One of our more than 1,000 Twitter followers—you’re among them, right?—sent us a plea for help recently that we had to answer in more than 140 characters. Melanie N. (@chic_travel) is headed to Miami soon and asked us to find "the Miami hotel with [the] most available single (straight) men." Our Miami destination expert and Oyster’s Senior Editor Will B. has not one but two hotel choices for extended mingling with the opposite sex in South Beach.
The Shore Club, with its younger crowd and multiple bars is one terrific option. And as we’ve reported, “While the neighboring Delano and Gansevoort pools have a similar scene, both have a slightly older clientele and (perhaps as a result?) distinctly less dancing.” Waste no time by reporting directly to the Shore Club’s infinity pool on arrival, Melanie.
Another pick, says Will, is the Catalina Hotel. While it lacks the direct beach access of the Shore Club, the hotel helps fuel the party with free drinks every night from 7-8pm. That probably explains why the hotel is packed with recent grads and “randy 20-somethings who can rage until 4 am.” Sounds about right!
