Night Club

“Set in Miami Beach's hipster-cool, art deco Freehand Hostel, this small, romantic bar boasts an alter-ego backyard that's massive, offbeat and well equipped with a pool, Ping-Pong table and mismatched furniture. And the bartenders take their drinks seriously too, mixing handcrafted cocktails with handmade infusions and syrups created with herbs found in the property's own private garden.”

Garden
“The Miami Beach Botanical Garden is a 2.6 acres urban green space in Miami Beach, Florida founded in 1962. It was transformed in 2011 with a $1.2 million landscape renovation designed by South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles. The new landscape showcases native Florida plants and trees including bromeliads, palms, cycad, orchids and many others. There is a Japanese garden, native garden and bio-swale, and water gardens including ponds, fountains, and a wetland with mangrove and pond apple trees. The renovation also expanded the Great Lawn area for corporate and social events, established a plant nursery and event plaza, and enhanced the night-time lights, entrance gate, and pathways.”
