La Fée Verte

SUMMER IS ALREADY HEATING up along one stretch of Miami Beach. Blame it on the green fairy, or La Fée Verte, fashion photographers Antoine Verglas and Navid’s new burlesque tease and absinthe lounge on 71st Street. Try one of the signature cocktails, like the Cuban—think of it as an absinthe mojito—and then stick around for a performance you won’t soon forget. 912 71st St., Miami Beach; clublafeeverte.com
