As we close out the last week in January, everyone in Miami is planning something special. Whether you’re planning on jamming your weekend with action-packed days, planning your days off around what you’re eating or making your debut during the night, the city has plenty to choose from. Here’s our haute picks of how to spend your weekend:


DRINKS WITH A SHOW at the grand opening of Miami Beach’s newest and first All-Inclusive Complex, Copa Room. Catch Las Vegas style shows as you enjoy a premium open bar in honor of the club’s debut.

sbe REINTRODUCES TOWNHOUSE with a posh party showcasing the recently renovated hotel and its new and hip look with bites from hotel restaurant K Ramen and sips from its upstairs bar, The Cape.

PLACE YOUR BET at the world’s richest thoroughbred race coming to Gulfstream Park this weekend at the Pegasus World Cup. Dress to impress and watch Arrogate and California Chrome compete amongst ten other world-class horses from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Get all the details here.

FEAST AND WELCOME IN THE CHINESE NEW YEAR by snagging a table at one of Miami’s favorite restaurants offering specially-curated, delectable feasts to ring in the year of the Rooster in authentic Chinese style. We recommend the Fontainebleau’s Hakkasan, TALDE, La Mar or MO Bar + Lounge at the Mandarin Oriental or the swanky new EAST, Miami Hotel’s rooftop bar, Sugar, for an amazing lineup of food, drinks and special entertainment.

MIAMI CITY BALLET hosts its annual gala at the Faena Forum, marking the first-ever gala to occur at the brand-new, opulent event space, as it is transformed into a frozen winter wonderland for the occasion.

RUN If you’re trying to finish your dry-month strong, join the group as they head out for the 26-mile journey on Sunday morning. Hopefully you’re an early riser because this gets started at 5:45 a.m.

PARTY THROUGH THE DAY and pretend you’re at Burning Man at The Confidante hotel’s newest SPF Pool & Beach Party as the hit party launches into its second season of Sunday Funday. Dress in your best Burning Man attire.
