Traveling to Miami the end of September with some friends for a few days and to take in the Indy race at Homestead. Staying in a condo on Miami Beach (vrbo.com rocks) and while we have several suggestions for restaurants and such, looking for any special spots for good wine, food, sights, etc...

Vino Bevo, it depends a lot on what your "scene" is and how much free time you have.

River Oyster Bar is a favorite of mine, and the block that it's located on is pretty solid. it includes tobacco road (oldest bar in miami) which has live music and a cool scene on the weekends, and is about a block from transit lounge. which also has live music and other fun stuff going on during the weekend.

if you're looking for something more "Miami", I would suggest Mary Brickell Village. It's pretty much where are the local, typical "Miamians" go and it's in Brickell which is just South of downtown and one causeway-ride away from the beach. Mary Brickell Village has tons of bars, lounges, and restaurants and plenty of gorgeous people. when your trip nears, just bump this post and i can give you specifics as to what's good.

as for "good wine", we don't have much to be honest. there are some wine bars, but they're kinda lame. i do all of my wine drinking at LWS tastings. again, as the day nears, let me know and i'll look into anything that might be worthwhile.

as far as going out in Miami Beach is concerned, you need to be very selective as it's changed a lot over the past 3 years. most "clubs" are either tourist traps, or very.... urban. there are a few that are still good and outright amazing, but it's not like it was 6 years ago when you could just walk down Washington Ave and just pick a place (Mynt and Rokbar still absolutely rock).

anyway, a lot of this depends on your personal taste. there's a lot to do here, and a lot to avoid. what are your interests? what else do you like to do?

you can email me if you prefer, jorge at artisanmg dot com

Looks like I'm stuck here until Friday, more food recommendations welcomed.

go to Ceviche 105 (clicky), you won't regret it and it's walking distance (about 3 blocks from your hotel). also, if you have access to transportation you should try Sugarcane or mercadito in midtown (about a 10 min drive). sugarcane is amazing, but hard to get into, mercadito should have tables open. a bit closer (but also a cab ride away) is bin no. 18, which is a wine / craft beer / really creative tapas place.

right on the other side of the bridge from where you're staying is brickell. Pieducks makes really good brick-oven pizza, and the bar next to it (Brickell Irish Pub) makes a mean burger and french fries. you also have Mary Brickell Village there, which has a whole host of restaurants and bars.

there's also a capital grill right over the bridge, in case you want something "fancy".

email me if you want, jorge at artisanmg dot com. i live in brickell, so you're staying in the neighborhood i'm most familiar with.
