A cool Mid-Beach hotel on Collins Avenue just a block from the beach – includes breakfast and a bottle of champagne

Red South Beach Hotel, which is actually slightly farther north on Collins Avenue, in the mega-trendy Mid-Beach neighborhood, describes itself as "unique by design" and lives up to the promise. The elegant boutique hotel is all whites, metallics and pops of the namesake hue, in roomy, neo-Baroque chesterfields and chaises – it’s eclectic, very hip and very Miami.

Even more so is Barok, which is all about the grilled fish, Caprese salads and fruity cocktails. The restaurant is set in the lobby and next to the pool, which is itself lined by perfectly setting-appropriate sun loungers and umbrellas. But you can’t out-Miami the city itself; bathed in sun by day and neon by night, it’s a vibrant hodgepodge of nightspots, restaurants, shops and beaches – a veritable rainbow of culture and color.

We like

In Mid-Beach, things are a little quieter than nearby South Beach, but make no mistake – this is one of the coolest Miami neighborhoods right now. Nearby are fabulous eats and drinks, like cocktails at the James Beard Award-nominated bar at The Freehand and Sunday brunch at SoHo Beach House’s Cecconi’s.

For swimming and sunbathing, the Atlantic is just one block over, and buzzing South Beach, with its famous Lincoln Road Mall, is within walking distance of the hotel.
