The Gates epitomizes the SoBe lifestyle as a newly reimagined boutique hotel located in a historic South Beach building (once the Ankara Motel) right on Collins Avenue, conveniently next to Ocean Drive, Miami's nightlife epicenter and sought after beach destination. Guests can take their signature SoBe Tuk-Tuk on a 5-minute open-air ride to the beach, where they'll find beach chairs and towels. The hotel's decor flourishes with award-winning photographer Jorge de la Torriente of de La Gallery's artwork, which depicts vibrant scenes of South Floridan culture.
Sample specialty cocktails or some of the 100 imported tequilas and mezcals at the newly launched Mexican-inspired restaurant Agaveros Cantina. The hotel also has an expanded pool deck with custom double-sided cabanas mixed as well as communal tables for outdoor dining, and a bar between the pool area and restaurant.
Of course, you'd be remiss not to take a bike ride along the beach to explore Miami’s most instagrammed place, Wynwood Walls. You can also venture to El Titan — the Calle Ocho factory that's made handcrafted, traditional Cuban cigars for more than 20 years and learn how to roll your own.
