South Beach / South Pointe
Nikki Beach is a Miami institution. And between the sand, the white cushion lounge chairs and the bikinis, this place has nearly every element you word-associate with “Miami.” (Okay, so we can’t guarantee D-Wade or Lebron will be there). Definitely a place to see-and-be-seen, Nikki Beach attracts some of the better-looking ladies in the whole area code -- and the food ain’t half bad either (in case you care). A lot of world-renowned DJs with German-sounding names make it a point to stop here, so make sure to check the website before going: you may be lucky/unfortunate enough to catch Deter pouting through a blazing house set. Hey, at least the girls are into it.
Get there early, eat, and try not to be noticed as the place shifts into nightclub mode and the doorman outside gets selective.
The Good:This is one of the hottest night spots in one of the hottest night spot towns. The talent doesn’t disappoint.
The Bad:Nikki’s likes to turn people away; I guess it makes them feel special. But seriously, we know they mean well (read: keep the unstoppably-fine-girl-to-group-of-guys ratio in balance) so a massive bachelor party may have trouble getting in. Plan accordingly.
