Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Gale South Beach
A glamorous hotel that makes the most of its Tropical Art Deco style and unobstructed rooftop views of the ocean, the Gale South Beach is a local legend.
The Miami Beach EDITION
A glamourous oceanside hotel with a luxury spa and signature restaurant from Jean-Georges Vongerichten, The Miami Beach EDITION promises guests nothing but sun, fun, and decadently good times.
Pubbelly
A critically acclaimed gastropub in Miami Beach, the small dishes at Pubbelly have an Asian twist and more than one nod from the James Beard Foundation.
Cantina La Veinte
Cantina La Veinte, with chef Santiago Gomez at the helm, is a riot of a restaurant with Mexican flavours and bold, bright design in Downtown Miami.
La Mar by Gaston Acurio
A Peruvian restaurant in the luxe surrounds of the Mandarin Oriental, La Mar by Gaston Acurio offers superlative cuisine and views of the Miami skyline.
NIU Kitchen
A Catalan tapas restaurant, NIU Kitchen casts a gastronomic glow over its corner of Downtown Miami with its flavour-packed dishes.
COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach
The COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach is an Art Deco hotel with sweeping views out over the Atlantic Ocean, a spa, and delicious dining and drinking venues.
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.
Prime One Twelve
Excellent steak, a prime location and the type of clientele that the paparazzi loves.
Amethyst Couture
A fashionista's find; Amethyst Couture has everything a gal needs for a night on the tiles.
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.
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 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.
Ola
Ola's cerviche's hit the spot.
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.
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.
Britto Central
The main studio of Romero Britto, the famous Brazilian pop artist.
Waldorf Towers
A modern Art-Deco design together with the promise of absolute Miami fun makes Woldorf Towers an ideal location for a hair-letting-down-session...
Anthropologie
If you're not inspired by the beautiful items on sale at Anthropologie, then you're beyond help; the stock is simply breathtaking.
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...
Mansion
A perfect example of glitzy Miami nightlife, Mansion delivers six VIP areas, five dance rooms and very pricey cocktails, but if you're looking for a piece of the celebrity scene, you can get it here.
Astor Hotel
The classic Art Deco design oozes understated style and draws in an exclusive crowd...
Icebox Café
If it's good enough for Oprah and her yo-yoing waistline, then the cakes at Icebox Café are certainly good enough for us.
The Viceroy
Don't wander about the Viceroy under the influence; the interiors are trippy, to say the least, with an outdoor living space that's got more than a little Alice in Wonderland about it...
Lords South Beach
The first truly gay hotel slap in the middle of South Beach...
Gansevoort Miami Beach
Gansevoort Miami Beach knows what beach bunnies want, and gives it to them by the bucket-and-spade load with a ludicrously oversized beach club and a breathtaking rooftop pool and bar. And that's before you even step a well-heeled foot inside.
Epic Hotel
The Epic certainly lives up to its name with epic interiors that are remembered long after your stay; Asian restaurant Zuma finishes things off fabulously...
Betsy
As the name suggest, the Betsy is all about cutesy chic, with seekers of solitude descending on its quiet Ocean Drive location for peace, quiet and creature comforts galore.
