Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Nikki Beach Miami (1 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach) is the flagship for a global enterprise that boasts outposts in exotic and far-flung locales such as Koh Samui, Qatar, Cannes, and Cyprus.

The South Beach branch started it all in 1998, and the father-and-son Penrod team has kept it alive and made it a force in world sexy-beach culture.

Recent renovations to Nikki Beach Miami include an updated interior, greater emphasis on dining, and a redone club.

Executive chef Gerry Gnassi has implemented a globally inspired menu that includes wood-oven pizza, sushi, and seafood such as the giant prawns pictured above as well as "local red snapper" -- which we don't know where they're getting because the U.S. government banned fishing for the species in federal waters in late 2009.

Take a look at Nikki Beach Miami.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
