The stunning Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, designed by Argentine architect Cesar Pelli, is home to the exciting Miami City Ballet, Florida Grand Opera and New World Symphony. Before the performance, get a bite to eat at Sugarcane in Wynwood or at The River Seafood & Oyster Bar, just a few short blocks from the Hotel.
For a taste of old Havana, Miami-style, sample a little Calle Ocho and Miami’s Cuban exile community. Have a traditional palomilla (steak) at Versailles, the legendary restaurant, modelled on the Havana original, with its ornate etched glass and small, power-packing cups of Cuban-style espresso.
Discover your own tropical island at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, a gorgeous, palm-fringed beach at the far end of Key Biscayne. Follow a late afternoon swim or bike ride—see the Concierge to arrange one—with a rum drink and a casual meal at the Lighthouse Café, next to the Cape Florida Lighthouse, Florida’s oldest surviving building. The setting could not be better.
Ever-trendy Miami Beach is famous for its after-hours fun in clubs like Set and Live, but check with the Concierge at Four Seasons for what’s-hot/what’s-not when you are in town. When in Miami do like the Miamians do and head to the clubs to rub shoulders with celebrities like Bono and Mick Jagger, and dance to the most vibrant new beats. DJs from around the world will perform the hottest trends in music and will have you dancing until the wee hours. Up early in the morning? Head to David’s Café on Collins Avenue. After a fresh mango juice and café cubano y tostada you will be ready to hit the gorgeous beach and enjoy the sunshine.
