Ah, Miami. The Magic City. If there is a better place to be on the planet than we haven’t heard of it. At The Advantaged we truly love our city. Not only that, we love showcasing all of its wonders to everyone who visits. From the blue, sunny skies to the unmissed beaches, this is a place that dreams are made of. But the fun here isn’t limited to the daytime. Once the sun goes down, Miami comes alive! If you are planning to visit, or if you are a life-long Floridian looking to explore your backyard just a little bit more, we want to help you make the most of your journey. Here are a few of our favorite beautiful Miami restaurant choices for late-night hangouts. Even better? ALL of these amazing restaurants can be reached by boat!
If you are looking for a special night out in Miami, look no further than Zuma. Located in the Epic Hotel in heart of downtown, and boasting sensational views overlooking the Miami River, Zuma boasts exceptional Japanese cuisine in a chic, contemporary, and sexy environment. A popular haunt for local celebrities, the only way to describe Zuma’s modern takes on phenomenal Japanese classics is “edible art”. Even better, settling in on the restaurant’s riverside terrace is the perfect way to enjoy an unforgettable Miami evening.
Kiki on the River
You may not associate great Greek food with Miami, but after dining at Kiki on the River, you may just change your mind. Featuring an ambitious menu of authentic Greek classics, Kiki on the River is an equal parts restaurant and nightclub; making it the perfect spot for a memorable night out in the Magic City. The brainchild of Roman Jones (the Miami club king and founder of South Beach’s luxurious Opium Group), Kiki on the River is quite literally on the river. What better way to spend an evening than by settling into one of Kiki’s dockside tables. And, watching the lights of the city shimmer on the warm South Florida waters?
Seaspice and Modern Garden
If you haven’t noticed, waterfront dining is the epitome of sophistication and elegance in the Magic City. And few spots in South Florida capture this sense of elegance more than Seaspice and Modern Garden. Featuring a menu that oozes sophistication, Seaspice is a blend of equal parts seafood brasserie, elegant lounge, and trendy events space. With wood-fired favorites and an impeccable raw bar- including irresistible coconut salmon ceviche – Seaspice is the perfect spot to chill out on a warm Miami evening. All the while taking in the sites and sounds of the city while sipping a perfectly mixed cocktail.
When it comes to Miami nightlife, Brickell is truly one of the city’s greatest hangout spots. And no place captures the excitement and trendiness of Brickell better than American Social. New arrival on the Miami scene, American Social (or AMSO as it’s also known) is the offshoot of the original location. It is situated on Fort Lauderdale’s trendy Los Olas Boulevard. AMSO prides itself on offering an upscale-yet-casual dining experience. In addition to featuring an inviting mix of sports bar meets gastropub cuisine – perfect for sharing with friends. But AMSO is far more than just an Americana-themed eatery. It’s a great place to meet friends and enjoy some stylish (and delicious) cocktails, and take in an exciting event. Or, just watch the boats and the world coast by under the warm Miami night skies.
Casablanca on the Bay
Located on the second floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Hotel, Casablanca on the Bay offers diners mesmerizing views overlooking Biscayne Bay. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a casual yacht club ambiance with a distinctly Latin flair, Casablanca on the Bay has a sumptuous menu of tantalizing seafood dishes which are sure to be a hit with diners. Sitting on the terrace, enjoying a sophisticated and delicious cocktail and taking in the views overlooking the bay – with the seas breeze rustling through your hair – can life get any better than this?
Garcia’s Seafood Market and Grill
Garcia’s, located on the water in the heart of Downtown, is quintessentially a Miami restaurant in every way imaginable. The creation of the Garcia brothers (Cuban expats who fled the Castro regime in the 1960s), Garcia’s Seafood Market and Grill is the result of hard work, determination, and eye for only the finest, freshest ingredients. The results are sublime: light and fresh seafood Caesar salad to die for; succulent and tender mussels in a decadent Creole sauce; and a lobster ravioli that simply can’t be missed! Combine that with an unbeatable location on the Miami Riverfront, and world-class service. You have the recipe for an unforgettable evening out in Miami! But don’t just take our word for it. Check out what famed chef and travel writer Anthony Bourdain had to say when he visited Garcia’s during the filming of his hit show “The Layover”.
