Vaycay in Miami

Gents,

A friend and I are in the planning stages of an EPIC trip to Miami in the spring of 2013 . Since neither of us have been to Miami, we will require some recommendations on where to go! This is where you can help...

Post your favorite spots in Miami/South Beach area.

Bars/Lounges/Clubs/Restaurants/Things to do...etc

*We're staying for about a week*
*Please note if it is better to go on a Thursday vs Friday, etc.*
*No techno*

Thanks!

No house music? What kind of music do you like?

There are a ton of bars and restaurants to go to.

Restaurants:
Red
Prime 112
Prime Italian
Capital Grille
Gotham Steak
Houston's (Hillstone)

These are just off the top of my head.

A hot spot on the beach is the Fountainbleau. You should try staying there.

Restaurants:

Texas De Brazil or Fogo De Chao (not for vegans though )

I'd recommend renting a boat and crusing on the intercostal.
Should be quite a scenery change for someone coming from Germany

Also, take a day and drive down to the keys.
The road is breathtaking

Thanks for the info! That Fountainbleau spot looks like a winner...

About the choice in music...We can work with Salsa, (Chill out lounge type music), Mild Hip Hop, Live music, Or a spot that plays a variety of music.

Great idea with the boat. I'll have to check it out!

Definitely going to hit that Texas De Brazil spot. If it's anything like the restaurant that I went to during my trip to Rio, it will be amazing. Definitely will be a change of scenery when compared to Germany but I'm really from CA! I'm here for a few years for work, I live a couple hours away from the Nurburgring!

Cool.
Both of those restaurants are Brazilian steak houses that are a few blocks away from each other in south beach
Fogo De Chao is actually a brazilian chain and has a few branches in Sao Paulo, Rio etc.

the view of the ocean with all the shades of blue and turquoise is beautiful.
First time I drove down there I could barely focus on the road.
I guess you get used to it with time, but for the first time you see it it looks like paradise

It will be done.

We're both in our early 30's.

Someone already mentioned Red - it's one of the best steakhouses anywhere. Not cheap, though

Just checked out a couple of pics from their website. Yes, I think we'll do well there @ Space.

Steak is on the menu. We're on vacation, we can splurge a little.

I think I'll be going to Tootsies tonight, thanks to repoman's pic

I don't think you will care too much for club Space; the only time I went it was a trance-fest...
