There are plenty of places to blow $350 or so on a $25 bottle of Absolut Mandrin, but if it's the highest tier of upscale pretension that you're aspiring to, look no farther than Bungalow 8. The tiny lounge, with its snobbish door policy, potted palm trees, and PVC-happy celeb stalkers, is way too South Beach to actually exist in South Beach. Among the perks are $22 glasses of champagne (two, please). The music may leave something to be desired, but you're not here to bone up on experimental house records; you're coming here to impress somebody. And you'll impress us if you manage to get past the doorman.
