In terms of lounging, people-watching, partying, and poolside glitz, the Shore Club still ranks among the ultimate South Beach adult playgrounds; guests generally hang out in the minimalist lobby or by one of the two stylish pools, where a peek behind the cascading white curtains or palm trees can yield a celebrity, a scandal, or a make-out session. Given all the colorful hoopla, the guest rooms are suprisingly stark—but in a statement-making kind of way. Debauchery awaits at Skybar, an enclave of intoxicating entertainment that includes the hotel's swish outdoor bar and the Red Room lounge. Step into the Italian restaurant, Terrazza, where you can watch local glitterati and visitors gorge on carbs.
