The restaurant on the top of the 1111 garage might be Miami’s best date-with-a-view spot. And with the cool breeze billowing in at night, it’s also one of the more pleasant places to exist as a human on balmy South Florida nights. That said, it’ll also put a bigger dent in your wallet than an unexpected FPL bill, so make sure to pack the no-limit card and take the edge off with a Juvia Bird (Elyx vodka, chambord, blackberry, ginger, mint, lemon juice). Then kick back by the ivy-covered wall outside, soak up the award-winning design and stunning ocean views, and marvel at discovering a South Beach spot actually worth its price tag.
Busting out your phone on a romantic night out is probably the quickest way to ensure there won’t be a second outing… but it’s almost impossible when presented with the architectural tableau Juvia spreads out before you and your paramour. From the top of the 1111 building, this restaurant gazes east across Miami Beach at the largest collection of Art Deco buildings in the world, then out onto the Atlantic Ocean. And even amid the crowds of beautiful people that pack the place nightly, the warm humid air merging with that view is pure romance—just try not to ruin it with too many selfies.
