Wedding season is quickly approaching across the U.S., which means it’s time for brides-to-be to start rallying their gals for the ultimate Bachelorette party! Miami, often pegged the Magic City, is one of the country’s most popular bachelorette destinations. I’ve rounded up some of the city’s top spots suitable for all sorts of future brides…
For the Budget Conscious
Dine and dance without breaking bank at Villa Azur’s “For Her” Mondays. A GNO favorite, this Ladies Night is perfect for the Bachelorette party on a budget as it features the restaurant’s award-winning level cuisine and specialty cocktails at 50% off and a DJ on deck mixing party beats.

Sciuri has brought something gastronomically special and affordable to Miami Beach. Located at 541 Jefferson Avenue (just off South Beach’s Fifth Street), the cafe is the perfect place for a girls’ brunch or to grab sweet treats on the go! Did I mention its chic aesthetic also makes for the best IG-worthy shots too? Sciuri also offers sinfully sweet and authentic Italian pastries, brews tasteful coffees and teas, and serves flavorful dishes throughout the day. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., this sweet spot makes a perfect addition to any bachelorette affair.
For the One Who Likes the Finer Things
Sunday at Seaspice is Miami’s unrivaled IT–spot for a lively brunch where guests arrive by boat and brace themselves for the day ahead. Make a grand entrance by boat using the YachtLife app to charter the most extravagant vessel money can buy. Then, enjoy brunch options like Short Rib Benedict, Baked Shrimp & Eggs Casserole and Oysters Rockefeller Benedict, or a la carte options, all the while dancing to upbeat house music with friends. Up your luxe game by ordering the Seafood Carnival ($750), which offers two 2 lb lobsters, 8 jumbo prawns, 24 oysters, Alaskan king crab, Florida stone crab, tuna sashimi, salmon sashimi, Hamachi sashimi, salmon coconut ceviche, 2 oz. sevruga caviar.

Notable guests spotted near these tables include Naomi Campbell, Barbara Streisand, Miami Heat’s Hassan Whiteside, Scott Disick, and Goldie Hawn, to name a few.
Avant Gallery and LaMuse Café
Tucked away at the EPIC Hotel in Downtown Miami, visit Avant Gallery and its in-house eatery, LaMuse Café, for a refreshing meal to cure your hangover with a side of culture. The contemporary art gallery features unique works from emerging artists such as Alec Monopoly, Skyler Grey, DAIN and BNS. Indulge in a French-inspired breakfast or lunch with the girls to recharge at LaMuse while perusing the walls of Avant Gallery – perhaps treat yourself to an early wedding gift and spice up the walls at home with one of the works at Avant.
For the Party Animals
Celebrate your last night of singlehood with dinner at The Dutch and at one of WALL’s famed weekly parties.
