Best Poolside Hotel Bar Miami 2009 - The Viceroy

The Viceroy

The Viceroy

485 Brickell Ave.

Miami, FL 33131


Map & Details>>

The Viceroy wants to make sure you never have a cocktail near or below sea level again. As part of the ten-acre Icon Brickell compound and one of the newest (and most fab) buildings to spring up on the Miami skyline, this place is chic defined. The 15th-floor pool deck is outfitted with a life-size chess game, scores of cabanas, and the most breathtaking feature of all — the magnificent view of Biscayne Bay and the surrounding areas. Since no dip in the pool is complete without a cocktail, Café Icon has more brews, grapes, and elixirs than you've ever imagined. With decidedly un-Brickell drink prices — only $12 for a mojito or bloody mary — you can spend an entire afternoon tanning and bellying up to the bar. Oh, and this casual eatery offers healthful Mediterranean food poolside to soak up all of that tequila in your tummy.

Just watch out for their shady tipping technique. I've gone twice to the Viceroy, once for brunch at the restaurant, and the other for a happy hour. Both times the server has gone out of his and her way for me not to see the original bill where the automatic 18% charge is tacked on so as to trick me into giving additional tip.


I've just visited it, can see from here the interesting-looking huge Starck design's Icon building and the Viceroy it's maybe a good luxury hotel, but I've never seen before a more horrible un-harmonic Interior Design in my entire globe-trotting design-oriented life. Good job Kelly Wearstler!-O
