Need a little guidance from the natives? Check out our all-time favorite must-see, must-go places. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
Tucked in the heart of Wynwood, the WAREhOUSE attracts and welcomes thousands of students and visitors from around the world for its famed Margulies Collection—a non-profit operated and funded by the Martin Z. Margulies Foundation. It’s considered by curators, critics, artists, dealers and collectors as one of the most important collections of its kind.
They say the Oliver Cole Gallery is a contemporary gallery, featuring modern street and pop art. But you wouldn’t be wrong to describe its unique collection of glowing skulls and faceless teddy bears as futuristic, ambient eye-candy that’s also very creepy/bougie/cool.
This is a one-of-a-kind find – and one of the truest expressions of Wynwood. Founded by William Braemer nearly 20 years ago, this long-standing Chelsea-style gallery has given countless emerging artists from around the globe their chance to break into the discerning Miami art scene.
Just steps away from the famed Wynwood Walls, Concrete Beach Brewery’s classically brewed selection of ales and lager compliment the array of art that surrounds their 20-barrel brew-hall. Real Brewski-lovers are most welcome to take a tour Monday-Friday at 7pm, and Saturdays and Sundays once an hour between 1-4pm.
Chef Michael Lewis, and general manager Steven Haigh, have brought a seriously fresh concept to Miami with their opening of KYU. No joke, this is literally every Wynwood Shop’s associate’s favorite spot to eat. The Raging Geisha is our favorite cocktail, hands down—it’s a delicious mix of double-aged Toki Japanese Whisky, St. Germain, Thai Basil, and obliterated Cucumbers (yeah, don’t ask) with fresh dill. There. Is. Nothing. Like. It. And our favorite food on the menu? Try the Fried Cauliflower, the Beef Tartare, and the absolutely to-die-for Thai fried rice stone pot.
They say “Gramps is a bar with lots to drink and do.” And it’s true. There’s always something new and different happening here, which makes it the perfect home-away-from-home hang out whether you’re a local or a passerby. And with friendly employees, good old-fashioned air conditioning, cold beer, and cocktails, you just can’t be a grump at Gramps. P.S.: Try the Tropical Pizza and our favorite cocktails, Penicillin and Cucumber in Paradise. You’ll thank us later.
