The 14 Best Make-Out Spots in Miami

Published On 04/01/2015 Published On 04/01/2015

There's one way Miami outshines every other city (in addition to these 22 things, obviously): it has the most attractive people. Unfortunately, you're not the only guy/girl after said attractive people, so if you want a leg up on the competition but don't have a European sports car or a vaguely European accent, you better take your dates someplace sure to inspire romance. Or at least hanky-panky. Here are the 14 best make-out spots in Miami...

On a boat

Biscayne Bay
Boats are an instant turn on. Also, you’re in Miami, so you probably know someone that owns a boat... just don't let 'em near your date.

Delano Hotel

The Rose Bar at the Delano Hotel

Miami Beach
This spot has been keeping things romantic since the ‘90s. First check out the Alice in Wonderland-like outdoor space, then head inside to get acquainted over cocktails and sick beats. One thing may lead to another, and well, you’re at a hotel…


The Red Room at Café Prima Pasta

North Beach
You’ll find this Fifty Shades of Grey-esque room in the back of the restaurant. Larger groups usually use it, but anyone that wants privacy can rent it out (Chris Bosh and Matt Damon swear by it). A bottle of wine and some pasta later, everyone will start puckering up.

Lou’s Beer Garden

Lou’s Beer Garden

North Beach
This day-drinking spot is all about low-key vibes but doesn’t forget the romance with ultra comfy couches under palm trees and umbrellas, and a geeky beer list. Wait until they bring out the bone luge.

The parking lot by 94th Aero Squadron

Perimeter Rd
Yeah you can go to 94th Aero Squadron restaurant to watch planes at MIA, but that would mean spending money and fewer opportunities for making out. Opt for the viewing parking lot next door instead.

Devon Seafood + Steak

Outside on the patio at Devon Seafood + Steak

If you find yourself in this part of the county, this will be your saving grace. Make a beeline to its outside patio for wine and oysters. Fire pits set the mood.

The Standard

The Standard Spa

Miami Beach
Make an entire day of it at this retro mini-paradise. Spend a whole day lounging by the pool or strolling through the gardens where you can go full on PDA, then lounge some more at the couch-lined fire pit after the sun goes down.

W South Beach

The Living Room at W South Beach

Miami Beach
This salon-like lounge is one of the city’s craft cocktail originals. If the indoor space doesn’t cut it, this "living room" extends outside -- i.e. couches under the moonlight, poolside.

The News Lounge

The News Lounge Cafe

After hitting Andiamo, Soyka, or Sushi Siam for dinner the only logical next step is a nightcap and a smooch-fest inside the VIP mirror room, where voyeurism is encouraged.

American Social

American Social

Brickell/Fort Lauderdale
One restaurant/bar offers two very different locations and experiences. Whether you prefer oversized couches overlooking the Miami River or an FSU-style frat house, it’s your call. Whatever turns you on.

Hobie Beach

Key Biscayne
Make your way to the island and right after you cross the first bridge, turn right and park under the pines. Whether you get out of your car or not, you’ll have one of the best views of the city. But then, you’re not there for those types of views.

Viceroy Miami

The elevator at FIFTY Ultra Lounge

Downtown Miami
It’s a long way up to the 50th floor, so get the action started in the elevator.

Khong River House

Khong River House

Miami Beach
The intimate back room is waaay better for sneaking kisses between gin cocktails and drunken rice noodles. If you’re feeling shy, sneak off to the dark bathroom corridors. You’ll find the Confession Wall along the way, where inspiration abounds.

The back patio at Little Bread

Little Havana
Few people know that this Cuban newcomer has a huge outdoor space that connects with an art gallery. Even better, they have Biscayne Brewing Company brews and Azucar ice cream on the menu.
