eyeSure. There are plenty of swank places on South Beach, but how many of them let you look at the sunset on one side and the ocean on the other, all while lounging like a pasha and drinking like a fish? Just one, my friends, just one. Very few people know that this hidden gem is actually open to the public. All you need to do is walk in the Dorsett lobby and catch the elevator to the top, and you too can be sipping something cool and frothy while getting a great view of the SoBe neon extravaganza. Although there’s no food service per se to cut your buzz, you can order ahead and bring some takeout along. Replete with spa style cushions, cabana goodness, and a charming postage-stamp sized pool, (no diving, please), this is a great place to lie around and cloud watch, or wet your whistle before heading out to dance or grab a dinner. Although the drinks are definitely SoBe expensive, the celestial décor makes it worth the splurge.
