Here you'll find the hottest bartenders and scores of international hipsters. My advice? Wear black, act posh and do not forget your wallet. Few places warrant spending more than $ 10 on a cocktail; chic Rose Bar at the Delano is one place where the ambiance makes the expense worthwhile.

Tourists and natives alike upstairs lounge on the deck and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Belly up to the bar and order the famous Attitude Improvement or Call a Cab (tm), but beware - many of these tasty drinks are made with 153-grain alcohol and deceptively strong. But hey, if you're on vacation and in need of an attitude improvement, Wet Willies is the perfect place to get the party started.

South Beach's glittery scene is not customized for families. But the warm Cuban hospitality and downright friendly prices at Puerto Sagua (one block from the beach) make this colorful place popular with visiting families alike and location.
