The sky is the lat­est fron­tier for Mi­ami’s cool crowd – who sip cock­tails atop EAST, Mi­ami, a lux­ury ho­tel in the Brick­ell dis­trict. The 40th-floor rooftop bar has spec­tac­u­lar views of the ocean, which pair with equally spec­tac­u­lar ly­chee mar­ti­nis.

Down­town Mi­ami is un­der­go­ing a lux­ury rev­o­lu­tion. Brick­ell City Cen­tre shop­ping com­plex is the lat­est in high-end glam­our, and is just a few stops on the city’s free mono­rail from Amer­i­can Air­lines Arena and the Bay­side precinct.

MOD­EST

No visit to Mi­ami is com­plete with­out a stroll along the Art Deco prom­e­nade at South Beach. The area has the big­gest con­cen­tra­tion of ’20s and ’30s ar­chi­tec­ture in the world, lov­ingly and colour­fully re­stored to feel like a trip back in time.
