Sturday, July 2, 7pm – High Bar, 1111 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach
Weâ€™ve got nothing against the hotel lobby lounge. Itâ€™s a damn fine institution. The flowing white curtains. The Deco charm. The starlets dodging paparazzi.
But sometimes you want to abandon the polished terrazzo for something a little more alfresco. Preferably four floors above the Collins Avenue fray.
Introducing High Bar, your new spot for rooftop cocktailing and pool-dipping under the bare sky, opening this Saturday at the Dream South Beach.
High Bar is one of those places that lets you look upon the sultry chaos of South Beach and remember why you chose to call this bikini-covered wonderland home.
With a date in tow, youâ€™ll enter through the Tudor House lobby and take the elevator to the fourth floor. Stepping out into a gold-mirrored vestibule, youâ€™ll find yourself in what feels like a tanning oil ad from the â€™70s: circular, white wicker couches, a gold-tiled, glass-enclosed bar and a modestly sized three-foot-deep infinity pool.
During the day, the rooftop is only available to hotel guests. But come 7pm, youâ€™re welcome to settle in amongst the teak rocking chairs and summon rounds of The Heat (tequila, cucumber and spicy sambal) and snacks from Tudor House like Chilled Octopus with olive preserves.
High altitude does wonders for octopus.
