Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Colony Theater
A range of performance arts can be enjoyed at the Colony Theater, an Art Deco gem that stands proud on Lincoln Road.
Doral Golf Resort
Argyle-clad golf fans can't get enough of The Doral, which boasts no less than five championship golf courses across 34,000 yards.
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.
Magic City Casino
Fritter away the green stuff at Magic City Casino, which would have even non-gamblers risking it all.
Joe’s Stone Crab
Joe's Stone Crabs are where it's at if you are a crab fanatic.
Miami Flightseeing
Treat a loved one to a sunset flight in your own private aircraft at Miami Flightseeing - guaranteed to get the sparks flying all over again.
Eden Roc Spa
Spoil yourself with treatments you may never knew you needed but you'll wonder how you ever lived without. 
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.
A1 Limousine
While limos may be considered tacky everywhere else in the world, they're still considered fair game in Miami. Ride like nobody's watching.
Chelsea Hotel
Stylish yet ever so slightly budget, this hotel is a favourite of young models.
Diesel
Jeans with attitude. In fact, everything with attitude at Diesel. And, goodness, does it pay off.
Talavera
Waving the flag for authentic Mexcian cuisine in Miami is Talavera, which champions a menu of intense flavours. Be sure to wash everything down with a margarita or three.
Soho Beach House
Glamorous members' only hotel with a sophisticated vibe.
Aventura Mall
Everything you would expect: a bucket load of shops in which to burn your hard-earned cash.
Tantra
Things get feisty here after dinner, especially on Monday nights; expect the tables to be hopping with more than just cocktails as the night progresses.
Ferrari
There's only one thing cooler than owning a Ferrari - and that's owning a Ferrari and all the goodies that go with it. Stock up on said items here.
Delano Hotel
A new version of South Beach's original icon.
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.
Miami Ballooning
Ballooning will give you the best view of the areas surrounding Miami, but there's nothing average about this flight; Don will take you for a ride you will never forget.
Dean’s Gold
Catering for both men and women, gay and straight, this gentleman's club is widely regarded as the finest in Miami.
AG Adriano Goldschmied
Denim is king at AG Adriano Goldschmied, which houses premium jeans in a sleek, sexy setting.
Original Penguin
With so many golf courses in Florida, it makes sense to stock up on argyle-patterned fashion at Original Penguin.
Bass Art Museum
The Bass has a well-deserved reputation for being a top art museum.
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.
Lowe Museum
With 13,000 pieces on show, many from the ancient world, Lowe is a must-visit museum for the discerning art-lover.
Vue/Passage Bar
Flanking the pool at Hotel Victor, Vue/Passage Bar is made up of two connected areas that cater to all your eating and drinking needs. Great as your first port of call.
Victoria’s Secret
And we didn't think SoBe's fashionistas could wear much less. Apparently they can, particularly when clad in lacy underthings from Victoria's Secret.
Lucky Brand
If Lucky Brand jeans are good enough for the world's shiniest superstars, then they're certainly good enough for us; snap them up here.
Safari Bar
Whether it's people-watching outside on the terrace or cocktail-sipping inside at the bar, the Safari Bar is one of the coolest places to chillax in the city; happy-hour makes it even better.
Spire Bar
A hide-away roof-top bar, lit by The Hotel's Tiffany spire.
Bebe
If anywhere knows what women want, it's Bebe; its cool clothes are perfect for sultry SoBe nights.
The Room
One of the best-hidden secrets that SoBe has to offer. Try a tipple from their international selection of beer and wine, but don't expect a cocktail anytime soon.
Affliction
Get the Miami look at Affliction, where a graphic tee is sure to pack a punch.
Alessandra Gold Concept Store
A concept store so cutting edge it should come with a safety warning.
Exclusive Auto Rental
There's nowhere better suited to a roof-down convertible than Miami, which is why petrol heads flock to Exclusive Auto Rental to pick one up.
Mova
As is expected of Miami - and indeed, a gay lounge - Mova serves up multi-coloured cocktails amid fabulously flamboyant surroundings.
Puma Store
Fitness-orientated Miami loves the Puma Store, which stocks an extensive range of style-conscious sportswear.
Bayfront Park Amphitheater
Music, comedy and theatre can all be enjoyed at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater, a 6,500-seat outdoor performance space.
