Wine and Dine Al Fresco
There’s nothing quite like it when the sun is shining on your face and there’s a cold drink in your hand. As summer fast approaches, there’s a shift in our mentality and our lifestyle. We’re less inclined to spend that extra 30 minutes at the office and more interested in enjoying a sunny afternoon with friends and family. So close that laptop, turn off your cell phone, and start making your way to these breezy spots for a little wining and dining al fresco.
The Roof Deck at Vanderbilt Grace, Newport, Rhode Island
Watch the boats sail in and out of Newport Harbor on the Roof Deck. Located in a Gilded Age mansion turned luxury hotel, it’s some of the finest New England living has to offer.
Sugar at East, Miami, Florida
Go on an adventure at Sugar. With its tropical décor and Asian-inspired cocktails, like the Lychee Blossom made with sake, vodka, and lychee, you’ll feel transported to another world. The rooftop bar and garden is nestled on the fortieth floor of EAST, a modern hotel in downtown Miami.
The Beachcomber Café, Newport Coast, California
A converted cottage located in the Crystal Cove Historic District, the atmosphere around the charming Beachcomber Café is relatively unchanged since the 1920’s. After a long day, have a bite of classic Southern California fare coupled with a Catalina Sunset martini. Don’t forget to come back for breakfast.
Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Bondi Beach, Australia
If you haven’t heard of the sweeping white sands of Bondi Beach, google it. It’s worth the flight. Enjoy fine dining at Icebergs while listening to the crystal blue waves of the South Pacific meeting the crescent-shaped shore. The menu is a rich blend of regional Italian cuisine featuring the best produce Australia has to offer, so it’s constantly changing with the seasons.
