Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

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.
EAST, Miami
EAST, Miami makes the views of surrounding Brickell one of its main design features, throwing in fine dining and drinking and a luxe pool for good measure.
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.
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.
Bay of Pigs Museum
The Bay of Pigs Museum tells the fascinating story of Cuban exiles-turned-operatives during the CIA's top secret mission to invade Cuba in 1961.
Blackbird Ordinary
The perfect opportunity for the hidden hedonist to let loose and release that mid-week bender.
Mekka
As one of Downtown's most versatile spaces, Mekka is home to four (or five) clubs in one; indeed, even the most demanding dance floor divas are sure to find something to suit their fickle moods.
Florida Marlins
Baseball is big business in Florida, which is why the Florida Marlins are so beloved in their hometown of Miami.
Sagamore
Not even Hercule Poirot could find a stray finger print here. The Sagamore is immaculate...
Rubell Collection
Founded by Don and Mera Rubell, the Rubell Family Collection comrpises big names such as Damien Hirst and Cindy Sherman; a 40,000-edition strong research library adds depth.
Dean’s Gold
Catering for both men and women, gay and straight, this gentleman's club is widely regarded as the finest in Miami.
De Rodriguez on Ocean
Owned and run by chef Douglas Rodriguez - something of a celebrity in South Beach and once name-dropped by Newsweek - De Rodriquez on Ocean serves up high-end Cuban cuisine on Ocean Drive.
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.
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.
Bass Art Museum
The Bass has a well-deserved reputation for being a top art museum.
Lowe Museum
With 13,000 pieces on show, many from the ancient world, Lowe is a must-visit museum for the discerning art-lover.
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 Broken Shaker
An utterly charming outdoor garden filled with somnolescent sofas and armchairs glowing under strings of fairy lights provide a picture-perfect backdrop to sip what some say are the finest hand-crafted cocktails in Miami.
Ziff Jewish Museum
A museum and former synagogue that represents the history of the large Jewish community in Miami.
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
Miami Hurricanes
As Florida's favourite sports team, the Hurricanes can do no wrong - unless they lost (which they don't do often).
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...
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
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. 
Holocaust Memorial
A desperately sad, moving and powerful experience.
Automatic Slims
Picture a room full of America's Top model contestants and a lorry load of randy jocks.
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.
The River
You can always go Downtown, someone once said - and that's exactly what we recommend you do for The River, which serves up piled-high plates of sumptuous seafood.
Miami Dolphins
Go Dolphins! Take in a game at the Sun Life Stadium, complete with foam finger.
Score
Score reminds SoBe that this is still gay-friendly town; follow the large black and red target logo and do as the name suggests.
Dash
Dash needs little introduction; as the boutique belonging to the crazy Kardashian clan, it's had more than enough exposure across hours of reality TV footage.
Peter Lik Gallery
Find magnificent landscape photos for show and for sale at the Peter Lik Gallery on Lincoln Road.
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
