Everything you need to know about visiting Nikki Beach (1 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach FL 33139).
Nikki Beach is the quintessential beach club, an outdoor fantasyland sprawling over a stretch of sand with tiki bars, lounge chairs and torches. Decorated with beautiful people, it’s like the Playboy mansion meets Survivor, where the fittest don’t merely survive, they flourish. Buxom beauties attract well-oiled, deep-pocketed sugar daddies, and the studs also get rewarded for their packaging. In addition to the restaurant and beach club, there’s a club and lounge for when the party moves inside.
When to go
Sunday belongs to Nikki Beach. Its weekly party, known as “Amazing Sundays,” starts with brunch at 11am and goes till 3am. Kudos if you can make it that long. But if you can only hang for a few hours, we recommend catching the tail end of brunch and then lounging around on the sand. Maybe a quick dip in the ocean before you call it a day?
Speaking of brunch, it’s not to be missed. Nikki Beach does a buffet-style spread. There’s an omelet station, a waffle station, bacon, sausage, fresh fish, French toast, freshly carved prime rib, sushi, shrimp, paella, a salmon station, cheese, dessert and don’t you dare forget about the mimosas.
What to wear
Nikki Beach is literally on the beach—like, on the sand. So beach attire is totally acceptable. But it’s still an upscale place. So think beach-chic rather than family vacation to Naples. If you happen to be from a place where beach-chic does not exist, just scroll through some photos on Nikki Beach’s Facebook page to get a feel for the attire.
