Miami en es. Time Out Miami. Sure, South Beach holds some of the best restaurants in Miami and the best bars in Miami. So take a look at some of our favorite South Beach activities below.
And see South Beach the right way. What is it? Why go? Patrons should also keep an eye out for the colorful public art that constantly moves through the museum lawn. Because this is just about the only place in Miami made for pedestrians. It boasts ample metered parking, plus the park features access to both the beach and a walkable pier. The coolest karaoke jam in the city. Novak cheers you on, beguiles audiences during awkward moments of harmonizing and even sings backup should the opportunity arise. Find the beloved mixologist Punk Rock Chris for a drink and a lesson in obscure cult films.
Fellows from around the world regularly put on concerts. Looking to keep it casual? The Art-Deco—era building also houses youth programs and offers free guided tours every Friday at 6pm. The nearly year-old museum explores thousands of years of sex through classical art, ancient artifacts and a trove of sex toys. In addition to housing a huge collection of erotic art, WEAM features a sizeable collection of antique penises.
A fraction of the size of most SoBe watering holes, Minibar lives up to its name with a diminutive space in an out-of-sight location inside the Urbanica the Meridian Hotel—a boutique property whose bright midcentury decor offers no glimmer of the dark, cozy bar decked in bold, jewel-toned patterns lurking within. You can breeze through this small cultural center in less than 30 minutes.
It is also State Road A1A. Collins is home to many historic Art Deco hotels, and several nightclubs to the north, including Mynt and Rokbar. Today it consists of restaurants, bars, art galleries, and quirky shops. Alton Road is the main westside north-south street located blocks from Biscayne Bay. On the part that traverses South Beach, the road is host to many local businesses, including dry cleaners, small furniture stores, small grocery markets, non-chain restaurants and fast food restaurants. It is mainly residential once it crosses Michigan Avenue north of South Beach.
Washington Avenue is one of the best-known streets in South Beach. Running parallel with Ocean and Collins, Washington is notorious for having some of the world's largest and most popular nightclubs, such as Cameo and Mansion. During "season" the street is jammed with traffic until early in the morning as late as 6 am every night of the week. In the s explosion of South Beach as a nightclub venue, its nightclub moguls included Ingrid Casares, whose investors included the singer Madonna.
Joe's Stone Crab
Washington Avenue is also home to countless shops, hotels, and such noted architectural features as Temple Emanu-El. Al Capone and vacationing billionaires from the Golden Age made these hotels their winter hideaway. By the , the hotels fell into ruin and tourists abandoned this side of South Beach for the oceanside.
All three properties, along with the rest of the Corridor, have since evolved into a middle-class, mixed use residential neighborhood. Each passing decade saw the addition of new architectural styles that enhance the diversity and appeal of the neighborhood. Amenities for residents and visitors include shopping, houses of worship, cafes, restaurants, parks and gyms. Vacationers, homeowners and renters can find an abode to suit any style in this neighborhood that supports a combination of single family homes, original art deco buildings, MiMo mid-rises and contemporary high density high-rises.
The Corridor is home to almost 10, residents, over 40 different condominiums, several single family homes and a number of rental buildings. The neighborhood has changed over the years. The recent Census shows the neighborhood to be much younger and more year-round than in years past. It is highly walkable since it is a quiet neighborhood and is close to many amenities - Flamingo Park, Lincoln Road, the ocean, the nightlife of Ocean Drive and Washington Avenue, Whole Foods Market, Publix and many restaurants.
Located at 10th Street and West Avenue, The Shoppes at West Avenue, built almost 12 years ago by Gumenick Properties, hosts a locus of business activity that complements the residential community. There is a parking garage disguised by the architecture and on the ground level are shops such as Starbucks, one of the most neighborly on the Beach, Oliver's Bistro, a local "joint" with a European flair overseen by the welcoming and gracious owner, Hagen Taudt, a dry cleaner, the South Beach Animal Hospital, a spa, Massage by Design and other businesses.
One could say the Corridor has come full circle - the forefathers intentions were to create a magical lifestyle in a tropical paradise, and the residents who now make their home along the Bay fulfill and continue that lifestyle. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
