Weekend Getaway: Art Basel Miami
Art Basel is one of those weekends I suggest everyone to go to. It is a perfect mix of art, music, food and of course, beautiful weather & good vibes because well, its Miami. Read on for our favorite places we visited this past weekend!
THE 1 HOTEL South Beach- Favorite Rooftop Bar / Pool
What used to be the old Gansevoort has since been converted and we are in LOVE to say the least. The rooftop pool juts out over the beach leaving you with stunning views of the ocean, perfect for afternoon and sunset. Pop in here for a boozy brunch or to relax and soak up the sun with your friends!
Jugo Fresh - Best spot for a morning green juice & vegan bowls!
Jugo Fresh has long been a favorite of mine every time I visit Miami and this time was no exception. With a variety of cold-pressed juices to choose from and some of the best acai bowls I've had (The Acai Verde is my favorite!) Plus any place that quotes Biggie across the top of their shop is a friend of mine.
Cecconis- Favorite lunch/brunch spot
Situated on the bottom floor of Soho House, Cecconis is the perfect, and not to mention beautiful, place to brunch with your friends. Not only are you sitting outside in plush couches amongst the trees but they have an awesome vegan / vegetarian / gluten free menu to choose from!
The Standard Spa - Favorite place to relax from all your relaxation
Albeit Miami should be visited to relax, its easy to get caught up in all the action especially during Art Basel, which can leave you feeling the opposite of what you intended. With that said, we turn to one of our favorites to get us on our feet again.You cannot go wrong at The Standard Spa. $30 for the mud room and a vast array of treatments to choose from, can we get a heck yes?

Baoli - Start with Dinner, End with a Party
Of course one of Miami's biggest draws is, well, it's nightlife. Im not the biggest fan of hopping around so a place that serves a great dinner and morphs into a lounge or club is right up my alley. Baoli hits on all those points, serving up delicious Japanese cuisine, amazing cocktails and a vibe that beats it all.
Up & Down x Billboard Party - Best Pop Up @ Art Basel
Every winter brands come down and host pop up parties across the city during Basel and this year was no different. Of the few we attended, our favorite was the Up&Down NYC x Billboard party at the Nautilus Hotel. Situated in a massive tent out on the beach, the party hosted hundreds of people, surprise artist performances & amazing music. Plus the hotel itself was gorgeous! We can't wait to check it out again next year.
