Plunge Bar, Gansevoort South
Took a gander at the rooftop lounge Plunge Bar at the new Gansevoort South. Polished teak floors, white couches, a shimmering lap pool. This will no doubt be the new nightlife hangout considering the views are spectacular, it's plenty spacious with lots of seating (though I don't know if they enforce bottle service for the cabanas) and besides the rooftop of the Townhouse Hotel, there's nothing else like it on the beach. Plus, you know how Miami's nightlife hounds are - they like new shiny things, and as far this rooftop is concerned, it's a scenester's lollipop. The only downside? Wind and heat. So until June-ish this is the place to be. The multi-colored cabanas each have their own flatscreen TV's. In fact, flatscreen TV's seem to be quite a feature at the hotel, as each elevator also boasts its own endlessly looping screen. Average drink price: $13.
