As you’d expect from the spot where James Bond took on Goldfinger in a game of gin rummy, Bleau Bar is seriously glamorous and a favourite with visiting celebrities. Modernised several times since its 1950s heyday, it does excellent cocktails including Bond’s favourite vodka martini, shaken not stirred.
New York might be the City That Never Sleeps, but Miami runs it a very close second. The city offers a panoply of choice ranging from sleepy beach bars to thumping nightclubs. Although no part of the city is without distractions, the main scene is around South Beach where neon-lit, art deco buildings provide a suitable backdrop to hedonistic crowds.
Bars close around 0100 and nightclubs around 0600. The minimum age for admission to all clubs in Miami Beach (including South Beach) is 21 years - the minimum drinking age in Florida. It is advisable to carry ID and dress codes often require chic attire.
