Celebrity Sightings

Everyone knows that celebrities love Miami! But the question is, where can you spot them at? Here are the Five Best Places to Spot Celebrities in Miami:

  • Prime One Twelve is known as one of the best steakhouses on Miami Beach. Supposedly the food is amazing and a ton of celebrities go there! “You have your Miami citizens like Gloria Estefan…but you also have Cameron Diaz, Alex Rodriguez, and President Bill Clinton eating there. Oh wait, and lets not forget that Chad Ochocinco was there that same night. And that was on a Thursday!”
  • Cheeseburger Baby is the oldest cheeseburger joint on South Beach and it is way more affordable than the popular steakhouse. The people you are likely to see here range from Beyonce and Jay-Z to the famous Urkel and you can catch them eating at the diner-like counter or the back patio.
  • Fontainebleau is a whole other story. It is the most historically and architecturally significant hotel on Miami Beach and there is so much to do there! “Every celebrity possible has partied or passed out there. Even President Obama hosts events there.”
  • The Webster is the ultimate place to shop in Miami. “It has some of the most gorgeous clothes you have ever seen and it’s one of the only stores in America that carries things you can only get in Europe.” It’s no surprise that celebs like to shop too and you can catch them there most weekends out of the year and you’re guaranteed to see everyone from reality TV stars to Hollywood icons.
  • Mac’s Club Deuce has an 8:00am to 7:00pm happy hour. It’s been around since 1926 and there is no dress code and no velvet rope! “To catch your favorite celebrity at Deuce, head there late night. It’s the perfect after-hours bar.”

Take a look at the video, “How to Handle a Celebrity Sighting” so you can prepare yourself on how to act if you get lucky enough to spot one!

Now you know where to go shopping and hopefully you’ll get a chance to visit these malls and famous celeb spots! I know I want to!
