40 Island Ave
Miami Beach / Belle Isle Park
The only thing more stylish than the lobby bar at a Standard Hotel, is the pool at the Miami location. Infinity coolness with an ocean view. Oh, and there’s always the jacuzzi waterfall if you feel like warming up (cold tub also available). The Standard’s Miami branch is located on Belle Isle, a private residential island, and connected via bridge to South Beach, a half-mile from the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall and a mile from the ocean. If the Bachelor wants to unwind before getting down to some serious drinking, there’s also a full spa with Turkish-style baths, aroma steam room, and a cedar sauna. There are allegedly yoga classes, too, but how would you explain that to the boys back home?
If your bachelor party is a 3-day-weekend affair, we suggest heading here for Sunday night raunchy bingo. There’s a good mix of locals and tourists, and a chance to win a free massage.
The Good:Girls in bikinis. At night.
The Bad:The pool here is on the classy/mellow side, so don’t expect Rehab. If you’re looking for thumping bass, you’re gonna want to get off this island.
