Popping Corks

Miami’s top five ways to start ’14 right


Leave 2013 in the dust with fancy eats, open bars, and your first hangover of 2014.

And by hangover, we mean ringing in your ears from world-class DJs and enough blinged-out bashers to make even LeBron do a double-take.

On that note, a sweatband might not be the worst idea.

Lounge Into the New Year:
dbBistro Moderne
Blow it up with a five-course tasting menu, champagne, ball drop, and DJ. Or lounge it with the raw bar, charcuterie, and oh, another DJ.
5p-3a. 225 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Downtown (305-421-8800).
$75 and $195 here

Hyde Lounge
Only headliner Pitbull has better seats than those in this exclusive, 250-baller spot at court level.
8p. Hyde Lounge at the AAA, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Downtown (855-777-4933).
$150-3,500 here

For the Rock Stars: Delano South Beach
The Weeknd performs poolside, or indulge in a four-course meal at Bianca Restaurant. High rollers, reserve a cabana.
9p-5a. Delano South Beach, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach (305-924-4071).
$200-700 here.

Asian Style: Patpong Road

9p-2a. Patpong Road, 1661 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach (305-763-8147). No cover. 

Viva la Mexico:
Get your Mexican on in Midtown with a five-course sharing menu at 9:45p, plus a two-hour open bar and champagne toast. Margarita toasts are also encouraged.

Now pass the bottle of pain reliever.
