A few weeks back we opened a new store in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. (It looks like a pool inside!)

Not to our surprise, we’ve completely fallen in love in the neighborhood—so much so that we wanted to share a list of our favorite local gems.

1) Wynwood Walls

Just a light stroll from our shop is Wynwood Walls, a street art mecca that houses some of the most impressive graffiti murals in the world. (Make sure your phone is charged, because there are some solid Instagram photo ops here.)

Another tip: Wynwood Walls doesn’t technically open until 11 a.m., but you can sneak in early if you grab a bite to eat at jugofresh (more on that a bit down).

2) Panther Coffee

After hearing quite a lot of buzz about this place before we even landed in Miami, we can now attest that Panther Coffee is among the top coffee shops in town. Their cold brew is very tasty, and their empanadas are out of this world.

Chilling tip: If you’re a freelancer type, their patio has plenty of outdoor seating and electrical outlets—perfect for working (on your base tan).

3) Bookleggers

What goes better with a pair of new glasses than a newish book? Not much, we’d assume. That’s why we love Bookleggers, a mobile library that’s stationed just a few blocks from our store. We would say more, but the photo above is worth a thousand words.

4) Rubell Family Collection

Unassuming from the outside, the Rubell Family Collection houses one of the largest private contemporary art collections in North America. The space was formerly used as a Drug Enforcement Agency confiscated goods facility, which means it’s massive enough to host some pretty great works (think Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, etc.) in a pleasant, roomy environment.

5) jugofresh

It turns out that Miami is a hot place. Luckily, jugofresh offers cold-pressed juices, feel-good foods, joyous green walls, 90s hip-hop playlists, and a wall of fans. It is a blissful zone.

Local tip: We suggest getting there early and grabbing a table out back, where you have a firsthand view of Wynwood Walls.
