Hotel Review: Shore Club

One thing that makes the city of South Beach unique is its style, the Art Deco architecture is so distinctive that when you see anything constructed in this style after you’ve visited the city you are automatically drawn back into your memories to South Beach. The Shore Club is one of the buildings that stands out for its incredibly beautiful art deco style. British architect David Chipperfield designed the hotel and its lobby is a noted depiction of this design aesthetic. The lobby also serves as a transition between the labyrinth of gardens, secret passageways, alcoves and the outdoor rooms. The Shore Club is a treat to the senses and immerses you in the best aspects of the city, on top of that it’s located in the midst of one of the hippest cities bursting with trendsetters and celebrities.

Attractions at Shore Club

The main attractions at W South Beach are basically the same as they are for every hotel in the Miami area, the beach and the South Beach scene. Miami’s Beaches are each a little bit different and draw a different crowd, learn a bit about the beaches before you decide to spend a day at one. But there are plenty of amenities and attractions at the Shore Club to keep you on the property. The obvious attraction at the Shore Club are the beautiful meandering gardens that offer a cooling respite from a sunny, hot Miami day. And the gardens conveniently lead to the pool or the beach. The pool at the Shore Club does allow topless sunbathing.  There are two elevated infinity edge pools and a hot tub and they’re all surrounded by custom tufted beds, hand painted pillows and throws. The pools lie conveniently between the hotel and the beach, inviting guests to hit both depending upon their water whims. Near the pools and the beach are two bars, Sandbar and Rumbar, both fully stocked to give you just what you’re craving. If you’d like something a little more active than sitting around the water’s edge then the Spa at the Shore Club might be what you’re looking for. The 8,000 square foot rooftop spa offers incredible views of the city and ocean which are worth checking out just for their sake. But visitors to the spa can also enjoy the wet and dry treatment rooms, the massage decks on the outdoor terraces, a large selection of massage, facial, body and nail treatments and an all over sense of relaxation and retreat.

Dining at Shore Club

Shore Club knows that keeping their guests on the property means having incredible dining options available. A little something for everyone seems to be their motto and none of their dining establishments tries harder to please everyone than Skybar. Skybar is actually several different dining areas, each with its own theme and name. The collection of locations that encompass Skybar includes: Redroom, Redroom Garden, Rumbar, and Sandbar. Nobu is one of the more favorite dining destinations in the city with its unique approach to food. Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s traditional Japanese training in sushi meets and marries his life and living experiences in Peru, Argentina and other locations around the world to form concoctions that leave the palate oddly satisfied but wanting more. And their third dining options is probably the most popular as it was opened in cooperation with Robert DeNiro. Ago brings chef Angostino Sciandri’s decade’s worth of experience in trattoria style Italian cuisine for a taste of Tuscany in South Beach. Ago also offers indoor and oceanfront terrace dining for those romantic South Beach evenings.
