Miami is known for a lot of things. But many will admit to booking a weekend trip, vacation, or a “just because” visit to the 305, simply for its nightlife scene. With “super-clubs” that took millions to build out, featuring the world’s top DJs and recording stars, to uber chic lounges frequented by Hollywood A-list celebs threes always something going on. Then you have the rise in waterfront venues offering rosé-filled day parties and dining, while gazing at the ocean (or latest trend; the Miami River).
Many credit a handful of restaurants for the newfound popularity of the Miami River District. But there is one spot, The Wharf that has hosted thousands since opening its doors. The 33, 000 square foot pop up event space has been home to large community events focusing on food, art, music and culture. At this point in time, very few living in South Florida have not at least heard of The Wharf. (Ask Tyson Beckford, and CeeLo Green who have been seen there many a time among others). The venue which sits on a bend in the Miami River, boasts a unique footprint, and has welcomed locals and tourists alike (by car or boat). This dynamic hotspot recently debuted its new and improved version; state of the art glass- enclosure and air-conditioned area (just in time for a World Cup event hosted by David Beckham no less). If you haven’t been, they are open from Thursday through Sunday offering great drinks specials, happy hour, live music and DJs. You can bring the kiddos or Fido but check their website for dress code, age requirements, list of hours and special events.
