SUGAR AT EAST, MIAMI
Miami does rooftops better than anyone. Sugar, the 40th-floor bar atop the hotel EAST, Miami, is no exception. This chic spot in Brickell opened in 2016 and features Asian-inspired cocktails and fare, a nod to the management company’s Hong Kong homebase. This can be seen in drinks like the Lychee Blossom (vodka, sake, and lychee) and the Toki Highball (Suntory Whisky Toki, yuzu, Lagavulin 16, soda). The bar, complete with stone pathways and bonsai trees, feels like a garden oasis in the middle of Japan -- though nowhere in Japan can offer its 360-degree views of Miami, of course.
