Located in the heart of the Wynwood District, Cafeina offers a gallery ambiance coupled with an array of tapas-style dishes. A space where art-meets-cuisine-meets-nightlife, Cafeina entertains guests with live music, whilst sating their appetites with entrées of Wagyu sliders or something from the new American-Latin inspired menu. This hipster’s paradise is dark and brooding, with eclectic chandeliers giving off mellow lighting and a sophisticated vibe. Meanwhile, the experienced mixologists provide a kick with their drinks, concocting tall glasses of Jamaican coffee, or soothing chamomile and bitters to ease your way into the evening.

Matt and David are the creators of KUSH, the ‘burger and beer joint’ with a twist in the heart of the Wynwood District. Matt, aka Kush, was already the owner of the ever- popular LoKal in Coral Gables, but had a clear vision for this new project. Offering what is rumoured to be the best beer in town alongside succulent chicken and fluffy waffles, KUSH laces familiar comfort food with gourmet quality. Creating a weekly beer tasting event and establishing Miami’s own Miami Brew Bus, Kush offers farm-to-table goodness served up with old-fashioned fun. Try the Johnny Utah burger with all the trimmings, named after everyone’s favourite character in Point Break.

The Wynwood Kitchen & Bar is one of the most visually arresting restaurants in the nation. The central bar area is covered with a vibrant collage created by street-artist Shepard Fairey, which is coupled well with the 20ft abstract paintings adorning the dining room walls, created by the aptly named German artist Christian Awe. In addition to this, David Benjamin Sherry’s multi-coloured sculptural man cuts an imposing 11ft figure at the entrance to the restaurant, silently declaring the harmony of food and art promised within. The restaurant sits adjacent to a gallery space and transforms into a popular live music venue on Saturday night. Order the steamed Brussels sprouts with bacon to go alongside chicken skewers with chipotle aioli and scallion, or opt for sautéed clams with sausage, caramelised onions, aji panca broth and sweet potato fries.
