Hotels to Avoid When the Jersey Shore Comes to South Beach

February 16, 2010 at 12:30 PM | by | ()

Jonesin’ for a dose of Jersey Shore? Well, head south, my friends, because the next stop for Snooki and The Situation looks like South Beach. The show filming its second season in Miami makes so much sense that we’re surprised we didn’t see this coming long before Sammi and Ronnie’s second break-up and make-up.

SoBe is of course more than equipped as a party town, but is it ready for this level of fist-pumping and beating the beat? Locals and the rest of the folks within a 10-mile radius of Miami Beach will find out in May, when the cast moves into its MTV house somewhere near Lincoln Road.

For anyone not interested in getting into fist fights or enjoying the fine-musical stylings of DJ Pauly D, here’s our handy list of places to avoid when the Jersey Shore kids hit South Beach.

The Obvious: These party pads are no-brainers: the Clevelander, the Catalina, and the Gansevoort South (sorry, Miami Social-ites, there’s a new show full of scenery-chewing wannabes in town!). Now that they’re bringing in more green, the cast will probably also want to flaunt their hot selves at the W South Beach.

The Italian Restaurants: Being so far from their mamas means the boys will be looking for some good chicken parm and lasagna. (Snooki should be all set with her jar of pickles.) That’s why we expect to see the kids drop in at the Hotel Victor, which has a new restaurant, Victor Café with an Italian menu—and a revamped Ocean Drive patio where The Situation could solicit new friends strolling by. Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau should also see some Jersey Shore action, as should the hotel’s nightclub LIV.

The Dark Horses: Smaller hotels with Italian restaurants are not immune, so watch out for JWoww and co. at the Hotel Nash’s I Bischeri and Prime Italian at the Prime Hotel. And if they do drag themselves downtown to the Brickell neighborhood, we wager that the Jersey Shore kids would be all over the brunch scene at Eos at the Viceroy.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you …
