In the Club
Hey, sun goddess! Sizzling SoBe favorite the Shore Club is shaking things up for the summer season. By day, dive in to, not one, but two infinity pools, and grab a bite at Terrazza, Shore Club’s see-and-beseen poolside resto, which recently introduced the Ladies Who Brunch series on Sundays from 11AM-4PM. Cure your Saturday-night hangover with bottomless mimosas, bellinis and a scrumptious menu including bites like lemon ricotta pancakes and French toast with marinated strawberries and bananas. Yum! Once the sun goes down, make a splash under the stars: Shore Club offers incredible on-site nightlife—think dining at Nobu and late-night lounging and dancing at Skybar. Plus, the hotel has some red-hot summer specials to make your stay even sweeter: The Happy Shopping Package (from $339) offers exclusive discounts at local retailers, a 25 percent discount at the Spa at Shore Club and a bottle of Champ to pop upon arrival. We’re smiling just thinking about it... Rooms from $186, @shoreclubsobe –Alison Abbey
