With the heavy influx of art and design in Miami the nightlife scene has to keep up. With so many newbars and restaurants opening up every month it can be hard to choose, so I have selected some hot spots for you!

Rooftop at the 1 Hotel, South Beach
This rooftop seriously has one of the best hotel pool views on the planet! 1 Hotel is eco-friendly with a matching rooftop bar to go along with it, it’s the most scenic on the beach. In one direction, you can see clear out into the Atlantic, and in the other you can see the Miami skyline. This urban rooftop with ocean views is the perfect place to soak up the sun with a drink at hand.

Juvia, South Beach
This is definitely a great place to take a date with and gaze at the wonderful view of the city. Try a Purple Juvia: Belvedere, Chambord, blackberry, and lemon juice.  A great drink choice to sip on while you lean by the ivy-covered wall, and enjoy the award-winning design and views of the ocean.

Area 31, Downtown
You’ll truly feel astonished when you stand at the edge of this bar on the 31st floor of the Epic Hotel. You must try the Plantation: a cocktail featuring peppercorn-infused Brugal extra-dry rum, coconut white balsamic shrub, lime, honey, and ginger beer. Sip on this poolside and enjoy the Miami heat!
