MIAMI: The Magic City // Part 2
In Part 1, Sabrina outlined hidden gems and local spots to find the best shopping in Wynwood. Next up is the neighborhood’s best places to eat, drink, and satisfy the sweet tooth.
If you are after a space to just chill and maybe some trivia, check out Gramps. Thirsty for some seriously delicious drinks? Make your way to the patio at The Anderson in Little River… with killer live sets and late night DJ’s it can turn into a dance party in the interior. We are super excited about the new Acme Lounge in the arts and entertainment district. If you head out to the beaches and want an evening under the stars, enjoy the garden of The Broken Shaker, or have your Punch Bowl served poolside in the afternoon.
For a little bit of everything, one of my absolute favorite places is The Wynwood Yard — an outdoor event space, and creative hub with workshops, and concerts… grab a drink at Mortar & Pistil, cuisine from one of many dope pop-ups like Della Bowls in a vibrant setting. Go on a Friday evening for a Taste of the Yard… where a must try is the Kombucha popsicles from Radiate Apothecary! On the note of delicious treats, there are any number of places from which to choose. Head to Kush for a burger that is out of this world. Grab an on-pointe Mexican Street Corn aka elote de calle from Coyo Taco. I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Smood - healthy, delicious, organic, fair trade all those words you love to hear, but more importantly taste for juices, coffees and light bites. For some legit Italian in a sweet boho space, mangia at Soya e Pomodoro. If you find yourself Downtown, Fooq’s is my go-to for some farm-to-table goodness; whereas we love to wind down the day in Wynwood at Wynwood Diner for libations and tasty bites. Our Stylist Diana adores the diversity of our ‘hood, with places like R House [for the] great food and drinks. Joey’s has great pizza and I love Morgans for Sunday brunch!”
Enjoy some delicious fresh sourdough bread (or any delicious baked goodies) from Zak the Baker which is just one street over from our shop! Get your java on at the Miam Cafe in Wynwood, if you head downtown, grab an iced coffee from All Day MIA which also does weekly cuppings on Wednesdays (basically specialty coffee bean tastings), and if tea is more your vibe, JoJo Tea does by-appointment extended tea tastings.
Satisfy That Sweet Tooth
Hit up Azucar for some delectable homemade Cuban Ice cream (you can’t miss the huge @$$ cone on the side of the building) and since I would solely eat ice cream if I could, also check out Serendipity, and take a big bite of one of the specialty Ice Cream sandwiches at Wynwood Parlor served from their truck or delivered via Uber Eats. For some seriously decadent Doughnuts meander to The Salty Donut.
While Magic is officially defined as “an extraordinary power or influence seemingly from a supernatural force;” and Miami technically got this nickname for its super fast growth. Miami Stylist Vanessa summarizes what we feel contributes to the true magic of this city, “Miami's diversity creates magic for me. There's no other place in the U.S. quite like Miami. It's not just the beaches, sky rises and art. It's the people, the music and food.” It's the conflux of the heat and cool waters, the burgeoning art that flowed so truly it spilled out onto the walls, churned with the diversity of the people that created the enchanting flavors of the city. This magic fills our senses and courses through us to be explored. So fill your days with the majestic and let’s create magic in the MIA.
