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, this isn't the kind of hotel where you spend a
ton of your time in the rooms, anyway. Debauchery awaits at Skybar, the hotel's swish outdoor bar, and in the Red Room lounge. Step into the Italian restaurant, Terrazza, where you can watch local A-listers and visitors gorge on carbs.
