Melrose Arch Pool & Library Bar
Set in the super-stylish Melrose Arch Hotel, the Pool Bar is so very South Beach Miami and a no-brainer when it comes to supping drinks in the glorious sunshine. Tables and chairs are even built into the shallow end of the pool, with patrons rolling up their trousers and enjoying their cocktails ankle-deep, while tunes are pumped out from underwater a` la Delano. The hotel’s 24-hour Library Bar, however, is best used in the winter, with a cosy ambience and a bar serving cigars and cognac to a classy, upwardly-mobile clientele. Once you’ve propped up the bar for long enough, consider dinner at the hotel’s restaurant or hankering down in one of its many sumptuous suites.
