The DiLido Beach Club

1 Lincoln Road Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 786-276-4000

Location Description:

With all the oceanfront venues in SoBe, it's surprising that the Ritz-Carlton's DiLido Beach Club is one of a stingy handful of restaurant/lounges that allows guests open access to and from the beach. Named after the original building the Ritz Carlton now inhabits, The DiLido is open to the public and offers a Mediterranean-inspired menu from noon to sunset. Notable mezes are prosciutto wraps ($9), fava sliders ($9), and chickpea falafel ($8). For a bigger appetite, try Florida snapper ($18), the DiLido burger ($16), and signature kebabs. More exotic selections include lobster curry ($12), preserved lemon shrimp ($17), and haloumi vegetables ($14). From October through April, the club hosts monthly Full Moon Nights, featuring fire dancers, complimentary flavored hookahs, high-tech telescopes, DJs spinning world lounge music, $10 tropical cocktails and "lite bites," and $5 beers from 8 to midnight, all with no velvet ropes or cover charges attached.
