Shopping Centre
“Lincoln Road is a world-famous shopping & dining promenade in the heart of South beach that features more than 200 national retailers, designer brands, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes. In South Beach, Lincoln Road is the place to be. Arguably Miami's most well-known shopping center, the Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach is full of stores, boutiques, art galleries, and museums. Nearly the entire area of this open-air mall is closed to automobile traffic, making it a great place to stroll and people watch. You'll find Urban Outfitters, Madewell, Steve Madden, Melissa Shoes, Scotch & Soda, Nike, Lacoste, Forever 21, Adidas by Stella McCartney, BCBG Max Azria, Anthropologie, Ted Baker, Zara, Victoria’s Secret, American Eagle, Zadig & Voltaire, Lululemon Athletica, and more. There are over 50 eateries in this 10-block stretch, so it is a true diner's paradise. These restaurants include Sushi Samba, ​​Yard House, Mr. Bing, Pizza Rustica, Meat Market, Yuca, La Provence South Beach, Lokum Mediterranean Grill, Nexxt Café, and Rosa Mexicano. There are also a few breweries and hookah lounges like D’Vine Hookah Lounge, Hofbrau Beerhall, and The Abbey Brewing Co. Most stores are open daily from 10am – 11pm. Many restaurants, bars, and cafes on Lincoln Road remain open after the retail stores close.”

  • 136 locals recommend
Beach Bar

Mexican Restaurant
“When you first show up at Bodega, you could easily mistake it for a popular neighborhood taqueria. Between the Airstream trailer serving tacos and the picnic tables, it looks like a low-key spot. It is that, but as you see the Ubers full of models and clubgoers arriving and disappearing into the small taco joint, you get a sense there might be something more going on. Look around for a guy with an earpiece at the back of the room and tell him your friend sent you, and you might just get directed to a back door that looks like an entrance to a Porta Potti. Pass through here and you’ll enter a graffiti-filled men’s washroom. It’s only after passing through yet another door that you will enter one of South Beach’s hot hidden nightclubs. The mixologists have an extensive menu that relies heavily on “illegal” mezcal, and the DJ keeps the room pumping all through the night. It caters to a friendly, slightly older crowd and makes for a good introduction to the South Beach scene minus the cover charge and lineups that you’ll find at clubs closer to the beach.”

Art Museum
“Adult admission: $10 Hours: Wednesday through Monday, 10am to 5pm The Bass Museum of Art is located in Miami Beach. Founded in 1963, it originally consisted largely of the donated private collection of local residents John and Johanna Bass, though it has since more than doubled in size and now includes pieces from a wide range of artists and donors. The permanent galleries reopened in late 2017 with a significantly expanded collection. Unfortunately, the expansion work came at a hefty cost that’s now passed on to the once-free museum’s customers. Check ahead for special exhibitions, most of which feature work from specific contemporary artists.”
