Thompson Miami Beach’s pool is straight out a Hollywood movie’s pool party scene – swaying palm trees, Technicolor-ed deckchairs, DJs pumping out groovy beats, and a stunning view of the Atlantic.
Don’t let the mood tempt you into sipping a Pina Colada. Mixologist Julio Cabrera shakes up some fancy mixes worth trying, like the Almond Blossom Crusta, a mix of brandy, gin, lemon juice and orgeat.
Suites have DIY cocktail menus for guests to shake up their own tipples. For dining options, chef Michelle Bernstein serves dishes like Housemade Garganelli at Seagrape, making use of ingredients specially grown by commissioned farmers for the restaurant.
