The only times I’ve been to Miami are for work, but have managed to sneak in some fun along the way! A few recommendations below –
Fontainebleau. Massive hotel, amazing pool, easy beach access – what more can you really ask for?
Eat & Drink
Wynwood Kitchen & Bar – delicious food and amazing art. I’m a sucker for tapas and street art and this place combines them in a really amazing way. The tapas menu is extensive and the drinks are really interesting and delicious. In my opinion the best part of the place is the outdoor patio and the Shepard Fairey art lining the walls.
The Rum Line – this tiki bar hidden in the Loews Hotel is not to be missed. It’s a great way to escape the hustle of Collins Ave. Palm print pillows, inventive rum drinks – The Rum Line can really make you feel like you’re on vacation!
Hakkasan – if you’re staying at the Fontainebleau, eat at Hakkasan. Enough said.
Miami Design District – amazing art can be found all around Miami. I loved being constantly surprised and inspired by murals and installations around every corner. We went to the design district one night for dinner stumbled upon these sculptures.
Wynwood Walls – the famed Wynwood Walls definitely lived up to the hype. I’m planning to make a point to go back whenever I’m in Miami, as the art and artists are always switching it up.
Peter Tunney Gallery – Wandering out of Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, I was so excited to come across the Peter Tunney gallery. I have always loved seeing the City of Dreams billboard coming into NYC from JFK, but truthfully never knew who the artist was. The collage and bold typography just speaks to me. Seeing an entire gallery of Tunney’s work was such a treat.
Boardwalk Run – if you’re staying on the beach, or even if you’re not, I highly recommend a walk or run along the boardwalk. I mean, with sights like these it will make those miles so much more bearable.
I hope you enjoy YOUR Miami adventure!
