Miami means sunshine and sand filled days and celebratory dinners alfresco. When in Miami we stay at The Standard which is equally a place to be seen and a relaxing escape. Mornings at The Standard mean a swim overlooking the bay and a spa treatment at The Standard Spa. A fresh and healthy lunch from Pura Vida fuels the day before exploring the works at both The Bass Museum, The Rubell Collection and the UM Art Gallery. Miami nights revolve around dinner with friends at The Soho Beach House, Swan, Le Sirenuse at The Surf Club or South Beach’s iconic Casa Tua. For the best sushi in town, Makato in Bal Habour after a visit to The Webster at Bal Harbor shops. In need of a sweet? Sneak in a trip to the very fun and sugar laden Happy Place Donuts or for an Eastern European style afternoon snack Zak the Baker. Miami has no shortage of palm trees, but for a little more greenery we love Plant the Future for unique plants with an artistic twist. Books & Books is the local resource for stocking up on beach reads.
