Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Miami

Peter Lik Gallery
Find magnificent landscape photos for show and for sale at the Peter Lik Gallery on Lincoln Road.
PHS Helicopters Over Miami
Get a bird's eye of Miami via helicopter at PHS; there are a number of choppers to choose from and a range of routes to fly. Hop over to the local winery with the ultimate in transportation. 
Post Blue Jean Co.
Those who appreciate a good pair of jeans should head to Post Blue Jean Co., which is a shrine to the denim staple.
Prime One Twelve
Excellent steak, a prime location and the type of clientele that the paparazzi loves.
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.
Puma Store
Fitness-orientated Miami loves the Puma Store, which stocks an extensive range of style-conscious sportswear.
Purdy Lounge
Purdy Lounge is not a mantle-piece bar but it has a certain element of style.
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.
Rec Rooms
South Beach retro club from Amy Sacco's stable promises great things...
Ritz South Beach Spa
Looks are everything in Miami, which is why it's important to pamper yourself before you hit the town. Do so in style at the Ritz Carlton's in-house spa, which will have you relaxed and rejuvenated in no time.
Romeo’s Café
Romeo will take your breath away in his darling little café.
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.
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.
Ruff N Tuff Paintball
Unleash the fury at Ruff N Tuff Paintball, where you can shoot friends and family across three different battlegrounds. Extremely therapeutic.
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.
Sagamore
Not even Hercule Poirot could find a stray finger print here. The Sagamore is immaculate...
Sanctuary
An oasis of calm style, the Sanctuary is a stroll away from the sexy fun of Collins Avenue...
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.
Setai Grill
Be lulled into the sumptuousness of dark wooden panelling and pearl that cocoons the Setai and prepare for a feast. 
Sky Dive Miami
Take a leap of faith with Sky Dive Miami, where you'll plummet towards the city face-first either solo or tandem. Either way, it's an adrenaline-pumping experience indeed.
Skyline
Joining the Mile High Club at Skyline is much easier than in the confines of a cramped toilet 30,000-feet up; with its entire concept based around air travel, it's frivolous Miami fun at its finest (and most ridiculous).
SLS Hotel
Bringing an LA vibe to South Beach and the cool kids just can't get enough of it. 
Smith & Wollensky
Meaty classics by the waterside.
Soho Beach House
Glamorous members' only hotel with a sophisticated vibe.
Soho House founder Nick Jones talks to Hg2
What makes Soho House founder Nick Jones tick? He talks to us about his impressive portfolio, and what makes him a hedonist.
South Florida Limos
Rock up to the red carpet like the SoBe superstar you are courtesy of South Florida Limos.
Spa at the Setai
The Setai is the best hotel on South Beach, so it makes sense that its spa is one of the best too. Giving pampering and preening an Oriental twist, its treatments are truly indulgent.
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.
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.
Spiga
No attitude, just good Italian food in a smart setting.
Spire Bar
A hide-away roof-top bar, lit by The Hotel's Tiffany spire.
St. Augustine
Hotel St. Augustine may look like a spa, but it's not (the clue's in the name); it is, in fact, a hedonistic hotel with clean, comfortable rooms, spa treatments galore, and a quiet location that's perfectly positioned for a little R&R.
St. Regis Bal Harbour
Opulence Miami-style - sell the family silver, you'll never want to leave. 
Star Image
So many clothes but nothing to wear? Head to Star Image, which will have you looking like the SoBe superstar you are.
Substance and Style – Sustain Opens in Miami
Miami's Sustain stays true to its name, whilst producing some of the city's best health food.
Sugarcane
Spacious and sumptuous, Sugarcane draws on inspiration from Havana Nights with beamed ceilings and oversized fans; its menu, which combines a number of different cuisines, is a triumph.
Sushi Samba Dromo
Spot the celebrities between mouthfuls and then pretend you weren't looking.
Swine Southern Table and Bar
As Homer said, 'Mmmm......bacon'. 
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.
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.
