This well-known landmark hotel and bar is famous for having a pool in the middle of the front patio, where guests commonly dangle their feet, or even dive right into the pool at this haute hangout.

Mango’s Tropical Cafe

This is a U.S. version of Havana clubs of days past: salsa bands, sexy dancers in tight leopard-print hot pants, frothy tropical drinks and boisterous, lively atmosphere.

Nikki Beach Miami

Situated directly on the beach, Nikki Beach serves up seafood and craft cocktails to the rich and famous. If you are interested in a slightly more subdued scene, venture upstairs to the Pearl Champagne Lounge. This upscale lounge is best known for serving champagne along with snacks and small plates in a bright, calming setting.


Crobar is a South Beach mainstay, a cavernous, chaotic atmosphere that will keep you dancing until the sun comes up. The club also draws its popularity from the many famous DJ’s and party hosts that frequent it.


This small venue offers live jazz music every night, often with a Latin beat that caters to clubbers with a more refined taste.
