No city captures the spirit of Art Deco quite like Miami. The colourful buildings of South Beach came from the building boom of the 1930s, after a hurricane had devastated the city. Beautifully symmetrical, elegant and dipped in shades of pastel, take a stroll down Ocean Drive and Collins Avenue with our dreamy Miami moodboard. Just in time for Art Miami.
What to do in Miami?
Tucked in a small side street in the centre of South Beach, Española Way is an area that brings together Latin American style bars, restaurants and live music lounges that perfectly encapsulate Miami’s multicultural roots.
While this two-storey music venue is a popular spot for the underground music aficionados, the Electric Pickle Company still manages to create an intimate party scene. Best known for their techno, with DJ regulars include Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap and Nick Monaco, almost any night at Electric Pickle is a success.
Bardot is a cosy live music venue attracting some of today’s best DJs. Whether it’s Funk and Motown mixed in with R&B or deep techno, it mainly depends on the DJs mood, which in our experience, is always spot-on. The venue has pool tables and an intimate setting, creating a living room ambiance.
Perez Art Museum Miami, which was inaugurated just last year, houses one of the greatest collections of contemporary art in Miami. Showcasing works by renowned artists such as Ai Weiwei, Wifredo Lam, Robert Rauschenberg and Donald Judd, the range of contemporary art pieces is astonishing and definitely worth the visit.
