5 of the best places to spot celebrities in Miami

1) Seaspice Brasserie & Lounge

If you want to catch Beyoncé and Jay Z in the eating act, this renovated warehouse on the Miami River, with dockage that yacht captains jockey over, is the place to do it. Other superstars who quaffed bubbly and feasted on delicacies here include Barbra Streisand, Ryan Phillippe, Marc Anthony and David Beckham.

2) Prime 112

This meat palace attracts a ton of the Hollywood elite year round, and for good reason: The beef is Kobe – including the hot dogs and burgers – and the caviar and truffles abound. Top names range from Kim Kardashian to Taraji P. Henson. You’ll also spot a lot of current and former athletes, including Floyd Mayweather, Chris Bosh and LeBron James.

3) The Deck at Island Gardens

This stunning waterside restaurant and lounge is located in the only private superyacht marina in North America, which is complete with a helipad. You can bet that any given night – or bottomless brunch – will deliver handfuls of the rich, famous and eclectic out for a night of Ibiza-like partying or Capri-like snacking with the likes of Patrick Schwarzenegger, Scottie Pippen, and more.

4) Art Basel Miami Beach

This international visual arts festival transforms the South Beach and the main corridor of Miami into a progressive party (and traffic) jam. Luminaries from every medium – art, film, music, sports and literature – show up to perform, host, curate or simply appear at charity events, gallery walks, product releases and museum showcases. While many of the events are private or require a ticket, others are open to the public.
