Since it’s opening in 1954, Fontainebleau Miami Beach has always been the place to see and be seen. Fontainebleau’s famed architect Morris Lapidus wrote, “If you create a stage and it is grand, everyone who enters will play their part.” With it’s marble floors sprinkled with the iconic bowtie symbol, glittering chandeliers, and the captivating ‘Stairway to Nowhere’ the Chateau lobby truly sets the stage for the ultimate photo moment.
If a city could have been created to use as a vibrant background for photographs, that city is Miami Beach. Head out to the beach and surrender to the warmth of the sun on your very own daybed. Few pleasures can compare to the simple joy of chasing waves along miles of pristine sand or lounging under a beach umbrella lulled by the sound of the surf between.
Pro tip: After you snag the perfect beach shot, finish off the day on the water by renting a wave runner, banana boat, paddle board, or kayak.

Pro tip: grab one of the famed Fontainebleau robes from the closet for your shot, then maybe never take it off?
Scarpetta by Scott Conant
To twirl or not to twirl? That is the only question you need to ask when snapping your spaghetti selfie at Scarpetta by Scott Conant. Named for an Italian expression that means “little shoe,” or the shape bread takes when used to soak up a dish, Scarpetta recalls the pure pleasure of savoring a meal down to the very last bite.
Pro tip: make sure to check out the pasta section on the menu! With options like Duck and Foie Gas Raioli, Lobster Tagliatelle, and the infamous Tomato and Basil Spaghetti, the photo pasta-abilities are endless.
All that and dim sum. The name “Hakkasan” pays homage to the ‘Hakka’ people from the New Territories of Hong Kong while ‘san’ is the respectful Japanese form of address. This same tradition and respect goes into every menu item and how they are each prepared and presented. Everywhere you turn you will be surrounded with blue hues and dim sum baskets galore.
Pro tip: make your way over the the bar where the teak walls and turquoise hues that evoke sea and sand will make the perfect boomerang #nofilterneeded.
