If trendy shops and buzzy restaurants surrounded by vivid street art are your “where-I-wanna-be” place, then Wynwood is the place for you.
This vibrant, exciting hotspot was first made famous by the Wynwood Walls—an outdoor museum displaying 35 murals by world-renowned artists. And it just exploded from there. Hip artisanal eateries, craft breweries, and funky shops with an industrial chic vibe moved in fast and Miami’s coolest neighborhood was born. Guided tours and featured artists change frequently, making it an ever-fresh, repeat destination for visitors and locals alike. And a very cool place to live.

Seatings typically include 8 to 10 courses of both hot and cold dishes, a sushi feature, and dessert.
Named one of the best bars in Wynwood by Time Out magazine, Dante’s HiFi is a vinyl listening bar dedicated to audiophiles and inspired by 1950s-era Japanese listening bars. With just 50 seats, reservations are a must for anyone looking to sip on creative cocktails while delving into the 8,500-record library. Memberships are available and offer perks such as priority seating and member-exclusive events.

It doesn’t get more local than The Wynwood Shop, where just about everything is made in Miami-Dade. Hand-made and hand-decorated tees, hats, jewelry, and art ensure you’ll find something truly one-of-a-kind.
What Are My Outdoor Activity Options?
