When you stay at Fontainebleau Miami Beach there are plenty of places to sit down, take in the salty sea air and enjoy a decadent cocktail. Stop by the bar and lounge at Gotham Steak where the bartenders can whip up whiskey, scotch, bourbon and tequila drinks. You can also sit outside and smoke a stogie — just order one from the expansive cigar menu. For Italian drinks at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, head to Scarpetta’s bar — it has a wraparound veranda, views of the Atlantic and a long list of grappa, cordials and scotch. The restaurant’s vast wine selection is something to rave about, and this is an ideal spot to pair a glass of wine with a seductive Chocolate Zeppole. For a more modern bar with a diverse menu of sakes and wines, settle into the Cantonese lounge at Hakkasan. The dim lighting and sexy Chinois décor are a lovely backdrop to sharing a wine flight or a bottle of champagne.
The hotel also has two velvet-rope nightclubs, Arkadia and Liv where you’ll find DJs spinning, ladies dancing and — more often than not — a few celebrities. For a more low-key place to drink before sunset, head to the poolside Glow Bar. And visit to the legendary Bleau Bar in the lobby for a classic cocktail and trip back in time to the Golden Era of travel.
