Decked out with one of the densest collections of street art in the world, Wynwood is Miami’s main destination for creatives and counter culturalists, most commonly in the form of generation-blending, artisanal-anything-loving hipsters. This unique hub of local culture has its own style of bars, restaurants and galleries worth checking out.
This 4,500-sq-ft warehouse gallery attracts renowned artists from around the world. A backyard lot with murals and the main viewing space combine to accommodate private parties, photo shoots, fashion shows and gallery openings throughout the year.
Wynwood Walls is the neighborhood’s main attraction, with professionally-curated street art spread out across a complex of painted walls and sectioned off viewing spaces. From a Peter Tunney exhibition space to a Shepard Fairey wall, the attraction maintains a prestigious quality throughout all the work it shows.
This art-filled restaurant is actually located inside Wynwood Walls, and its food is as hipster as its aesthetic. The ropa vieja empanadas celebrate local Cuban culture, while their roasted jalapeño guacamole and hamachi ceviche are delicious, popular sharing plates.
Gigi’s main components are all hipster favorites—noodles, barbecue and beer. Sit on a modern steel stool and look out the floor-to-ceiling window while indulging in pork ramen, raw tuna, or sweet corn hushpuppies.
Gramps is a favorite drinking spot and music venue in Wynwood with a backyard sandpit hangout, cheap beer at all hours of the night, and a trendy young crowd. From ladies’ nights to trivia to sing alongs, there’s something cool and hip happening at Gramps every night of the week.
Self-described as “an intimate, liquor-fueled love machine,” the Electric Pickle Company is one of Wynwood’s most popular music venues and bars. Catch live shows in their 3,500-sq-ft concert hall and outdoor patio while sipping on a bacon bourbon old fashioned.
