With the sun shining nearly 365 days a year in Miami, there’s no excuse to wait until night falls to start the party. Popping bottles poolside with a bevy of babes is South Beach’s answer to a perfect day out, and there’s plenty of options to do it down here. We’ve narrowed down a few ways you can enjoy the best of South Beach’s day life. And rest assured, as soon as the sun goes down, there’s even more ways to do it all over again.
Hyde Beach Miami
Voted the Best Poolside Club 2014 by The Miami Times, Hyde Beach Miami is the ultimate poolside party destination. With 8,000 square feet of pool and beach, bottle service, signature cocktails and world class DJs, it doesn’t get better than Hyde Beach Miami for classy fun in the sun. Join J’Adore Sundays for a lounge-y brunch and garden vibe or go all out at Swim Club – for the classic pool party.
Raleigh South Beach
For more lo-key fun, start the day early at this timeless Art Deco watering hole. Order a mimosa (or seven) and brunch dished up by Miami’s Restaurant Michael Schwartz. Or, for those of you who haven’t even made it to bed from the night before, the Raleigh South Beach’s espresso bar is open 24-7, so you can have eggs and coffee with your impending hangover.
For the athletically inclined, go rogue: rent a set of skates, a longboard or a bike from Fritz Skate Bike & Surf on Washington Drive and head to the sidewalks of Lummus Park. The urban beachfront park has a sidewalk inspired by Brazil’s infamous Copacabana seaside promenade. In between bar hopping along the boulevard, check out the volleyball courts, pull up bars, or just take a breather on the beach with your tropical drink of choice in hand.
Splash Saturday’s @ The Clevelander Hotel
Bikini, bottles and babes: the Clevelander Hotel on Ocean Drive’s Splash party is a hot bed of fashion and entertainment with model showcases and DJs from 3 – 8 pm on the rooftop bar overlooking South Beach.
