By the time Miami’s Havana Club (www.thehavanaclubofmiami.com) opened in December, 700 of its 800 membership slots already had been filled. The renovated space at the Miami City Club on the 55th floor of the Wachovia Financial Center provides an elegant venue for entertaining or conducting business while enjoying a smoke. The Havana Club, which offers fine dining even after midnight, features a new air filtration system that ionizes any indoor haze that otherwise might cloud the 360-degree view. Members pay an initiation fee of $5,000 and monthly dues of $300.
