As it becomes North America’s hot destination, our Miami Virtual Guide explores why city dwellers looking for a WFH oasis are drawn to this colourful city with its growing arts and cultural scene.
Miami’s biggest import as of late: New Yorkers – and we’re not just talking people, we’re talking restaurants, including favourites Carbone, Prince Street Pizza and the soon-to-open Sadelle’s. Boutiques stock NYC designers via trunk shows at venues such as Circular Gallery, a sustainable multi-brand hub located at Ironside. This office and showroom complex in a rainforest-inspired space, complete with hanging vines and banana leaves, illustrates why remote workers have flocked to Miami, leaving sterile high-rise offices behind.
In fashion, Miami remains a hub for Latin designers, introducing them to a global audience. Simonett is the hottest local brand, with its bold and quirky style taking over the Miami Design District.
New outdoor shopping centre Upper Buena Vista focuses on healing and bohemian exploration with its 120-year-old ‘wishing’ tree sitting at its centre. With a focus on authenticity, the Tulum-inspired space houses artisanal shops, juice bars and a meditation centre.
For a touch of wellness, The Sacred Space offers a plant-filled tropical escape with its indoor-outdoor space which includes a vegan restaurant, Plant Miami, and a chic market.
