Rock Steady

Your stress-free guide to Miami's top 5 killer first dates


There are plenty of places to make her swoon here in the Magic City. 

But it's only the first meetup. Leave romancing her at Red Fish Grill for the second date. 

Here's our countdown of the top 5 first dates in Miami. 

5. Juvia
Sitting high up in a penthouse garden enjoying magnificent sunset views over the city...yeah, that'll do. There’s no way this sexy space won’t have the two of you ogling each other after a few cucumber coolers.  
1111 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach (305-763-8272)

4. The Social Club
With its mix-and-match furniture, art-splashed walls, and Peruvian gastrobar spread, this offbeat new space provides the ideal get-to-know-each-other locale with a noise level you can actually talk over. 
Surfcomber South Beach, 1717 Collins Ave., (305-604-1800).

3. Popup Cooking Class at Edge Steak & Bar
Get both of your hands dirty with this monthly pop-up cooking series that'll have you crafting up everything from homemade pasta to spicy Indian dishes alongside all-you-can-drink beer or wine pairings.
Four Seasons Hotel Miami, 1435 Brickell Ave., Brickell (305-381-3190). $75 per person.

2. Wine Tasting Tuesdays at WD 555
Swirl, sniff, and sip on three complimentary hand-selected bottles (think Bollinger Brut and Astica Malbec) inside this intimate wine cellar setting as you ramp up a good buzz before grabbing a take-home bottle for later.
Every Tuesday; 6-8p. 555 Jefferson Ave., Miami Beach (305-672-6161). Free.

1. Xtreme Indoor Karting 
She less into tasting than racing? Up the ante for date night by racing her around a 1/2-mile asphalt track at 45 mph, then test her skills at air hockey in the arcade. Win or lose, you're getting the beer bucket at the sports bar.
5300 Powerline Rd., Fort Lauderdale (954-491-6265). $19.50 and up.
