Faena is undoubtedly one of top places to go for any occasion in the city—whether you’re looking to unwind at the spa, relax by the pool, check in for a lavish staycation, dine on a decadent feast or enjoy a night out—it is the perfect destination to head to. The spot’s opulent Living Room bar is the ultimate scene to be seen, and is a great choice if you’re trying to incorporate some of the spot’s delicious cuisine into your night out. Guests can expect to munch on tasty empanadas, tuna tartare and more delicious light bites.

The new restaurant/lounge opened by nightlife aficionado Chris Paciello makes for the perfect pregame spot to enjoy delectable food and cocktails. Standouts include their Mini Lobster Tacos, Miso Sea Bass Lettuce Cups, Mini Sliders and the Jezebel Spicy Tuna. Of course, you can’t forget about their Deep-Fried Oreos to pair with your game day spread. Cheat day doesn’t count.

What more can you ask for than tacos ‘n tequila? The South Beach hot spot has all your needs covered for the perfect night out, and the fix to satisfy those late-night cravings with an endless selection of creative tacos, burritos, quesadillas, chips and guac and of course, spicy Mexican cocktails.

Right next door to Bodega, its sister bar Ricky’s also has your alternative late-night dining craving offered at its best—cheesy pizza. But not just any ordinary pizza, though—the one and only, New York’s famed Artichoke Basille’s Pizza. You can thank us later.

While the new, trendy locale at the Washington Park Hotel has become famous around the country for its killer cocktail program, it also offers a delicious dining menu to enjoy as you sip on some craft cocktails. We can safely state that their beef tartare, authentically prepared table-side, is easily one of the top three in the city.
