Weekend Away: Downtown Miami
October 2, 2014
From the InterContinental Miami's 200-foot high digital canvas showcasing skyline dancers high above the bay to the dozens of swanky restaurants making the move from the Beach to downtown, the center of gravity is shifting in Miami.
Once business is done for the day and the sun goes down, the area is transformed into a pedestrian nightlife scene where locals and visitors can be seen walking from their condo or hotel to various restaurants, bars and clubs. Restaurants such as Toro Toro, Zuma, and Cipriani cater to these crowds by staying open late and offering high quality food and drinks in sophisticated atmospheres, where business and leisure travelers can all feel at home. China Grill, the longtime SoBe mainstay, is on its way to Brickell Avenue later this year.
Entertainment options are endless – from taking in Miami Heat, to catching a concert or play at the Adrianne Arsht Center for Performing Arts. And of course, night owls have their choice of clubs, with the newest debut – E11EVEN staying open 24/7.
WHERE TO STAY:
- hotel closest to the port. Cruise-goers who request an east-facing room can even spot their ship from their hotel room just across the bay. The hotel is fresh off a $30 million renovation which included:
A 19-story ‘digital canvas' that illuminates the downtown skyline each night, multimedia features throughout the hotel, fully-renovated suites designed by tennis star Venus Williams' V Starr Interiors, and the debut of
, a Pan-Latin steakhouse by celebrity chef Richard Sandoval.
WHERE TO DINE:
the sleek, sexy restaurant and lounge in Downtown Miami just announced the launch of its new fall menu featuring delectable small plates, Prime steaks, fresh seafood and creative desserts and cocktails.
located in the Epic Hotel next door, is always packed with celebrities looking to dine on modern Japanese dishes and cocktails.
WHAT TO SEE:
– winter visitors escaping the cold will relish the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. We have Bayfront park and museum park along the waterfront….and we will have bike sharing up and running in downtown beginning in November.
- contemporary art museum located within the new Museum Park in Downtown Miami, Florida. The almost-one-year-old Pérez Art Museum Miami has shattered projections, welcoming more than 150,000 visitors just in its first four months.
Entertainment options are endless – from taking in Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat, to catching a concert or play at the
Adrianne Arsht Center for Performing Arts
And of course, night owls have their choice of clubs, with the newest debut –
staying open 24/7.
WHERE TO SHOP:
Lost Boy Dry Goods
newly opened American denim boutique in Downtown Miami, offering jeans, shirts and accessories for men and women. This is the highest quality denim from around the world within walking distance of the port.
- a Downtown staple and retail destination.
