Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

NIU Kitchen
A Catalan tapas restaurant, NIU Kitchen casts a gastronomic glow over its corner of Downtown Miami with its flavour-packed dishes.
Nobu
There's sushi, and then there's Nobu Matsuhisa's sushi. Opened in 1999, Las Vegas Nobu, which earned a four-star rating from Mobil, is one of the brightest stars in Matsuhisa's stellar culinary empire.
Ola
Ola's cerviche's hit the spot.
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.
Pelican
This Diesel-inspired, 30-themed room hotel is the most original in Miami. It oozes flair.
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.
Prime One Twelve
Excellent steak, a prime location and the type of clientele that the paparazzi loves.
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.
Rec Rooms
South Beach retro club from Amy Sacco's stable promises great things...
Setai Grill
Be lulled into the sumptuousness of dark wooden panelling and pearl that cocoons the Setai and prepare for a feast. 
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).
Spire Bar
A hide-away roof-top bar, lit by The Hotel's Tiffany spire.
St. Regis Bal Harbour
Opulence Miami-style - sell the family silver, you'll never want to leave. 
The Cypress Room
A timely reminder that fine dining still has its place and starched table cloths and buttoned-up waiters aren't just the reserve of period dramas.
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 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.
The Raleigh
A regular photo shoot location and a hang-out for locals. Stylish, and it knows it...
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...
The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
The Shore Club
Everybody wants a piece of the Shore Club. It is one of the pillars of Miami decadence...
The Vagabond
Three stages keeps a seemingly endless supply of global DJ's, cool bands and quirky acts the pick of the cool bunch. 
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...
The Victor Hotel
Jaques Garcia's jellyfish-themed boutique hotel draws in the celebs and their followers...
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
Twist
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...
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.
