Where to go?

Key Biscayne is a tropical paradise, both visitor and residential friendly. This serene neighborhood just over the bridge from the busiest parts of Miami is island living at its best. What would island living be without endless options for ways to spend time on the water? Spend a warm, breezy day outside on the waters of Biscayne Bay aboard a catamaran, sail boat, or luxury yacht. Go kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding, or explore the underwater world with a snorkel, mask and fins.

Keep your eyes open for dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles and manatees, starfish and more.By boat enjoy Key Biscayne Sandbar, Nixon’s Cove, Mashta Flats, Cape Florida Lighthouse, a paradise for water lovers

Miami is Not Just a Party City

MiamiOnly party in Miami?! Miami is Not Just a Party City.

Miami is eclectic, eccentric, energetic, and has a little something for everyone. Personally, I’m a lover of opera, and this wonderful city has plenty to offer. The main opera house in Miami is, undoubtedly, the Adrienne Arsht Center located just across MacArthur Causeway, home to the most prestigious international performers. However, I have special appreciation to those shown at the Colony Theatre, in South Beach.

The Colony Theatre offers guests affordable prices. While visiting the Colony, you can enjoy the romantic atmosphere that the years have given to this historic landmark. It’s an Art Deco building dating back to 1936, it has since been remodeled to modernize its acoustics and stage, and all while preserving the historic decor. At show-time, you can choose from opera, jazz, tango, cinema festival at

The Colony.

At first, the Colony was built as a cinema, but was later converted to a live theatre. It was built only a decade after 927 Jefferson Suites. Surely, the family who owned 927 Jefferson Suites enjoyed this beautiful theatre, since it’s only seven blocks away, just a 10 minute walk away.

I highly recommend taking a walk down Lincoln Road. It’s something you must do when visiting South Beach. Lincoln Road Mall is an outdoor shopping mall with high-end store, restaurants, bars, and of course, the Colony Theatre.

After the watching a wonderful performance at The Colony, you could walk right across the street and have a delicious dinner at Juvia, where you can experience one of the best views of Miami Beach

After dinner, and perhaps a cocktail or two, you can enjoy a relaxing walk back to

927 Jefferson Suites to enjoy a quiet and relaxing night’s rest.

MIAMI BOAT-UP RESTAURANTS

 MIAMI BOAT-UP RESTAURANTS

There’s nothing quite as Miami as spending an entire day making pictures of yourself on a boat. But taking all those selfies works up a powerful hunger, so as your day on the water progresses, we’ll take you from the Miami River up to the North and tell you the best restaurants to tie up and tie one on.

BOAST GRILL

Great views and fabulous food in Key Biscayne paradise, you can see some famous people like Juanes or Andy García there

GARCIA’S SEAFOOD GRILL AND MARKET

It’s amazing how for 50 years, this place managed to serve possibly the best, freshest seafood in Miami, cold beers, and a stunning view of the Miami River and never refused service to anyone because they weren’t wearing designer sunglasses. Perhaps the next-door neighbors could take a lesson. Garcia’s still managed to serve the freshest seafood in Miami, with its fresh-off-the boat specialties plated with a breathtaking view of… corpses and boats full of mattresses. But now the river — and the surrounding neighborhood — has cleaned up so you can enjoy what’s STILL the freshest seafood in Miami.

CASABLANCA SEAFOOD BAR AND GRILL

Though not the institution that its next-door neighbor Garcia’s is, the seafood at Casablanca is every bit as good, and the menu even a little more upscale with items like its signature crab-stuffed lobster and a raw bar with an impressive collection of ceviches and tiraditos. They’ve also got a seafood market inside, if you feel like grabbing something to take back on the boat with you.

ZUMA

If you’re the one who actually OWNS the boat — or one of the girls tagging along — this is THE boat-up go-to for Sunday brunch. If not? Well the $125 price tag that comes with Zuma’s legendary boozy brunch might be a little out of your… oh wait, never mind. It’s Miami.

LIDO RESTAURANT AT STANDARD

While Miami Beach is severely lacking when it comes to boat-up dining, the saving grace is this restaurant at The Standard, where you’ll get some of the best fries in the city, which you can wash down with half-priced drinks from 4-7pm daily. And if a day in a bathing suit makes you hungry for something other than grease and alcohol, its menu of spa cuisine is also among Miami’s best.

DUFFY’S SPORTS GRILL

Remember when your mom used to tell you to stay out of the pool for, like, a week after you ate? That’s especially important advice to heed here, where you’ll be stuffed with the best bar menu in South Florida, then given 2-for-1-drinks all day, every day. Both are things that don’t mix well with a swimming pool, which its also got on the patio along with more flat screens than you can possibly watch.

LIQUE

If burgers that come with an instant side of Lipitor aren’t exactly what you’re craving after a long day on the water, right next to Duffy’s is this spot, which serves a Mediterranean-inspired menu with lighter fare like the truffle tuna roll and the whole grilled branzino. And while smoking a stogie on your boat is never a bad idea, they’ve also got an adjacent hookah and cigar lounge for after dinner.

BIMINI BOAT YARD BAR AND GRILL

Just don’t confuse it with the Bimini Bay CLUB, because that’s a dive bar that shows pornos on the TV, and even worse has nowhere to tie up your boat. This place, however, is the best restaurant on a canal in one of the world’s best canal cities, where you can get fresh seafood and steaks, right before the 17th St Bridge.

BOKAMPERS SPORTS BAR

There’s really nothing worse than being four hours into your boating day, drifting all the way up to Oakland Park, and suddenly realizing, “Oh crap! I’m missing the World Logrolling Championships on Spike!” But don’t worry! Bokampers has you covered with 350ft of dock space, 150 flat screens, and even a full sushi bar to keep you energized so you can watch those high-intensity log rolls.

THE RUSTY HOOK TAVERN

Hands down the best new waterfront restaurant to open in Broward in the past year, here an all-star team of chefs made up of Nader “Ned” Jaouhar, Kareem Lakchira, and Andy Patton have created the most surprisingly tasty menu you’ll find on the Intercoastal. Anywhere. Like it might be the only time in your life you say, “It’s worth going to Pompano.” Try the Moroccan meatballs, then move on the greatest use of snack food you’ll ever see — the Cheetos-crusted catch of the day.

Great opportunity, Flamingo Lux, $750/week, it will never happen again

Unique bright One Bedroom 1000 sf apartment with Spectacular Bay Views, , well equipped and wonderfully located, it offers anything that you want. Come and begin each day enjoying a multicolored sunrise and end it with majestic sunset.

Enjoy spectacular views of South Beach, Downtown Miami, the Atlantic Ocean and dolphins and manatees in Biscayne Bay. You will relax in the infinite swimming pool, or if you prefer soak in two Jacuzzis. This complex has got covered 24h valet parking, on site convenient café and store, dry cleaners and day spa.

It is within walking distance of the Lincoln Road Mall, where you will find a variety of shopping and dining opportunities, 10 minutes from Downtown Miami and Coconut Grove and 12 miles from Miami International Airport.

Miami Beach: A Look Back at the Past 100 Years

Miami Beach: A Look Back at the Past 100 Years.

It grew out of a vacant lot, and in the 1920s, it became a vacation destination. In the ‘80s, crime and drug trafficking brought difficult time to Miami Beach, but after being immortalized by the TV series Miami Vice, it was reborn as a city of global reverence.

Miami Beach, the resort city located along the white sandy coast of South Florida, celebrated its 100th anniversary this past week.

Associated with palm trees and elegant hotels, Miami Beach is part of the metropolitan area that makes up Miami-Dade County, which some call the “gateway” to Latin America. Miami Beach’s most famous avenue, Ocean Drive, is the epicenter of the city’s nightlife.

In the 1920s, the resorts experienced their first period of splendor. Miami Beach was home to five world renowned casinos. 927 Jefferson Suites was one of the first buildings constructed in the area. The Mediterranean inspired property was built in 1924, and has withstood the test of time. 1929 brought along the Great Depression, causing turmoil for the entire nation, but 927 Jefferson Suites continued hosting prominent guests from the art world. Miami Beach managed to escape the Depression with minimal impact, thus sparking the golden age of Art Deco architecture that Miami Beach has now become famous for. The 1960s brought another construction boom to the City of Miami Beach, commencing the decade with the most iconic hotel on the beach, The Fontainebleau.

The ‘80s brought a downfall to Miami Beach, mostly caused by drug trafficking, crime, and corruption. Miami Beach was able to bounce back with the aid of Latin American immigrants who now call Miami Beach their home. The City of Miami Beach is once again a sought after tourist destination, which prides itself on diversity and cultural growth.
