Over the past few years Wynwood, Miami has completely revitalized its streets; welcoming tourists and locals to immerse themselves in a colorful culture that will always have them coming back for more. Located in the heart of Miami’s Art Design District, Wynwood offers one-stop blocks featuring delicious food, unique shopping, vibrant nightlife, and of course, the infamous Wynwood Walls.
Tony Goldman, South Beach developer, took Wynwood to the next level adding street after street of avant-garde imagery that creates a utopia for art-lovers of all ages. With more than 70 art galleries in the area, you can essentially park your car on any street corner and dive into the community lifestyle. Whether the art is found in local shops like Charly’s Vegan Tacos, small independent theaters like O Cinema, or simply on the side of the road, you can’t escape the one-of-a-kind experience you’ll have in Wynwood.
Today Wynwood is the “go-to” spot for restaurant connoisseurs. Although the project started with artwork and street graffiti, there is no denying that Wynwood has slowly become the food mecca. If you are looking for great food, with an unforgettable ambiance, checkout Wynwood Kitchen & Bar. Showcasing distinctive wallpaper murals by street artist Shepard Fairey, this Latin-influenced cuisine is served small plate style, allowing guests the freedom to mix and match their food to acquire their personal taste. After dinner, walk on over to Mr. Kream Wynwood, an ice cream lounge that is as colorful as it’s options. Offering a variety of savory treats, there is surely something to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Although Wynwood is known for their artwork and amazing food, it’s also a hubbub for all things shopping. Each retail shop offers an individual experience that is different from every other mall in Miami. From bohemian boutiques to trendy stores, Wynwood’s shopping is an adventure all its own. If you are looking for a shop that offers a plethora of items, look no further than The Wynwood Shop. This store provides unique, local goods that range from jewelry and fashion accessories to artwork and beauty products. Each nook of the store features different brands/artists that reflects a high-end flea market vibe.
For the outgoing night owl, Wynwood offers a wide variety of night life that will keep you preoccupied until the sun rises. For those of you that like dancing the night away, tryout Coyo Taco. When you walk into this “restaurant” you can dine in and feast on some delicious tacos, or walk down the hall to find a place where the taco-loving party animals can let loose on a spacious dance floor.
Since the revitalization of the Wynwood area you can see over 200 street murals, which is more than any other city in the world. Although Wynwood is a small area, it can captivate your imagination as far as the eye can see. So, grab a friend, and don’t forget your camera phone, and get some Instagram-worthy photos that you will treasure for a lifetime.
