15 South Beach Hot Spots for Date Night

15 South Beach Hot Spots for Date Night

South beach might be party central, but it’s also the perfect place to stroll hand in hand with your significant other. Here’s a guide to a lovely, relaxed evening of entertainment, upscale dining, and picturesque walks under the warm Miami sun.

15. Doraku

If you find yourself on the Alton side of Lincoln Road, which is recognized as the popular shopping district in South Beach, stop in for cocktails and dinner at Doraku, a hip sushi restaurant where beautiful locals blow off steam after work. It’s also known for its rockin’ happy hours. Try the lychee martini to beat the heat and calm the nerves and then the tempura battered rock shrimp that’s so good it’s like dessert. Afterwards, take a stroll down Lincoln and talk about horoscopes while window shopping and discussing wedding china. It looks like true love- South Beach style.

14. Books and Books

Further down Lincoln Road is Books and Books at 927, a casual patio bistro where you can enjoy a light salad with seared tuna or fried coconut shrimp. It’s also a chance to show off your smart side as you peruse their indie collection of limited edition art books, fiction, and travel section. Be sure to check out the Miami section with local art books and travel guides on art deco, history, and trendy hotspots. For the more picture and design oriented reader, they have a healthy collection of periodicals and European magazines on the patio.
