Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

11th Street Diner
This authentic American diner offers an efficient hang-over cure.
A la Folie
A la Folie is wafting out a July Revolution with its stuffed crepes and eccentric chef.
Alessandra Gold Concept Store
A concept store so cutting edge it should come with a safety warning.
American Airlines Arena
Expect to see a few celebs in the crowd at the American Airlines Arena, particularly if the Miami Heat are playing.
Art Deco
The awe-inspiring Art Deco that lines South Beach is one of Miami's defining features, so be sure to take it all in - camera in-hand.
Automatic Slims
Picture a room full of America's Top model contestants and a lorry load of randy jocks.
Aventura Mall
Everything you would expect: a bucket load of shops in which to burn your hard-earned cash.
Bal Harbour Shops
The Bal Harbour mall is where it's at for every label under the sun.
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.
Bentley Hotel & Beach Hotel
Like a cool kid who doesn't have to brag, The Bentley is one of Miami's most understated stays - but doesn't disappoint with creature comforts galore and a rooftop pool (a must in this sun-soaked city of sin).
Blackbird Ordinary
The perfect opportunity for the hidden hedonist to let loose and release that mid-week bender.
Blue Collar
Lashings of waistband-busting comfort food classics are the draw at Blue Collar, Daniel Serfer’s laid-back restaurant in the MiMo Historic District.
Blue Moon
A tranquil, picturesque hotel located in the heart of Miami Beach, just seconds from the beach...
Boucher Brothers
Tear up the surf astride a suitably stylish jet-ski courtesy of Boucher Brothers, which is in charge of all rentals on Miami Beach.
Catalina Hotel
Excellently located, the Catalina is a subtle retreat perched beside the big boys of the South Beach Group.
Chelsea Hotel
Stylish yet ever so slightly budget, this hotel is a favourite of young models.
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.
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.  
Circa 39
Circa 39 is a cheeky Art Deco establishment near acres of free sand...
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
Club Deuce
The authentic Miami dive bar 'The Deuce' caters for every fetish.
Club Madonna
Your only choice for strippers right here and right now on South Beach.
Dog Bar
Keep your dog in the manner to which it's undoubtedly become accustomed at Dog Bar, where a dog isn't just a dog; it's a pampered prince/ss.
Dolce Italian
Drag yourself off the beach and into this haven of Italian refinement for the finest Italian on the landmark Collins Avenue. 
Eagle Rider
Hire a Hog, pull on your leathers and rumble down SoBe's streets on a suitably stylish two-wheeler.
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.
Escopazzo
Highly rated authentic Italian cuisine in an unlikely location.
Fillmore Miami Beach
Holding 2,700 spectactors, the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater is home to name-brand live entertainment.
Finnegan’s Way
Get your sports bar hit at Finnegan's Way with lager and greasy fries.
Florida Marlins
Baseball is big business in Florida, which is why the Florida Marlins are so beloved in their hometown of Miami.
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.
Fly Boutique
New and vintage clothes are sold at Fly Boutique, one of Miami's trendiest fashion emporiums.
Fontana
Found at the Biltmore Hotel, Fontana is the perfect place for a languid lunch beneath a parasol; work off the calories with a lap in the oversized pool afterwards.
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.
Harley Rentals
Rip along Miami's highways astride a Harley police in hot pursuit.
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...
ISA Boutique
Elegant one-stop-shop that ensures you're as cool from the top of your head to the tips of your toes in the latest fashions. 
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp. 
Jazid
Jazid attracts an eclectic bunch of reggae rock and disappointed acid jazz lovers.
Joe’s Take Out
Excellent seafood picnic fare to take down to the beach.
