Located just north of Downtown Miami, Wynwood has experienced a renaissance in recent years that has attracted an abundance of artists, galleries, retailers, and some of Miami’s most popular restaurants, bars, and entertainment.
Until the early 2000’s, this was primarily an industrial neighborhood dealing with varying degrees of blight. The large blank slate of vacant industrial buildings provided dramatic canvasses for muralists and street artists. The local arts scene repurposed old warehouse buildings into lofts, transforming the neighborhood to a hub of social interaction and artistic innovation. Millennials and young professionals have since followed, but the neighborhood has kept its creative, funky flavor.
Restaurants and bars such as Cafeina, Zak the Baker, Coyo Taco, Joey’s, Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, Wood Tavern, Brick Miami, and Panther Coffee provide the community with a lively social scene. The consistently high foot traffic brought on by the local art venues and restaurants makes Wynwood especially attractive to creative businesses with employers such as Pacific 54 and Lab Miami calling the neighborhood home.
