First we detailed New York’s cougar dens — now check out the same stalking in South Florida.
● Club 50 (Downtown/Brickell) -This megaclub is named after the number of stories it rises above ground, but if you’re lucky it’ll be named after the age of the gal you leave with. ● Rose Bar at the Delano (South Beach) – Miami practically invented the bed-as-chair nightclub fad. Now it’s your turn to invent the hookup-with-a-cougar-on-a-bed-as-chair-in-a-Miami-nightclub fad. ● Prime 112 (South Beach) – Nothing attracts cougars like succulent slabs of meat, which is why your greatest competition at this scene-y steakhouse is the menu.
● Casa Tua (South Beach) – If you manage to penetrate the upstairs members-only lounge of this haute Italian eatery, it’s, how they say, a done deal. ● B.E.D. (South Beach) – It’s best to avoid their Monday-night “Secret Society” parties, where ladies are fed for free. You want to do the feeding. ● Versace Mansion/Casa Casuarina (South Beach) – Gianni Versace made his name designing clothes, but we know him as big brother to Donatella, the high priestess of courgardom. If cougar was a religion, this would be its Notre Dame. ● Skybar (South Beach) – Naturalists claim that collagen, botox, and silicone taint the very essence of what a cougar is — embrace your age, don’t fight it. Having said that, if you are not a naturalist, go to Skybar. ● Smith & Wollensky (South Beach) – See those two women at the bar? The one with the martini is Mrs. Smith, and the one doing shots is her friend, Mrs. Wollensky. Go say hi. ● Plunge (South Beach) – If you’re not on your way back from an Abercrombie photoshoot, forget the cougars at this glassy rooftop oasis, whose standards are higher than their heels (and age). ● Barracuda’s (Coconut Grove) – You’ve left Plunge in defeat (we warned you), so it’s time for a dive. Elbowing your way to the bar is a mingling experience in an of itself, when collegiate types socialize. And by collegiate types we mean dudes who’ve had so much trouble mining the natural resources at campus bar that they’ve decided to go for the old.
