Breakfast: News Cafe
News Cafe is a super iconic 24-hour restaurant and newsstand on Miami Beach. It’s 3 blocks away from the Versace Mansion, Casa Casuarina, and Gianni was a frequent patron.
Sleep: Delano South Beach Hotel
With its soaring lobby and subtle seductions, Delano is the hotel that changed South Beach forever. Designed by Philippe Starck, Delano South Beach balances eclectic details with grand public spaces that are playful, elegant, quietly theatrical and filled with all-night energy.
Must see: Versace Mansion
Officially named Casa Casuarina, this one-of-a-kind Miami Beach property is more commonly known as the “Versace Mansion” because it was previously owned by late Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace. The Ocean Drive mansion where Gianni Versace lived and died is now a luxury boutique hotel called:The Villa by Barton G.
Dinner: STK Miami
STK artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Miami is located in the heart of Miami Beach, bringing the pulse of New York to the rhythm of South Beach. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jumbo Lump Crab Salad.
Clubbing: Mynt Lounge
Located in South Beach, the uber-upscale Mynt Lounge is a staple among Miami dance clubs with a reputation for attracting high rollers and celebrity elite. Those fortunate enough to get in , will enjoy well-known DJs spinning house and hip-hop tunes that are sure to get you on the dance floor. One interesting tidbit: Mynt features an aromatherapy system which infuses the air with a variety of scents — mint, of course, remains the hands-down favorite.
