The Local House: we actually ended up here twice during our trip because we loved it so much; once for brunch and once for dinner. The staff is super friendly and kind and all of the food we had was stellar. Sit outside, there’s a nice patio and it’s Florida honeys.
Miami, FL is one of my favorite places for vacation because you can literally do anything; South Beach, pools, clubs, museums, incredible food. It’s culturally colorful and the retro art deco vibes are unreal. Here are a few of the things that I love in this city of color:
11th Street Diner: this was a cutie retro chill place that was right across from our hotel. The food was relatively cheap an amazing, classic American diner style. They have boozy milkshakes and incredible mojitos. This is a great place for a quick and cheap lunch.
Limonada: this is a trendier spot that we went for brunch. It’s a beautiful environment with lots of fun drink options. They also offer drinking games and their brunch was delicious. There’s a little pool in the back that you can hang at and they have a great bottomless deal for $25 from 9-3.
Broken Shaker: we went here for tapas and drinks one night. It’s a beautiful and relaxed ambience with quirky decor and lots of different settings for seating. The drinks were amazing and it would be a great place to begin the night.
CVI.CHE 105: Miami is known for Latin/South American food, take advantage of that. This was an incredible Peruvian restaurant where I got the fish ceviche and it was amazing, amazing, amazing.
LIV: this is the classic Miami club, try to get in through promoters so you don’t have to pay a cover!
Basement Miami: a cool bowling alley and ice rink lit in neon + a bar. The drinks are hella expensive though. (I don’t really recommend ice skating and drinking anyways!)
SLS South Beach: think frat pool party with $12 beers. Super fun though if you’re looking to day drink. It’s something you can’t/shouldn’t do when you’re older so take it all in now!
Wynwood Walls: super cool art installations in an ex-industrial park. Wynwood is more of the grungy, artsy area that shows a different face of Miami.
South Beach: the infamous, classic beach perfect for people watching. It stretches for miles and ps. this is where you meet promoters.
Art Deco District: my favorite place in Miami. This historic district boasts incredible retro architecture and tons of restaurants and shopping.
Washington Park Hotel: we stayed at WPH and absolutely loved it. It’s located in the Art Deco District and is perfect for a less expensive boutique style stay. There’s a pool, rooftops, a bar and a mini hangout area with games.
Enjoy your stay in the Magic City + drink a marg for me!
