying high above the waves in no time.
Banana Republic
Get the preppy look at Banana Republic; geek chic is so now.
Morgan’s
American comfort food classics are served up at Morgan's, albeit with a contemporary twist; interesting interior design adds to its panache.
Catalina Hotel
Excellently located, the Catalina is a subtle retreat perched beside the big boys of the South Beach Group.
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.
La Sanwicherie
Fit-to-bursting baguettes and overstuffed sandwiches are the order of the day at La Sandwicherie, which is the perfect place to come to stock up for a beach picnic.
Whitelaw Hotel
The Whitelaw has the most electric 'we know we're here to party' feel of any hotel on SoBe...
Tequila Chicas
Tequila Chicas has that Caribbean straw hut feel to it, and the mojitos to match.
La Moon
Colombian style diner with a large selection of foods to satisfy those stomachs.
Florida Surf Lessons
Surf's up, dude! At least it is at Florida Surf Lessons, which will get you up and on your board in no time at all.
Pelican
This Diesel-inspired, 30-themed room hotel is the most original in Miami. It oozes flair.
Miami Ultimate Frisbee
Frisbee a serious competitor sport? Only in Miami.
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
Tootsies Cabaret
Not the kind of place you would tell your family about, Tootsies leaves very little to the imagination. 
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.
Lime Fresh Mexican Grill
Some of the best fast food in Miami and certainly some of the healthiest if only you can resist the frozen margaritas...
The Stage
Some of the best live music in Florida served with a chilled Southern vibe. 
Churchill’s Pub
A near perfect man-cave serving burgers, sport, live music, video games and beer all thoughtfully arranged to let unleash your inner rock-child.  
Kill Your Idol
Kitschy-dive bar aesthetic is an refreshing South Beach antidote...
Versailles
Cuban classics abound on the menu at Versailles (ignore the French name), which is always packed out with locals. A good sign, if ever there was one.
Wood Tavern
Authentically hip beer garden and bar that draws an arty crowd from the Design District...
Circa 39
Circa 39 is a cheeky Art Deco establishment near acres of free sand...
The Mercury South Beach
Mercury rising! Despite its hotness, The Mercury has remained unpretentious; its no-frills approach to accommodation has ensured a consistent crowd of cool, couldn't-care-less types...
St. Augustine
Hotel St. Augustine may look like a spa, but it's not (the clue's in the name); it is, in fact, a hedonistic hotel with clean, comfortable rooms, spa treatments galore, and a quiet location that's perfectly positioned for a little R&R.
Hotel Ocean
Unassuming but comfortable, Hotel Ocean does what it says on the tin with practical rooms for affordable prices. Surprisingly, perhaps, the rooms are stylish, too. A no-brainer...
Chesterfield Hotel
Happy hour at the in-house bar isn't the only reason to stay at The Chesterfield; clean, comfortable rooms and free airport transfers clinch the deal.
