Club 50, Viceroy Hotel, Miami
Far from sceney South Beach (but not too far), this stylish and dignified club occupies a perch 50 stories high in Miami’s Viceroy Hotel. The property, which opened in 2009 in the relaxed Brickell neighborhood, has interiors designed by Kelly Wearstler—and her characteristic Hollywood Regency touches are everywhere: grained marble, Japanese woodblock–inspired prints, upholstery in a bright modern palette of turquoise and yellow. But the open-air lounge’s spectacular vistas of the Intracoastal Waterway, Biscayne Bay and some truly spectacular sunsets are all Mother Nature’s doing. Green curry short ribs and coconut mojitos make for ideal sunset fare. After 11 p.m., the tranquil bar turns into a club, where celebrity DJs like Paul Oakenfold spin until the 5 a.m. closing. Cocktails from $17; viceroyhotelsandresorts.com.
