Miami Retail Experiences

Kith | 1931 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Kith is a popular designer retail spot known for its stylish streetwear and sneakers. The first permanent location outside of New York, this South Beach flagship store is Kith’s “most elevated store to date” according to founder and creative director Ronnie Fieg. Don’t miss this spot on your tour if an archway of 500 cast Jordan V sneakers and Kith Treats ice cream (you read that right, ice cream) are on your bucket list.


Nike | 1035 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Nike needs no introduction, but their two-story, 31,000-square-foot storefront is probably new to you. In the heart of Miami Beach's shopping district, this multi-sport retail experience houses the brands best products and delivers them through unique spaces meant to immerse customers in sport. Whether you’re a soccer or basketball player, or a treadmill junkie, there's a place for you to play.

“Once again, we’re demonstrating how we are leading the future of sport retail.”
Heidi O’Neill, President of Global Direct to Consumer

Glossier | 140 NE 25th St, Miami, FL 33137

We hear pink is in right now. If you’re riding the Barbie wave (or should we say Corvette?) we recommend heading over to the iconic Palm Court Plaza, a pink boutique housing Miami’s only Glossier storefront location. Slather yourself in skin-care products at the Wet Bar and snap a selfie of your glammed-up self in the mirror of the "underwater room."


Miami Art Experiences

Original Selfie Museum | 179 NW 25th St, Miami, FL 33127

If you’re keen on keeping up with the cultural moment, check out Miami’s Original Selfie Museum, an interactive modern art gallery where you’re meant to get up close and personal with the exhibits. Tap into your creativity for some instagrammable shots at each selfie wall and have a laugh with your friends.

Superblue | 1101 NW 23rd St, Miami, FL 33127

A truly immersive art exhibit, Superblue offers a rotating set of exhibits that are designed to walk in, on, and through. The antithesis of your standard art gallery, Superblue activates all the senses, encompassing you in the art through sound, animation, and color, and inviting you to interactive every step of the way.


Goodtime Hotel | 601 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Sure, it’s not an art exhibit in the traditional sense of the word, but the Goodtime Hotel is a must visit destination for the exhibit-like quality of the space regardless of your guest status. Whether you’re reading in the library, lounging by the pool, or grabbing a bite at the café, the calming tones, lush foliage, and Miami flare will help you unwind and, dare we say, guarantee a good time.

Miami Restaurant Experiences

Sexy Fish | 1001 S Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33130

Located in the heart of Brickell in downtown Miami, Sexy Fish is an over-the-top Asian dining experience serving Japanese-inspired cuisine. The décor is dynamic, the menu creative and the experience memorable in this self-described mid-century glamour and opulence designed restaurant. Pro tip – don’t forget to check out the bathrooms!

Sexy Fish

Doya | 347 NW 24th St, Miami, FL 33127

Recipient of the Michelin Guide’s Big Gourmad award, Doya is a contemporary Greek and Turkish restaurant in the Wynwood neighborhood. Taking inspiration from the Meze culture and greater Mediterranean region, chef Erhan Kostepen keeps traditions alive by cooking over a live fire and using seasonal ingredients. Order the shared plates with family and friends to stay true to Doya’s principle that food tastes better when shared.


Jaya | 2001 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Head to Jaya for a truly spectacular, all-encompassing dining experience celebrating Southeast Asian cuisine. From the standout dishes, to the lively and inviting vibe, to the modern and artful design, Jaya is making a name for itself in Miami and, in our opinion, is a must-visit eating destination.


No matter which neighborhood you explore, Miami offers countless diverse shopping, art, and dining experiences. Let us know if you check out one of our favorites and don’t forget to reach out if you’ll be at RestaurantSpaces this fall – we’d love to connect!
