Anthropologie
If you're not inspired by the beautiful items on sale at Anthropologie, then you're beyond help; the stock is simply breathtaking.

Unless you've been living under a culturally-devoid rock, you'll undoubtedly have heard of Art Basel Miami Beach; it's here that artists and galleries exhibit their creative wares for the world to see.
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.
Art Deco

The classic Art Deco design oozes understated style and draws in an exclusive crowd...

Small but perfectly formed to soak up the decadence of a perfect night out.

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.
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).
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.

Follow Bill Clinton to the Biltmore hotel and revel in luxury under hand-painted vaulted ceilings.

Café Prima Pasta
Lionel Richie says it's the place to eat, but the food really is of high quality.
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.
Cantina La Veinte
Cantina La Veinte, with chef Santiago Gomez at the helm, is a riot of a restaurant with Mexican flavours and bold, bright design in Downtown Miami.

CVI.CHE 105
CVI.CHE 105 is a much-hyped, enormous Miami restaurant, which serves good value Peruvian fare among chic but relaxed industrial-style decor.
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.
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.
De Rodriguez on Ocean
