Considered by many as the country’s most dynamic, fastest growing and sexiest city, Miami is more popular than ever before. Yet, it is a city that doesn’t merely change but evolves, never rewriting the past, just adding to its illustrious heritage. And this is the real beauty of Miami. The chic Surf Club and the vibrant Faena Hotel did not replace the emblematic Raleigh of the 1940s nor the Ritz Carlton of the 50s, rather they complement them. Classics like Joe’s Stone Crab continue to serve their signature fare to sell-out crowds each night, as new establishments attract with name chefs. The iconic art deco architecture remains on full display as the modern Herzog & de Meuron-designed Perez Art Museum stands in stark contrast. Replete with arts and culture year round from the international art at The Bass to the street art of Wynwood Walls, each December, the city is taken over by the global cultural elite for Art Basel Miami Beach, a fair that attracts over 80,000 visitors who turn out for the momentous art, such as Maurizio Cattelan’s show stopping “Comedian”, and the exuberant festivities hosted each evening.
Well-known for its nightlife, pleasure is a focal point of Miami life at all times. Yachts and recreational boats line its marinas, lively beaches offer front row seats to a parade of bronzed revelers, and bladers and bikers coast along its beach front promenades. Miami has become the hub for everything chic, fiery and colorful.Miami Beachtakes the readers on a tour of this bold and wonderous metropolis.

Consecutive parallel lines travel cleanly along the form, subtly grazing the Clear crystal bottle from its base to its shoulder. The lean stripes bring a textural quality to the surface, showcasing the three-dimensionality of the decanter and creating a visual depth to the whiskey within. The tall beveled stopper, which resembles a stately top hat, adds linear emphasis. The vertical sweep of the striping is also present on other pieces of the Harmonie collection, which includes highballs and tumblers. All of these pieces complement a well-stocked bar for the smoothest of drinking experiences.
