South Beach, or more commonly known as SoBe, is a lively neighborhood filled with some of the best nightlife in Miami Beach. If you’re looking to live a few steps from the party this neighborhood is for you. Settled between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean there are plenty of spots to catch a tan and cool down with a chilled, fruity cocktail.
Beginning in the early 1900s South Beach was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed, due to the efforts of Carl G. Fisher, the Lummus Brothers, and John S. Collins, the latter of whose construction of the Collins Bridge provided the first vital land link between mainland Miami and the beaches.
The area has changed significantly since its original development. There’s been significant increase in tourism and South Beach is certainly on the list of “must-sees” for anyone traveling to Miami as people enjoy visiting the fine white sand beaches, seeing the colorful Art Deco buildings and walking down bustling Ocean Drive filled with culinary hot spots and eclectic boutiques.
A popular Miami eatery, Joe’s Stone Crab, is known for its renowned stone crabs and family friendly vibe. You may have to wait in line to catch a table, but it’s time well spent as you won’t find food like this anywhere else in the city.
You can find everything you need for your trip to Miami from the shops on Lincoln Road. Visit Runway Swimwear for the latest beach fashions or grab a new pair of heels from Steve Madden for evening out in SoBe. Be sure to stop by Alchemist for a luxury shopping experience all on its own. This retail concept brings together the cultural world of fashion, design, art and architecture. Their unique and exclusive products will leave you feeling decadent.
There’s no shortage of upscale hotels in South Beach. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or a couple weeks of vacation you have a great selection from the Faena Hotel where you will enjoy being pampered at their Tierra Santa Healing House, the welcoming service and refined luxury at the SLS South Beach to the charming Art Deco styling at the Betsy Hotel.
The hype of the South Beach nightlife promises endless entertainment and delivers just that. Go to dinner and a cabaret show at Mango’s Tropical Cafe, enjoy bottle service at the exclusive VIP tables of the STORY Nightclub, and be sure to stop by Nikki Beach for the ultimate fruity cocktails and fun in the sun.
