Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Space
Get your glow sticks swinging at this so-late-you-can-watch-the-sunrise club in Downtown; Space cranks out music by the 'Royal Family of DJs', giving you opportunity to literally dance the night away.
Tequila Chicas
Tequila Chicas has that Caribbean straw hut feel to it, and the mojitos to match.
Base
With everything under one roof - from clothes to music - Base in a one-stop credit card-punishing stop.
Tongue and Cheek
Tongue & Cheek doesn't take itself too seriously but the relaxed vibe belies the genius in the kitchen. 
I Strada
Tired of Miami's flashy fashions? Then check out I Strada, which is all about comfortable, casual clothes for the more sensible Susans among us.
Holocaust Memorial
A desperately sad, moving and powerful experience.
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. 
Finnegan’s Way
Get your sports bar hit at Finnegan's Way with lager and greasy fries.
Whitelaw Hotel
The Whitelaw has the most electric 'we know we're here to party' feel of any hotel on SoBe...
AllSaints Spitalfields
Ridiculously popular Brit chain, AllSaints Spitalfields finally comes to the US in this fabulous outpost on Lincoln Road.
Art Center South Florida
Make time to stop by this small art centre, where some of Miami's most interesting young talent work; you might just find the perfect piece for that space above the fireplace.
Flamingo Park Tennis Center
Improve your ball skills at Flamingo Park Tennis Center, home to no less than 19 clay courts.
Purdy Lounge
Purdy Lounge is not a mantle-piece bar but it has a certain element of style.
Rose Bar
Lobby bars don't come much more luxurious than the Rose Bar at the Delano; expect an ultra-chic crowd of razor-thin models sipping overpriced cocktails. But that's half the appeal.
Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink
Michael's Genuine Food and Drink is a rarity among Miami restaurants: simple, snazzed-up comfort food based on green, 'slow food' credentials, that doesn't cost the earth.  
Automatic Slims
Picture a room full of America's Top model contestants and a lorry load of randy jocks.
Guess
Blinged-up denim for the cool kids.
Jet Ski Tours
Spy a celeb or two with Jet Ski Tours, which allows those who rent out its Yamahas to get as close to Star Island as is legally allowed.
Tarpoon Lagoon
With so many manmade wrecks along Miami's coastline, there's plenty of life to see beneath the water; take a dive with Tarpoon Lagoon.
Ola
Ola's cerviche's hit the spot.
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...
Escopazzo
Highly rated authentic Italian cuisine in an unlikely location.
La Moon
Colombian style diner with a large selection of foods to satisfy those stomachs.
James Royal Palm
Stunningly restored with a new feel as laid back as the amenities and service are sharp. 
Actors’ Playhouse – Miracle Theater
Watch both original and Broadway productions come to life at the Art Deco Miracle Theater, courtesy of the super-talented Actors' Playhouse.
Smith & Wollensky
Meaty classics by the waterside.
Nicole Miller
Gents, watch your credit cards - there'll be no stopping the lady in your life once she's stepped into Nicole Miller.
Excellence Luxury Car Rental
Hop in a high-end supercar from Excellence Luxury Car Rental and dazzle the ladies with your pistons.
Swine Southern Table and Bar
As Homer said, 'Mmmm......bacon'. 
Armani Exchange
A/X Armani Exchange needs little introduction - especially in Miami, when designer labels are clad to everyone who's anyone.
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.
Clinton Hotel
The Clinton looks after shoppers and nightclubbers alike, not forgetting dream therapy for the broke husband...
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.
The Setai
Number one hotel in Miami if you are a high-roller...
Miami Dolphins
Go Dolphins! Take in a game at the Sun Life Stadium, complete with foam finger.
Eagle Rider
Hire a Hog, pull on your leathers and rumble down SoBe's streets on a suitably stylish two-wheeler.
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.
