Once upon a time, this park dedicated to showcasing the grafiti world’s top talents was the only draw in bustling Wynwood. But now you can grab a juice at Jugo Fresh or a cup of Joe at Panther Coffee while perusing the plentiful walls.
2. SWEAT RECORDS
5505 NE 2nd Avenue
What up-and-coming neighborhood would be complete without an indie record shop and cafe, where you can catch exclusive in-stores from the city’s best musicians? Plus, we’ve heard vinyl is the new MP3.
4312 NE 2nd Avenue
Looking for chic, charming, delicious alfresco dining where all the cool and beautiful people hang out? Of course you are, you’re in Miami!
4. DE LA CRUZ COLLECTION
23 NE 41st Street
Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz love con- temporary art and want to share their incredible collection. Come by to view it for free, and take advantage of the art classes for kids and continuing op- portunities for artists.
5. THE CORNER BAR
1035 N. Miami Avenue
New Yorkers feel at home at this down- town spot. Choose a Tuesday evening of jazz, snacks, and cocktails or a Saturday at 3 am to watch the Miami hipster gremlin set take over till closing at 8 am. Something for everyone!
6. PEREZ ART MUSEUM
1103 Biscayne Boulevard
Prove all those people who think you went to Miami just to lay on the beach and swill drinks wrong, by checking out this architecturally stunning con- temporary museum.
7. LOST BOY DRY GOODS
157 E. Flagler Street
If Miami Vice’s Crockett and Tubbs weren’t fictional characters from the 80s, this is where they’d shop for their pastels when not fighting crime. Stop by for great denim or that perfect piece of tropical are. What’s more— there’s even a bar in the store.
8. OYO COMO AYER
2212 S W 8th Street
For those looking for that authentic, sweaty, I feel like I experienced “the real” Miami because I danced until the wee hours of the morning to Latin mu- sic vibe…this is so your place. Enjoy!
9. THE BROKEN SHAKER
2727 Indian Creek Drive
“This doesn’t feel anything like Miami!” every first-timer exclaims. Locals love this place because of the killer cock- tails, the music, the staff, and the laid- back attitude—it feels EXACTLY like Miami to us.
1111 Lincoln Road
You’ll probably head to this reimag- ined parking garage designed by Her- zog & de Meuron because someone told you it was an architectural “must see.” Then, you’ll be like, “Ok, so it’s a parking garage, right?”
11. BOOKS AND BOOKS
927 Lincoln Road
With the exception of this wonderful book store cafe, local business is a waning reality on Lincoln Road. Here you can grab a great beach read, dine on vegan and gluten-free options, and enjoy some of the best people-watch- ing on the planet.
12. CLUB DEUCE
222 14th Street
The ultimate South Beach dive bar, here you can pop some songs on the jukebox, pull up a stool, and strike up a conversation with a guy who might be Keith Richards, or just looks like him.
13. LA SANDWICHERIE
229 14th Street
Beit 2pm or 2am, it is always a good time for these epic sandwiches. Made by the French, this spot feels sort of elite, though you’re essentially dining in a back alley, dodging occasional drug deals.
14. F1RST SURF SHOP
40 South Point Drive #107
“If it’s knee-high chop, we’re your shop,” brags Miami’s best surf shop. For locals and tourists looking to rent a paddle board or get the latest in tropical surfer chic, look no further.
15. JOE’S STONE CRAB
11 Washington Avenue
Yes, you know all about it…but do you really? Pop in to Joe’s take away for the less globally popular but affordable local favorite. To keep it bougie, grab some crabs and wine and have a pic- nic in close by South Pointe Park.
