Premium cable’s apparent answer to Mad Men, Magic City
(10 p.m. Friday, Starz) opens on New Year’s Eve 1958 in Miami Beach,
Fla. Ike Evans (played by Javier Bardem-lookalike Jeffrey Dean Morgan)
owns the luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, the pinnacle of Miami
vacationing and nightlife.
There’s nothing wrong with hitting up
your standby local drinkery, but it’s not always appealing to run into
every old high school jock, boss or college nemesis when you’re just out
hoping for a good time. Luckily, there’s a solution outside of drinking
home alone. Hotel bars are oft-unappreciated gems
with staffs engrossed with hospitality.
