Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Spa at The Standard
The spa is the Standard Hotel's signature amenity, so you can bet your bottom dollar it's good. In fact we can testify that it is one of the best on South Beach, so make like a superstar and step inside.
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...
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.
Books & Books
Think you're well-read? Think again, as the sheer volume of tomes at the Lincoln Road branch of Books & Books will prove otherwise.
Joe’s Take Out
Excellent seafood picnic fare to take down to the beach.
Kung Fu Kitchen
Housed inside the Catalina Hotel, Kung Fu Kitchen offers lipsmackingly good dishes from all over Asia; be sure to get here early to snag a table.
Biltmore Hotel
Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.
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.
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.
Sanctuary
An oasis of calm style, the Sanctuary is a stroll away from the sexy fun of Collins Avenue...
Peter Lik Gallery
Find magnificent landscape photos for show and for sale at the Peter Lik Gallery on Lincoln Road.
Patagonia
South American flare abounds at Patagonia, which offers all the usual grilled meats expected of the region without a hefty price tag; wash everything down with a bottle from its well-stocked wine cellar.
Azul
Needing little introduction, Azul at the Mandarin Oriental is one of Miami's hottest tables; the M-Bar, at the other end of the hotel, adds to its allure.
Dolphin Mall
The Dolphin is a colossus of a mall that could easily consume an entire afternoon of your holiday.
Rainbow
Children and women first is the general rule of thumb when a ship is sinking, and it's also the case at Rainbow, a store specialising in little people and their stylish mothers.
Britto Central
The main studio of Romero Britto, the famous Brazilian pop artist.
Tapas Y Tintos
Charge your glass full of vino tinto while listening to the Gypsy Kings.
Crandon Park Tennis Center
Watch how the pros do it at Crandon Park Tennis Center, home to the annual Sony Ericsson Open.
C. Madeleine’s
You may need to call your bank and warn them before you step foot in this wonderland of fashion. 
Urban Outfitters
Low-key but no less stylish, Urban Outfitters has Miami's coolest kids looking sharp whatever the weather.
Club Deuce
The authentic Miami dive bar 'The Deuce' caters for every fetish.
Garcia’s Seafood Grille
A pleasing local restaurant which runs alongside it's sister fish market which means this is about as fresh as fresh gets when it comes to seafood.
Kidrobot
Take the little 'uns to Kidrobot; a stylish shrine to toys and clothes for luxury-loving kids.
The Victor Hotel
Jaques Garcia's jellyfish-themed boutique hotel draws in the celebs and their followers...
Waldorf Towers
A modern Art-Deco design together with the promise of absolute Miami fun makes Woldorf Towers an ideal location for a hair-letting-down-session...
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.
Monty’s
A pool-side watering hole that explodes on a Friday afternoon.
Anthropologie
If you're not inspired by the beautiful items on sale at Anthropologie, then you're beyond help; the stock is simply breathtaking.
Fly Boutique
New and vintage clothes are sold at Fly Boutique, one of Miami's trendiest fashion emporiums.
Tootsies Cabaret
Not the kind of place you would tell your family about, Tootsies leaves very little to the imagination. 
Mandarin Oriental Spa
As you'd expect from the Mandarin Oriental Spa, this three-floored wonder is spectacularly well-equipped with every treatment you could possibly dream up.
Treehouse
Treehouse is a slightly stripped-down version of the Miami clubbing experience, with a mix of lounge bar, dancefloor room and outdoor garden to choose from.

A near perfect man-cave serving burgers, sport, live music, video games and beer all thoughtfully arranged to let unleash your inner rock-child.

Club Monaco
Chic yet affordable style at this classic wear label with a penchant for monochRome colour.

Lime Fresh Mexican Grill
