This is a great hotel if you want to spend New Years Eve in Miami, and away from the South Beach madness. The epic is a very trendy hotel with spacious rooms and beautiful views of Biscayne Bay, especially at night. Hotel staff is friendly and efficient.
We had the 5 course dinner on New Years Eve at Area 31 on the hotel's 16th floor. The view from the terrace was amazing. The food and service, was fantastic! Zuma on the first floor is another good choice for Japanese food and drinks. We walked to Bayside Market Place which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Lots of restaurants and places to have cocktails during the day/night. We will definitely stay at the EPIC again.
