SOUTH BEACH ~ MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA
It’s just before midnight on South Beach and the energized pulse along Ocean Drive is starting to palpitate.
This artery that bisects Miami’s famed art deco district is the happening place to be, especially after the sun goes and the neon glows. We meld with the masses that flock to the gridlocked thoroughfare where our adrenaline soars with the ongoing Latin beat. Enticing aromas waft from bustling sidewalk cafes offering us anything from Cuban cuisine to Floribbean fare. Backed by confetti coloured treasures and fronting the palm studded beach, this setting is a feast for our senses.
We mosey the interconnected Collins Avenue where a continued invitation for dusk to dawn delights is extended. Sophisticated high rises like The Delano, St Moritz, The National and The Hotel all have a retro flair with a New York feel. Epicureans revel in the many acclaimed culinary options en route, such as The Hotel’s Wish Restaurant where executive chef, E. Michael Reidt appeases the most discriminating palate with his French-Brazillian menu.
