• Grab cocktails in an ultramodern space with the best views of South Beach
  • Latin-Asian inspired aperitifs atop a terrace that does not disappoint
  • Down-home dining where chicken and waffles are re-imagined

Fancy a little architecture with your cocktail? Then make your way to Juvia—the “Latin-Asian” hotspot dishing up an impressive array of ceviches and grilled meats. True, the food is delicious, but the real attraction here is Juvia’s setting and its best-in-town views. Set atop the 1111 Lincoln Road complex—the genre-redefining parking garage by Swiss architecture icons Herzog & de Meuron—Juvia offers pristine panoramas of South Beach’s Art Deco wonders and the shimmering Atlantic beyond. Arrive just before sunset to snag a coveted terrace banquette and be sure to order the signature Purple Rain (Grey Goose vodka mixed with the traditional purple Peruvian corn beverage known as chicha morada). Afterwards, order an Uber and head for dinner at the nearby “new Southern” restaurant Yardbird, for the must-try chicken and waffles with watermelon. With its new take on down-home cuisine, Yardbird is another world—one that’s a mere 10-minute drive away.

In Miami Beach, you can find Juvia on the west side of Lincoln Road, right where it intersects with Lenox Avenue. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the parking complex. Then, head to nearby Yardbird, which is just one block south on the corner of Lenox and 16th Street.
