So your best bro is going from a wild bachelor to a grownup husband. There’s no better place to have your last hurrah than Miami Beach. Take care of yourself, or buddy in style with our guide to the ultimate bachelor party in Miami Beach.
WHERE TO STAY: THE WINTER HAVEN HOTEL
Our hotel is in the perfect location for your bachelor weekend. Escape from girlfriends, minivans, and embrace life on South Beach’s iconic Ocean Drive. Surrounded by Art Deco buildings and views overlooking the ocean and white-sand beaches, you and the boys will get to experience the opulent grandeur that is Miami Beach. The vintage hotel features 71 appointed guestrooms and amenities such as complimentary wifi, beach chairs, and personalized service from a friendly, multilingual staff.
WHERE TO GET DRINKS
Before heading out for a night of debauchery, pre game at our classy lobby martini bar. For a more casual vibe, grab a beer at a dive bar like Mac’s Club Deuce or Lost Weekend. If you’re into craft beers try Abbey Brewing Company.
WHERE TO EAT
Having a proper meal before a night out can make a difference between waking up in one of our comfortable plush beds, or waking up disoriented and sunburnt on the beach. Here are our recommendations for a satisfying meal:
Put on some slacks and ties for a classy dinner at Red, The Steakhouse. Featured on Esquire, Forbes, and Bizarre Foods, this is a contemporary restaurant with extensive wine list, raw bar, and delectable dishes like the Frutti Di Mare– Chef’s shellfish selections with Maine lobster and Alaskan king crab. We recommend choosing from the variety of steaks such as the miyazaki Japanese Kobe, dry aged C.A.B. prime tomahawk, Kansas City strip, porterhouse, and classics like filet mignon, ribeye, and NY strip.
This late-night burger joint is one of the oldest in SoBe. It’s so good that it managed to attract the attention of big name celebrities like Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Gabrielle Union. Not only can you find celebs here, but you’ll also find the juiciest Angus beef burger with fresh lettuce, tomatoes and crisp kosher pickles. The famous chilli cheese fries are also good with homemade chilli and warm melted cheddar cheese. It’s open until 5 AM so you can always stop by after the club.
Located near Lincoln Road, this high-end sports-bar chain has over 100 craft beers on tap, plus an extensive menu of New American dishes. We recommend one of the limited craft drafts like the Brooklyn Bel Air Sour—a tart dry-hopped kettle sour ale—paired with the Baja fish street tacos.
Burger & Beer joint is a casual South Beach outpost known for signature DIY burgers and an extensive beer list. If you wake up too late after a night out, you can still make breakfast with the Hotel California burger which includes fried egg, guacamole, jalapeno relish and cilantro sour cream on a brioche bun.
You don’t have to go very far for a delectable authentic Italian dinner. The Winter Haven Hotel’s very own Il Bolognese uses only the freshest ingredients directly from organic and local vendors like Harris Ranch Meats and Mr. Greens Produce. We recommend the ravioli funghi with black truffle butter, and Parmigiano Reggiano.
WHAT TO DO
During the day do some water activities whether it’s people watching by the pool in Nikki Beach Club, deep sea fishing with Bluefin Charters, or diving with SoBe Five & Surf Center. If you want to get a workout in while on vaca rent bike through our bike program. At night, hit the clubs of South Beach like Club Space or Mango’s to dance salsa with the ladies. For a more scandalous time visit E11even—it’s Cirque De Soleil meets a gentlemen’s club.
