If you’re unfamiliar with Miami, chances are you’ve still seen photos of the quintessential, colorful backdrops of Miami’s art district, otherwise known as Wynwood. The once-desolate, rundown neighborhood was transformed about four years ago thanks to Goldman Properties, and now rests as one of the hottest, trendiest neighborhoods of the Magic City. While photos by the unique Wynwood Walls are an obvious go-to, here’s a more in-depth guide to exploring the neighborhood at its best.

WHERE TO DINE 

Joey’s Wynwood

The neighborhood hot spot specializes in authentic Italian cuisine, serving up some of the best homemade pizza pies in the city. Famous for its fresh Italian pastas and pizzas, with a prime location amidst the Wynwood Walls, Joey’s is a must-try for locals, celebs and tourists alike no matter what time of day. We recommend “The Joey,” aptly named after owner Joey Goldman, cooked to a perfect crisp with pomodoro, mozzarella, portobello mushrooms, shallots & oregano.

The popular food truck turned brick-and-mortar gourmet donut shop is a must-try if you’re heading to Wynwood. While there’s guaranteed to be a line, we promise that it is worth the wait. Be sure to try their signature Traditional Glazed Buttermilk or Brown Butter with Salt Donuts, as well as whatever they’ve whipped up as their weekly special.

WHAT TO DO

 

Now On View In New York- Peter Tunney’s TIME CAPSULES

In Wynwood, there is no shortage of activities. On any given day, there could be an art pop-up or a concert along the Wynwood stretch of graffiti’d streets. If you’re lucky enough, you may be there during Art Walk, a local event that takes place on the second Saturday of every month. Here, you can find food trucks galore, live music, art activations and so much more. If it’s not art walk, another great option is to explore the streets—wherever you turn, you’ll find a new unique mural displayed along the buildings, so much so that you can spend your day finding new secret spots throughout the one-of-a-kind neighborhood. Stop at the Wynwood Walls for a photo, and continue roaming around popping in art shops like Peter Tunney or stores like Nomad Tribe, Boho Hunter and more.

WHERE TO WORK UP A SWEAT

WHERE TO GO OUT 

 

Coyo Taco Wynwood

For some pretty cocktails and bites with a view, head to Wynwood Kitchen and Bar located in the Wynwood Walls. This is the perfect spot to start your night, which features a long list of inventive drinks and delectable menu items. For something a bit more lively going later into the night, across the street is Wood Tavern, which is undoubtedly packed with locals and visitors alike on any given night of the week, especially for their Taco Tuesday. Down the street is also Coyo, a Mexican restaurant with a hip speakeasy lounge in the back.
