Monocle reports from around the globe in print, on radio, and online. As its editors and correspondents dart from city to city, they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs, and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is now available in Monocle’s Travel Guide Series: a line-up of titles that speaks to you in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets.
These are books that go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city—no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle’s team won’t list a hundred places to eat but they will tell you where’s best for everything from some tasty fast food to something truly celebratory.
Cities are fun. Let’s explore.
A tour of Miami’s outposts of good food, design, retail, and more, this definitive travel guide will make you feel like a local no matter where you are from.
Miami has a lot going for it: its shoreline, year-round warm weather, and diverse population. So don’t just get caught in the bubble of fun but distracting Miami Beach. This guide will help you explore the city’s numerous neighborhoods—from Little Havana and Coral Gables to the Design District—and discover its full potential. Monocle will introduce you to the dynamic arts and culture scene that is surely the most vibrant and exciting in the U.S., the best bars and restaurants—often more laid-back than in other big North American cities—and everything in between.
Monocle’s team shares the knowledge it has acquired from regular pilgrimages down south from its bureaus in Toronto and New York, as well as its contacts and insider knowledge from being regular attendees at Art Basel Miami Beach. This is a guide that shows modern Miami for what it is—and without the tired bikini and sports-car clichés.
