Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Cavalier
A charming restaurant with adventurous Italian fare - just don't try to understand the waiters.
Joe’s Stone Crab
Joe's Stone Crabs are where it's at if you are a crab fanatic.
Colony Theater
A range of performance arts can be enjoyed at the Colony Theater, an Art Deco gem that stands proud on Lincoln Road.
Sagamore
Not even Hercule Poirot could find a stray finger print here. The Sagamore is immaculate...
Uncle Sam’s Music
DJs stock up on new (and old) tunes at Uncle Sam's Music, where vinyl is God and the customers nothing but local subjects.
Lowe Museum
With 13,000 pieces on show, many from the ancient world, Lowe is a must-visit museum for the discerning art-lover.
Miami Hurricanes
As Florida's favourite sports team, the Hurricanes can do no wrong - unless they lost (which they don't do often).
Dolce Italian
Drag yourself off the beach and into this haven of Italian refinement for the finest Italian on the landmark Collins Avenue. 
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.
The Raleigh
A regular photo shoot location and a hang-out for locals. Stylish, and it knows it...
Ziff Jewish Museum
A museum and former synagogue that represents the history of the large Jewish community in Miami.
Caffe Abbracci
While its interiors could do with a style overhaul - the décor is more Miami Vice than Miami Nice - Caffe Abbracci has succeeded where others have failed through good service and a reliable menu of Italian favourites.
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.
Miami Dolphins
Go Dolphins! Take in a game at the Sun Life Stadium, complete with foam finger.
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.
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
Fly Boutique
New and vintage clothes are sold at Fly Boutique, one of Miami's trendiest fashion emporiums.
Casa Tua
Extortionately priced food but it is out of this world.
Passage to India
Passage to India sells bohemian trinkets to hippies with an eye for style.
National
The National talks a big SoBe game with perhaps the best-looking pool in town...
Vizcaya Museum
Boasting antiques from the 16th to 19th centuries, this stately home is a stunner; if you're craving a bit of glamour away from South Beach, Vizcaya is the place to be.
Astor Hotel
The classic Art Deco design oozes understated style and draws in an exclusive crowd...
Maximo Gomez Park
Watching chess is not a fun experience, unless the Cuban dudes are playing.
Romeo’s Café
Romeo will take your breath away in his darling little café.
Café Prima Pasta
Lionel Richie says it's the place to eat, but the food really is of high quality.
News Café
Beginning life as a bookstore, News Café is now a fully-fledged lunch spot with a patio flanked by umbrellas and a menu that stretches way beyond simple sandwiches.
David’s Café
Have hangover food ordered directly to your spot on the beach from David's Café, which serves up tasty home-cooked Cuban fare on Collins Avenue.
Café Abracci
Cafe Abracci could well be our top lunch location in Coral Gables.
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.
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).
