Concierge.com's insider take:
Miami Beach's 23rd Street is shaping up to be the buzzy new drag, thanks to the Gansevoort South and upcoming W hotels at the beachfront end. In the meantime, there's a new club from nightlife king Nicola Siervo, who's had an unbroken decade-long reign at the top of Miami Beach's scene (Bang, Bar None, Joia, Mynt). Mokaï—inexplicably named after a huge canyon in New Zealand—is a VIP-only bolthole with just 22 tables. It's decked out with huge alligator-, iguana-, and crocodile-leather sofas; sterling silver tables; and a space-age, ultramodern custom lighting system. Expect a hyperselective crowd and a tough door policy. But if you book a table for bottle service, the bouncers may just let you through the door.
Open Tuesdays through Saturdays.
